The 2015 Acura NSX
Twenty-five years after the debut of the original, paradigm-shifting NSX supercar, Acura revealed the production version of its highly anticipated successor—the next-generation Acura NSX, developed and produced in North America, to Canada’s auto media at the 2015 Canadian International Auto Show. The production model, in a scintillating NSX red finish, took the stage with a growl from its twin-turbocharged engine.

The company will begin accepting custom orders for the new NSX starting in the summer, with customer deliveries expected later in the year.
