Believe it or not, Acura officially produced their first NSX. No really, they did it. It’s not a “near-production” model or a prototype, or a test mule. It is, the actual, #001, 2017 Acura NSX, and it rolled off the assembly line a few days ago in Marysville, Ohio.
Despite feeling like old news, the 2017 Acura NSX is still a relevant topic as the first one naturally fetched a hefty price of $1.2 million, after being auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson show earlier this year. That’s quite a premium over the NSX’s MSRP of $156,000. The winning bid was placed by Rick Hendrick, with all proceeds going to Camp Southern Ground and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
As a refresher, the 2017 Acura NSX comes with an all-new DOHC 75-degree 3.5L V6 and a nine-speed DCT dual-clutch automatic, which is then assisted by an aft-mounted direct-drive electric motor, netting a total of 573hp.
