The 2017 Acura NSX will be priced from $157,800 so expect the first production model to fetch quite the sum at the auction. It will also be the first all-new Acura vehicle to be auctions for the benefit of charitable organizations and the winner will get to customize their NSX to their choosing.

“The very first production NSX will be such a special and historic vehicle, so we wanted to make sure we treat the sale of it in an equally special way,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager of the Acura Division. “It will be available for purchase by anyone – anyone that is, who submits the highest bid for VIN number 001 at the world famous Barrett-Jackson auction. And we’re pleased to be able to support two incredible children’s charities, Camp Southern Ground and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, with the NSX.”
