We know you've got a stack of cash just burning a hole in your pocket, and you've been eyeing a 2021 Acura NSX for a little while now - we're right there with you. Now, along with Acura's extra spicy Thermal Orange, Indy Yellow, Nouvelle Blue, Source Silver and Casino White pearl color options, you've got Long Beach Blue Pearl. These all come at the additional cost of 1,000, as compared to the standard 130R White, Curva Red and Berlina Black.

Of course, if you've got over $150K to spend on a new car, then that extra G-bar won't even leave a mark. The new eye-catching hue follows in the NSX's racetrack-themed footsteps and represents the Long Beach Grand Prix, a staple in the motorsports world that Acura currently serves as the event's annual presenting sponsor.

You're already intimately familiar with Long Beach Blue Pearl, having seen is slathered across a limited number of the first generation NSX, after it replaced Monaco Blue Pearl way back in the early-to-mid 2000s. The ultra-deep color is a natural fit for the NSX's sleek lines of yesteryear, as well as the modern take on the technologically advanced flagship.

Like all current NSX models, production is handled at the Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, Ohio. There, a much more detailed assembly takes place that includes all of the bells and whistles so that the end-user gets Acura's finest offering. The PMC also churns out a limited number of TLX, MDX and now RDX models that often carry unique appearance and material touches.

Other than the fresh color option, nothing else changes for the modern NSX, its last noted updates occurring during a 2019 refresh that included stiffer front and rear anti-sway bars and bushings, more rigid rear hub and a reworked electric power steering. Also, standard tire sizing moved up to 245/3519 front, 305/30-20 rear. It's $157,000 worth of high-tech grip and exhilaration, and though none of us will ever have the chance to own one unless it shows up on one of those Instagram raffles that end up paying the organizer twice the value of the actual prize, we can dream.

Superstreet: If there’s one thing you guys hate with all of your soul, it’s the idea of OEM vehicle manufacturers teaming up with one another on new vehicle offerings, the way that GM and Honda/Acura have agreed upon.

Unlike most builds that are a product of some grand scheme of daydreaming and sometimes documenting plans for picking up a specific car and applying a headful of parts and changes to it, this turbocharged 1995 Mazda Miata is the exact opposite. Its owners and builders, brothers Alex and David Wong, had no intentions of

One of the most unexpected things to emerge from an unusual 2020 was just how hot the Japanese tuner car collector market is.
