Acura Will Repair Your Crashed Car
If you have a $158,000, 573-horsepower, hybrid aluminum supercar, you’d be forgiven for not wanting your basic Acura dealer’s body shop handling collision repairs. That’s why, for significant structural damage on U.S.-market vehicles, Acura will take your NSX back to the identical master technicians that built it and have it refurbished to factory standards.
And yes, consumers of the NSX GT3 race car get the identical service. That implies that, if you’re a privateer race team that crashes your NSX GT3 before a race, Acura’s Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio will either directly deal with repairs or coordinate together with your team to get parts shipped and answer questions from the team mechanics.
We should note that, although PMC is constructing a set of limited-run TLX and MDX “PMC Edition” automobiles, those Acuras will still be repaired at traditional body outlets.
So far, PMC has refurbished more than 15 NSXs for the reason that model launched in 2016. In response to a representative for the plant, insurance typically covers PMC as a certified repair shop for the NSX.
As a result of it’s actually where every part of the NSX is assembled, PMC can deal with all aspects of collision repairs from the structural components to panel alternative and repainting.
That is fairly unique among manufacturing vehicles, as firms from McLaren to Lamborghini work with a network of factory-authorized body outlets. Because the U.S. is the most important market for both McLaren and Lamborghini, shipping cars back to England or Italy could be a lot less viable for them. The NSX—as America’s only homegrown supercar—has an advantage here.
