First production 2017 Acura NSX sold for $1.2 million.

The first production Acura NSX of the 2017 Model Year was sold at a Barrett-Jackson auction for $1.2 million. The 2017 Acura NSX's production has begun and the first ever car to leave the US factory went under the hammer.

The starting price in the US for an Acura NSX is $156,000 while a fully-loaded model will cost around $205,000. Customers who go for the fully-loaded car get a carbon fiber roof, carbon ceramic brakes, and more appropriate options.
The second-generation Acura NSX is built only at the Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio. The car with VIN #001 was purchased by Nascar team owner Rick Hendrick for six times more than what a fully-loaded version would have cost. The Nascar team owner will add the #001 2017 Acura NSX to his collection, held at a museum in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Hendrick has a thing for cars with the VIN No. 001, as he also owns the first production cars of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible, 2014 Corvette, and 2015 Corvette Convertible.
