the Acura NSX is dead and gone after this year. For 2022, the only NSX available is the NSX type S – a noisy 600 horsepower farewell to the Japanese super sports car. And it was gone in no time. Acura confirmed that the supercar is sold out in the United States. Motor1 first reported the news last Friday.

“We saw tremendous interest in the 2022 NSX Type S after its debut at Monterey Car Week,” said an Acura spokesman. “At this point, confirmed orders have far exceeded the 300-unit allocation for the US market.” Now anyone who raises their hand will write their name on the back of a napkin while hoping for their own NSX Type S. Me kid, he’s put on an official waiting list, but those situations are usually Don’t See a hundred people slip onto the assignment list, or that many. There are another 50 of these cars on sale in the rest of the world.

As I said, there will be no “regular” NSX for 2022. Instead, Acura was the last Type S to go all-in with the Type S. The car was first sold in 2016 as the highly anticipated successor to the original Underdog supercar. While the standard NSX produced 573 horsepower and 476 pound-feet of torque, engineers at Honda and Acura turned things up for the Type S. The 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 still runs on three electric motors but puts out 600 horsepower and 492 lb-ft. A nine-speed dual-clutch transmission also returns, but Acura has of course retuned it for faster shifts. We don’t have final specs for the car yet, but Acura said last month that this NSX Type S will lap the Suzuka circuit in Japan two seconds faster than the standard car.

The only good news is that the Type S badge is far from dead. In fact, it is expanding. The brand treated us with a new one TLX type S and a MDX type S. Acura will also do the. revive integration next year, and it’s a wise bet that the Type S badge will find its way there too.

The 2022 Acura NSX Type S is a real supercar completion
