Acura’s fabulous new NSX sports car may be capable of 150 mph or more, but it will be slow in arriving at dealerships.

The company has confirmed that the mid-engine, all-wheel-drive NSX will not arrive at dealerships until the first quarter of 2016.

The $150,000-plus NSX – which will provide Acura with a much-needed “halo” car – was unveiled at the Detroit auto show this year and was originally supposed to have been at dealerships by late 2015..

It will be powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5 liter V-6 and three electric motors that will give it “at least” 550 horsepower combined, Acura has said.

The company also has said that the car will cost in the “mid $150,000” range.

The last NSX was built between 1990 and 2005, and brought Acura critical acclaim.

Late design changes in the NSX delayed validation testing, Acura officials said.
