Acura NSX barrett-jackson

The new Honda NSX or Acura NSX as it is known in the US, will be priced from USD$156,000 in Base spec or from USD$205,000 with all the carbon-fibre options checked. A lucky customer, however, paid USD$1.2 million for the very first unit that rolled off the automaker’s Ohio factory.

The fortunate person in question is the owner of NASCAR’s Hendrick Motorsports and founder of Hendrick Automotive Group, Rick Hendrik, who successfully placed the winning bid for the ‘VIN 001’ NSX at the famed Barrett-Jackson vehicle auction.

On top of that, all proceeds of the auction will go to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation in North Carolina, and Camp Southern Ground in Georgia.

Coming to its second generation, the NSX has some big shoes to fill, judging by the cult following of the Ferrari-slaying model that came before it. The car looks to repeat its glorious history with 573 hp and 640 Nm of torque from a combination of a 3.5-litre V6 engine and three electric motors.
