Honda pegs sky-high price to Acura NSX supercar

23 Dec 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

2017 Acura NSX pricing starts at $157,800; here’s how you can get VIN 001.

With all the competition from Los Angeles, NAIAS remains the main automotive event on the North American continent, and it’s the first opportunity for all manufacturers to present their new year resolutions. But you’re getting a lot of tech to geek out over for your money here, if that’s your thing: we’re guessing the new car’s hybrid all-wheel drive powertrain and a complex multi-material composite are at the root of the price premium over its relatively straightforward, naturally aspirated, all-aluminum predecessor.

This teaser image, which I’ve lightened slightly to make the details a little more clear, is supposedly the first shot of the “Precision Concept” we’re going to see at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. However, for 2016 several important European names (like Jaguar, Bentley or MINI) have announced that they’ll be skipping this edition because of cost cuts, focusing on other events that are more relevant for their brands. The car “will help set the direction for future Acura design; in particular, the next generation of performance-luxury sedans,” the company explained in a press release. Exactly how the hypothetical maxed-out $207,500 sticker breaks down remains to be seen, however as the online configurator won’t go live until February 25, 2016. Neat! “It is our intention to more strongly express performance through design and the Acura Precision Concept will serve as the inspiration for the styling and proportion of the next-generation of Acura vehicles, especially for our sedans.” The new TLX was a move in the right direction from the ’09-style TL, which was a dramatic dive in awesomeness from the TL that came before it.

Not only that, but it will be bringing a mysterious concept that could mark a new direction for the Japanese brand, or at least a new era in the company’s presence in the performance sedan segment. Acura seems intent on joining the party, even though the “luxury” part of its description suggests it would mostly target the German and British offerings.
