2005 Acura NSX - АвтоГурман

Honda NSX — спортивный автомобиль со среднемоторной компоновкой, производимый компанией Honda с 1990 по 2005 гг.

В Северной Америке иГонконге продавался под маркой Acura. При проектировании было использовано множество новаторских решений: это первый автомобиль, кузов и шассикоторого изготовлены из алюминия, оснащался полностью электронным усилителем руля, электронной педалью газа (так называемый Drive-by-Wire), двигатель имел V-образное расположение цилиндров, максимальное количество оборотов 8000 в минуту, шатуны изготовлены из титана, комплектовалсяплатиновыми свечами зажигания. Для лучшей аэродинамики днище автомобиля было плоским, а форма задней части кузова помогала максимально снизить силу отрыва колес от поверхности на высоких скоростях.

РАЗРАБОТКА

По словам бывшего руководителя департамента развития Нобухико Кавамото, старт проекта спортивного автомобиля Honda был дан 1986 г.

Так как при проектировании NSX инженеры смогли добиться развесовки 50:50 между правым и левым бортом, автомобиль смог добиться отличных результатов в кольцевых гонках (24 часа Ле-Мана, Super GT500). В разработке участвовал гонщик Айртон Сенна

ПЕРВОЕ ПОКОЛЕНИЕ NSX-R

Электрические кожаные сиденья были заменены на лёгкие гоночные сидения из карбонового волокна, изготовленные Recaro для Honda. Тем не менее, электрические продольная регулировка кресел и стеклоподъёмники были сохранены. Стандартные кованые колеса из сплава были заменены на более легкие, изготовленные Enkei, которые уменьшили неподрессоренные массы. Кожаный рычаг КПП заменили на цельнофрезерованный из титана.

К 1992 году было хорошо известно, что ввиду центральномоторной компоновки NSX имел тенденцию к внезапной избыточной поворачиваемости при определенных условиях маневрирования. В оживленном уличном движении на невысоких скоростях это редко проявлялось, но могло возникнуть на гоночных треках, где скорости значительно выше.

Для улучшения стабильности в поворотах на предельных режимах, Honda добавила алюминиевые скобы впереди под аккумулятором и перед передним радиатором, что увеличило жёсткость шасси. Также была заменена вся подвеска с более жестким передним стабилизатором поперечной устойчивости, жёсткими втулками подвески и жёсткими пружинами и амортизаторами.

У стандартной NSX задние пружины жестче передних. При сильном замедлении на входе в поворот, более мягкие передние пружины позволяют перенести вес вперед, увеличивая сцепление передних колес и улучшая реакцию при рулении. Но в то же время вес отбирается у задних колес, приводя к уменьшению сцеплению. Как результат — тенденция к избыточной поворачиваемости.

Для снижения этого эффекта на NSX установили более мягкие задние покрышки, а для NSX-R Honda поменяла распределение жесткости пружин между передней и задней осью, установив более жесткие пружины и стабилизатор в передней подвеске.

Но жёсткость возросла на обеих осях по сравнению со стандартным NSX (21 мм — передний стабилизатор, что на 2.6 мм больше стандартного; жёсткость пружин NSX: перед — 3.0 кг/мм, зад — 4.0 кг/мм против NSX-R: перед — 8.0 кг/мм, зад — 5.7 кг/мм).

Также Honda увеличила передаточное отношение главной передачи до 4.235:1 вместо 4.06:1 в стандартном варианте, что сместило точки переключения передач в более высокий режим вращения коленвала, где выше мощность.

Это изменение уменьшило максимальную скорость в угоду лучшего ускорения. Кроме этого был установлен новый дифференциал ограниченного скольжения с более высоким процентом блокировки.

В 3.0-литровом двигателе для NSX-R установили отполированную и отбалансированную поршневую группу с коленвалом, которые были выполнены вручную теми же высококвалифицированными специалистами, которые готовят гоночные двигатели Honda.

Опционально на заводе устанавливались кондиционер, стереосистема BOSE, отделка центральной консоли и панелей дверей из карбона, а также начиная с 1994 г. бОльшие колёса (16″ впереди и 17″ сзади), окрашенные в цвет Championship White.

Производство данной модели закончилось в сентябре 1995.

NSX-T

В 1995 году NSX-T была представлена в Японии с крышей тарга как специальная опция.

В Северной Америке в марте 1995 года NSX-T полностью заменила стандартное купе как единственная доступная модель, за исключением версии Zanardi NSX 1999 года и нескольких спецзаказов между 1997 и 2002 годами. Съемная крыша снизила жесткость шасси и добавила около 45 кг для усиления структуры.

