It’s not too often that an automotive hero car gets to say that it rolled off of the production line for the first time, twice. The Acura NSX is officially reborn, with car number 001 being rolled off of the line and on its way to Rick Hendricks. The car was auctioned off for charity at Barrett Jackson back in January at the low price of 1.2 million dollars. All of the proceeds were given to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground.
Rick drove his Valencia Red Pearl NSX off of the line with a few custom ordered parts over the factory cars. Interwoven wheels and carbon ceramic brake rotors add to the already incredible performance, the leather and Alcantara interior give more luxury and add to the sport luxury trend we’ve seen over the last few years, and the carbon fiber decklid, engine cover, and rear spoiler set the car apart from the rest.
Hendricks Motorsports is particularly excited about the NSX due to the fact that it’s made right here in the United States. The car is produced at Acura’s new Performance Manufacturing Center or PMC for short, located in Marysville Ohio. Meanwhile the engine is built not far away in the company’s largest engine plant. Master builder’s hand-build each NSX engine and break it in with roughly 150 miles of dyno time to ensure that each car is track ready out of the box. All of this further proves Acura’s commitment to bringing innovation and manufacturing back to the country.
