The first Acura NSX to come out of the assembly line at the brand’s Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio has been sold for $1.2 million to Rick Hendrick.
Adorned with a lovely Valencia Red Pearl hue, the first production unit also has eye candy elements such as the carbon fiber roof, a carbon fiber rear spoiler, and exclusive interwoven wheels which sit in front of the carbon ceramic braking system. The model also got a carbon fiber engine cover and a custom interior with leather and Alcantara upholstery. Still, the first 2017 Acura NSX is a bit on the pricey side considering a regular NSX with all the bells and whistles will go for around $200,000.
The initial Acura NSX has been sold to car collected Rick Hendrick after fighting off other bidders during a Barrett-Jackson auction in January. Fortunately the high sum is going to be awarded entirely to Camp Southern Ground and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. “Taking delivery of this first new Acura supercar and knowing the proceeds will benefit two remarkable organizations for children makes this a very special moment for me and everyone on our team,” commented the car fanatic. “It’s especially rewarding to see this incredible supercar coming to life in the United States, which is a real testament to the company’s commitment to innovation and manufacturing here.”
