Remember that first Acura NSX with the VIN No. 001 that's supposed to be auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson
? Well itís been sold for a whopping $1.2 million,
thatís almost eight times the carís starting price of $156,000. Itís also managed to break the record for the highest selling VIN No. 0001 in Barrett-Jackson auctioning history.
The winning bidder? NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick
and heís adding this supercar to his first-edition stable
which also houses 2010 Camaro, 2011 Camaro convertible, 2014 Corvette and 2015 Corvette convertible. On that same day, he also purchased
three VIN No. 001 Corvettes from 1955, '56 and '57. The proceeds from the NSX auction will be split between the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground project.
For everyone else who doesnít have $1.2 million to spend on their first Acura NSX, normal customer ordering for this vehicle will open on Feb. 25
and at most, youíll be spending less than a quarter of what Rick Hendrick spent for a NSX with all the add-ons. Think of it this way, youíll be getting a huge discount compared to what Hendrick paid.
The biggest question now is; when will Jerry Seinfeld pay Mr. Hendrick a visit and what will he offer him for the first NSX?
