Acura gives 2017 NSX Customers Customized Films

Article by Christian A., on February 16, 2017

Acura is starting a new campaign titled NSX Originals. With this, customers who have purchased the 2017 NSX will get a digital and customized film showcasing their highly distinct and made-to-order supercar. The brand revealed that customers in the U.S. have been sent their own customized film. Through this particular campaign, the brand hopes to celebrate how original the concept was for the New Sports eXperience or NSX.

In total, there are 7 unique film versions with each one exhibiting not only the power offered by the NSX but the beauty and dynamism as well. Indeed, each film sent to the owners has been personalized to meet the exact specifications and the various options of their own NSX. Each film even contains the unique serial number of each of the models. The film also shows both the manufacturing process and the technology involved in bringing the NSX to life. Specifically, 7 processes are shown. These are the space frame construction, advanced paint robotics, NSX Rolling Dynamometer, NSX custom hand assembly, Precision Robotic Weld technology, Three-Motor Sport Hybrid power unit, and Zirconium Bath.

All of the NSX Originals can be seen on www.nsxoriginals.com. This includes not only those who already own the models but even those who have had their NSX recently delivered. We suggest that you take a look at the customized model made for Jay Leno which has the serial number 3. This can be viewed at https://www.nsxoriginals.com/acura/en/explore/0003/

Acura Vice-President and General Manager Jon Ikeda shared that while the NSX is indeed a bespoke supercar, it was mainly inspired through an original concept. With this campaign, he added, the brand hopes to share that heritage.

Courtesy of London-based mcgarrybowen, this campaign is only one of the many personalized benefits owners of the NSX have. Other perks include having the 1:18 customized scale model. Unlike other scale models, this one has the same color on the exterior and even has a similar scheme for the interior. The various factory installed features that make each model distinct can even be seen such as the pieces made of carbon fiber, custom wheels, and brake calipers, to name a few.

Acura continues to lead the automotive industry when it comes to luxury models. It does this with the Precision Crafted Performance, the brand’s very own approach to design and technology that allows it to offer an excellent driving experience. On March 27, 2016, the brand celebrated its 30th anniversary and marked this with the release of its first luxury offering. Currently the lineup of the brand includes the ILX sport sedan, seven-passenger MDX, RLX premium, RDX 5-passenger luxury crossover SUV, and TLX luxury sedan. Early next year, Acura is expected to release the next-generation and electric version of the NSX.

Performance Manufacturing Center and NSX Technologies Highlighted

Keyed to seven unique manufacturing processes, the NSX Originals video series offers a behind-the-scenes look at the Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio, the exclusive manufacturing home to the next-generation NSXii.

The seven processes detailed in the NSX Originals films are: Precision Robotic Weld technology, space frame construction, Zirconium Bath, state-of-the-art paint robotics, Three-Motor Sport Hybrid power unit, NSX custom hand assembly and the NSX Rolling Dynamometer.

Precision Robotic Weld Technology: The aluminum-intensive, multi-material NSX space frame and body is constructed entirely in-house, using advanced robotic MIG welding to ensure the highest levels of body accuracy and rigidity to support the NSX's incredible performance and world-class quality.

Space Frame Construction: The NSX space frame uses the optimal blend of materials, including aluminum, carbon fiber and ultra-high strength steel, to deliver incredible rigidity, low weight and precision-crafted performance.
Zirconium Bath: Every NSX space frame gets bathed in an environmentally friendly zirconium material that virtually eliminates waste from the coating process while protecting the aluminum-intensive structure from the elements.
State-of-the-art Paint Robotics: The NSX body is painted using start-of-the-art robotics as the first step in producing a truly world-class finish. This all-glass paint booth allows customers to see their NSX body in the finishing process.
Three-motor Sport Hybrid Power Unit: The NSX's revolutionary power unit is composed of a 75-degree DOHC twin-turbocharged V6, rear Direct Drive electric motor and 9-speed Dual Clutch Transmission, and front-mounted Twin-Motor Unit.

NSX Custom Hand Assembly: Each NSX is hand assembled by 16 highly skilled technicians to meticulous standards of quality at the bespoke Performance Manufacturing Center.

NSX Rolling Dynamometer: Each NSX undergoes rigorous testing to verify its dynamic capabilities before it leaves the Performance Manufacturing Center, including four corner weight checks and dynamic validation of power unit and braking performance.
