Acura’s 2017 NSX will start at $156,000 — orders accepted starting on February 25

Acura has announced pricing for its long-awaited NSX sports car and the message that goes along with the numbers says the Japanese luxury automaker is confident in its new car’s abilities and appeal.

With prices starting at $156,000 (excluding $1,800 for destination and handling) and ranging all the way up to $205,700 with options, the 2017 NSX is now firmly in supercar territory.

For comparison sake, when the original Acura NSX exited production in 2005, it cost around $90,000. Factoring in inflation, that same car would cost just shy of $110,000 today, or about the cost of the latest Nissan GT-R.

Orders for the all-wheel drive hybrid sports car will begin on February 25, 2016 and Acura’s online configurator will go live the same day. The first example will be auctioned next month by Barrett-Jackson with all proceeds going to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and the Camp Southern Ground.

At approximately twice the price of a new Corvette Z06, Acura is in uncharted territory with its built-to-order halo car. Eight exterior paint options and four interior trims will be offered with three different seating types. The extra $50,000 of options are applied to wheel designs, a carbon-ceramic brake kit, and a carbon-fiber roof and interior trim package.

Standard is the vehicle’s powertrain, a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine paired with a rear-axle electric motor and two additional motors at each front wheel, for a combined 573 horsepower and 476 pound-feet of torque. The all-wheel drive configuration, mated to a nine-speed dual-clutch gearbox, gets the 3,803-pound vehicle to 60 mph in about 3.0 seconds and on to a top speed of 191 mph.

Designed, developed, and built in the United States, the 2017 Acura NSX will be made in Marysville, Ohio at the company’s Performance Manufacturing Center.

Here's our first look at Acura's sharper, sleeker 2018 TLX sedan
2018 Acura TLX Teaser

Acura is caught in the middle of a major lineup overhaul. Some of its models have received significant upgrades to better compete in the luxury segment. The MDX, for example, has transformed from an also-ran into a compelling alternative with the same high-value price tag. Other vehicles, however, lumber on mostly unchanged, waiting for new generations that are due within the next couple years.

The Acura TLX sport sedan is one of the models that has waited patiently for a redesign. Now, its time has finally come. Acura will debut a refreshed 2018 model TLX at the New York Auto Show next month, but we're getting a sneak peek right now.

Acura's NSX GT3 race car made its United States debut in January at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, which is part of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

Mobile World Congress gives smartphone and wearable manufacturers a perfect chance to show off their latest and greatest, and even make some announcements. There are some laptops that sneak their way onto the showfloor, however. Take for example LG's new Gram notebooks for 2017, which the firm has made sure will be available in stores right away. Similar models, announced at CES, were already available in South Korea, but there are some changes for the North American market.

The laptops are all very similar, and are divided into three groups by screen size -- 13.3, 14.0, and 15.6. They're all 1,920 x 1,080, and the two smaller sizes include a daylight mode that boosts brightness. All models also sport a USB Type-C port, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, and full-sized HDMI, with an extra USB 2.0 on the largest screen size. They also all have backlit keyboards this time around.
