Acura NSX Production Launch, Delivery Timing Delayed, Acura Says

MONTEREY, California — The launch of the Acura NSX, an all-new, two-seat midengine hybrid sports car, has been delayed, Acura confirmed for Edmunds on Saturday.

"We had originally targeted deliveries by the end of 2015," wrote Jessica Fini, an Acura spokeswoman, in response to a query. "So the new production/delivery timing is slightly later."

Fini said the car is expected to begin arriving at Acura dealerships in the spring. She said it does not yet have an official model-year designation.

The new NSX marks the first return of the model since the original NSX, which was produced from 1991-2005. Unlike that car, the new NSX features a hybrid powertrain, a twin-turbo V6 and all-wheel drive.

Pricing has not been announced, but it is expected to carry a price tag of around $150,000.

The NSX was on display at last weekend's 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

Acura said the car will be available with a number of factory options. They include a carbon exterior package that bundles a front spoiler, side sills and rear diffuser.

An interior carbon sport package features a carbon-fiber meter visor, steering garnish, aluminum footrest and sport pedals. A nine-speaker ELS Studio and Audio package adds entertainment and navigation amenities.

Exterior colors include Valencia Red Pearl, Nouvelle Blue Pearl and Berlina Black.

Key NSX competitors include the Audi R8 V10 and Porsche 911 Turbo.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers who have been anticipating the showroom debut of the all-new NSX will have to wait a bit longer.
