Acura just exploded at the 2018 North American Auto Show on Monday morning when they
announced that the company will restart the legendary Type S !
Acura is setting the scene for the arrival of sporty models. The last sports car from the Acura's Type S - the equivellent to the Honda's Type R has not been seen for more than 10 years.
It's all part of the BIG PLAN
By returning back to form - Acura will try to boost it's reputation and sales numbers.
The CEO of the American Honda Motor Co. said :
“Acura will pursue a unique powertrain strategy that underscores the brand's rightful place as the performance division of Honda”
So what's all the fuzz about ?
We are happy to inform you that the strategy invlolves a confirmed V-6 engine that will be helped by a turbo charger bringing the total power output to about 500hp. Sadly Honda didn't say anything about making the new NSX better.
For better or worse torque steer will be a thing of the past as Acura will implement Honda's high end All-Wheel Drive also improving the handling - first debuting in the oncoming 2019 RDX. The Type S package will also include new suspension, brakes and other visual ques.
In conclusion 2018 appears to be very interesting for the car scene, finally a legend is returning to the podium and we hope that Acura will trigger a chain reaction!
