Actual sales start later this year.

Australia loves high-performance cars and everybody knows it. That’s why BMW decided to send up to 100 extra units of the M2 Coupe to the country this year, while Alpina is gearing up for the market launch of the B4 Bi-Turbo Coupe in November.

Now it’s time for the Honda NSX to shows its face in Australia for the first time and a “sleek pre-production model” arrived at Melbourne dealership. It will be showcased around Australia at the five nominated Honda Australia dealers who will sell the hybrid supercar.

Speaking of sales, the vehicle, which we tested back in May, will be available in the country in late 2016 with pricing and full specifications to be announced closer to launch. It is manufactured exclusively in the United States, at the Honda Performance Manufacturing Centre in Marysville, Ohio, where 100 production experts are responsible for manufacturing the full bodywork, paintwork and final assembly. Between six and eight are produced each week.

“We expect the NSX to be a very exclusive car and as a technology and design statement, it represents the pinnacle of Honda automotive expertise,” Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins. “It’s already gained rave reviews in other markets, providing exhilarating performance, handling and luxury in a supercar.”

The NSX was last sold in Australia between 1991 and 2002 when a total of 280 units were sold.
