Acura Adding Long Beach Blue to NSX Colour List for 2021

2021 Acura NSX gets a new blue

  • Reproduces the rarest original NSX colour

  • Acura looking to build interest in hybrid supercar


Acura is releasing a new colour for the NSX, making one of the best colours from the original car available on the latest 2021 model. It’s Long Beach Blue, named for the California street race that Acura has sponsored for some time.

Long Beach Blue was one of the rarest colours offered on the original Acura NSX, now joining Belina Black and Indy Yellow on the palette of NSX heritage colours. Just 88 cars were painted in that colour in the four years Acura offered it, from 2002 until 2005. It’s named for the street circuit in Long Beach that’s currently home to the NTT IndyCar series as well as the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, held under the umbrella of the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach, the 46th GP at the location, while the NSX will race at the track for the first time since 2017. Why so few picked the colour when new, we’re not sure, but buyers truly missed out.

For 2021, the NSX will start from US $157,500, same as last year, with Long Beach Blue, Indy Yellow Pearl, and Thermal Orange Metallic offered as one of the premium colors for $1,000 extra.

Each NSX is handcrafted at the Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio, where the hybrid supercar is fitted with its twin-turbo V6 and nine-speed dual-clutch gearbox along with three electric motors. The NSX holds the production car record around the street circuit at Long Beach, with a 1:35.663 lap set in 2019.
