As shared with us last month by Acura, the first production 2017 Acura NSX supercar, Vin#001 will roll out onto the auction floor January 29 at the world renowned Barrett Jackson Auctions, Scottsdale, Arizona, with all proceeds going to children's charities.

Make no mistake about it, Barrett Jackson Scottsdale is the Super Bowl of collector and classic car auctions, with bidders on the floor, on the phone, down the street and from around the globe, generally looking for what they consider to be a “deal,” or a rare find, in a high stakes arena of cut throat, often last minute, anonymous high bidders.

I’ve seen fantastic autos and trucks transported out to Barrett Jackson, rolled out onto the viewing lineup, not meet reserve price, sell for pennies on the replacement dollar, or break segment sales records. You never know what the outcome will be at Barrett Jackson Scottsdale. That’s the game, and Acura Division is here to play it for charity.

2017 Acura NSX VIN #001 may be the world’s most unique supercar

It certainly is one of the rarest! With Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, and a host of prominent sports figures, auto business elite and the great unknown bidding on next generation NSX #001, you can bet that the winning bid will far exceed the suggested MSRP( $156,000 to $205,700+) of Acura’s holo car. Don’t miss our full specifications preview here.

Buyers must pre-qualify, prove funds, and pay a 15 to 17% “Buyer’s” premium to play the game

2017 Acura NSX VIN # 001 will be the most expensive Acura to ever exit the Barrett Jackson Auction review row, to our knowledge. Ironically, Acura NSX’s arch nemesis 2017 Ford G.T. is loosely tied to the most expensive American built car to ever exchange hands, the 1968 Ford GT40 Gulf/Mirage lightweight racer.

One of only 3 examples ever built, Steve McQueen's camera car for the 1970 movie “Le mans” sold at RM Auctions for a reported $11,000,000. I don’t believe that NSX will break $1 million, but you never know in the rarefied world of high profile car auctions what the final gavel drop will bring.
