First 2017 Acura NSX Sells for $1.2 Million at Auction

Breaks the record for a VIN 001 vehicle.

Years of waiting for Acura's new supercar have culminated in one hefty price tag for the very first copy. The first 2017 Acura NSX sold for $1.2 million at a Barrett-Jackson auction this weekend in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Not only did the car fetch quite a bit of money, it also set a new record auction price at Barrett-Jackson for a designated VIN 001 vehicle. The winning bidder, NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick, earned the right to custom order the first production version of the NSX.

All proceeds from the sale will benefit two charities. These include the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, the world's largest nonprofit funder of childhood brain tumor research, and Camp Southern Ground, the passion project of musician Zac Brown.

Customers can order the 2017 Acura NSX starting February 25, and for a much lower price than what Hendrick paid. Prices start at $157,800, but that number can quickly increase. Opting for extras like carbon-ceramic brakes, a carbon fiber interior package, upgraded wheels, and a carbon fiber roof can bring the total to $207,500. We won't know full pricing information until orders begin and the configurator goes up. No matter what guise it's in, however, buyers receive a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine and three electric motors that produce a combined 573 hp.
