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
