Detailed Acura NSX Model Comes With Real Lights And Sound

Offbeat / Comments

But you have to assemble it yourself.

Ferrari recently announced that its customers can order a 1,000-piece matching model of their car for a hefty $3,215. That's far from the most detailed model offered, as some of these scale models can exceed $15,000. Now, 2021 Acura NSX owners and enthusiasts can enjoy something similar. Japanese company De Agostini will now offer a 1:8 scale NSX, based on a 2019 Thermal Orange example. Sadly, the company doesn't mention other colors or the recently-revealed Type S model.

Measuring approximately 22 inches long, 9.4 inches tall, and six inches wide, this is the largest NSX scale model available. The attention to detail is incredible in areas such as the engine bay, interior, and front hood. Even the wheels are wrapped the correct Sport Contact tires found on the facelifted 2019 NSX.

Other painstaking details include realistic materials in the interior, working LED lights for the gauge cluster and infotainment system, and a removable carbon fiber engine cover. The coolest part of this particular model is the working exterior lights, including the headlights, taillights, turn signals, and brake lights. The various lights are controlled using a small remote shaped like the NSX's center console and are connected to the accelerator and brake pedals. This remote even includes a drive mode selector that changes the engine sounds emitted by the model.

It's less expensive than the aforementioned Ferrari scale models, but attention to detail like this does not come cheap. Rather than selling the model in one piece, De Agostini offers a subscription that regularly delivers new parts with assembly instructions. The subscription includes 110 issues costing 1,790 Yen (around $16.30) each, meaning the full model is around $1,800. And you have to assemble it yourself. If you've got the time and money, and a passion for the Acura NSX, it seems like a fun project.
