Spy Shots: The production 2016 Acura NSX gets spotted in the wild

At this point, the new Acura NSX seems like old news–and it hasn’t even reached production yet.

But after years–yes, years–of teasing, Acura finally revealed the near-production ready version of the NSX at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year. In what could be the slowest roll-out ever, spy photographers seem to have caught the full-production model running about in public. Yes, spy photographers catching the Acura NSX in the wild on public roads is still a topic of news discussion.

As a refresher, the NSX comes with the automaker’s first-ever twin-turbocharged V6 mated to an electric motor for a full gas-electric hybrid setup, for a combined output of around 500hp.

Helping to channel the power to all four wheels via Super Handling All-Wheel Drive is a nine-speed dual-clutch automatic.

The NSX is expected to finally hit showrooms later this year with production taking place at Honda’s key plant in Marysville, Ohio.
