Acura has announced that the all-new NSX will be produced at Honda’s new Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio.
The production facility will cost the Japanese automaker $70 million and will encompass 184,000 square feet housed inside Honda’s former North American Logistics facility. It will also be in the midst of Honda’s existing R&D and production engineering operations.
The new production facility will be Honda’s third plant in Ohio and is merely a few miles away from Honda R&D Americas, Inc. Ohio Center that is also engineering the supercar for production. Approximately 100 manufacturing associates will be employed at the site while associates from Honda’s engine plant in Anna, Ohio will assemble the NSX’s powertrain.
The automaker also announced today that Honda R&D chief engineer Ted Klaus is leading the global team developing the new NSX while Clement D’Souza, associate chief engineer at Honda of America, is leading the production team for the NSX.
“We have a very clear understanding of the high customer expectations luxury buyers around the world have for a supercar, and our challenge is to exceed them and create new value for the customer,” said Klaus. ”This new Performance Manufacturing Center will be key to this challenge.”
