The countdown to the Super Bowl continues has Acura has released a 30 second spot that will be shown during the first quarter.

Starring the 2017 Acura NSX, the clip features music from Van Halen and "high energy visuals" that are deliberately red, white, and blue.  The company says the colors highlight the fact that the NSX is the "only supercar made in America" and Acura is the "first international luxury nameplate to develop and manufacture products in America."

As part of the Super Bowl celebrations, Acura will launch a Facebook and Twitter contest using the #DriveAcuraNSXContest hashtag.  Fans who post messages with the tag will be entered to win a VIP driving experience that will put them behind the wheel of the high-performance model which has a combined maximum output of 573 horsepower and 476 pound-feet of torque.  This enables the car to rocket from 0-60 miles per hour in approximately three seconds before hitting a top speed of 191 mph.

The company will also be releasing a configurator on February 25th which coincides with the first day that dealers will begin accepting orders.

The Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos will be competing in this year's Super Bowl and the game starts at 6:30 p.m. ET on February 7th.
