Performance Car of the Year

Road & Track is one of the most reputable names in the automotive industry, and they are staffed by a group of automotive experts who absolutely adore cars. Their Car of the Year awards are widely respected, and it is a great honor to receive one. This year, nine vehicles competed for the title:

  • Audi R8 V10 Plus
  • BMW M4 GTS
  • Corvette Grand Sport
  • Jaguar F-Type SVR
  • Lotus Evora 400
  • Mercedes-AMG C63 S
  • Nissan GT-R NISMO
  • Porsche 911 Turbo S

And then, of course, there was the Acura NSX, which bested these competitors. This was an upset win against these legendary titans of the supercar class, and, according to Road & Track, “for the first time in a hybrid automobile of any price or capability, technology has been placed firmly in the service emotional investment rather than in place of it.” The choice was made over the course of four days, and each car was tested for its power, handling, and performance.

Why the NSX Won

Road & Track ultimately chose the NSX because of its unique driving experience, where every element of the vehicle has been oriented towards enhancing the quality of the experience for the driver. This includes its body, its interior design, its braking system, and its unique engine setup. With 573 hp and a potent Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™, the NSX is unstoppable and guaranteed to give Tinley Park drivers the ride of a lifetime.
