The very first production 2017 NSX will be auctioned off this evening at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground. The approximate time of the auction is 7:30PM MST, and the auction is being aired live on Velocity Network (ch. 281 on DirecTV, ch. 246 on Dish Network)





Following is the full text of the description listed for the NSX.

Description
Lot #3007 - Created to bring a new experience to the supercar segment, the next-generation Acura NSX challenges conventional beliefs about supercars, much as the first generation did a quarter-century ago. Combining cutting-edge and world-first technologies, the 2017 NSX breaks the mold through a first-of-its-kind Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive power unit, a multi-material body/frame structure, advanced aerodynamics and a cockpit that supports performance driving on every level without skimping on comfort. The power unit achieves 573 total system horsepower and is comprised of a bespoke twin-turbocharged, dry-sump V6 engine coupled to a lightning-quick 9-speed dual-clutch transmission and three-motor Sport Hybrid system. Acceleration from 0-60 takes about three seconds and top speed exceeds 190 mph. The NSX's electric motors enhance all aspects of dynamic performance - acceleration, cornering and braking - by providing instant thrust, enhanced deceleration when needed, and true torque vectoring that uniquely provides the NSX with "direct yaw" control. Coupled to an ultra-rigid aluminum space frame, guided by state-of-the art suspension, steering and brakes, and driven by its hyper-responsive twin-turbo V6 hybrid power unit, the 2017 NSX boasts instant acceleration, super-precise steering and a relentless grip on the road - all available without its driver breaking a sweat. Marrying this advanced and electrified new expression of Acura performance with timeless elements of NSX design, including innovative body construction and superior cabin ergonomics, the next-generation NSX faithfully translates the inputs of the driver with incredible fidelity and virtually zero delay. The result is a new supercar paradigm, one that only Acura could create. The 2017 Acura NSX is the only supercar designed, developed and manufactured in the U.S. It will be precision crafted at the Performance Manufacturing Center, a brand-new, dedicated factory in Marysville, OH, staffed by a deeply experienced and passionate crew committed to the highest possible quality. Proceeds of this sale will benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground. The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation is the world's largest nonprofit funder of childhood brain tumor research, serving more than 28,000 children in the United States who are living with the diagnosis of a brain tumor. The passion of Grammy Award-winning artist Zac Brown, Camp Southern Ground will serve children ages 7-17 with both typical and special needs. It will be a place for children and their families to learn healthy life skills through advanced programs involving superior nutrition, physical exercise and the latest practices in therapy. **ALL PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT THE PEDIATRIC BRAIN TUMOR FOUNDATION AND CAMP SOUTHERN GROUND** **WILL BE SOLD AT APPROXIMATELY 7:30 PM ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 29, 2016**
