A four-motor, all-electric Acura NSX is racing at this year's Pikes Peak Hill Climb.
The unique powertrain is an evolution of that found in the Honda CR-Z that competed in Pikes Peak last year.
Honda’s four-motor system, dubbed SH-AWD, is capable of pushing torque to every corner independent from one another.
Torque vectoring is used in the road-legal version of the NSX, as well, through two electric motors up front and a limited-slip differential in the back.
By ditching the combustion engine and going with four electric motors, Acura says the car gets even more precise torque vectoring.
There hasn’t been much said about the changes to the torque allocation system from last year, but it has been updated to provide “more precise thrust at each wheel.”
How many hundredths of a second that might be worth is unknown to us, but the powertrain won its class when used in the CR-Z last year, so it couldn’t have been too imprecise before.
