The first 2017 Acura NSX off the production line will be sold for charity at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson sale in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The VIN #001 supercar will be auctioned off to raise funds for two charities, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground.

“Auctioning vehicles for charity is always something very special that we do at Barrett-Jackson,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “Supporting charities for our youth is a large part of Barrett-Jackson’s history and I’m confident this new supercar will raise a significant amount for these two deserving organizations.”

The Acura NSX will be the company's first build-to-order vehicle, offering customers the chance to choose from eight exterior colour, four interior colours, three seating surface options and a host of exterior and interior features, including a variety of wheel designs, brake options and a carbon sports package.

The winning bidder for VIN #001 will be able to customize the car to their own exact specifications.

“Fans of the Acura NSX have been looking forward to its return for years and we’re excited to auction VIN #001 for charity at our 45th Anniversary Scottsdale auction,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson.

“The energy in the room is electrifying for every charity auction, but there is something special anytime we get to do it with a VIN #001 car. I think the next-generation Acura NSX is going to really ‘wow’ the crowd and I’m looking forward to seeing our generous bidders compete with one another for such an outstanding cause.”

All funds raised by the sale will benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground. The former is the world’s largest nonprofit funder of childhood brain tumor research, serving more than 28,000 children across the U.S, and the latter is an educational camp for children aged 7-17, established in Georgia by the Grammy Award-winning artist Zac Brown

The Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale sale, which celebrates the company's 45th anniversary, takes place at WestWorld of Scottsdale on January 23-31, 2016.
