Hendrick, who collects high-performance cars for his museum in Charlotte, North Carolina, bought the VIN No. 001 Acura at the Barrett-Jackson Collector-Car Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The entire $1.2 million paid by Hendrick went to two charities, who shared equally in the winning bid: The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and musician Zac Brown's Camp Southern Ground.
The Acura NSX VIN No. 001 is the latest addition to Hendrick's collection. He also owns VIN No. 001 of the 2010 Camaro, 2011 Camaro convertible, 2014 Corvette and 2015 Corvette convertible, among others.
