TheAcura NSX generation 1 is currently one of the most successful Japanese sports cars in history. With the NSX, Honda has proven to the world that it can design more than just reliable and affordable vehicles. The NSX also reimagined the way a supercar was designed with the incorporation of several cutting-edge technologies at the time, even teaching class leaders like Ferrari a lesson. Today, a good old Acura NSX is worth a significant amount of money.
In order to ensure that the copies currently on the road remain in good condition, Acura is considering the possibility of developing a catering service for existing NSX owners.
None of this has yet been triggered by the automaker, but John Watts, senior manager of the NSX team at Acura, has reportedly spoken to American media Tire Meets Road on the matter. Watts admits that Acura has already started surveying some US NSX owners, but nothing has filtered out for the Canadian market yet.
Remember that the NSX restoration program has existed in Japan for ten years now. John Watts says some 2,000 US homeowners have already been contacted, and a study is currently underway to determine if such a program would be successful in North America.
During its commercialization, that is between the years 1990 and 2005, just under 9,000 NSXs were sold in the United States, and only 701 were marketed in Canada. Acura certifies that a good percentage of these units are still in excellent health. The restoration program could therefore allow the old NSX to become even more popular in the used market. It remains to be seen what price Acura will add to this prestigious mechanical service.
