Showcasing authentic performance enhancements at this year’s SEMA Autoshow in Las Vegas Acura (Honda’s premium brand) has collaborated with ScienceofSpeed to create an aftermarket interpretation of the ultimate NSX.
The ‘Dream Project’ NSX features optimized engine performance through liquid injection intercooling and free-flowing high-performance downpipes and exhaust, resulting in a combined 610 bhp (37 bhp more than the standard car) and 687 Nm of torque (42 Nm more).
A more aggressive stance is achieved with the ScienceofSpeed lowering kit and wider Advan GT forged wheels. To make approaching difficult driveways and speed bumps easier, ScienceofSpeed integrated automatic sensing suspension technology from iLIFT which uses patented sensors to automatically raise the front axle of the NSX by 500 mm when obstacles are detected.
The Dream Project NSX features thoughtfully executed exterior and interior styling enhancements including a gloss black roof in homage to the first-generation NSX, a more aggressive GT3 inspired aero kit and custom interior highlighted by Recaro racing seats.
Also on display at the SEMA shown is the Acura ARX-05 Daytona Prototype which marks the brand’s return to prototype racing along with Team Penske. The ARX-05 will make its competition debut in the Rolex 24 at Daytona in January 2018 with two teams and winning drivers.
The ARX-05 [Acura Racing eXperimental, generation 5] is the latest in a successful line of endurance prototypes fielded by the brand beginning more than 25 years ago. The prototype racing car utilizes the race-proven AR35TT twin-turbocharged engine, based on the production 3.5-litre V6 that powers the Acura MDX, RDX, TLX and RLX.
