Honda NSX gets a special colour for Monterey
Honda NSX Indy Yellow Pearl Edition
The 2020 NSX will debut a striking new Indy Yellow Pearl paint scheme during 2019 Monterey Car Week. The 2020 NSX will first be displayed at Concours on the Avenue in Downtown Carmel alongside an NSX GT3 Evo race car, featuring a custom designed livery with yellow and blue accents over the exposed carbon fiber body.
The 2020 NSX is now available for ordering, with first customer deliveries to begin in November 2019. The 2020 NSX carries a starting Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of USD157,500, not including delivery charges.
Indy Yellow Pearl pays homage to Spa Yellow, one of two yellow paints offered on the first generation NSX, and will join Berlina Black as an available heritage color for the 2020 model year. Spa Yellow, known as “Indy Yellow” in some markets, was applied to around 20-percent of NSXs produced between 1997 and 2003. For the final two years of NSX production (2004-2005), Spa Yellow was replaced by Rio Yellow.
Each Acura NSX is handcrafted at the Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, Ohio and continues the NSX tradition of offering an incredible performance value in the supercar market. The 2020 Acura NSX is powered by an innovative Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® power unit consisting of a bespoke twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine, 9-speed dual clutch transmission (9DCT), and three electric motors supplementing the engine with instantaneous electric torque. The second-generation NSX features an advanced, multi-material body and aluminum-intensive space frame, enabling ultra-high rigidity, compact packaging and outstanding collision safety performance.
NSX Insider Experience
All new Acura NSX owners have the opportunity to join the NSX Insider Experience, a personalized program that enables NSX owners to participate in the making of their bespoke supercar. The program offers a curated, one-on-one tour of key facilities across Ohio where the NSX is built, including the Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) and the NSX engine assembly room at the Anna Engine Plant. Guests also have the opportunity to track an NSX, guided by a professional driver on one of the primary proving grounds where it was developed and tuned – the Transportation Research Center (TRC).
