End of the road for Acura NSX

The Acura NSX has reached the end of the road. The last of the hybrid supercars rolled out of the automaker's Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio. The NSX first launched in 2017, and a final run of 350 upgraded Type S models was announced last year. Its said that run had a full order book in less than a day at prices starting at $171k. The NSX Type S features a 600 hp all-wheel drivetrain that combines a mid-mounted hybridized turbocharged V6 with twin electric motors driving the front wheels. It can accelerate to 60 mph in less than three seconds and hit a top speed of 191 mph.
Car number 350 went to NASCAR owner and car dealer Rick Hendrick. He bought the car at a charity auction raising money for the Center of Science and Industry's STEM education program and paid $1.1m.
