NSX Owners Get the ‘Insider Experience’

Acura has launched the NSX Insider Experience, a personalized program designed for U.S. NSX owners to experience the making of their bespoke supercar.

The program gives owners a curated, one-on-one tour of key Acura facilities across Ohio, including the Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) where the NSX is built, and the NSX engine assembly room at the Anna Engine Plant, according to the company.

Guests also have the opportunity to track an NSX, guided by professional drivers, on the same proving grounds where it was developed and tuned—the Transportation Research Center.

“NSX Insider Experience takes our clients behind the scenes to see the precision craftsmanship that goes into each NSX,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager of Acura. “This is a memorable and deeply personal journey that we hope will convey the sense of pride and passion we have for the NSX.”

The 2017 Acura NSX is the only supercar designed, developed and manufactured in the U.S., and is produced exclusively at the Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio. The PMC is home to master technicians who have created sophisticated new manufacturing methods around the unique capabilities and specifications of the NSX, the company noted.

The unique design of the PMC allows owners to interact with associates during key points in the build process.

Current owners can begin participating in the experience now. This spring, new owners will have the opportunity to witness and participate in the making of their individual NSX, including the opportunity to place the Acura emblem on their vehicle.

The NSX Insider Experience offers personalized service from an Acura NSX concierge who will handle all tour details, from crafting the package to making travel arrangements including hotel accommodations, ground transportation, restaurant reservations and evening entertainment options. Upon arrival, owners will be greeted by an onsite guide who will host them through the entire experience.

At the NSX engine assembly room, owners will witness how each NSX engine is machine-balanced, bench-tested and broken-in to the equivalent of 150 miles of service. In addition, the experience includes viewing of the engine installation, along with the NSX’s front-mounted Twin Motor Unit, which enables electrically powered torque vectoring.
