In the month of March this year, the auto manufacturer announced their new performance manufacturing center where the 2017 Acura NSX was scheduled to be constructed in large numbers.
The center is efficient without questions as the company has already managed to produce its first ever 2017 Acura NSX and has handed it to the first customer. The prestigious car with the serial number 001 was pre-ordered by Rick Hendrick, owner of the NASCAR team. The businessman has paid a massive sum of $1.2 million when the concept was announced. The proceedings from the first car is being sent to charity, the pediatric brain tumor foundation and the camp southern grand.
In order to commemorate the event, the brand conducted a huge event at the PMC where Hendrick was present. Acura NSX’s senior engineering project leader, Clement D’Souza was delighted at the event. He expressed his immense happiness in his speech.
“This day is huge for everyone at the company where we have realized our 30-year long dream. The car is the result of over thirty years spent in research, development and design. The expertise gained by our team in Ohio is evident in the 2017 Acura NSX. It has been rolled out to our first customer but there are many more cars to come. We are glad to be part of this technology and play an important role in moving the automotive industry forward,” said D’Souza.
The first customer of the NSX, Rick Hendrick was given the opportunity to drive the vehicle right off the production line. The car belongs to the elite category with an exclusive range of features including carbon fiber packaging, carbon hood, custom stitched upholstery, rear spoilers, Alcantara trim, alloy wheels and carbon ceramic brakes.
Long time sports lovers are looking forward to a more powerful and dynamic NSX Type R. However, the senior engineer commented that they have to work on a lot of elements before confirming the car. Facts such as investment, time and production quantities have to be taken into account. It could be a limited edition because of the increased costs and reach among buyers.
During the launch event, both the first buyer and the seller shared their happiness in being part of their initiative. It is not only one of the best cars to be built in recent times but a huge sum has been reserved for charity allowing them to contribute to the world.
