When Honda lifted the curtains off its new sports car concept; a few eyebrows were raised in astonishment. It had been 25 years since the first release of Honda’s Acura NSX line up, and this is the first time it is receiving such up-gradations. So, without much delay, it is time to welcome a sports car looking to rejuvenate its lost glory – the 2018 Acura NSX Type R.
Let’s Check the 2018 Acura NSX Type R: Inside and Out
Take a look at the car – its Fast. The designing speaks for its purpose which makes this car look a class apart. The headlights, for instance, are sharp, streamlined and reflects a challenging outlook to its admirers. It comprises 4 pairs of square-shaped LED lamps that incorporate turning lights at each end.
An array of daytime running makes its presence felt in the crowd which transits smoothly towards its pointed nose. A couple of air intakes come with a mesh grille design that is brackets a sleekly designed front bumper.
Going towards the rear of this vehicle takes you to triangular shaped LED tail lamps and a fender as well. Wheels are completely carbon ceramic, 20 inches in size and mates to all weather tires.
Every inch of the interiors personifies the term “sporty” in every manner. The 2018 Acura NSX Type R will opt for complete Nappa Leather upholstery that will follow the theme of scarlet. Some exquisite hand stitching adds that extra bit of detail to its interiors that extend from the seats to the dash.
On the console, the 2018 NSX Type R goes all techy. It adorns an 8-inch diagonal touch screen that becomes responsible for a total in-house control. This time Honda is looking to incorporate climate control as well as a provision for a heated steering wheel as well as seats.
However, the company looks to eliminate any traces of speakers, or even a stereo as those are likely to contribute an unwanted amount to the total body weight.
Speaking of protection:
Appropriate for the race tracks, Acura NSX Type R 2018 looks to step up its security features with a roll cage. Complementing it with 8-way airbags for the driver as well as co-passenger, it comes with traction control, Low Tire Pressure Monitoring System and ABS.

Add to this the three Dynamic drive modes of Honda – Sport, Sport+ and Track. You are good to receive power variable as per needs. A chance of a hybrid powertrain is also on the cards. But it is yet to receive any confirmations.
