LOS ANGELES -- It has supercar power and supercar looks, and now Acura’s all-new NSX has a supercar price tag to match.
The 2017 NSX will start at $157,800 and will top out at $207,500 for a fully loaded model (both prices include destination). Options include carbon ceramic brakes, carbon fiber interior trim and a carbon fiber roof.
Well-heeled buyers can place their orders starting Feb. 25 at Acura dealerships that are authorized to sell the NSX. Acura hasn’t announced when the cars will be delivered, other than saying it will be this spring.
Once production of the 573-horsepower, all-wheel-drive hybrid is running at full tilt, Acura plans to sell about 800 NSXs a year in the U.S., its largest market globally. The cars will all be built to order in Ohio.
Buyers who don’t want to wait have the option of buying the very first NSX -- VIN 001 -- at the annual Barrett-Jackson car auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., at the end of January. The auction company has previously sold other first-edition new cars -- such as the Corvette Z06 and Cadillac CTS-V -- at the Scottsdale sale to raise money for charitable causes.
Acura says it plans to donate proceeds from the NSX sale to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground, a camp founded by singer Zac Brown for at-risk kids and those from military families.
