TORRANCE, California – The 2017 Acura NSX, a two-seat, midengine hybrid sports car, will start at $157,800, including a $1,800 destination charge, when it arrives at Acura dealerships next spring, American Honda announced on Friday.
Acura dealers have started accepting deposits for the NSX, Honda spokesman Steve Kinkade told Edmunds.
“That secures a customer’s place in line,” Kinkade said.
A fully equipped NSX with all available factory features and options is priced at $207,500, including shipping.
The EPA has not posted official fuel economy numbers on the NSX and Kinkade said he was unsure if the vehicle is subject to any gas-guzzler tax.
The online configurator for the NSX will go live on February 25.
Acura is calling the NSX, which competes against the Audi R8 V10, Ferrari 458 Italia and Porsche 911 Turbo, its first “build-to-order vehicle.”
Customers can select from eight exterior colors, four interior colors and three seating-surface options.
Other optional equipment includes carbon-ceramic brakes, a carbon-fiber interior sport package and a carbon-fiber roof. Option prices are not available yet.
The first serial production NSX, VIN 001, will be auctioned by Barrett-Jackson to benefit Camp Southern Ground and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
Edmunds says: It’s time to get the conversation going with your Acura dealer, if you want to get your hands on the highly anticipated NSX.
