Acura NSX Dream Project By ScienceOfSpeed Coming To SEMA With 610HP

The 2017 SEMA Show is fast approaching, and automakers and tuners alike have announced their presence with some impressive creations.

ScienceOfSpeed is one of them, and they will have the Acura NSX ‘Dream Project’ on display in Las Vegas, which features a small power boost, in addition to the visual enhancements applied both on the outside and in the cabin.

The supercar’s powertrain now makes a combined 610hp (619PS) and 507lb-ft (687Nm) of torque, or 37hp (38PS) and 31lb-ft (42Nm) more than the stock models. The extra muscle comes courtesy of the liquid injected intercooling and stainless steel exhaust system, which shaves 16lbs (7kg) from its weight.

These are joined by a custom suspension lowering kit, which brings it more than 1 inch (25mm) closer to the road, and features patented sensors that automatically raise its front axle by 2 inches (51mm), when obstacles are detected.

On the visual front, the Acura NSX Dream Project has a new aero kit, highlighted by the wider carbon fiber ducted rocker panels, aggressive front strakes, rear wing, and large rear diffuser, which are said to “improve downforce while retaining factory design elements”. The Japanese sports machine now sits on 20×9-inch front and 21×12-inch rear wheels that spin around the carbon ceramic brakes made by Brembo, with a gold flake finish.

In the cabin, it has custom Recaro Pole Position racing seats, black leather with blue stitching, blue fabric with hexagonal pattern, and a gaugeART OLED multi-function display.

    Finally a good looking NSX

    Too bad the NSX is so expensive. It should top out at $149,000. NOT go over $200,000.

    • SteersUright

      And the base model, no options, should have been $100k.

  • Six_Tymes

    the car is over priced. but its good to see an after market company try to improve it, frankly it needs it.

  • GobbleUp

    Looks a lot better than Stock. Well done. Now about the stupid price of the Stock car….what a failed attempt by acura.

  • StrangerGP

    I wonder how long until Acura/Honda pulls the plug on the NSX project. No one is buying these cars and they probably can’t drop the price too much because of all the technology involved in making it.

  • Honda NSX-R

    About time he lost some weight.

  • b_digital

    I love the new NSX, especially in black. This tuned car looks horrible

  • Six Thousand Times

    Take out all three electric motors and their battery packs plus the inverters and miles of cable and you’d have a swell $120,000 – $135,000 sports car.

      Even though the electric SH-AWD setup is supposed to be the nouveau NSX’s ace-in-the-hole, I was really hoping to see a more track-focused stripped out model at SEMA as you described.

  • SteersUright

    This car is already so complex I dont think I’d want any aftermarket tuning done to mine if I owned it. Leave that warranty intact please. Now, as far as cosmetic? Bring it on.
