The team at Acura has detailed development and construction of the V6 engine that powers the NSX. Hand-built in a specialized facility, the twin-turbo motor has powered the NSX GT3 race car to multiple championships with little-to-no modification.

“The development leaders of the original NSX told us not to copy what they did. NSX is all about pushing into the future and going beyond. The core thing is that it’s not technology for technology’s sake – it’s technology in service to our customers, and it makes me extremely proud,” explains Ted Klaus, who served as the global development leader for NSX. “This is an engine that is truly worthy of the name ‘NSX’.”
