The 2005 Acura NSX: Timeless Performance and Style

Torrance, Calif. 09/01/2004 -- The NSX supercar exemplifies the precision crafted performance that lies at the heart of every Acura vehicle. Developed out of years of racing experience, the NSX sets the benchmark for Acura, combining world-class performance and styling with exceptional drivability and refinement.

"The NSX is the benchmark to which we compare all our other models in terms of performance and quality," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president, auto sales. "Our lineup is stronger than it has ever been and the NSX is a crucial component of that lineup. To many of our customers, it's an icon of our brand."

The NSX offers two distinct, mid-ship mounted powertrains. The first is a lightweight, all-aluminum 3.2 liter, DOHC, 24-valve, 90-degree V-6 engine coupled with a 6-speed, close-ratio manual transmission producing 290 horsepower and 224 lb-ft of torque. The second is a 3.0-liter DOHC, 24-valve V-6 engine with a 4-speed Sequential SportShift automatic transmission that generates 252 horsepower and 210 lb.-ft. of torque.

Both NSX engines are equipped with Acura's patented Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC™), a Variable Volume Induction System, direct ignition and a computerized Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system pioneered in Formula One racing. The NSX engine also features titanium connecting rods, which are stronger and lighter than comparable steel connecting rods.

To complement these innovative powertrains, the NSX chassis features an all-aluminum unit body construction that is 40 percent lighter, yet has the rigidity of a steel structure. The 4-wheel independent double-wishbone suspension features aluminum-alloy control arms and hub carriers that minimize unsprung weight and provide optimum handling. The suspension also features aluminum subframes for the front and rear suspension to further reduce weight. Forged-aluminum alloy wheels reduce unsprung weight while super high performance tires - 215/40 R17 in front and 255/40 R17 in the rear - provide maximum traction and handling.

The NSX's braking system features large-diameter, ventilated four-wheel discs and an advanced 4-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) for confident braking. A sophisticated Traction Control System (TCS) helps limit wheel-spin and enhances control.

The 2005 NSX features a removable roof panel for open-air driving. A sculpted, wedge-shaped body and forward canopy design clearly communicate the car's high performance personality. Additional features include a body integrated rear spoiler and airfoil, power operated sideview mirrors and Xenon High-Intensity Discharge projector-beam headlights.

The NSX comes in seven exterior colors, which can be ordered with a matching or complementary interior color.

Inside, the hand-stitched, leather-trimmed interior of the NSX is designed to evoke the image of a jet fighter cockpit, providing excellent visibility, easy-to-read instrumentation and supportive, power operated seats. As with all Acura models, the NSX comes with a long list of standard equipment and comfort and convenience features including an Automatic Climate Control System, a keyless entry system, power windows and door locks, cruise control and a theft deterrent system with electronic immobilizer. The premium Acura/Bose® Music System is equipped with a trunk-mounted 6-Disc CD changer.

Advanced safety features include a supplemental airbag restraint system (SRS) and 3-point seat belts with automatic pretensioners. Substantial front and rear crumple zones are designed to distribute impact energy around the passenger compartment in the event of a collision, while large side-sill extensions and sturdy support beams in each door help protect the cabin from side impact forces.
