The luxury brand parented by Honda, the third largest Japanese carmaker, has recently announced the hotly anticipated will be priced from $156,000 MSRP when it debuts in the United States.
Acura has announced the first orders will be accepted from February 25 and future owners will also need to account for the usual handling & destination charges, which here amount to $1,800. On the same day that order books will be opened the automaker will also have the online configurator ready – though the very first Acura NSX will not be available to the wide audience because it will be auctioned off. Barrett-Jackson will take charge in the sale in January and all the proceeds will be donated to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and the Camp Southern Ground. If the $156,000 MSRP starting price is a mere trifle for your bank account you can stretch the NSX to the top configuration, which is going to be charged at $205,700. The hybrid supercar will be a build-to-order model coming with a palette of eight exterior paints and four interior color schemes complete with three different seating surfaces. Optional extras include three wheel designs with painted/polish look, a carbon ceramic brake kit, a carbon fiber roof, and a carbon fiber interior sport package.
The motivation is provided by the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine churning out 573 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque which has been mated to a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission, a 47-hp rear assist motor and a couple of 36-hp electric motors. Tipping the scales at 3,803 lbs (1,725 kg) the 2017 Acura will sprint to 60 mph (96 km/h) in about three seconds and top out at 191 mph (307 km/h).
