Sayonara, Honda NSX


The final Honda (Acura) NSX Type S has rolled off the assembly line at the Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, Ohio.

Finished in Gotham Gray matte paint, the final second-generation NSX, badged #350 of 350, marks the end of the hybrid-electric supercar’s storied run, which began in 2016.

Instantly recognizable by its distinctive and more aggressive front and rear styling, the NSX Type S features unique 5-spoke wheels, stickier Pirelli P-Zero tires, a retuned Adaptive Damper System, Type S decals and a standard carbon fiber roof.

Under its available carbon fiber engine cover is an updated version of the supercar’s twin-turbocharged V6 and three-motor hybrid system that produces 600 horsepower and 667 Nm of torque.

The supercar’s 9-speed DCT and revolutionary torque-vectoring Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive also are retuned to maximize performance. An available Lightweight Package includes Carbon Ceramic Brakes, Carbon Fiber Engine Cover and Carbon Fiber interior package, reducing total curb weight by nearly 26 kilograms.

The first-generation NSX, which went on sale in 1990, realized a significant weight reduction by adopting an all-aluminum monocoque body, a world’s first for mass-production vehicles. As the “New Sports eXperience,” it brought together state-of-the-art technologies of the time and achieved both excellent dynamic performance and ease of driving at a high level.
