With the pandemic slowly easing up, manufacturers are looking to get back on track with producing vehicles and coming out with new models. Electric car brands like Lucid and Rivian have promised deliveries within the year, and legacy carmakers like Chevy have been getting their 2022 lineups ready.
Acura has been busy releasing its new line of second-generation NSX supercars for 2022. The final variant of the NSX for this generation is said to come with a wide array of updates, and it looks like consumers are excited for it.
Road and Track reported that Acura sold all of its NSX Type S vehicles nearly overnight.
How fast did the 2022 Acura NSX Type S sell out?
The new NSX Type S model was unveiled by Acura last month. Pre-ordering began last Friday, and it seemed to end there as well. Once orders opened up, it only took 24 hours for all 300 cars to be reserved.
Consumers that reserved the Type S were required to put down deposits to keep their spots. 100 more buyers just missed their chance and now wait anxiously on the waitlist for someone to withdraw their reservation.
Only 350 vehicles will be made in total, so this car will be a rare find once they’re out on the street. The Type S is meant to be a hand-crafted, quality piece of supercharged machinery. You’ll certainly be paying a hefty price for it if you were fast enough to grab one. The car starts at $169,500, and this will likely go up for anyone buying it later.
What’s new on the NSX Type S?
The NSX Type S is coming in with an all-new look and reimagined engine. Acura has added new compressors, injectors, and enhanced intercoolers to the Type S’s 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6. This gives the car an impressive 600 horsepower. The new NSX model is a hybrid, and the electric front motor’s gear ratios were adjusted to give the car better acceleration and torque.
The torque measures in at 492 lb-ft. With increased downforce and Pirelli P-Zero tires for grip, the NSX has some promising cornering potential. The new models will also be extremely aerodynamic, making the second-gen NSX an exciting high-speed option for any car lover. The Type S is expected to hit 60 mph in less than three seconds.
Acura gave hints about the next-generation NSX model
Acura Vice President Jon Ikeda said there’s a reason the second-generation vehicle in the NSX series had a hybrid engine instead of gas. This has sparked rumors that the third-generation NSX could be fully electric. This wouldn’t be that surprising considering the world of cars continues to head in that direction.
However, the potentially electric NSX won’t be available anytime soon. In the meantime, Acura plans to start production on the 2022 NSX Type S by the end of this year.
