Honda Acura NSX

Graphic News

October 26, 2017 -- Honda’s Acura NSX combines internal combustion and electric thrust for blistering off-the-line starts, a top speed of over 300km/h and a choice of drive modes, from Quiet to Sport, Sport-Plus and Track.

Conceived in the mid-1980s, Honda’s original “New Sportscar eXperimental” — inspired by the F-16 fighter jet — went on sale from 1990 to 2005.

A successor planned for 2010, powered by a V10 engine, was abandoned during the same economic downturn that resulted in Honda quitting F1.

The job finally fell to a small team in Honda’s U.S. division in Marysville, Ohio, bolstered by original NSX engineers from Japan.

From a 2012 prototype, powered by a transverse-mounted normally aspirated powertrain, came a decision to create an all-new longitudinally mounted, twin-turbocharged V-6 engine. The V6 is mated to an electric motor and nine-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox to drive the rear wheels, while two e-motors power the front wheels. (Story: Neil Winton)

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
