The reason for the abandonment of the model was the low demand for the second generation model. Since 2016, the Honda supercar has sold just 3,000 units, six times less than the first-generation NSX. Recall that in America the model was sold under the Acura brand, and in Europe and Japan – as Honda.

Among the reasons for the failure of the model are the too high cost of the Acura/Honda NSX (from $ 170 thousand), as well as the rejection of the original concept of a light car with refined handling – the Honda hybrid supercar is significantly heavier compared to its predecessor.
