LOS ANGELES: Acura (Honda) launched its NSX Insider Experience programme that allows owners of the supercar in the US to experience its making.

The program (starting from US$2,700 (RM) gives owners a curated, one-on-one tour of key Acura facilities across Ohio, America, including the Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) - where the NSX is built, and the NSX engine assembly room at the Anna Engine Plant.

Guests also have the opportunity to track one of the vehicle, guided by professional drivers, on the same proving grounds where it was developed and tuned – the Transportation Research Center.

The unique design of the PMC allows owners to interact with associates during key points in the build process and current owners can now begin participating in the experience.

The NSX Insider Experience gives owners exclusive access to the making of their own supercar.

From now onwards, new owners have the opportunity to witness and participate in the making of their bespoked car and even place the Acura emblem on their vehicle.

The NSX Insider Experience offers personalized service from an Acura NSX concierge who will handle all tour details, from crafting the package to making travel arrangements including hotel accommodations, ground transportation, restaurant reservations and evening entertainment options.

Upon arrival, owners will be greeted by an onsite guide who will host them through the entire experience.

At the NSX engine assembly room, owners will witness how each NSX engine is machine balanced, bench tested and broken-in to the equivalent of 240km of service, to help ensure that every NSX engine is track-ready upon customer delivery.

In addition, the experience includes viewing of the engine installation, along with the NSX's revolutionary front-mounted Twin Motor Unit, which enables electrically powered torque vectoring, a world's first capability among sports cars.

As part of the programme, Acura has partnered with Le Méridien's luxury Joseph Hotel in Columbus, Ohio, where NSX owners can enjoy a one-of-a-kind guest experience in a custom NSX room at The Joseph, the official hotel of the NSX Insider Experience.
