A new top honor has been added to the growing list of Acura NSX awards. Surpassing eight top sports car competitors with its virile blend of performance power, superb stylishness, and emotional involvement, the NSX has claimed the title of Road & Track’s “2017 Performance Car of the Year.”

About the Award

For five consecutive years and counting, Road & Track’s editors have selected a “Performance Car of the Year” winner, basing the decision on testing that is conducted over a period of four days. Two of the competition days are devoted to driving the back roads of Tennessee and Kentucky, and the other two days are spent on the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park track, located in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

In order to be in the running for the award, a vehicle must either be a brand-new model or have undergone significant revamping for the new model year.

During the four allotted days of testing, the editors and writers for Road & Track assess each competing car on the basis of performance, value, and emotion.

Winning Qualities

A major factor in the NSX’s big win is the distinctive driving experience that it delivers. A variety of assets offered onboard the Acura NSX are designed to significantly enrich the driving experience for motorists, including the car’s brake-by-wire pedal, the delivery of its mighty V6 engine, and the car’s precise accelerating, braking, and cornering qualities.

The winning NSX model has hues in Valencia Red Pearl. It features power seats of semi-aniline red Alcantara leather along with a carbon fiber sport package, a carbon fiber roof, and a carbon fiber decklid spoiler. The car also offers a premium audio system, distinctive Y-spoke wheels, and more.

About the Acura NSX

The new Acura NSX supercar came to the market in spring 2016, wowing the driving world with its innovative three-motor, twin-turbocharged Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) powertrain, which delivers an incredible system output of 573 hp.

The NSX holds the honor of being the only supercar that is crafted in America, with its production taking place exclusively at the Marysville, Ohio Performance Manufacturing Center.
