Welcome to the 2017 Acura NSX.

It's a car designed to be as home on the track as on the road.

But, we started on the track, of course.

It's powered by a 500-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6.

That V-6 has twin turbos, but it also has a lot more help.

Three electric motors augment the experience, meaning yes, this is a hybrid -- a 573-horsepower hybrid.

This gives it plenty of acceleration down the straights.

And the (optional) carbon ceramic brakes perform incredibly well on the track.

Red will likely be the most common color, but there are more to choose from...

In fact, there are four separate shades of white/silver to choose from.

The car is long and low.

The distinctive styling is reminiscent of the current Accord and Honda's Clarity fuel cell concept.

But the NSX certainly is its own car.

Despite the angular shape, the car is very aerodynamic, developing downforce at speed.

Carbon ceramic brakes and big, 20-inch wheels up front.

Wide and low, as supercars should be.

A small lip spoiler is optional, made of carbon fiber, of course.

Vents in the hood provide a place for the radiator air to go, also generating downforce.

Flying buttresses. So necessary.

The rear of the car contains plenty more aerodynamic vents.

The quad-tip exhaust is remarkably small.

There's the V-6, under there somewhere.

Carbon fiber roof is an option.

Infotainment system is straight out of a Civic or HR-V. Android Auto and CarPlay are here.

Simple steering wheel with just enough controls and a fat, sporty shape.

Seats, too, are plush yet supportive.

Regardless of hue: it's a great ride.