Вдобавок, все NSX-T имели стабилизаторы поперечной устойчивости меньшего диаметра, немного более жесткие передние пружины и более мягкие амортизаторы для улучшения комфорта и износа покрышек, одновременно улучшив проблему внезапных заносов, которая преследует большинство среднемоторных автомобилей.

Все крыши были окрашены в цвет кузова вместо чёрного, хотя в Японии черные крыши оставались в качестве опции. Теперь на версии с механической коробкой устанавливался электрический усилитель руля, который ранее устанавливали исключительно на версии с АКПП.

Honda NSX (Хонда НСХ), 3.2, , , 2005, отзывы владельца об автомобиле

Технические характеристики

Отзыв владельца

Купе NSX — автомобиль нетипичный (так и хочется сказать «атипичный»). Во-первых, это суперкар по всем формальным признакам: купе центральномоторной компоновки с расположенным поперечно за сиденьями двигателем V6, да еще и с алюминиевым кузовом. Honda NSX начала выпускаться за два года до алюминиевого седана Audi A8, в 1990-м. И выпускается до сих пор! Правда, очень малыми тиражами — 100 машин в год. Причем это ручная сборка: например, каждый двигатель NSX собирает один мастер от начала и до конца, как и положено при рождении истинного суперкара. И коллеги из журнала Автоспорт, которым удалось поездить на NSX, оценивали этот автомобиль очень высоко. Мощный и легкий, с лишенным гидроусилителя тугим и острым рулем...

Тяжелая дверь. Низкая посадка. Кокпит маленький: сидишь в объятиях ковшеобразного кресла в тесноте. Но не в обиде: за спиной взревела 280-сильная «шестерка». Однако, уже выруливая на трассу, я удивился — гидроусилитель на этом купе NSX был! Баранка, как и на S2000 и на Интегре, вращалась с подозрительной, обескураживающей легкостью. При этом острым рулевое управление я бы не назвал — здесь было явно около трех оборотов от упора до упора. Да и подвеска гоночной жесткостью не отличалась: в первом же вираже низкое купе заметно накренилось.

Может быть, это все оттого, что машины на полигоне — «праворульные», для японского рынка? Здесь, на Островах, где ездить быстрее 120 км/ч по дорогам запрещено и где это ограничение, в принципе, блюдут, как самурайский кодекс бусидо в старину, жесткость и острота не нужны. «Заряженные» машины в Японии любят — и в городах, и на узких загородных дорожках между деревнями постоянно попадаются тюнинговые автомобили с огромными жерлами прямоточных глушителей. Но никто никогда не хулиганит, никто не использует максимально разрешенные японскими законами 280 л.с. даже на четверть. Мощные машины здесь любят, так сказать, платонически.

Поэтому идеальный японский суперкар — это автомобиль потенциально быстрый, но «гражданский» по удобству вождения. И тогда в эту концепцию ложатся все три опробованные мною Хонды — и Integra Type-R, и обновленный родстер S2000, и даже NSX.

Но неужели даже самые «горячие» Хонды теперь все такие? Нет, не верю! Не хочу верить!

И тут на площадке перед трассой появилась еще одна Honda NSX — белая, с черной крышей и с низким, лаконичным задним антикрылом. Такие машины выпускаются вообще единицами и только в «праворульном» исполнении, они не идут на экспорт. Это Honda NSX-R — облегченная и форсированная версия NSX для клубных гонок. Причем это уже второе пришествие версии NSX-R — первая малая серия облегченных «гоночных» супер-Хонд выпускалась с 1992 по 1995 годы и принесла этому автомобилю громкую славу. Теперь NSX-R возвращается — очевидно, перед тем, как снять ветеранское суперкупе с производства, японцы решили освежить в памяти сограждан громкое имя...

Я с трудом дождался своей очереди. Опять же с трудом уселся в тесный кокпит и не без труда вырулил с пятачка на трассу: руль тяжеленный! Вот здесь гидроусилителя и впрямь нет. Зато есть кованые колеса BBS, очень «цепкие» шины Bridgestone Potenza RE070, сверхлегкий композитный капот из пластика, армированного углеволокном, — и аэродинамический обвес, который позволяет сменить знак подъемной силы с плюса на минус, то есть обеспечить хоть и небольшую, но прижимную силу. В трансмиссии — «укороченная» главная передача и самоблокирующийся дифференциал с иными настройками. И, конечно, двигатель после спецсборки — с тщательно отбалансированным коленвалом, с подобранными по весу поршнями и шатунами, с перенастроенной электроникой...

