The new NSX is built on an aluminum and steel frame with a carbon-fiber floor. The body panels are made of aluminum and a fiberglass-like composite. This light body shell should help offset the mass of the hybrid and electric components, but Acura hasn't announced curb weight yet. Engineers proclaim the NSX has the lowest center of gravity in its class, which bodes well for handling, but for certain this won't be the skinny-jeans NSX of old. We expect it to weigh around 700 pounds more than the original, or 3,700 pounds total.
Inside, there's a vast canvas of leather and aluminum befitting an expensive sports car, a racy, flat-bottom steering wheel, tall center console, high door sills and a floating center stack. Various driving modes, including a track setting and low-speed, electric-only operation, will be available.
