The Zanardi edition is the rarest NSX that the came to North America. Just 51 examples were produced, with serial number 0 being the press vehicle, and serial number 1 being built for Zanardi himself. The rest were sold to the North American public. Acura built these cars to commemorate Alex Zanardi on his back-to-back championship wins in 1997 and 1998 in the North American CART Champ Car open-wheel racing series. These special edition cars were allocated to dealers based on their NSX sales, so some dealerships never got their hands on one.

The Zanardi edition has the larger 3.2 liter motor producing 290 horsepower and 224 lb-ft of torque (this was the same as the standard NSX). Like many special edition cars, the Zanardi improved its performance through weight savings; “add lightness” as Lotus’ Colin Chapman would say. With a fixed-roof configuration, single-pane glass in the rear, replacing the power steering with full manual rack-and-pinion, lightweight BBS alloy wheels, a lighter battery, and a lightweight rear spoiler, the Zanardi weighed in at just 3015 pounds, 149 pounds less than a standard NSX-T. Acura didn’t stop there, the Zanardi cars also received revised suspension setups, a 0.4 inch drop in ride height, and some unique interior pieces including a special Zanardi signature plaque.
