The Acura NSX might be an extraordinary car, but it doesn’t sell. Last year its maker sold a paltry 170 units in the United States. This year the company is on track for a slight improvement, but that’s with heavy incentives and frankly the numbers remain abysmally low.
For 2020, Acura hopes to give the supercar a boost with the reintroduction of two colour choices that marked the history of the model, called Berlina Black and Indy Yellow Pearl. The latter one is a direct tribute to the Yellow Spa colour available for the original NSX between 1997 and 2003. This colour was in fact the fifth most-popular choice among buyers of that first generation, and today it’s one of the hottest versions on the classic-car market.
For the 2020 edition, the NSX comes by default in Berlina Black, with Indy Yellow Pearl being a $1,000 option. This is actually a great deal when you consider that the Valencia Red Pearl and Nouvelle Blue Pearl colours will cost buyers another $6,000.
Mechanically, the new version is set to remain unchanged for 2020, this despite persistent rumours pointing to an even more-powerful version. As for the current version, you can check out the recent on-track review by our intrepid Vincent Aubé who recently had the chance to take the NSX onto the MoSport circuit in Ontario.
