2020 Acura NSX Throws Back To The Original Model With New Indy Yellow Pearl Paint Scheme

Acura brings a new color to the NSX.

The 2020 Acura NSX heads into Monterey Car Week sporting minor updates, and will debut alongside the NSX GT3 Evo race car. The most significant change this year is the Indy Yellow Pearl color scheme, a throwback to the original NSX. The color is a play on Spa Yellow, which Acura says is the fifth most popular color for the original Acura NSX, which debuted in 1990. Pricing remains exactly the same as last year, with the 2020 Acura NSX starting at $159,495 including a $1,995 destination charge.

As far as performance is concerned, you still get the same powertrain as before. Lurking within is a hybrid powerplant based around a 3.5-liter V6 engine and three electric motors. Total output stays at 573 horsepower and 476 lb-ft of torque, while the car weighs in at 3,878 pounds.

Apart from the performance figures, Acura does offer the NSX with what’s called the “Insider Experience”. For $2,700, prospective owners can purchase the NSX Insider Experience in six distinct packages, including a tour of the engine plant in Anna, Ohio and Acura’s Performance Manufacturing Center.

Options for the 2020 Acura NSX

The 2020 Acura NSX now comes in nine exterior color options including the Indy Yellow Pearl shown above. That premium color costs $1,000 extra, while “Andaro colors” like Valencia Red Pearl and Nouvelle Blue Pearl ring in even pricier, at $6,000 for either color. Other options include Pirellli Trofeo R tires for $1,500, carbon ceramic brakes which can cost up to $10,600, and various carbon fiber packages. A gloss carbon fiber roof comes in at $6,000; a decklid spoiler is $3,000; and the Gloss Carbon Fiber Exterior Sport Package kicks the price up by $12,600. Spec a 2020 Acura NSX with the available option, and the price tops out around the $200,000 mark.

The latest Acura NSX will go on sale in November 2019.
