The Never-Ending Wait Is Finally Over: The First Acura NSX Rolls Off The Production Line

Industry News

It only took...well let's just forget how long it took.

The dead horse that is the story of the never-ending wait for the new Acura NSX has been kicked a million times over. Consider this the last kick as the first production NSX has just rolled off the automaker’s Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) line in Marysville, Ohio. The PMC was created specifically to build the new supercar. VIN 001 is the property of Rick Hendrick, an enthusiast who dropped $1.2 million at a Barrett-Jackson auction in January for the right to own the first example.

If you were afraid that Acura set up the auction as a way to rake in an ungodly amount of dough fear not because all of the proceeds from the sale went to two charities, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground. The first NSX features a Valencia Red Pearl paint job (snooze), interwoven aluminum alloy wheels, carbon ceramic brake rotors, a leather and Alcantara interior and the optional carbon fiber exterior package. We’re happy the final nail has been put in the coffin on this story but don't think for a second this is the last bit of NSX production news you'll hear. There will be plenty to analyze and scrutinize in the coming months, including monthly production, demand and average sale price.
