Build the Dream: NSX Configurator

Your NSX, your way.

Attention: ballers, shot-callers, financially savvy people with real jobs and dreamers, Acura launched their 2017 NSX online configurator at NSX.Acura.com Thursday. That means you can setup the 2017 NSX of your choosing with all of the Acura options your little heart desires. This launch coincides with the start of customer ordering at your local authorized NSX retailer.


This is Nouvelle Blue Pearl, and it's been said to be based off of a custom TLX built by Galpin Autosport for SEMA. This PPG Andaro paint color will set you back a cool $6K and set you apart from those other NSXs you're sure to never run in to.

Once prospective owners have configured their NSX on the site, they can setup a one-on-one consultation with an authorized NSX retailer as the first step in the ordering process. And anyone can also share their custom configured NSX on their favorite social media sites.


The red interior option won't cost you an extra dime, but the Semi-Aniline Leather and Alcantara® Power Sport Seats will bump your price up by a mere $1,500.

NSX fans who share their custom configured supercar on Twitter between February 25-29 with the hashtag #DriveAcuraNSXContest will be entered to win a spot to join the Acura VIP Driving Experience, which includes driving the all new 2017 NSX.


Another must-have option is the carbon fiber roof at just $6,000. Nothing will fit as well as OEM so you might as well just do it.


This is Acura’s first built-to-order vehicle and we can’t wait to see all the different configurations buyers create.

Aaron Gaghagen is a veteran video editor and longtime Honda enthusiast. All told, he’s owned seven of them, and has enjoyed every single minute of wrenching on every single one. Except for that automatic one. That was probably a mistake. In 2010 Aaron teamed up with Brian Gillespie who along with another partner launched Nacho Speed Garage, a venture that capitalized on Aaron’s video expertise to do its part in entertaining and educating the Honda masses. Nacho Speed Garage took everything to the next level. Instead of reading magazines and cruising forums for content, Aaron and Brian were generating it themselves. The demise of Honda Tuning magazine in 2014 was the impetus for Aaron to do something even more impactful, though, which led to the creation of VTEC Academy and aims to carry that Honda torch forward in the same spirt of not just Honda Tuning but Nacho Speed Garage.
