Seller Description

This 1991 Acura NSX is finished in Formula Red over black and was acquired by the seller from the original owner in Florida 11 years ago. The car has since been moved to Tennessee and driven approximately 6k miles. Just 15,500 miles are now shown on the odometer. Power is provided by a 3.0-liter VTEC V6 paired with a five-speed manual gearbox, and recent servicing is outlined below. This NSX is offered with its window sticker, factory manuals, coffee table book, maintenance records, a Carfax report, and a clean Tennessee title in the seller’s name.

Just three exterior paint colors were available on the first-year NSX, and this example is finished in Formula Red with a contrasting black fixed roof. A damage report is noted on the recent Carfax in November 2003 at 9k miles. The seller states that he recently called the original owner, who said the front bumper cover was replaced after it was hit by a piece of a truck tire.

The factory alloy wheels measure 15″ in diameter up front and 16″ out back.

The cabin is upholstered in black leather and retains its Bose audio system, airbag-equipped steering wheel, and leather shift knob. Factory amenities include power seats, windows, mirrors, and locks, as well as cruise control.

A set of rubber floor mats protect the carpets. As pictured in the gallery below, the mechanical odometer shows just over 15,500 miles.

The 3.0-liter VTEC V6 produced 270 horsepower at 7,100 rpm and 210 lb-ft of torque at 5,300 rpm from the factory, which is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission. According to the seller, the timing belt was replaced by Harper Acura of Knoxville in December 2011 at 12,400 miles, and the transmission is reportedly out of snap-ring range. An oxygen sensor was replaced and an oil change was completed approximately two months ago by Pro Toy in Knoxville.

Maintenance records are said to date back to new. The original window sticker and factory books also accompany the sale as shown above. Note that the original coffee table book is present.

The Carfax report displays Florida registration until the car moved to Tennessee in 2008. The most recent odometer update shows 15,400 indicated miles in April 2019.
