It's $6,000 for paint and $1,200 for mats!?
The new Acura NSX may not be as good as the original, but there’s no denying that the car still has blistering performance. Thanks to its 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 that gets some help from three electric motors, the NSX makes a total of 573 horsepower and can sprint to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds. While that’s quick, the performance comes at a steep price of roughly $158,000. Acura was planning to accept orders for the new NSX on February 25, but it looks like the automaker is giving enthusiasts the ability to build the supercar a bit earlier.
After playing around with the configurator, it’s easy to see how grossly overpriced things are on the NSX. For instance, want your supercar’s exterior to be finished in the shade of Nouvelle Blue Pearl? That will be an extra $6,000. Want your NSX to have some extra carbon fiber bits? Better be ready to fork over $9,000. The madness continues with a carbon fiber engine cover for $3,600, while floor and trunk mats cost $1,200. You’d have to be insane to order the NSX with a carbon fiber roof, so don’t even bother checking how much that costs. Try to spend some time building your ideal NSX without ripping your hair out at the insane prices.
