June 22nd, 2016 by

2017 nsxComing soon for all drivers in the Naperville, Elmhurst, and Chicago area, the 2017 Acura NSX is one of the year’s most anticipated releases. In fact, comedians Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno were speculating about who would get a chance to drive the NSX five whole years ago. Well, Jay Leno recently got the opportunity, and he documented his experience on Jay Leno’s Garage. Find out more here – and check out our other Acura models while you wait for the release of the 2017 NSX!

What did Jay Think?

Jay Leno, a noted car fanatic, begins the episode with a huge smile on his face. “Oh yeah,” he says as the 2017 Acura NSX roars, “It feels really nice. It’s really good. It’s really quite good.” Praising the body design of the NSX, particularly the rear haunches with exposed ventilation, Leno makes it clear that he loves the look of the NSX.

Obviously a man of good taste, Leno pours over the body, and he lovingly compliments the gloriously appointed interior. But what Leno really loves about the NSX is all under the hood. Chief engineer Ted Klaus takes a ride with Leno, and as Klaus explains the unique nature of the NSX, Leno praises the “bespoke” engine and transmission. Their enjoyment is contagious as the NSX zooms along the road.

That’s not a surprise though. With its mid-mounted twin-turbo 3.5L V6 engine, the NSX delivers a pulse-pounding 573 hp. Its rigid body and unique transmission make full use of that power, and it has the nuance necessary to really handle it. What’s more, the 2017 NSX comes with a beautifully designed interior, and it offers the latest and greatest in technological and handcrafted features – all things to make even the most seasoned enthusiast like Leno giddy!
