Super Bowl 50: Acura NSX – What He Said: Video
Previews of Super Bowl commercials from manufacturers are flying onto YouTube faster than ever. Here we have two commercials from Acura for your viewing pleasure. One is 30 seconds long, and the other is 60 seconds. The best part is that at the heart of both commercials is the companies soon-to-be-released supercar, the Acura NSX.
I’ve always thought of the NSX as more of a “she,” with those beautiful lines and loving soul, but it looks like the new NSX is slated to be a “he,” as Acura’s slogan for the NSX in these two commercials is “what he said.” Undoubtedly, Acura is speaking of that roar from the NSX’s 3.5-liter, twin-turbo, V-6 engine. That engine is said to put out 500 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque, and – in combination with the electric drivetrain – can put out a maximum of 573 horsepower and hit an approximate top speed of 191 mph.
Power and good looks aside, Acura is planning to let us start building our own starting on February 25, 2016. That in itself is more than enough to be excited for. Even if you don’t have the cheddar to buy one yourself, the NSX is bound to become one of the most lusted for vehicles out there, so quit wasting time and feed your desire by watching the two short videos. Fair warning: use headphones if you’re in a public place, and turn up the sound. You’ll want to absorb as much of that soul-rattling roar of the NSX as you can.
