Ted Klaus Talks New Acura NSX Development! Plus Ferrari & GT-R Rivals - Wide Open Throttle Ep. 66

By Motor Trend Channel

Special guest Ted Klaus, Global Development Chief at Acura, sits down with Angus MacKenzie, Carlos Lago, Ron Kiino and Jonathan Wong to talk about the new Acura NSX and the development process behind creating Acura's new Halo Car. The NSX will utilize a form of the new hybrid Super Handling-AWD (SH-AWD) system. The V-6, likely a 3.5- or 3.7-liter, will drive the rear wheels by means of a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Unlike the current SH-AWD system, which would send power to the front wheels by way of a driveshaft and a mechanical differential, the NSX's front wheels will instead be powered by a pair of electric motors. As each motor is assigned to a wheel, the system has the ability to accelerate the outer wheel in a corner, creating a yaw moment that improves the car's ability to turn in and rotate. Wide Open Throttle appears every Thursday on the Motor Trend channel. Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! Facebook - Twitter - Google+ - Website -
