The First 2017 Acura NSX Will Be Auctioned Off for Charity
The return of Acura’s legendary supercar will occur Jan. 29 at the Barrett-Jackson 45th Anniversary Auctions in Scottsdale, Arizona in support of a great cause. All proceeds from the auction will go to children’s charities. The winning bidder will get to take home one of the new hybrid luxury supercars long before they arrive at an Acura dealership in nearby Utah.
Like all upcoming models of the 2017 Acura NSX, VIN #001 will be completely built to order. With a wealth of different body colors, interior color schemes and customizable accents, the NSX stands to be the most unique supercar in the world. And with famous celebrities such as Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno rumored to be taking part in the auction, there’s no doubt the first model NSX will be tailored and outfitted to the max.
With a starting MSRP of $156,000 (plus $1,800 destination and handling) at the dealership, the 2017 Acura NSX will be the most expensive Acura to ever cross the stage at the Barrett-Jackson Auction. With a number of high-profile bidders closely watching the auction, however, the winning bid is expected to far exceed the market price.
Proceeds from the auction will go to two different children’s charities: the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation—which provides education information and scholarships to children in Utah and across the country—and Camp Southern Ground.
Regarding the charity auction, Acura Division vice president and general manager Jon Ikeda remarked, “The very first production NSX will be such a special and historic vehicle, so we wanted to make sure we treat the sale of it in an equally special way.”
While the 2017 Acura NSX VIN #001 will go to the highest bidder, pre-orders of the luxury supercar will be available to the general public on Feb. 25. After customizing their personal NSX, buyers will be able to pick up their new hybrid sports cars at any pre-approved Acura NSX dealership, such as here at Mike Hale Acura in Utah.
