Guess Which Japanese Supercar Finally Gets The Green Light For Production?

The car is late to production, so it’s a good thing it goes 0-60 in 2.7 seconds.

It was sad to hear that the Acura NSX had its production delayed in March of 2015, but now that it’s March 2016, we should be starting to get excited. It seems that all production problems have been sorted because the NSX factory in Marysville, Ohio, has confirmed it will start producing the car some time in April. Despite the fact that Honda is getting the ball rolling, don’t expect the hybrid i8 fighter to come off the line like hotcakes. Like the i8, production volume will be low, with about ten cars coming off the press per day.

However, Honda can shift the plant to overtime or add another shift to meet high-demand scenarios. The assembly plant in Marysville is also not where most of the NSX parts are made. Instead, the parts are imported from suppliers and put together at the plant. Like other high end automakers, Honda designed the plant to allow customers to take a tour to help justify spending $150,000 on a Honda and see how their 560 horsepower twin-turbo 3.5-liter hybrid V6s get built. Fortunately, Honda has a neighboring test track for owners who don’t care about the break-in period. Expect to see these mighty Japanese beasts at American Honda dealers after April and in European lots by next fall.
