The first much anticipated next-generation 2017 Acura NSX just sold for $1.2 million. The Japanese hybrid supercar was sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, AZ. The car fetched the highest amount ever by the auction house.

The car that will wear VIN 001 was sold to Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports and founder of Hendrick Automotive Group. He is now able to custom order the very first production model which will be coming to market this spring. All proceeds from the auction will go to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, based in North Carolina, and Camp Southern Ground in Georgia. This likely had quite a bit to do with the high price that the NSX sold for.

Do you have a cool car? We would love to share it as well as a bit about its owner with our readers. No matter if it is a classic ride, a stock exotic or a modified street car, we are always looking for interesting cars to write about.

To help us find interesting cars we have setup a forum section to let you share some information about your ride. Use it to tell us a bit about your pride and joy and we will feature the most interesting cars on the main site.

We also know that often it is the man behind the car that adds extra interest. Because of these we may interview owners and if the car is close enough to our office in California, we may even meet you in person to write about your car. In some cases we may even film a short video of us riding along with you in the car and talking about it.

So, click here to head over to the forum section and let us know a bit about your ride. To share about your car you don’t even have to register an account, but doing so will make any future posts easier for you.
