Starting from today you can place an order for the all-new Acura NSX. To coincide with the sales launch, Acura has also launched a configurator at the web address nsx.acura.com which lets you build your ideal version.
Say you are interested in an NSX, but you really don’t care to add any options. All you want is a plain-jane, no-option car. The closest you can get to zero options leaves you with a hefty price tag of $167,700. The configurator lists an available iron brake rotor option which would save you at least $9,900, but currently you cannot select anything but the carbon-ceramic disks.
Acura’s website says the iron brakes will be available later on in 2016. So theoretically, you can get a shiny new NSX for just $157,800. What else do you get for $167,700? Well, not a ton to be honest. You are stuck with manually adjusted seats, no navigation, no satellite radio and a disturbing lack of unpainted carbon fiber.
Most people will likely not plan on buying a $170,000 car with zero options, so to get an idea of what a more realistic number would be for an average NSX, here are a few options that seemed reasonable. The two major options added were the improved infotainment system for $2,800 and the carbon fiber decklid spoiler for $3,000.
Also included in the more realistic car were the red painted brake calipers which added $700 to the price. While not a necessary upgrade, they do make the brake calipers pop quite well.
Acura offers a long list of accessories including illuminated door sill trim for $1,500, a battery charger kit for $299, a $50 cargo net, some floor and trunk mats for $1,200, a car cover for $415, some wheel bolt locks for $125, and finally a whole extra set of wheels for $9,400. This all totals $219,289. If you can live without carbon fiber on every corner of the car, you’ll be able to save almost $25,000.
