Australian pricing and specification for Honda NSX
The Australian pricing and specification for the Honda NSX have been revealed with the NSX listing from $420,000+ORC. Ouch.
THE HONDA NSX has finally made its way to Australia wand while the old NSX was champagne motoring on a beer budget, the new car is definitely priced, at least locally, at the upper end of the scale. But Honda is confident that the car that brings “Hypercar technology to the Supercar segment” is worth the money.
“We’ve seen the renewed positive interest in Honda from the Australian public with the arrival of the HR-V and just-launched Civic,” said Honda Australia Director, Stephen Collins. “The arrival of the Honda NSX is an important signal to our Australian customers that Honda is truly a technology and engineering company that can deliver not only efficient, well packaged small cars, people movers and SUVs, but also a high-performance hybrid supercar.”
“As a hybrid technological tour-de-force, the all-wheel drive Honda NSX challenges perceptions about what constitutes a supercar, just as the original did,” he said. “With an extraordinary breadth of ability, the Honda NSX offers scintillating track performance, along with unsurpassed everyday usability.”
Because of its limited availability globally, the Honda NSX will remain a relatively rare car on Australia roads and in the US there’s already a two-year waiting list. Locally, Collins said, deposits had already been placed for the car with many of those putting down money never having seen or driven the new NSX.
“It will be exclusive; so those customers who value such exclusivity will really appreciate the Honda NSX. It will be the must-have supercar in Australia among those owners who appreciate finely crafted automobiles,” he said.
The Honda NSX arrives packed with luxury features and performance technology as standard, where many of its competitors must have high-cost options added to match it, Mr Collins said.
“It’s arriving fully-equipped, for example we’ve made the carbon fibre exterior and interior packages standard, along with carbon-ceramic brakes. It’s a highly competitive supercar package,” he said.
Only five dealerships around the country will offer the NSX:
- Yarra Honda (VIC);
- Scotts Honda (NSW);
- Austral Honda (QLD);
- Nordic Honda (SA); and
- Burswood Honda (WA).
The Honda NSX lists from $420,000+ORC and “comes standard with almost all the options boxes ticked,” Honda said. The NSX will be available in eight colours and there will be four trim options. Metallic paint adds $1500 to the price which, given the price of the car to begin with seems a little steep. But, if you really want to push the boat out, you could spend an extra $10,000 on the Valencia Red Pearl colour.
