Japanese novelty, which will be called Acura NSX Type R, will be able to boast 650 horsepower, as well as a price tag of $ 200,000. It is assumed that the premiere of new items will be held at the Tokyo Motor Show.

Rumors about the appearance of a more powerful performance of the Japanese NSX supercar come and go with an enviable constancy. At this time, the “fresh” data can be trusted, because they come from a very authoritative source – the publication Forbes. A report released today says that Acura is indeed working on an improved version of its electrified supercar, and will present us with its final version in a few months. According to rumors, the faster NSX will receive the “Type R” suffix and will be shown in October at the 46th Tokyo Auto Show in Japan.

The report discusses some of the technical characteristics, the most important of which is to increase the power to 650 horsepower.

If this data is correct, it turns out that the increase in power will be 77 hp compared to standard NSX. There is not a word about torque, although it is expected that it will also increase compared to the current 645 Nm.

It is not clear how power will be achieved, either by updating the 3.5-liter V6 with two turbines, or with the help of additional electric motors. There is also the possibility of tuning the motor and electric motors to increase the total power. Another mystery that remains to be solved is whether the all-wheel drive system will be SH-AWD in the new Type R.

While the standard Acura NSX costs at least $ 157,500. According to Forbes, the upcoming NSX Type R is also expected to receive an initial price of 200 thousand dollars.
