POWER AND PRECISION IN BALANCE

The Type S is the most powerful and capable it’s ever been. A 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 that pumps out a potent 355-HP* through the exclusive quad-round exhaust outlets for a new league of performance. 354 lb-ft* of torque transfers to the pavement by the rear-biased Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ * (SH-AWD®). A sport-tuned Adaptive Damper System and high-performance chassis bracing means all that power can be driven with radical precision.

MASTER THE APEX

The Type S is born to amp your adrenaline levels. Large Brembo® front brake calipers paired with upsized rotors help you shed speed. NSX-inspired lightweight Y-spoke wheels wrapped in high-performance Pirelli summer tires reduce unsprung weight at all four corners, for a drive that feels precision-crafted down to the ounce.
