Prospective Acura NSX supercar drivers now have the opportunity to order one.
Honda Motor Co.’s luxury brand on Thursday began taking orders for the NSX, equipped with a 573-hp, V-6 engine.
It also launched an online configurator that allows prospective buyers to build the car to their liking.
Honda spokeswoman Jessica Howell said Acura projects annual NSX production volume at about 800 units.
The NSX starts at a base price of $157,800, though the least expensive model that Autoweek, an affiliate of Automotive News, was able to configure online came in at $167,700, after factoring in destination charges and carbon ceramic brakes that initially come standard but will become optional later in the year.
The price can jump to $214,489 when optioned heavily.
The build-to-order NSX, a cornerstone of Honda’s efforts to rejuvenate the Acura brand, is available with eight exterior color options, including two that cost an extra $6,000. Other options include a $6,000 carbon fiber roof, $2,500 semi-aniline, full leather power sport seats and a $2,800 technology package that comes with SiriusXM Radio, parking sensors and a navigation system.
NSX production is set to begin in the spring at a Honda plant in Ohio.
