Well why not? I’ve always said, “if you’re going to dream, dream big!” That’s precisely what Acura wishes you to do here. As to my personalized 2017 Acura NSX: After initially choosing an optional exterior color, interior color-power seat combination, adding body aero-effects, a smattering of carbon fiber here and there, upgrading to ceramic rotors, installing custom wheels, a tail wing, and carbon fiber top with built in receiver antenna, I took a deep breath and backed away from my monitor. The MSRP kept climbing.

What’s a great car without great sounds?

Then I upgrading to an E.L.S. premium sound and infotainment system, installed illuminated door kickers, a cargo mat, net and battery charging kit. looking to the headliner, I opted to upgrade that as well -- to a material I’d never heard of. But then again, it was going to insulate and cover the interior side of a $6,000 carbon fiber top. No worries! my estimated MSRP including destination charges topped $212,000.

I’d created the ultimate excuse for extended drive time, now how was I going to pay for it?

O.K., arguably there are many high performance cars to chose from in the $200,000 + price range. However, 2017 Acura NSX is a very unique car with performance and technical assets proprietary to Acura. And frankly, there’s nothing else quite like NSX hybrid supercar in this price range -- the competition is much more expensive, and from where I sit, rarer than hen’s teeth.

Argue as you may, 2017 Acura NSX may very well be a measurable long-term value in a rarefied world of collectors-only supercars. You may catch full 2017 Acura NSX specifications and MSRP estimates here.
