Honda NSX Type R

Just a few days ago, it emerged that a more potent Honda NSX Type R variant is on the cards. On the back of this news, X-Tomi Design has rendered how the car could look.

Compared to the standard Honda NSX, the Type R variant rendered features additional air intakes at the front end alongside a lowered ride height, new sports wheels as well as beefed up brakes complete with red painted calipers.

When the original Honda NSX launched in 1990, it was joined by an R variant two years later which adopted revised suspension and a lighter body. If history is anything to go by, that means the new Honda NSX Type R could launch in about two years.

As for the ‘regular’ 2016 Honda NSX, it features a twin-turbocharged double overhead cam V6 engine mated to a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission and joined with no less than three electric motors. One of those electric motors powers the rear wheels while the other two send power to the front wheels to make the 2016 Honda NSX all-wheel drive. Performance specifications have yet to be revealed nor have horsepower and torque ratings.

  1. Umm… looks like a nice 2016 NSX, but a terrible attempt at Type R. Type R should not and will not have polished wheels. Color should be Championship White. The roof will probably be black and the car needs red accents other than calipers. Where are the RED backed Type R Acura/Honda logos? Nice try, but no dice. I’ll have to give this one a go and show how it should be done. Look out for my update.
