The Acura NSX Sets Pikes Peak Record for Hybrid Production Cars

Acura has been in peak form at the 2020 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. The Japanese automaker showed up at Race to the Clouds with a 2019 NSX and a pair of race-spec 2021 TLX sedans to make a statement in a highly competitive field. Consider that mission accomplished as the NSX, with driver James Robinson behind the wheel, set a new record for production hybrid models with a time of 10:01.913. The new record is 0.5 seconds quicker than the old record, which Robinson also set in 2018 with a 2017 NSX. The pair of 2021 TLX sedans also performed well, finishing fifth and sixth in the Exhibition class with drivers Jordan Guitar and Justin Lombard piloting the race-prepped sedans.
