The brand new Acura NSX is expected to receive a number of variants, potentially including both Type R and Roadster models.
While the NSX is underpinned by a bespoke platform, the car’s chief engineering, Jason Bilotta, revealed to Car Advice that the architecture has been designed to suit more than one version.
“You know, I have designed this platform to be able to accommodate different variants on it and use it as a [scalable] platform.
“So, while we can’t speculate about what will happen in the future, there is the ability to make some variants or derivatives, so hopefully – depending on the market response – we will be able to provide that,” Bilotta confirmed.
Of course, these models will only be launched if demand is strong enough for the standard car and if Acura can drum up enough interest in other versions.
