It feels like just yesterday we saw the Acura NSX in the sheet metal. Now, three years out from its debut in Detroit, the super coupe is getting a minor makeover. At the Pebble Beach Concours, the 2019 NSX with show off new paint, some performance upgrades, and new packaging.
The Thermal Orange Pearl paint job is the most obvious revision. Named after Thermal Raceway in California, it continues Acura’s colorful homage to famous race tracks around the world. And it isn’t limited to sheet metal; buyers can get orange brake calipers, too.
The new color option pairs with updated styling; the 2019 NSX stands out from the previous model with new exterior treatments. The front grille garnish – previously finished in silver – now matches the body color. The grille surround, front air intake mesh, and rear bumper outlet mesh also get high-gloss treatments, as does the optional Carbon Fiber Decklid Spoiler and Carbon Fiber Exterior Package. The cabin gets an optional Indigo blue leather and Alcantara theme.
Standard equipment now includes four-way power adjustable seats, satellite navigation, premium audio, front and rear proximity sensors, and aluminum sport pedals. Buyers can still get the manually adjustable sport seats, wrapped in Black Milano leather and Alcantara, at no extra cost.
