Lexus LFA and Acura NSX supercars at the NY Auto Show
The Lexus LFA and Acura NSX supercars made it to the New York Auto Show this year.
The rear-wheel drive LFA has a 4.8-liter V10 engine pushing 553 ponies and 354 lb-ft of torque with a top speed of 202 mph. All this performance will cost you nearly $400,000.
Acura's reincarnation of the NSX will reportedly have a hybrid system. A a 3.5-liter V-6 engine will power the rear wheels, and an electric motor will power the two front wheels. This combined powertrain system will give the Acura NSX a total of just over 400 horsepower.
Acura hasn't announced an official release date or pricing, but a spokesman for the company at the New York Auto Show says we should expect the vehicle "within the next couple of years" and a price tag near $100,000.
