After a stupendous success of the Acura NSR, its upgraded version 2017 Acura NSX Type-R is soon to be launched anytime between 2016 – 17. Speculations are rife about obvious changes it is set to get in terms of look. It is also likely to shed the tag of not being in an “everyday car” in its segment. NSX models have also earned a dubious reputation of picking silver to any other color though the model of late has been available in the color red as well. The company also aims to build the car as one that can be customized by the customers.

With two flip-up roof flaps made of carbon fibre, the design of the car is sure to leave everyone stunned. Known as CRZ body, it is built entirely with carbon fibre.

It is hardly going to get any praises for its style as the priority has been completely on comfort and not style. The 2017 Acura NSX Type-R will not have any carpet and carbon fibre has been used for the seats. The carbon fibre seat is added keeping in mind the driver’s comfort.
