Honda reveals NSX Type S at Monterey Car Week

Honda reveals NSX Type S at Monterey Car Week

5 views

592bhp limited-edition hybrid supercar makes its debut.

The ultimate version of the Honda NSX has been revealed at the Monterey Car Week in the USA. 


Only 350 examples of the 592bhp NSX Type S will be made, with increased performance and sharpened-up dynamics. It will be the final edition of the hybrid supercar, and only 50 will be sold outside the States, where it is assembled at the company’s Ohio plant.  As well as the 27bhp power increase, its torque output is increased by 22Nm to 667Nm, using a 3.5-litre V6 engine and an electric motor.


The extra power comes courtesy of turbochargers developed on the NSX GT3 Evo race car, along with bigger intercoolers and high pressure fuel injectors. It also has a 20 per cent increase in battery power and a 10 per cent higher battery output. The nine-speed dual clutch transmission has also been revised to give faster upshifts and more aggressive downshifts, whilst holding the paddle down lets the driver skip gears and keep revs high.


The Type S gets a wider track courtesy of fatter new wheels, while uprated Brembo brakes and bespoke Pirelli P-Zero tyres complete the performance package. Inside, there’s new Alcantara headlining and embroidered Type S logos on the glovebox and head restraints. The Honda NSX Type S will not officially be sold in the UK, but prices will start at $171,495 (£123,800) in the US.
