Bowmanville, ON – After its initial iteration’s demise in 2005, the Acura NSX first reappeared in the form of a concept car in 2013, before making its commercial return in 2016. Since then, the Japanese brand’s supercar has sold by the…thimble-load. In this rarefied segment, the NSX is not the most expensive entry, nor is as old conceptually as many of the others. And yet, buyers for the most part prefer its competitors, particularly the ones with names on them that are prestigious enough to compel the spending of enormous sums of money.
Acura’s Canadian division recently invited a handful of journalists to the MoSport circuit in Bowmanville, Ontario to showcase once again the attributes of the Honda group’s highest-performance vehicle, and highlight the changes that have been made to it for the 2019 model-year.
New colour scheme and more body stiffness
Those who attended an auto show at some point in 2019 might have notices the Acura NSX sporting that new pearly Thermal Orange colour, which it frankly looks fantastic in. Any self-respecting supercar should be offered in such a colour if it wants to appeal to buyers, typically an attention-seeking lot in this segment. If that doesn’t float your boat, know that the NSX is available in seven other colours, including two that will cost buyers an extra $7,500: New Blue Pearl and Valencia Red Pearl.
You can also have the brake calipers painted in the same new orange colour, when you opt for the carbon-ceramic brakes that is; the standard brakes can be had with red calipers.