Какой звук! Он чище и «правильнее», чем у синего «обычного» NSX. Как легко и охотно раскручивается мотор, с какой живостью откликается на педаль! И впечатление от шасси совсем иное. Руль тяжел? Нет, он информативен — на длинной дуге чувствуешь баланс автомобиля спинным мозгом. Сцепных свойств шин хватит еще на сантиметр хода педали, еще на сотню оборотов, и не более, иначе — срыв. На грани! Плавный сброс газа, прогрессивное торможение — до срабатывания специально настроенной «спортивной» АБС... А вот теперь, в крутом медленном вираже, можно похулиганить, небрежно бросив NSX-R в занос. Эй, ты куда? Еле успел поймать машину — отвыкли руки от быстрой работы рулем без усилителя...

Я с огромным наслаждением откатал все три положенных круга, а потом «не заметил» отмашки японца-распорядителя — и срубил еще один кружочек. Вот это автомобиль!

Белая Honda NSX-R понравилась не одному мне, но прокатиться на ней посчастливилось не всем. Коллега из Словении шел по той длинной дуге очень быстро, на пределе, — и неаккуратно, слишком резко сбросил газ. Машину тут же сорвало в занос, закрутило — и впечатало боком в отбойник. Надо было видеть лица тех, кто был в очереди после незадачливого драйвера: все знали, что «настоящая» Honda на трассе была только одна...

Комментарии к фото:

1 и 2

Облегченная Honda NSX-R — настоящий, чистопородный образец дорожного спорткара. Ради снижения массы на NSX-R ставят маленькую батарею, более тонкие заднее стекло и внутрисалонные коврики, экономят на шумоизоляции... В салоне — спартанское рулевое колесо и металлический набалдашник шестиступенчатой коробки

3 и 4

«Обычная» Honda NSX на первый взгляд отличается только отсутствием заднего антикрыла. Но посмотрите на крен — в том же вираже он заметно больше: на ходу NSX и NSX-R отличаются, как небо и земля

5

Вот такой вот ключик гарантирует безопасность, правда в пределах Японского острова

6 и т.д.

Хонда - это просто песня...

    Идеальная в управлении машина. Honda NSX-R, 2005

    при перепечатке ссылка на источники текста и перевода обязательна!

    Он необычайно компактен.

    Не помню уже, когда и по какому случаю, но ко мне закралось подозрение, что управление автомобилем Honda NSX-R – удовольствие не для каждого. В самом деле, сидишь за рулем и постоянно стукаешься головой об потолок, тело застыло, как будто сжато тисками, - можно ли в таких условиях ждать, что езда будет восприниматься, как нечто легкое и приятное?!

    Представьте себе: раннее утро, на площадке перед нашей редакцией я и мой (на время) автомобиль NSX-R. Вы спросите, каково было мое первое впечатление? Отвечаю: как это ни странно прозвучит, но первым делом я подумал: «Ну, надо же! А машина-то невероятно компактная!». Вот ведь как все обернулось: в наш век, когда все, или почти все модели с каждым новым поколением наращивают габариты, этот автомобиль, который когда-то воспринимался довольно крупным по размеру, сейчас кажется, уступает даже машине Honda Civic. Но вот я опускаю, или лучше сказать, погружаю свое тело в глубокое ковшеобразное кресло от компании Recaro. Чувствую, как оно оказалось зажатым со всех сторон. Но это «сжатие» не воспринимается, как помеха, поскольку сидение пришлось мне в самую пору. Еще раз осматриваюсь. Нет, кажется, назвать машину слишком громоздкой нельзя. По крайней мере, по сравнению с последними моделями Ferrari, которые выглядят просто огромными, ездить по тесным городским улицам будет делом нетрудным.

    Эмоциональное потрясение.

    Все, с размерами я, кажется, определился. Попробуем, что там с комфортом, учитывая, что речь идет о машине категории R, которая была основоположником всего модельного ряда. Какое же определение дать комфорту водителя этой машины? Скорее всего, самое подходящее слово- это «сурово». Да, именно, водителю достаются «суровые» испытания. Ни секунды покоя, тело трясет на жестких пружинах, и те стыки дорожного покрытия, которые в обычной машине преодолеваются легко и незаметно, здесь сопровождаются резкими ударами, которые незамедлительно передаются в салон. Вдобавок к этому прямо позади водителя располагается мощный двигатель рабочим объемом 3.2 литра (6 цилиндров, расположенные V-образно). Так вот, он практически всю дорогу извергает такой рев, что, кажется, дальше некуда! Одним словом, если оценивать все это по общепринятым меркам, то это «удовольствие», без сомнения, тянет не более чем на жирный «кол».

