Second-Generation NSX “Dream Project” Debuts at SEMA 2017
ScienceofSpeed works its magic with the Japanese supercar, and makes us think this is what the NSX should look like straight from the factory!
The stunning second generation Acura NSX “Dream Project” created by Honda and Acura specialist, ScienceofSpeed, is debuting during this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show. We don’t know about you, but we think it looks the absolute business.
The Arizona-based tuning house began by enhancing the heart of the iconic machine. It developed high-performance downpipes and a light-weight stainless steel exhaust system that’d allow the supercar to breath better, as well as express itself a little clearer and louder – if you know what we mean. All in all, ScienceofSpeed shaved-off about 16 pounds with its modifications.
In the performance department, liquid injected intercooling further elevates engine performance by cooling intake air before it enters the twin-turbochargers, improving output to a combined 610 horsepower and 507 lb.-ft. torque. That’s 37 horsepower and 31 lb.-ft. pounds of torque more than a stock unit.
“ScienceofSpeed is thrilled to present our expression of the second generation vehicle unlimited and unrestricted,” said Chris Willson, general manager of ScienceofSpeed. “Devoted fans share in a rich 27-year history, and with the second generation car reaching the aftermarket community, now is an extraordinary time to be an enthusiast. We are thrilled to share our passion for this iconic platform.”
Driving the looks department, ScienceofSpeed installed a GT3-inspired aero kit to increase downforce and drastically improve styling. Aggressive front strakes, wider carbon fiber ducted rocker panels, a mid-height rear wing and larger rear diffuser to improve downforce while retaining factory design elements. Meanwhile, the Carbon Ceramic Brembo brakes stand out with a gold flake finish – again, in homage to the first-generation NSX which featured a black roof with a Nouvelle Blue Pearl body.
The interior department is amped-up with black leather Recaro Pole Position racing seats with blue stitching. Accents can also be found on the doors, dash and seats. The blue fabric features a hexagonal pattern referencing the supercar’s iconic honeycomb grille. Lastly, a gaugeART OLED multi-function display mounted high on the dash provides the driver with key vehicle performance data.
All in all, the ScienceofSpeed’s “Dream Project” looks like a passionate and exquisite build – bravo!
