The 2017 Acura NSX made quite an impact at this year’s Chicago Auto Show

Acura made a big impression this year at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show. Besides showing off its new Precision Concept, it also brought along a 2017 Acura NSX that was white with black accents.

The long anticipated NSX supercar recently starred in a new commercial that aired during Super Bowl 50 and NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick, who also owns the Hendrick Automotive Group, recently bid $1.2 million for the right to be the first person to purchase the 2017 Acura NSX.

The 2017 Acura NSX will be equipped with a twin-turbocharged DOHC V6 engine and three additional electric motors to provide the vehicle with 573 horsepower and a top speed of 191 mph. Those motors will be matched with a nine-speed dual-cutch transmission. In addition, the 2017 NSX will sport a curb weight of 3,803 pounds.

The NSX’s body features a space frame design that’s made out of aluminum and high-strength steel. The floor of the NSX is made from carbon-fiber.

The first-generation NSX was in production from 1990 to 2005, and Acura has teased its possible return for years.

The 2017 Acura NSX will feature a starting MSRP of $156,000 and the fully loaded version will cost approximately $205,000.

Consumers can begin to custom order the 2017 Acura NSX on February 25th at authorized NSX dealers.
