2019 NSX Debuts During Monterey Car Week

Acura displayed the 2019 NSX in Thermal Orange Pearl and 130R White, as well as the NSX GT3 and ARX-05 Daytona Prototype race cars at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, held during Monterey Car Week. The striking Thermal Orange Pearl premium paint option continues the tradition of NSX color names inspired by motorsports venues and iconic corners, and pays homage to 30 years of Acura motorsports vehicles with orange accented liveries.

In addition to The Quail, Acura displayed as a sponsor of the Carmel-By-The Sea concours on the Avenue where spectators could see the NSX GT3 race car, which utilizes a twin-turbocharged V6 powerplant and multi-material space frame. In the 2018 competition year, the NSX GT3 race car has already taken multiple poles, checkered flags and podiums, including consecutive wins on the streets of Belle Isle in Detroit.

The GT3 is currently in its sophomore season of the IMSA Weathertech SportsCar Championship and in the running for the Manufacturer, Team (Meyer Shank Racing) and Driver Championship (Katherine Legge).

The road car NSX models for 2019 are distinguished by a new body-color front grille garnish (previously silver) and high-gloss accents for the front grille, front air intake mesh, and rear bumper outlet mesh. The NSX also comes with an optional Carbon Fiber Decklid Spoiler and Carbon Fiber Exterior Package – including a front chin spoiler, side sill garnish and rear diffuser.

Over the previous model year, the NSX has improved balance, playfulness and controllability allowing the driver to more precisely modulate understeer and oversteer with subtle throttle inputs. The adjustments have resulted in a nearly 2-second faster lap time in testing around the world famous Suzuka Circuit.

The NSX is powered by a twin-turbocharged mid‑mounted V6 engine paired with a 9-speed dual clutch transmission  and integrated electric Direct Drive Motor and a torque-vectoring Twin Motor Unit at the front axle. Maximum peak system output is 573 horsepower and 476 lb.-ft. of torque. 

Produced at the bespoke Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, Ohio, the NSX is available for order, with U.S. deliveries slated to begin in October. Additionally, all new NSX owners have the opportunity to join the NSX Insider Experience, a personalized program that allows NSX owners to participate in the making of their bespoke supercar.
