The 2017 Acura NSX is finally, finally here, much to the joy of enthusiasts everywhere. We recently had a chance to drive this bad boy out on the track at Thermal Springs in California, but what about how it’s made? Acura flew me to Marysville, Ohio, to take a gander at its new $70 million, NSX-only factory, the Performance Manufacturing Center.
Yes, that’s right, while the original NSX was built in Tochigi and later, Suzuka, Japan, this ultramodern hybrid supercar is built in the rural Midwest. Fear not — this all-new facility is an engineering feat, packed with more than enough tech to warrant the building of the world’s next supercar.
Much of the new NSX will be built by hand, as one would expect of a car that starts at $156,000 and can easily hit $200,000 with options like a $9,000 exterior carbon fiber package, $3,300 technology package and $10,600 carbon ceramic brake rotors with red or silver brake calipers.
