Skidpad Results

Its supercar status, the NSX Type S could only manage 1.01 g on the skidpad, beaten by the more affordable TLX Type S.


The Corvette Z51 (1.09 g) and Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica (1.06 g) outgripped the NSX, highlighting its underwhelming cornering performance for a supercar.


The NSX's complex AWD system and engineering compromises may have contributed to its uninspiring skidpad performance, prioritizing stability over outright grip.


The TLX Type S showcases Acura's handling chops, proving that impressive cornering grip doesn't require a supercar pedigree or price tag.


While the NSX underperformed expectations, the TLX Type S delivers supercar-rivaling grip at a fraction of the cost, a true performance bargain.
