The Last Acura NSX Has Been Built

Sports Cars / 10 Comments

The second-generation NSX is now officially dead.

As one fast Acura dies, another is born. Acura has just finished production of the 350th Acura NSX Type S, the brand's sendoff for its hybrid supercar.

While that car was rolling off the assembly line at the Acura Performance Manufacturing Center in Maysville, Ohio, a run of TLX Type S PMC Edition cars has just started.

Back in January, Acura began NSX Type S production the way it ended. Both car #001 and car #350 are finished in Gotham Grey with black wheels and red brake calipers. The original NSX was part of a rising crop of hybridized supercars when it began production in 2016.

It seems fitting that it ends now before Acura fully commits to electrification.

This NSX will also be going to a fitting home, too. Acura confirmed to CarBuzz that the car will be heading to a private owner in Florida, where it will live alongside a Gen 1 NSX and a HondaJet.

The special edition Acura TLX Type S has a unique tie-in with the NSX, perhaps best summed up by the photo below. Acura has previously said it will produce the limited PMC Edition run in three NSX-derived colors: Curva Red, 130R White (named for the famous right-hander at Suzuka), and Long Beach Blue.

The first two offerings, Curva Red and 130R, were sold out in minutes. If you're dead-set on getting into one of the most under-appreciated sports sedans on the market, Acura has revealed that reservations for the final Long Beach Blue PMC Edition cars will go live on December 8. As with the previous two color runs of the PMC, only 100 vehicles will be made in Long Beach Blue.

The TLX aside, it's tough to watch the NSX die.

For now, Acura has not revealed details on a successor. However, rumors are circulating that a follow-up NSX could be electric and arrive alongside a new Honda Prelude EV.

We do not doubt that 15 years from now, these cars will be described as "analog," in much the same way we talk about the original, gas-powered, and naturally-aspirated NSX of the 90s and early 2000s. We also expect to see these on auction sites for absurd sums in roughly the same timeframe.
