As for your dreams of owning VIN No. 001 of the 2017 Acura NSX, well... they’re not happening. Better luck next time. That honor will go to NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick, who paid nearly eight times the car’s price tag for rights to make the first custom order.
I went to the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show with an edict from my bosses: “Don’t just stand around and complain that there aren’t any manual-transmission rear-drive lead sleds there.” Don’t worry, I found one anyway, and it’s a fantastic old Acura NSX!
Acura just dropped six minutes of what appears to be b-roll advertisement footage for the almost-new NSX, except there’s one glaring problem: it’s completely silent.
Year One: It’s not as good as the original NSX, it’s overhyped
Okay, so we did wonder about who’s gonna buy the Acura NSX before. At $150,000, that remains a rather huge question mark. But since then, a bunch of journalists drove the pre-production cars, and the first reviews are out for all to dive into. Oh boy.
If there were ever a World Championship for Things People Think Used to Be Better, Acura would finish in second place. America would, of course, take the top spot.
Love him or hate him, no one can argue that Donald Trump knows how to spend some money. According to this listing on Ebay, in 1992 Trump bought this Acura NSX for his girlfriend, the famous Marla Maples. It has since changed hands and can now be yours, just in time for election season.
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to discuss the new Acura NSX, which is a mythical beast whose existence has been debated since the days when we first learned what a “hanging chad” was.
Acura has teased us with the thought of a new NSX for so long that the thought of one coming in 2016 doesn’t even seem real. Instead, the car can only live in fantasy places made for fantasy cars, such as the Pike’s Peak International Hill Climb. Great choice for a pace car? Yes. Great choice for a pace car.
Rumor has it that the displayed McLaren-Honda is also much faster than the similarly colored horse carriage Fernando Alonso drives during the weekends.
Words simply can not do this car justice. In the realm of exalted sports cars, inhabited by the likes of the E30 M3 and Mazda Miata, The NSX has a distinctly different flavor.
Regular Car Reviews believes buying a stock NSX today is a better investment than betting on the stock market, and the world “timeless” starts with the letters N, S, and X.
The 2016 Acura NSX is nearly ready to hit the roads, and the fact that it’s the most exciting car from Honda in a very long time has us all sorts of giddy. Now they’ve released all the technical details of their upcoming supercar. Will it be any good?
Giving us further proof that Acuras look far better in race spec than in Grandpa-spec, Acura released this pretty picture of an ILX that they plan to reveal at the New York International Auto Show alongside their flagship NSX supercar. Behold, this is the endurance racer they're taking to the 25 Hours of Thunderhill.

I have finally figured out what the new turbocharged, hybrid, all-wheel drive, 550 horsepower 2016 Acura NSX will really compete against: the original NSX. Not in sales, mind you, but in expectations. There is no way the new NSX will escape comparison with its famous father.
I know it's been in development so long it was accused of being vaporware. I know Acura bungled its launch hard over a period of years. And I know it now runs the risk of being "just another" hybrid performance car. I don't care, I'm still excited and optimistic about the 2016 Acura NSX.
With an estimated 550hp and a price of $150,000 the new NSX has the potential to be a serious supercar, but it seems like it took forever to get the car ready for production. If you tired of waiting, or not real keen about having some electric motors with your VTEC, this 1995 race spec NSX-T can be yours.
