Acura launches online configurator for 2017 NSX - Details

Would-be buyers can now virtually build their very own NSX via Acura’s online configurator, which went live today. Thursday also marks the first day that you can walk into an authorized NSX dealer and order Acura’s first-ever hybrid supercar.

The cheapest NSX we can whip up with Acura’s online configurator rings in at $167,700, including destination. The optional carbon ceramic brakes are standard — until later in 2016 when you can order iron discs — and add nearly $10K to the already tall price tag. It only gets higher from there. Optioned heavily, including $9,400 wheels and a $3,600 carbon fiber engine cover, the price tag is an impressive $214,489.

Price be damned, the 573-hp V6-powered hybrid supercar still undercuts most Audi, Ferrari, and McLaren-badged supercars. With Audi coming in at around $160,000 with a brand new R8, the NSX still sticks to its budget-ish supercar heritage.

Aside from showing us we can’t buy iron rotors for the NSX, the configurator lets you build the car of your dreams and helps you find the closest Acura dealership to place an order. Building a digital version of your dream car is free, and can take up a good chunk of your work day — we suggest springing for the $1,500 illuminated sill plates, because why not?
