The First Acura NSX Raises Record-Breaking $1.2 Million for Charity

February 17th, 2016 by

2017 NSXThe very first Acura NSX was auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale last month, and the lucky winner paid a record-breaking $1.2 million. The 2017 Acura NSX is coming to market later this spring, and pricing will range from $156,000 base specifications to $205,000 fully loaded. Clearly, the privilege of ordering the first Acura NSX off the production line made for an exciting and competitive auction!

And the Winner is…

Rick Hendrick, the colorful, well-known NASCAR figure, offered the winning bid for the first Acura NSX production model, and it was the highest price the Barrett-Jackson auction has ever seen for a VIN 001 model. It’s a win-win with all the proceeds going to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground in Georgia, which dedicates its efforts to children of military families, at-risk kids, and children with neurobehavioral disorders. Other recent Barrett-Jackson auctions have successfully raised big bucks for charity, too. The United Way raised $300,000 from the auction of the first new Chevy COPO Camaro, and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society garnered $200,000 from Jay Leno’s 2006 first-of-its-kind F-150 Harley-Davidson edition. However, the $1.2 million bid for the first Acura NSX is one for the record books!

The Acura NSX

The latest edition NSX is not just any premium sports car. It’s absolutely amazing from a technical standpoint and a pulse-pounding thrill to drive. The NSX is constructed of aluminum and a mix of advanced materials so that it’s ultra-rigid, lightweight, and utilizes airflow aerodynamically. It has a hybrid powertrain that combines three electric motors with a twin-turbo 3.5L V6 engine for a total output of more than 550 hp. Its power and efficiency make for an incredible driving experience. Drivers can choose from a stealth “Quiet” mode to the aggressive supercar “Track” mode. The NSX sports a dynamic, snub-nosed, angular design, which is sure to please sports car enthusiasts.
