Finding a Rare New Acura NSX in 2022
Even though a car ceases to be produced, it isn’t necessarily unavailable right away. Dealers can hold on to their old models for periods of time, extending from a couple weeks up to some years. As an example, Acura laid down the last NSX in November 2022, yet they still sold five of them in 2023 since there were a few left in dealers’ stockrooms.
Acura shifted three examples of the NSX in January and sold one each during February and March. Subsequently, for the remainder of the year, no more of the hybrid sports vehicles were disposed of.
You still stand an opportunity of acquiring a new NSX if you desire. There are still several available, if you’re ready to fork out extra money. A merchant in Florida has one Type S edition in Thermal Orange Pearl which is listed for an astounding price tag of $349,000 – considerably higher than its original base cost of $169,500. Periodically, examples elsewhere, like Ohio and California, come onto the market as well; but one must talk to the dealer regarding pricing specifics.
The 2017 model year marked the start of sales for the second generation NSX. Boasting a combination of a twin-turbocharged 3.5 liter V6 and three electric motors, this square rigger had 573 horsepower at its disposal. Modified sway bars and software enhancements were among the enhancements for the 2019 variation.
The all-new Type S debuted for the year 2022, with only 350 models worldwide made available. Of which, 300 were sold in the U.S. – all within one day! This was thanks to new engine and transmission updates that boosted power output to a remarkable 600hp. Featuring an optional Lightweight Package, there was an extra cost of $182,500 added, including carbon-ceramic brakes, a carbon fiber engine cover mod, plus interior details made with carbon fiber. What’s more, you’d find an Alcantara headliner inside the cabin.
Rumors of a third generation NSX being electric are circulating. In August, the company gave us a glimpse of what could be in store for the vehicle future with their Performance Electric Vision Concept (pictured below). Drawing inspiration from an endurance racing car, it has arching shapes for its fenders and passenger compartment as well. No powertrain specs have been released to date, so we must wait to find out more about the potential rebirth of the NSX.
