The vehicle is produced at the Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio, which is the only production site worldwide for the NSX.
The 3.5-liter racing engine uses the same design specifications as the production Acura NSX, including the block, heads, valve train, crankshaft, pistons and dry-sump lubrication system. A six-speed, sequential-shift racing gearbox delivers power to the rear wheels, Acura said.

Said to be the most expensive car made in the United States, the Marysville plant produces about eight to 10 NSX vehicles a day.
The starting cost of the Acura “supercar” last year was $156,000 and tops out at $205,700. All models are custom built, Honda officials in Ohio said.
Honda employs about 13,000 people in Ohio, including about 1,000 workers who live in the Dayton area, company officials have said.
