For many car fans, it may be quite surprising to see that there is actually an Acura NSX for sale right now. As you can see by the model year, I am also not talking about one of the new NSXs. I mean there is actually an original NSX for sale! As you may have already guessed, today’s article is going to be all about the 1991 Acura NSX!
Due to the fact that the car is highly sought after, these cars are not often on the market. In the rare chance that they do go for sale, they usually don’t stay on the market for too long. Over the years, this car has earned itself an iconic reputation, one that puts it right up next to the Ferraris and Astons of the 90s. And I will say, for a car that was made by a Japanese luxury brand, that is a pretty impressive achievement!
In this article, we are going to dive right into the specifications and talk about what goes on behind the scenes with this car. I think it is worth mentioning that while this car had a great performing engine, it was not just the performance that gave it such a good reputation. This car had supercar performance but could last as long as your average Honda Civic. The engine offered perfect performance and long-lasting quality which is something that, at the time, was simply not available in the supercar market!
So, what kind of engine did this car have anyway? Well, the 1991 Acura NSX has a 3.0 Liter Honda VTEC V6. This VTEC engine is what creates the massive power that this car provides but, since it is made by Honda, you could probably put 100,000 miles on it! The V6 is connected to a five-speed manual transmission. One of the best parts about this car as well is the fact that this listing only has 9,000 miles on it. Which means that this car has only been driven 9,000 miles in the last 30 years!
So, let’s talk about some of the features that this car has. In today’s world, some of these features are not as surprising to see on supercars as they were in 1991. This supercar was partially so impressive because you could drive it to work everyday and have no problems! For example, this car has climate controls, power-seats, a cassette stereo, and it got good gas mileage! Most of these features are standard on every supercar today, but back in the 90s, it was difficult to find a supercar that had power-seats!
The car also has some pretty cool external features that adds to its allure! One of my favorite parts is the fixed rear spoiler that makes this car look so awesome from the back. The rear wing is fixed in place in that beautiful 90s style. In fact, it kind of looks like the Ferrari F40! Also in the rear is the iconic tail light that stretches across the entirety of the back of the car! It really is quite a sight to drive behind this car.
The front of the car is no less notable though. This car has one of my favorite 90s features, which as you may have guessed, if pop-up headlights! When the headlights are down though, the front of the car offers a very sleek look that makes the car look like a bullet at high speeds! Finally, I love the fact that this car has side vents! However, these side vents are infinitely cooler because they are actually real! They provide air to the engine which is in the middle of the car.
I have always been a big fan of the Acura NSX for one reason or another. They were always so interesting to me because of their looks, performance, and features! To add to that, they have also had a sort of cult following for the past 30 years since they were released. They have the reputation of beating out the Ferraris of the time and yet are still able to hold their image as the perfect everyday supercar!
This is just such a great car and the listing is even better. It is so rare to find such a low-mileage NSX these days. So, if you are as interested in these cars as I am, you can go and check it out on Bring a Trailer by clicking here: Bring a Trailer. I will also say that, at the moment, the auction price is not too high for this car and it looks as though it may go for a reasonable price!
