Acura has reincarnated its mid-engined supercar, updated with edgy styling and a hybrid powertrain. Its heart is a 75-degree, twin-turbo V6 and nine-speed dual-clutch transmission, teamed with three electric motors. One sits between the engine and rear drive wheels, to boost acceleration and braking. The other two are positioned at each front wheel, to provide all-wheel drive and quicker throttle response with improved torque distribution. Total output is 573 horsepower. Four driving modes range from Quiet to Track, to suit the driver's preferences. Compared against the original NSX, this new model is about two inches longer and five inches wider. Pricing starts from $156,000.

It is stunningly fast, yet remains surprisingly easy and civilized to drive for such a high-performance exotic.

1996-2005
Acura NSX 2005
Cast in the vein of classic mid-engine Ferraris, the aluminum-bodied NSX is a true exotic sports car that just happens to start every morning. Although introduced way back in 1991, the car remains a watermark for being agile and fun to drive. Gurgling behind your ears, the V6 revs eagerly, and the shifter is a joy to use. You can get an automatic, but that detracts from the joy of driving this car. Handling is ultra responsive and invigorating, but at its cornering limits, the tail can slide with little warning. Exotics like this are usually hard to live with, but the NSX is as accommodating as a two-seat Honda Accord. Year after year of little change took their toll on sales, and 2005 was the last year for the original NSX.
