Honda NSX will end after 6 years. Farewell to the Type S version

While the first generation Honda NSX has been in production for 15 long years, the second generation will pack it in just six years.

The Japanese carmaker has confirmed that it will end production of the current NSX (sold under the Acura brand in the United States) in December next year. Production began in May 2016.

But it’s probably not a big surprise, the NSX probably doesn’t sell as Honda originally expected and has even withdrawn from some markets in recent months. And in the USA, for example, only 128 units were sold in 2020, in Europe even only 8. However, you will not officially buy the NSX on the old continent, Europe is one of the markets that the car left at the end of last year.

In any case, the hybrid supersport with a six-cylinder fork located in the middle will say goodbye to a special version of the Type S, which will be presented to the public on August 13 at an event called The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering in Carmel-By-The-Sea, California.

We do not know exactly how the Type S will differ from the standard variant, but the carmaker has at least revealed some design changes through several published photos.

For example, the Type S gets a red engine cover, dark exterior elements such as matte black handles or a glossy black rear spoiler, of course, there are logos with a sportier design.

Modifications to technology and increased performance have also been confirmed. The hybrid system in the standard version, which consists of two turbocharged 3.5-liter six-cylinder and three electric motors, provides a maximum output of 427 kW and the highest torque of 676 Nm Honda will probably also play with the chassis.

Production of NSX Type S will be limited to 350 copies. However, Honda no longer thinks of European customers, the Type S will only be offered in Japan and the USA.
