Pintura relembra cor que representou 20% das vendas do NSX de primeira geração

O Honda NSX entra na linha 2020 com uma novidade bem interessante. O esportivo agora pode ser pintado em um tom de amarelo que relembra o do NSX da geração passada. Na época, o nome da cor era Amarelo Spa, a quinta mais popular entre quem comprou o carro na ocasião. Agora a Honda traz a cor Amarelo Indy, que fará companhia para a Preta Berlina como opções herdadas do clássico.

Enquanto a pintura preta é de série e não custa nada a mais, a nova cor será um opcional de US$ 1.000 (R$ 3,9 mil) sobre os US$ 157.500 (R$ 629,5 mil) cobrados pelo Honda NSX 2020. E nem será a pintura mais cara, pois a marca oferece o vermelho Valencia e o azul Nouvelle, ambos por US$ 6.000 (R$ 23,9 mil).

O amarelo Spa (conhecido como amarelo Indy em alguns países) foi um dos dois tons de amarelo oferecidos na primeira geração do NSX e foi a escolha de quase 20% dos clientes que compraram o veículo entre 1997 e 2003. A Honda a substituiu pela tonalidade amarelo Rio durante os dois últimos anos de produção do esportivo.

Ainda é o carro mais caro feito nos Estados Unidos (ao menos até o lançamento do Mercedes-Maybach GLS de US$ 200 mil). O Honda NSX manteve o motor 3.5 V6 biturbo, combinado a três motores elétricos, transmissão de dupla embreagem de 9 marchas e tração integral. A troca pela linha 2020 permite que os clientes participem do NSX Insider Experience, que leva os proprietários para a fábrica para participar da montagem do modelo - um opcional que começa em US$ 2.700 (R$ 10,7 mil).

Cada cliente fará uma visita pela fábrica em Ohio, onde o NSX é produzido manualmente, além de um tour pela fábrica de motores e no Centro de Manufatura de Desempenho da marca. Para deixar tudo mais interessante, a fabricante ainda deixa o cliente levar o NSX para a pista de testes onde o esportivo foi desenvolvido. Um piloto profissional irá ensinar como aproveitar o carro ao máximo.

Ainda há rumores de que a Honda pode revelar o NSX Type R durante o Salão de Tóquio (Japão) deste ano, notícia publicada pela Forbes e pelas revistas japonesas. Em nota, a Honda nega os rumores e diz que é apenas especulação.

2020 Acura NSX Debuts Heritage Color - Indy Yellow Pearl at Monterey Car Week

  • A modern interpretation of sought-after Spa Yellow, offered on the 1997-2003 NSX, Indy Yellow Pearl joins Berlina Black as one of two NSX heritage colors
  • Spa Yellow was the fifth most popular first-generation NSX color
  • 2020 NSX now available for ordering, with first deliveries due in November

The 2020 Acura NSX will debut a striking new Indy Yellow Pearl paint scheme during Monterey Car Week. The 2020 Acura NSX will first be displayed at Concours on the Avenue in Downtown Carmel alongside an NSX GT3 Evo race car, featuring a custom designed livery with yellow and blue accents over the exposed carbon fiber body. The 2020 NSX is now available for ordering, with first customer deliveries to begin in November. The 2020 NSX carries a starting Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $157,500, not including delivery charges. For more information on ordering, visit Acura.com/NSX.

Indy Yellow Pearl pays homage to Spa Yellow, one of two yellow paints offered on the first generation NSX, and will join Berlina Black as an available heritage color for the 2020 model year. Spa Yellow, known as "Indy Yellow" in some markets, was applied to around 20-percent of NSXs produced between 1997 and 2003. For the final two years of NSX production (2004-2005), Spa Yellow was replaced by Rio Yellow.

Each NSX is handcrafted at the Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, Ohio1 and continues the NSX tradition of offering an incredible performance value in the supercar market. The 2020 NSX is powered by an innovative Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® power unit consisting of a bespoke twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine, 9-speed dual clutch transmission (9DCT), and three electric motors supplementing the engine with instantaneous electric torque. The second-generation NSX features an advanced, multi-material body and aluminum-intensive space frame, enabling ultra-high rigidity, compact packaging and outstanding collision safety performance.

NSX Insider Experience

All new NSX owners have the opportunity to join the NSX Insider Experience, a personalized program that enables NSX owners to participate in the making of their bespoke supercar. The program offers a curated, one-on-one tour of key facilities across Ohio where the NSX is built, including the Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) and the NSX engine assembly room at the Anna Engine Plant. Guests also have the opportunity to track an NSX, guided by a professional driver on one of the primary proving grounds where it was developed and tuned – the Transportation Research Center (TRC).

The NSX Insider Experience is offered in six distinct packages with one and two-day tour options, which can be customized to include a tour of the Anna Engine Plant in addition to the tour of the PMC. Additional options include a two or four-hour performance driving experience as well as a tour of the Honda Heritage Center. Experience Packages start at $2,700. More information on the NSX Insider Experience is available at NSXInsiderExperience.com.

NSX GT3 Motorsports Success

Using the same Ohio-made multi-material space frame and 3.5-liter twin turbocharged engine design as the road-going NSX, the NSX GT3 and GT3 Evo have tackled some of the world's most iconic GT races, including the 24 Hours of Daytona and Spa; the 12 Hours of Sebring; Petit Le Mans; and the FIA GT World Cup in Macau.

In the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship, the NSX GT3 Evos driven by Meyer Shank Racing have posted five wins and 11 podium finishes since its 2017 debut, and in the 2019 season, Meyer Shank Racing leads both the Manufacturers' and Drivers' Championships.

In the SRO GT World Challenge America series, the NSX GT3 has earned multiple wins as well, including six pro-am wins by three different teams this year in the new NSX GT3 Evo.

Around the world, the NSX GT3 driven by Autobacs Racing Team (ARTA) leads the GT300 class in the Japanese Super GT series with two podium finishes, and the NSX GT3 has also competed in Blancpain GT Series Asia, China GT Championship, select events in the Intercontinental GT Challenge, the Blancpain GT Sports Club and GT Series in Europe, and the ADAC GT Masters in Germany.

The race-winning, carbon fiber NSX GT3 Evo is offered for sale globally at a starting price of €465,0002 (Approx. $525,000). Since becoming available for customer purchase in July 2017, and updated last year as the NSX GT3 Evo, there are currently 17 NSX GT3s in the hands of professional and amateur race teams globally, with the NSX GT3 Evo certified to compete in more than a dozen FIA-sanctioned racing series around the world.
