You Can Already Get a 2017 Acura NSX on Autotrader for Under $120,000

About a year ago, I posted an article here on Oversteer wherein I expressed shock that the Acura NSX is already around $135,000. Well, time has passed, and now the NSX is cheaper than that. This particular NSX is the cheapest one for sale on Autotrader, and it’s offered for just $117,881.

Although $117,881 is still an enormous amount of money for any vehicle, especially an Acura, it’s a bit of a bargain for an NSX for a few reasons. One is the fact that brand-new 2019 models — just two years newer than this one — typically have sticker prices in the $190,000 to $210,000 range. That’s an enormous amount of depreciation, considering this 2017 model has traveled just 12,500 miles from new.

The other thing that makes a sub-$120,000 NSX so appealing is its performance numbers. The new NSX does 0-60 miles per hour in three seconds, and it hits a top speed of 190 mph — figures that rival McLaren or Ferrari, but from a more practical, reliable car brand with a larger dealership and service network. The fact that the NSX is now also far, far more affordable than those rivals is a big deal, too.

Sure, the new NSX didn’t quite get a warm reception when it debuted, largely on account of its price. Now that it’s getting cheaper, it’s easy to see why the NSX is starting to become tremendously appealing. Find an Acura NSX for sale

  1. Still rather own an Audi R8 for what you could buy with that money. Just feel it has more of an “it” factor and relies more on traditional power so it will age better. Plus I still can’t get over the Honda parts inside this.

  2. I’m shocked that these haven’t depreciated even more. The MSRP base was $160k, but lots of stupid carbon fiber extras tacked on an extra $30-50k in pointless options.
    Ummmm, a brand new 2020 C8 mid-engine with a targa top will be about half the price of this used 2017. No brainer
