MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present another copy of Japan’s 1990s supercar, the 1991 Acura NSX. This particular example was made in February 1991 at Honda’s Takanezawa R&D Plant in Tochigi, Japan. This NSX came to us via a Texas car collection and the previous owner had this NSX for the past 17 years. It’s been serviced and maintained during its time with two separate original owners (owner #1 1991 – 2001 owner #2 2001 -2018). We believe the 76k miles is original according to the data from the current CarFax.
With custom paint by Hills Hot Rods, custom black over Formula Red (code R-77 for the red), the car’s paint and trim are in overall very good order, with a few minor blemishes scattered about the finish. The car’s windows, including the rear glass with its defroster, are in very good order, clear and intact. The car’s lights are in similar order. This Acura’s bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is extremely tidy, the cargo area is in very good order and the integrated bumpers look good.
This car rolls on Nitto radials, 205/45ZR16 in front and 255/40ZR17 in back. Each tire surrounds a lightweight, five-spoke Enkei RP-01 racing wheel. The tires are in very good order while the wheels are in excellent shape.
Tucked behind the cockpit is Honda’s 3.0L V-6 engine with 24 valves, double overhead camshafts, variable valve timing and electronic lift control (VTEC) and programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI). This engine, which breathes via dual exhausts, is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Driver convenience features include automatic climate control, cruise control, power and vented four-wheel disc brakes, power locks, power windows, power seats, power mirrors, tilt-telescope steering column and rear window defroster. Safety features include driver’s airbag, anti-lock brakes and traction control.
Inside, the car’s black interior (code E), is in overall excellent condition. The bucket seats are in overall great shape though the driver’s one obviously shows evidence more wear. The black carpet is in similar condition. The matching headliner is in excellent shape, as is the three-spoke steering wheel, inner door panels, instrument panel, center console and shifter. Rounding out the interior is a JVC AM/FM stereo with a CD player.
The NSX was the first production car to feature an all-aluminum semi-monocoque unit body, incorporating a revolutionary extruded aluminum alloy frame and suspension components. The use of aluminum saved nearly 440 pounds over the steel equivalent in the body alone, while the aluminum suspension arms saved an additional 44 pounds (much of it unsprung weight); a suspension compliance pivot helped maintain wheel alignment changes at a near zero value throughout the suspension cycle. Other notable features included an independent, four-channel anti-lock brake system; an electric power steering system; and Honda’s proprietary VTEC variable valve timing system.
The production car made its first public appearances in 1989, at the Chicago Auto Show in February and at the Tokyo Motor Show in October of that year, to positive reviews. Honda revised the vehicle’s name from NS-X to NSX before final production and sale. The NSX went on sale in Japan in 1990 at Honda Verno dealership sales channels, supplanting the Honda Prelude as the flagship model. The NSX was sold under Honda’s flagship Acura luxury brand starting in November 1990 in North America and Hong Kong.
Competition to this Acura in 1991 included BMW’s 8-series Coupe, Chevrolet’s Corvette, Dodge’s Stealth, Mazda’s RX-7, Mercedes-Benz’s 500 SL, Mitsubishi’s 3000GT, Nissan’s 300ZX Turbo, Porsche’s 911 and Toyota’s Supra.
