NSX Type R rumors come and go, but a more credible source, forbes.com, has stated the anticipated model will finally debut at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show in October.
Here’s what Forbes’ Peter Lyon is reporting:
“Modifications for the Type R include a power boost to 650 hp, stiffer uprated suspension and stabilizers and bigger carbon-ceramic brakes while the coupe will be fitted with aeroparts like a rear wing and front splitter inspired by Honda’s NSX-GT race car which competes in Japan’s Super GT championships. What is still not clear however, is whether the Type R will retain the NSX’s controversial SH-AWD system.” – Peter Lyon, Forbes
If true, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Acura version debuted at an earlier date in North America.
