New Honda NSX to be produced in Ohio from next April
Almost everything ready for the start of production of next generation NSX, the super sports car that will be released in America under the Acura's brand.
The car, previously always assembled in Japan (registrations exceeded 9,000 units in the United States between 1991 and 2005), will be produced for the first time in its 27 year history in an American plant, the new Honda Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio, with start of operations in April and first deliveries to European customers starting in the fall.
The new Japanese supercar was completely renewed starting from a unique body made with composite materials and by a space frame chassis with a high aluminum content.
The factory currently hosts a hundred workers who are directly involved in body building operations, in painting, in the quality control (for which the structure of Marysville has a glass structure) and final assembly.
The new Honda/Acura NSX is equipped with a twin-turbo V6 engine with dry sump lubrication, everything customized and carefully hand produced in the plant near Anna, Ohio.
