What's New for the 2022 Acura NSX Type S?

The NSX is Acura's legendary mid-engine sports car, and it is ending the production of the second generation with an all-new Type S configuration. The Type S is a handbuilt variant of the NSX that will feature tons of track-oriented upgrades and be limited to only 350 units globally.

2022 NSX Type S Trims & Features

One of the most noticeable changes to the NSX Type S is the styling. The Type S is much more aggressive than the previous NSX and embodies the exotic nature of the vehicle. The front bumper is completely redesigned to be more angular, and it features larger air intakes. The rear bumper and diffuser were redesigned, and they draw inspiration from the NSX GT3 Evo. The carbon fiber rear diffuser helps keep the Type S under control when you push it to the limit around the track. Overall, the NSX Type S features a ton of aerodynamic upgrades that help it be a better track vehicle and make the car look more exotic.

2022 Acura NSX Type S Horsepower

The Type S has gotten a modest bump in power compared to the previous NSX. The hybrid powertrain now produces an even 600 hp and 492 lb-ft of torque. This increase in power now makes the NSX Type S the most powerful and quickest vehicle Acura has ever produced. The nine-speed dual-clutch transmission has been recalibrated to shift 50-percent quicker when using the paddles, providing an even more visceral driving experience. You can now hold downshift, and the Type S will automatically select the lowest gear possible, which is optimal for overtaking people on the track or the highway.

Acura NSX Type S Safety

As far as safety goes, the NSX Type S has all the features you would expect to find in a mid-engine exotic sports car. The NSX Type S comes with Super Handling AWD as standard, which helps to increase performance and stability in inclement weather. If you do get into an accident in the NSX Type S, the multi-material space frame chassis will help to keep you safe. Combining this with all of the airbags found in the NSX adds up to a reasonably safe sportscar.
