Acura NSX Buried Down Under

Acura NSX hops off in Australia

  • Just nine NSXs sold since 2016 says report

  • Aussie NSX costs double Canadian MSRP


The Acura (or Honda) NSX’s return as a hybrid supercar hasn’t exactly been met with a run of customers to their dealer, though maybe that shouldn’t be a huge surprise since the old one wasn’t exactly a big seller until after it was gone either. Now the car’s gone completely from Australia, but based on the sales it’s reported in the last year, we’re not sure anyone will notice.

The supercar has been dropped from the country, Honda Australia confirmed to CarExpert Australia. “The NSX model information was taken down from the website a few weeks ago, as it’s no longer possible to place a new order for NSX,” said a spokesperson from Honda Australia.

Down under, the car was introduced in 2016 and it stickered for $420,000 in dollarydoos. That’s CAD 393,000, a massive hike over the $189,900 starting price in our market. According to CarExpert, registration data shows that Honda sold just two in 2016, two more in 2017, and another two in 2018. Sales spiked to three in 2019, but not a single new Acura NSX has been sold so far in 2020 in the country.

It’s not going away in other markets where it sells a bit better, or at least not that we know of yet.

Like in Canada, though, the Jazz (Fit) will be dropped next year as Honda works to restructure its business in Australia to fit a rapidly changing market. So if you want a new-gen NSX in Australia, you’ll need to find one of the nine current owners wanting to sell, or you’ll need to import one from Japan.
