About the Acura NSX Type S

This is it: the final Acura NSX, the 2022 Acura NSX Type S. Taking the on-track lessons learned from the NSX racing program, the NSX Type S is the most powerful variation of this supercar ever. Adhering to the Acura principle of Precision Crafted Performance, the revolutionary NSX embodies a true vision of an iconic, exotic sports car. A bespoke manufacturing process featuring several world-first technologies helps the Acura NSX set the benchmark for performance and track-inspired exhilaration. Meticulously crafted for performance, the sleek body of the NSX features functional air intakes and competition-inspired styling for superior aerodynamics and improved air cooling. Lightweight materials such as carbon fiber further reduce weight and add additional style to the already eye-catching exterior. With equal attention paid to driver ergonomics and comfort, the premium interior of the Acura NSX includes a minimalist design that emphasizes freedom of movement. Groundbreaking technology and driver-assistive innovations help the NSX provide you with an unforgettable driving experience fitting for such an iconic sports car. The swan song of the NSX will be limited to just 350 units worldwide, so act fast.


What the Critics Say

To celebrate its final year of production, Acura has decided to release the 2022 Acura NSX Type S. The upgraded, enhanced, and improved Type S elevates an already impressive supercar to even more stratospheric levels — there’s a very good argument that the gasoline-electric hybrid NSX is the most technically sophisticated vehicle in showrooms today.” – Forbes

A twin-turbo V-6 and three electric motors team up for blistering acceleration but the system also enables quiet, electric-only driving so your neighbors don’t have a cow every time you idle through your subdivision.” – Car and Driver


What’s New for 2022

2022 will be the final model year for the Acura NSX. An extraordinary car such as this deserves an extraordinary sendoff, and the only version of the 2022 NSX that will be sold is the ultra limited, ultra high performance NSX Type S. It features engine technology and aerodynamics derived from the GT3-class NSX race cars, as well as numerous other race-inspired tweaks that are outlined below. Just 350 will be built, and only 300 of those will be for the United States market. Acura truly saved the best for last.

Performance & Styling

Just like the first-generation models, the Acura NSX remains a true driver’s car with an inspired combination of linear acceleration, powerful braking power, and razor-sharp handling. The NSX Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (Sport Hybrid SH-AWD) power unit electrifies all phases of driving. Its twin-turbocharged V6 engine creates powerful thrust, while a trio of electric motors push the performance envelope even further. A 9-speed DCT helps maximize the immense power band of the NSX. Four selectable drive modes allow you to tailor your ride to match your preferences.

Echoing the design philosophy of the original NSX, 2022 models are engineered to deliver a low center of gravity and a perfected weight distribution. The body structure is made up of space frame construction with high-rigidity aluminum and steel stampings which reduce weight. Additionally, a race-inspired carbon fiber body kit gives the NSX a high-performance look while improving the already excellent aerodynamics. Optional high-performance carbon ceramic brakes, functional air vents, and expressive exterior color options such as the available limited edition Gotham Gray Matte nano-technology premium paint help make the Acura NSX an instantly-recognizable icon.

Acura NSX Type S Interior

Driver-Oriented Cabin

Enhanced visibility, comfortable support for the driver, and usable ergonomics help make the interior of the Acura NSX the perfect command center for an inspired drive. Both structurally rigid and lightweight, the semi-aniline leather and Alcantara®-trimmed NSX Sport Seats deliver greater comfort and support than those found in other supercars. The competition-inspired flat-bottom steering wheel features carbon fiber trim. Included as standard, the ELS Studio Premium Audio System gives you a total of 9 speakers with 580-watts of power. A standard Electronic Gear Selector allows the driver to choose a gear with a simple press of a button. Special badging throughout signifies that the 2022 NSX Type S is the final NSX.
