The 2019 Acura NSX that will makes its appearance in Canada will include chassis upgrades, new tire specification and Sport Hybrid power unit tuning.
New for 2019, a Thermal Orange Pearl premium paint option continues the tradition of NSX colour names inspired by motorsports venues and iconic corners, and pays homage to 30 years of Acura motorsports vehicles with orange accented liveries. Joining the Thermal Orange Pearl exterior, optional carbon ceramic metallic (CCM) brakes can now be fitted with orange calipers. New for 2019, the standard iron brakes can now be fitted with red calipers.
All 2019 NSX models will have a new body-colour front grille garnish (previously silver) and high-gloss treatments for the front grille surround, front air intake mesh and rear bumper outlet mesh. High-gloss treatment is also applied to the available Carbon Fiber Decklid Spoiler and Carbon Fiber Exterior Package – including a front chin spoiler, side sill garnish and rear diffuser.
Chassis enhancements include larger front and rear stabilizer bars (increasing stiffness by 26 percent in front, 19 percent at the rear) and 21 per cent stiffer rear toe link bushings. Rear hub rigidity has increased six per cent. Software calibrations to the NSX’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD power unit, active magnetorheological dampers, electric power steering and VSA settings capitalize on this new hardware, as well as the grippier tire setup.
The 2019 NSX rides on new Continental SportContact 6 tires, developed exclusively for the NSX.
