2017 Acura NSX With Custom Exhaust Runs The 1/4 Mile In 11 Seconds

Unlike the Tesla Model S, Challenger Hellcat or McLaren 720S, we haven’t seen the 2017 Acura NSX doing a lot of quarter-mile runs.

Some might say the reason is that it doesn’t have a monstrous amount of power, with a reasonable 581 PS (573 HP) and 686 Nm (506 lb-ft) of torque at its disposal. Well, reasonable for a modern supercar, that is.

Then again, it has been known to demolish the likes of the Lamborghini Aventador and Nissan GT-R in a straight line, so the new NSX is anything but slow.

In this particular case, we’ve got a mostly stock version that’s been fitted with a Fabspeed exhaust system, which definitely makes its presence felt (or rather heard), as it sounds a little more aggressive than usual.

We already knew the NSX could get from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in about 3 seconds flat. However, if you let it go a while longer, it will cover a 1/4 mile in just over 11 seconds and hitting a speed of 124 mph (200 km/h). Not bad at all, is it?

    Very impressive numbers. Got to hand it to Honda.

  • An Existing Person

    I’d still rather have a GTR, despite it being almost 10 years old.

  • GobbleUp

    11.299 not great for the $180k price, sans costs for the upgrades.

  • Taegon Lewis

    Impressive; but, I would still rather get the previous NSX (RHD, with actual Honda badging), than its Americanized/hybrid-powered successor.

    so basically there’s goes another reason not the get an E63S instead

    • Stigasawuswrecks

      My CTS-V does an 11.6 and it has an antiquated pushrod motor.

      • smartacus

        And it probably laps Laguna Seca faster too.
        i track tested a CTS-V once, it knows how to dance.

    Sounds good, like half of a supercar engine or something. Definitely seems to shift lighting quick like a supercar though (or any PDK Porsche for that matter). Just wish this car was more extreme. Its so capable yet tame, logical, and the inside is almost a complete let-down to be honest. Problem is it just looks and sounds more Honda Accord than Lambo/Ferrari. And at $200k, lets face it, we want drama and awesomeness. Were it $90k, I’d be WAAAY more excited by the NSX.
