This 1991 Acura NSX has some amazing professionally-installed upgrades like a supercharger and six-speed. So while it feels like everyone is out to snatch up the new class of Asian supercars, this is a rare opportunity at something extra special.
This is the debut model year for the now-legendary NSX. It was a styling revolution, and over two decades later, this car still has the power to wow us. It starts with a body that was influenced by Honda's flirtations with Italian design houses, but then matured into its own home-grown silhouette. A seductively low hood and forward tilting cabin hint to the mid-engine power. Deep channel air vents run the length of the car to be as functional as they are stylish. The same can be said for the spoiler that's so well-integrated into the overall design. This is truly a masterful blend of science and engineering. The black paint appears to be the original application, and it still retains a nice luster. But for true flair (and a hint at the upgrades within) this is now riding on Racing Hart wheels.
The original light tan leather interior is a great color combo against the black exterior. Honda/Acura took their time creating their ideal supercar, and that's reflected in the way they created an interior that surrounds the driver while still given you and your passenger plenty of open space. It's this balance of performance and luxury that created the deeply bolster bucket seats that power adjust to your individual ideal position. This same wanting-for-nothing attitude is why this NSX also comes loaded with features like fully automatic A/C climate control, cruise control, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, and the factory AM/FM/CD cassette stereo by Bose. A modern classic also means modern safety features like the driver's airbag and anti-lock brakes.
But the best premium feature is the motor. The 3.0-liter V6 is believed to be original to the car, and this engine was the crown jewel for the Honda/Acura family. That's because the engineers were allowed to build the engine they wanted. This meant race-ready features like titanium connecting rods and lightweight forged pistons. It created a fortified powerplant, which was perfect for this one's upgrades. An Injen Supercharger was added on top of this mighty motor. They also included a fuel management system and DC Sports full stainless exhaust. All the upgrades were done by the Acura dealer, and this was a doctor-owned vehicle. So this legendary supercar has been professionally upgraded and responsibly maintained. They even upgraded the transmission to the six-speed available in 1997-up NSX models. More than just the motor, the chassis brings the NSX into true supercar territory. More racecar engineering was borrowed as the fully independent suspension is connected to a lightweight alloy monocoque structure. It's built with double-wishbones, sway bars, and a perfectly-tuned ride. Electronic power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and grippy Kumho tires complete this total package Japanese supercar.
For those who crave originality, the sale of this first-year NSX comes with the right factory pieces, including the intake, fan, and more. The owner's manual also comes with the sale. So you're looking at a terrific classic that launched the NSX name, but now with even more power! Something this unique never says available long, call today!
