Acura is Honda’s luxury vehicle marque. These vehicles are usually designed to be the best with excellent interior materials and exterior styling. Acura has widened its scope over the years to cover a wider customer base. One of the most notable features of Acura vehicles is the speed. Acura cars are known to reach quite high speeds. Here is list of the top 5 fastest Acura cars.
The NSX is known to be the fastest Acura car. The first generation, produced between 1990 and 2005, could reach top speeds of 190mph with the second generation reintroduced for the 2015 model year reaching a top speed of 191 mph. The first generation had an all-aluminum V6 engine, which produced 224 pound-feet worth of torque and 290 horsepower. The second generation incorporated an all-drive drivetrain into these specifications. The new Acura NSX has weight-saving construction. It has a powertrain made up of three electric motors as well as a twin-turbo V6 engine. This combination results in an output of 573 horsepower. An all-wheel drive and a nine-speed dual-clutch automatic are standard.
The Acura CL comes second on the list of Acura’s fastest cars. This midsize coupe was also manufactured in two generations. Acura CL’s top speeds reached 153 mph. The second generation of this Acura model was fitted with a 3.2 liter V6 engine. The transmission was either a 6-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic. The 6-speed transmission model lacked a few of the interior features as compared to the automatic such as the center console light. There was also only one heat setting for the heated seated as opposed to the automatic’s high and low settings. The standard version of the Acura CL put out 225 horsepower but there was a Type S variant that put out 260.
While its production ended in 2014, this mid-size luxury vehicle was equally fast. With a 150 mph top speed, the car gets from ‘0-60’ in just 6.9 seconds. It has a 3.6 liter V6 engine that puts out 280 horsepower. Fine-tuned steering and suspension systems enhance this car’s driving experience at such top speeds. The Acura TL was replaced with the Acura TLX.
Acura RSX Type- S
This is the final generation of the Honda Integra. It is a sporty luxury car that reaches ‘0-60’ in 6.7 seconds. This variant is the speediest of the model and has a top speed of 140 mph. It has a 16-valve, 2-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 200 horsepower. The interior accommodation of this car were improved greatly compared to previous models without increasing its footprint area.
This was one of most well-known models of Acura. Its production ended in the 2000s to allow for the production of its RSX successor, but the car tops the fifth on the list of Acura’s fastest cars. Acura Integra has a top speed of 140 and gets from ‘0-60’ in 8 seconds. It has a 2 liter inline four engine that produces 200 horsepower.
There are other Acura vehicles with equally top speeds but this sums up the top five. The ability of these vehicles to reach such top speeds doesn’t compromise their drivability. The cars are also fitted with distinct safety features.
