First 2017 Acura NSX Auctioned for $1.2 Million

The 2017 Acura NSX made its long-awaited debut at the North American International Auto Show earlier this year. Before long, it was clear that this particular model had stolen the show. The new NSX serves as an archetype for future Acura vehicles, with new design principles that will be studied and adapted for future models as they’re showcased.

For some, there was no time to waste in acquiring this sportscar. A vehicle of this stature is considered a prize to many. After extensive bidding, the first 2017 Acura NSX to ever leave the factory has sold for $1.2 million at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. For those who are willing to wait a little bit longer, the NSX will go for $156,000 later this year.

The first real production of the 2017 Acura NSX has yet to take place. The lucky bidder who snagged the first $1.2 million NSX will receive a custom model from Acura. This person will have their choice of interior and exterior colours, options and trim level, among a host of other personalization features for this special purchase.

This annual auction attracts bidders from across the country looking to snag vehicles that they consider collectible. Rick Hendrick of NASCAR’s Hendrick Motorsports is the lucky purchaser of the 2017 NSX. He happens to own an Acura dealership franchise himself. This particular purchase set a new record for ViN 001 cars sold at this auction.
