Honda officially announced today that the new Acura NSX supercar will be produced at the company’s new Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio, a $70 million advanced production facility encompassing 184,000 square feet.

The production sit is just a few miles from the Honda R&D Americas, Inc. Ohio Center that is engineering the NSX for production and adjacent to Honda of America Mfg.’s Marysville Auto Plant.

“Thirty years ago, building cars in America was a big dream. Working together, here in Ohio and across North America we turned this dream into reality,” said Hidenobu Iwata, president & CEO of Honda of America and the head of Honda’s manufacturing operations in North America. “The location of this facility is in the midst of one of the greatest collections of engineering and production talent in the world. So it makes sense that we will renew the dream and build this high-tech, supercar in Marysville, Ohio.”

The new Acura NSX will be powered by a mid-mounted V-6 engine mated to Acura’s innovative new Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) system.

“We have a very clear understanding of the high customer expectations luxury buyers around the world have for a supercar, and our challenge is to exceed them and create new value for the customer,” said Klaus. “This new Performance Manufacturing Center will be key to this challenge.”
