2018 Acura NSX is a sports car by Acura, Division of Japanese automaker Honda, manufactured in 1990 to 2005 and again from April 2016. Acura NSX was the 1st time officially presented at the Motor Show in Chicago in 1989 as the first sports car brand with a central engine. The NSX is a work of precision-crafted art, draped in colors inspired by the spirit of racing and the subtleties of nature. Each Acura NSX 2016 model is individually painted and hand-finished. The paint process takes place in-house over the course of more than 20 hours per car.
Evoking granite cliffs, cool fog and natural pearls, these sophisticated colors add metallic edge or shimmering pearlescence to the signature NSX lines. Andaro® is a nano-particle aerospace innovation applied to the 2018 Acura NSX to create automotive art, the ultimate supercar finish. It’s pure chromatic color and bottomless layered depths are incomparable. Multi-step preparation leads to e-coat, two coats of primer, five coats of base coat and two layers of clear coat before 16 hours of in-process curing. Once cured, the car is hand-sanded and wiped down, and given another two layers of clear coat. In the case of Anadarko paint, there are several additional layers of nanoparticle clearcoat applied throughout the process.
Each 2017 NSX model individually investigated by the paint team, and a wave-scan tool equitably measures the texture of the surface to ensure there are no imperfections — even those not detectable to the human eye. The result is lush, layered color with luminous shine and depth, for a dynamic effect that accentuates the car’s architectural lines and conflicting surfaces. Engineers call this “color flop,” and the result is striking, the fluid beauty that shifts from angle to angle.
