The 2017 Acura NSX boasts the cutting-edge features and under-the-hood performance that Orland Park, Tinley Park, and Naperville drivers demand. As a top-tier luxury vehicle at the head of its segment, it’s no surprise that the new NSX earned rave reviews on its recent appearance on Jay Leno’s web series about his favorite vehicles, Jay Leno’s Garage. Read on to learn what he had to say, then stop by Joe Rizza Acura to learn how and when you can get behind the wheel of this jaw-dropping super car.

Jay’s Drive with the 2017 Acura NSX

To get the inside scoop on the latest NSX model, Leno teams up with Acura’s lead designer, Michelle Christensen, and Acura’s global development chief engineer, Ted Klaus. They key him into the nuances of the design process of what Leno calls “the first real exotic car that you could use anywhere for any reason,” such as its new longitudinal engine and restructured chassis. Leno was largely impressed by how the 2017 NSX innovates its design for improved drag and airflow while still retaining features like the rear haunches and sculpted fascia that set the signature supercar apart. While driving it, Jay mentions that he’s very impressed by the NSX’s model-unique engine, as well as its smooth manual shifting and immersive power. “All right,” Leno chuckles at the end of the ride, “I gotta get one of these.”
