2020 ACURA NSX NOW IN A SPA YELLOW

Acura’s NSX gets a bold new color option for 2020. The color, Indy Yellow Pearl, pays homage to Spa Yellow, also known as Indy Yellow in some markets, one of two yellows offered on the first-generation NSX.

Yellow was a surprisingly popular choice for first-generation NSX buyers: About 20 percent of all NSXs built between 1997 and 2003 were painted Spa Yellow. The new Indy Yellow Pearl joins Berlina Black as one of two heritage colors offered on the 2020 NSX.

No changes have been made to the NSX’s powertrain for 2020, though rumors of a hotter version coming down the line persist. For now, NSX buyers will have to settle for a hybrid powertrain combining a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 with three electric motors for a total 573 horsepower and 476 pound-feet of torque.

Two of those electric motors add traction at the front wheels while the engine, mated to a 9-speed dual-clutch transmission and the third electric motor, drives the rear wheels. The 0-60 mph time will take you around 3.0 seconds or less and the top speed is estimated at 191 mph. Since the car’s battery is only a small 1.3-kilowatt-hour unit, there isn’t an electric mode.
