We're all individuals, so why should the NSX be any different? From the very first handcrafted model right down to the hand-fitting of your own personal factory fitted options, the NSX is perfect in every detail.
Marrying the care of human craftsmanship with the precision of technical excellence ensures the NSX is built to the highest of standards.
For the NSX build process, we developed a working environment where machines could work alongside humans, not the other way round. It was one of the most important decisions we made.
The NSX assembly line: the floors are spotless, space is generous, there's plenty of room to breathe. Technicians wearing sharp white uniforms are constantly checking and rechecking parts before assembly.
All the elements of the aluminium frame are assembled and – in a series of choreographed rotating movements – welded entirely by machines; it's hypnotic. The aluminium frame welds are then checked by laser to within one third of a human hair.
Once the chassis is welded, it's dip-coated with a number of anti-corrosive solutions through a series of tanks, which were purposely built for the NSX.
We assemble the car from the inside out; the hand-built V6 engine and powertrain goes in first. The very last things to be fitted are the body panels and the wheels – all by hand.
Every panel is spray painted before assembly then individually inspected by a wave-scan tool. It measures the texture of the surface to ensure there are no imperfections – even those invisible to the human eye.
Once the body panels are finished and checked they’re carefully moved to the next stage of hand assembly.
It takes us over 20 hours to achieve the perfect paint finish: two coats of primer, five coats of colour and two layers of clear coat. Then we leave it for 16 hours. Once it’s cured, the entire car is finely hand-sanded, wiped down and given another two layers of clear coat before the final polish.
After a final polish, the NSX is ready to go.
The chassis and body panels all go through a process of dipping, to minimise corrosion, in specially made tanks before painting.
The NSX's quality finished interior drives the connection between human and machine.
Made from specially selected top grain leathers, the NSX cockpit comes in three different finishes – each with their own colour options. Whichever you choose, you'll experience unsurpassed levels of luxury, comfort and sports performance.
The Milano leather Sport Seats are combined with Alcantara – a material specially imported from Italy. Famous for its softness, its unique, grippy texture holds you in place at speed. Available in Ebony.

The heated full leather Power Sport Seats are specially treated with aniline for durability and come with an electronic memory position. Available in Orchid and Ebony.
Our Carbon Fibre Exterior Pack includes: front spoiler, rear spoiler, side skirts and rear exhaust diffuser. They give the NSX a touch of track aggression wherever you take it.
The Signature Interior Sport Pack has a leather wrapped steering wheel, a subtle meter visor finished in Alcantara, which can be matched with a roof-liner of the same material, or black cloth if you prefer. For a real focussed sports look, the steering wheel and meter visor are available in the Carbon Fibre Interior Pack along with aluminium sport pedals and footrest.
Extremely light, incredibly strong – it's the material of choice for professional motor racing.
Attention to the finest detail: the polished aluminium foot pedals are track inspired.
Made from forged aluminium for lightness and strength, the stiffness-to-weight ratio is perfectly balanced for high performance. The wheels and Brembo brakes – with optional carbon ceramic discs, used in F1 – keep the unsprung mass of the car to an absolute minimum for better handling.
