The next Acura NSX supercar will have a wide range of personalization options, including a potential suite of track-oriented features.
In an interview with Edmunds, Acura Senior Vice President and General Manager Mike Accavitti revealed several details about the highly anticipated flagship. First is the plethora of personalization choices: “The car will offer more factory-installed options than any other vehicle that we have ever had,” said Accavitti. This is in direct response to Acura’s belief that Supercar customers want to make their cars more individual-tailored and unique than ever.
Without going into specifics, Accavitti mentioned cited the example that some buyers may want carbon fiber rather than aluminum, while others may want “features designed specifically for the track.”
With a launch scheduled for later this year, Acura is currently working with its dealer network to ensure proper training for sales staff, though Accavitti declined to say how many of Acura’s 273 US dealerships would sell the NSX. Model-specific tools and a specially designed lift may be required to service the supercar.
“[Customers] will come in well equipped with knowledge,” said Accavitti, citing enthusiasts’ close following of the performance car’s launch. An online configurator will launch this summer, accompanied by a pricing announcement. Thus far, Acura has only revealed that its twin-turbo mid-engined V6 AWD hybrid supercar will come in near the $150,000 range.
