New Acura NSXs in Berlina Black and Nouvelle Blue
As part of the 2015 Monterey Car Week, Acura has brought a trio of NSX sports cars to The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, two of which are being shown for the first time. The 2016 Acura NSX will be the brand’s first build-to-order model, which means there will be plenty of options to choose from for buyers. Along with the Valencia Red Pearl model we’ve seen testing numerous times now, Acura rolled out an NSX finished in Nouvelle Blue Pearl and one in Berlina Black.
Both vehicles have had their aesthetics accented by a carbon fiber exterior package that includes a front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser and exhaust finisher – all in carbon. Up top is a carbon roof while the engine bay on both cars now features carbon covers on the front, side and rear of the engine. To differentiate the two slightly, the Nouvelle Blue Pearl NSX sports silver brake calipers while the Berlina Black model has them finished in black.
The wheels are also different between the two, with the blue NSX sporting Exclusive Interwoven wheels. Meanwhile on the Berlina Black model are NSX Signature Y-Spoke wheels. Both vehicles have been outfitted with a color-matched rear decklid spoiler.
On the inside, Acura will offer an interior Carbon Sports Package which includes carbon fiber meter visor, steering garnish, aluminum foot rest and sport pedals. A black Alcantara headliner can be found on all three NSX models on display while the seats feature both leather and Alcantara materials. For those that don’t find the powertrain enjoyable enough to listen to, you can opt for an ELS Studio Audio and Technology Package that adds nine-speaker ELS Studio Premium Audio, Acura Navigation System, SiriusXM Satellite Radio and AcuraLink front and rear parking sensors.
