Clarion Builds Acura NSX Will Be Auctioned For Charity Later This Month
With 100% of the hammer price going to benefit the American Red Cross, this is the most fun way we can think of to help the people of Puerto Rico.
Have you been thinking of making a fourth fiscal quarter 6-figure donation to charity lately? There are much worse ways to burn your cash, certainly. That you can receive a beautiful Japanese supercar with a bangin’ system from Clarion in exchange for your generosity is icing on the cake. In no way could it be construed as selfish if you were to spend a lot of money to buy this gorgeous supercharged mid-engine monster. It’s hitting the auction block in a couple weeks at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Las Vegas. You are a humanitarian, and after your over-the-top bid for this car is accepted you’ll be a humanitarian with a bitchin’ NSX.

This car was a proper nut and bolt restoration done by the Clarion Builds team to bring this iconic 1991 Acura NSX up to its current specification. They’ve carried out a number of tasteful modifications that we 100% approve of. If we had the cash on hand would definitely be bidding on this car ourselves.
The car has been aerodynamically and visually updated with a cadre of aftermarket components. The car was originally black, but has been painted a glorious shade of blue straight from the Lamborghini catalog. Inside the car has been updated to a two-tone terracotta over black Italian leather with an Alcantara headliner.
Perhaps the best part of this build is hidden under the rear glass; the engine. This early car has received a late-model 3.2-liter engine and 6-speed manual transmission combo. Said engine sports a CT supercharger, custom exhaust, carbon-fiber cold-air AEM intake, and custom engine management. At the dyno, the car proved capable of more than 400 wheel horsepower, and spit a whole lot of flames. Of course, we’re suckers for a great set of Rays forged wheels with sticky Michelin Cup 2 tires fitted. Helping those tires stick to the ground is a set of KW Variant 3 coilovers. Furthermore, it’s been kitted out with a full StopTech big brake kit on all four wheels.

Of course, this wouldn’t be a ClarionBuilds car without a booming audio system to delight the decibel hounds and audiophiles. Featuring their top-of-the-line NX807 multimedia system with navigation, fiber-optically connected to their high-resolution, full-digital-sound processor with FDS digital speakers and subwoofer, you can rock to whatever music floats your boat. Additionally, the car features a 360-degree SurroundEye camera system with dedicated interior display and an integrated laser/radar detection system.
The car will be available for auction at about 3:30 PM on Friday, October 20th at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. For way more photos of the build process, check out the Clarion Builds site. Bid on this car and feel good about yourself in the process.
