The worlds of tech and automobiles are becoming more and more entwined as the years go by. As developments are made in the tech world; they soon reach the market for car buyers. And, this trend is only getting bigger. With cars that run completely on electricity to vehicles that can drive themselves; huge steps have been made to make life on the road better. But, this post isn’t long enough to talk about everything. So, instead, it’s going to focus on one car; the Honda NSX. This hybrid supercar sits at the tippity-top of the tech-car coalition. So, let’s take a look at what makes this beast purr.

To start, you can’t look at a car like this without having a peak under the hood. The car boasts a 3.5L V6 engine, locking down 573 bhp. Though, the car is quite heavy, it can still hit sixty in an impressive 3 seconds. And, this is just the start. Along with its conventional engine, the NSX is also home to a hybrid setup. This technology allows the car to be partially powered by electric motors which run from the engine. All in all, this makes for a much more efficient car; breaking the fuel-guzzling trend found in most supercars. At the heart of the car, you find a dual-transmission 9-speed gearbox, to allow for seamless gear changes and loads of room for fun. And, of course, it wouldn’t be a supercar without twin-turbochargers sucking even more out of the behemoth of an engine in this car.

Now, it’s time to look at the surface of this car a little more. Cars like this are designed to be beautiful. And, this is something the NSX has achieved masterfully. From its sleek, shark-like front end, to its broad and almost Corvette-inspired rear; this motor is sure to be a head-turner. And, it doesn’t just stop at the outside of the car. Once you get inside, you’re welcomed by Honda’s finest interior design. With a well-integrated multimedia center, the car will always be able to provide for your entertainment needs. And, it has one of the sleekest center consoles out there. All in all, this car will meet the style needs of most drivers.

Of course, owning a car like this will never come cheap. The work that goes into designing, testing, and manufacturing one of these vehicles is incredible. And, this is reflected in the NSX’s one and a half hundred thousand price tag. This is ignoring the maintenance costs for the car, too. You will always have to take it to Honda mechanics; otherwise, the engineers you choose might struggle. But, you will likely get a warranty if you buy an NSX brand new. So, this could be covered for you. Either way, you’ll need to look after this car as best you can.

This isn’t likely to convince you to go out and spend the equivalent of a family home on a car. But, it should give you a good idea of how the tech and motoring worlds are meeting in the middle to create better roads for everyone.
