Clarion Builds Acura NSX
In the ‘80s, Honda was on a mission to develop a car with outstanding aesthetic appeal and the speed to compete with cars coming out of Italy at the time. Honda designed the NSX with the Ferrari 348 in its crosshairs and brought to market a car that could not only hold its own against world-class supercars, but could be driven daily and, as with any Honda, could easily go hundreds of thousands of miles with just basic maintenance. Undeniably, the NSX is an ideal second project for the Clarion Builds program, and we look forward to restoring and modifying the timeless classic with 21st century technology.
The 1991 Acura/Honda NSX is an icon by any definition. It single-handily redefined the super sports category when it launched nearly 25 years ago. It targeted and delivered performance numbers previously reserved for Ferraris and Lamborghinis. When the program began Honda engineers built a super car with the idea that owners could drive their car daily and yet maintain them as routinely as Honda Accords or Civics. But, as time tells today, the NSX has not just delivered on that idea; it has exceeded everyone’s expectations.
Today, the year-one NSX is surely a sought after collector’s car, especially with increased collector interests given the pending launch of the all new 2016 Acura NSX which boasts an impressive amount of state-of-the-art world-first technologies.Following the same principles as Clarion Builds’ inaugural build of an iconic 1974 BMW 2002, Clarion will partner with several hand-selected services and parts providers, as well as specialists that cater to the NSX community and automotive enthusiasts, to bring this tired, high-mileage “everyday supercar” into the 21st century with regards to its electronics, engine, suspension, and anything in between while staying true to the car’s timeless original design and iconic driving dynamics.
