Avid car collector, owner of Hendrick Motorsports and chairman of Hendrick Automotive Group, Rick Hendrick earned the right to custom order the very first production NSX with a winning bid of $1.2 million at the Barrett-Jackson auction in January.
Rick is no stranger to purchasing charity cars and all the proceeds from this purchase went to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground. Hendrick drove his VIN 001, Valencia Red Pearl Acura NSX off the line with exclusive features like interwoven wheels, carbon ceramic brake rotors, leather and Alcantara interior trim and carbon fiber upgrades including the engine cover, roof and decklid spoiler.
“Taking delivery of this first new Acura supercar and knowing the proceeds will benefit two remarkable organizations for children makes this a very special moment for me and everyone on our team,” said Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports and chairman of Hendrick Automotive Group. “It’s especially rewarding to see this incredible supercar coming to life in the United States, which is a real testament to the company’s commitment to innovation and manufacturing here.”
“The NSX is a pure expression of the Precision Crafted Performance DNA and challenging spirit that defines the Acura brand,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager of Acura. “We can’t wait to give our clients a chance to experience this dream product, and will carry this day’s momentum forward as we continue to invest in and grow Acura.”
