After years of teasing us with the concept and then even with the ready car, the concrete plan on production of the new Acura NSX is out. Honda, for the first time, will build the car outside Japan, in Ohio, United States, and the production will commence towards the end of April.
The small production facility will have the capacity to produce 800 units a year, employing 100 people. Like all the modern factories, robots will be used for certain operations like welding the space frame. It will take close to 14 hours to build each example of the supercar, which will be powered by the 3.6-litre V6 engine coupled with three electric motors.
The Acura NSX is priced starting USD 1,56,000 (Rs 1.04 crore) with the optional accessories further jacking up the price. This will be one of the first production supercars to be built on the west of Atlantic, although there is a possibility that it will also be shipped out with a Honda badge sooner than later. We have no hopes of officially getting the NSX in India anytime soon, though that should not stop someone who has resources and determination, from importing one.
