Supercars are those things that only exist in many people’s dreams. I mean normal people don’t really need to drive a car that goes from 0 to 200 mph in a matter of second. The only people who own supercars are either celebrities or millionaires. Similarly, there are also not that many manufacturers for supercars mainly because how expensive it is and how limited the market for supercars. The best supercars manufacturers that most people know are either Ferrari, Lamborghini, or Bugatti, but dis you know that honda also has their own supercars ? Yup coming from Honda, the company who is known to make the family friendly car whose age can outlast the driver, comes the 2017 Acura NSX.

On the exterior, we can clearly see that Acura tries to make the 2017 NSX Acura to give a futuristic feeling in its design. We can see this through the use of that flaring nostril that hides the radiators and condenser. In a first glance, we can see how the design is also influenced by the Italian supercars with the use of the virile flair that is very common among Italian supercars. The frame used in the 2017 NSX Acura is mostly made out of aluminium but at some components, there is also some use carbon fiber like in the trunk and the roof panel.
Much like the other modern cars, the 2017 NSX Acura also uses various driving modes to satisfy all your driving needs. There is the basic mode called the sports mode and then there is also the quiet mode where the car will minimize the performance to give a quieter and smooth driving experience. In this mode, all exhausts baffles and other components are closed which cause the speed to cap at 4000 rpm. There is also sport plus mode where you are basically going all out making the car feels more aggressive and wild, but still maintains a decent driving experience.
