Introduced in 2012, it looks like the Acura NSX will finally switch from being a prototype to a ready-to-buy vehicle in 2017. Featuring a turbocharged V6 engine, an electric engine for each front wheel, and a starting price of $150,000, the Acura NSX is without a shadow of a doubt one of the most awaited cars of the decade. The super car is highly technical, and to many enthusiasts it is quite thrilling. We love the design – it’s sleek, ingenious, and incredibly appealing. The pulse-pounding performance is paired with every day usability for a smooth driving experience. The automatic 9-speed dual clutch, side impact beams, and driver knee airbags are just some of its pioneering built-in features.
At this point, the Apple Car is just a rumor. But what if it hit the streets in 2017 if the rumors are true? Everything will change. The self-driving vehicle will shake up the auto industry completely, not to mention that Google will probably have the biggest surprise. The Silicon Valley tech company has been interested in what autonomous cars can do for several years now, and they certainly don’t like that Google’s driverless car gets all the attention. If the Apple Car becomes real, it will probably be the most advanced tech car on the market. In all honestly, we doubt that Apple will come up with a vehicle until it is 100% sure that it’s something ground-breaking.
