Acura, a division of American Honda, was the first Japanese luxury automotive brand in the United States. In 2012, Acura announced that it would develop a next-generation supercar... and it would be engineered and built in Ohio. Located in the midst of Honda’s existing R & D and production engineering operations now sits a $70 million advanced manufacturing facility in Central Ohio that’s creating Acura’s dream supercar, the NSX. Production of this exciting new global product began in the spring of 2016.
“The decision to build the new Acura NSX in Ohio was a no-brainer. You have the greatest collection of engineering, manufacturing and R&D talent in the world in one place. What’s more, there is a huge supply base in central Ohio that ensured that this project would be successful. The NSX is proof that in Ohio, we have the ability to produce a supercar—the combination of high-technology, engineering and performance—and inspire the next generation of engineers, designers and makers.”