    Да, но с другой стороны, какая скорость! Выше я пожаловался на то, что в диапазоне наиболее часто поддерживаемых оборотов двигатель ревет и грохочет, это так. Но в то же время, какая легкость в достижении того или иного скоростного режима. Это, нужно сказать, меняет все дело. Стоит только водителю выжать сцепление (кстати сказать, это требует определенных усилий), переключиться, а потом отпустить педаль, как машина на какой бы скорости это ни происходило, будьте уверены, совершенно непринужденно рванет вперед с новой силой. Еще бы, ведь в результате целенаправленной и последовательной работы над уменьшением веса автомобиля, в настоящее время ее можно назвать «пушинкой» - какие-то 1270 кг! А с другой стороны, такой форсированный мотор, который просто подавляет своими скоростными характеристиками. Достаточно только сказать, что, двигаясь на 6-й передаче и поддерживая обороты в 1500 об/мин. машина может, если нужно, стремительно перейти на ускорение. И будьте уверенными, двигатель в 3.2 литра справится со всей присущей ему плавностью.

    Я имел случай в этом убедиться, когда решился резко вдавить педаль акселератора в пол. По мере увеличения оборотов двигателя, характерный для этого процесса шум становился все более упорядоченным, машину переполняла энергия, которая легко трансформировалась в движение, и так продолжалось вплоть до того момента, когда обороты достигли критической величины. В этот момент чувство нарастающей мощи, шум работающего двигателя и вибрация слились воедино, и возникла совершенная гармония. В висках моих застучало, в груди возник жар, а глаза, скажу откровенно, стали наполняться слезами. Не думал, что общение с машиной и прослушивание биения ее стального сердца может довести человека до такого эмоционального потрясения!

    Можно просто поперчить, посолить, и будет то, что надо.

    Машина была разработана 16 лет назад, но даже сейчас ее управляемость можно назвать идеальной. Причем, езда по дорогам общего пользования позволяет только слегка задействовать весь потенциал, который изначально заложен в конструкцию машины. Ну что на такой дороге можно сделать? Дать машине разогнаться до чуть большей скорости, чем допускается правилами дорожного движения и, не сбавляя темп, войти в крутой вираж. Я проделал это несколько раз, и всегда машина легко вписывалась в поворот, демонстрируя при этом завидную устойчивость. На выходе автомобиль держался строго в выбранной колее, и это не удивительно, учитывая тип расположения ее двигателя. «Да, - думалось мне в такие моменты, - гонки по кольцевому шоссе этой машине подходят как нельзя лучше». Конечно, отсутствие усилителя рулевого механизма делает управление машиной не таким легким делом. Но зато благодаря этому есть возможность порулить колесами, что называется, напрямую, минуя «посредников». Не просто также управляться с двигателем, который, стоит только скомандовать, разовьет желаемый крутящий момент. Да и к тормозам, чувствительным к любому нажатию педали, нужно сначала привыкнуть. Но все эти сложности, считаю, стоят получаемого взамен удовольствия.

    В современном спортивном автомобиле, как само собой разумеющееся, должен быть усилитель руля, только две педали, различные устройства, которые призваны следить за устойчивым положением кузова, и т.д. и т.п. На этом фоне NSX-R действительно можно считать безнадежно устаревшим и подлежащим беспощадному изъятию «из обихода». Но с другой стороны, любой электронный прибор – посредник, хоть и помогает, но такая помощь сводится главным образом к ограничению водительской свободы. А здесь, в салоне Honda NSX-R он предоставлен сам себе. И вот, представьте, только ты и твоя машина, один на один. Понятно, что управление, когда ты не связан никакими защитными устройствами, может принести значительно больше радости, если только вести речь о настоящем спортивном вождении. И поэтому, если кто-то отдает предпочтение спортивной модели Honda NSX-R, то это совсем не значит, что он это делает из-за любви к старине. Образно выражаясь, если у тебя есть кусок первоклассной говядины, какой смысл стараться делать из него невесть что, когда его можно слегка обжарить, поперчить, добавить соли, и все, ешь в свое удовольствие. Спор о том, какой тип спортивного автомобиля нам нужен, как раз из той же серии.

    Как известно, в 2005 году выпуск машин модельного ряда NSX прекращен, и уже сейчас прием заявок на нее крайне ограничен. Хотя все это кажется мне немного странным. Боюсь вызвать ироничные усмешки, но все-таки спрошу: полностью алюминиевый кузов, компактность, - неужели это такие уж малоценные качества, чтобы легко отказаться от продолжения модельного ряда, вместо того, чтобы просто немного приложить руки и вернуть машине прежний блеск?

    Но, что сделано, то сделано! Останется только выразить надежду, что, может быть, когда-нибудь все повторится, и на рынке вновь появится машина, к которой мы бы относились с таким трепетом. Вот, пожалуй, и все, что можно сказать напоследок.
