Seller Description

Beautiful 1994 NSX with tasteful updates. I have owned this car since the summer of 2015 and it currently shows 71,852 original miles. I had the major service performed including new timing belt and water pump at 68,620 miles performed at Rizza Acura in Orland Park, IL shortly after I bought the car. In addition, new 17” wheels and tires were put on at that time along with a fresh 4 wheel alignment. The oil has been changed every 3 months by a former NSX mechanic. I moved to the Nashville, TN area in 2016 and routine service has been completed at Gary Force Acura in Cool Springs, TN. I have traced the ownership records and have a history of the verified owners. All service records I have collected will come with the car.

If you’ve done research on the NSX, you know that a common failure is the Electronic Power Steering (EPS). This failure results in the loss of the power steering at low speed due to water intrusion into the rack unit. When it failed, you would notice a heavy feel to the steering below 15 mph and the EPS light coming on in the dash pod. I had this problem, but the guys at NSX EPS Repair removed and repaired the steering. Now the NSX EPS works perfectly and is actually featured in this YouTube video:

In addition to repairing the EPS, I had them install new rear axles and the window regulators were removed and new nylon window guides were installed. Now the window go up and down as smooth and fast as they did when new.

Upgrades include:


Comptech stainless steel exhaust cat back system

Timing belt, tension idle adjuster, water pump, compressor belt, alternator belt, oil pump gasket, valves adjusted, spark plugs, oil change, transmission service all at 68,620 miles

New red intake manifold cover w/silver manifold plate

Red Billet aluminum oil cap

Installed OEM air box and restored to original setup  


Euro Boutique center console featuring a double DIN radio cutout designed to create an anti-glare for the stereo screen

New A/C center vent

The new center dash console and A/C center vent were finished in a custom liquid dip red and black carbon fiber finish with an anti-glare satin finish.

Kenwood DNX893S AV Navigation system featuring double DIN stereo with Bluetooth, GPS, reverse tilt screen, HD radio, SAT capable, touch screen and matching Kenwood CMOS-230 color backup camera.

The real centerpiece of the interior is a custom Eurosport Boutique “D” shaped black leather wrapped steering wheel with red stitching and red center steering marker which still utilizes the factory NSX airbag!

New black leather seats with red stitching and perforated leather inserts, and embroidered NSX logo headrests (also extra set of matching non-embroidered headrests will be included).

New red piped Zanardi NSX floor mats.

RRPracing Custom aluminum heel plate, gas & brake pedals


New 17” ASA AR1 silver wheels (7” wide front & 8” wide rear) with Yokohama S Drive 215/40 front tires & 245/40 x 17 rear tires.

4 wheel alignment at 68,000 miles and again after EPS repair.

Previous owner had fiberglass side skirts, rear lower valance and front bumper/spoiler added and painted to match the original Formula Red paint.

The original owner of the car had the dealership paint the black top to Formula red to match the car. He bought it for his wife and she insisted on the red top before they would take delivery.

Excellent condition in every respect!

From concept to reality, the Acura NSX spent seven dedicated years on the tracks to refine it to its peak level of performance before being offered to the public. With Honda’s engineering team instructed to use whatever means necessary to create a car that was both reliable enough for both street and track use, but also exceeded the performance and design qualities of any performance sports car coming out of Europe. They utilized their connection to the Formula 1 racing circuit thoroughly with driver insight from Japan’s Satoru Nakajima, 3-time world Champion Ayrton Senna from Brazil, and America’s Bobby Rahal to tune the chassis rigidity and road handling characteristics to be second to none! It debuted in 1991 using the Acura nameplate in the USA and became Automobile magazine’s Car of the Year!

A great deal of the car’s success lies in the lightweight design. It was the first production car to utilize an all-aluminum, ultra light monocoque body, ultra rigid aluminum alloy frame, and 4-wheel independent aluminum double wishbone suspension components. This all aiding in shedding unnecessary pounds, increasing overall chassis rigidity, and improving handling!

I am offering this 1994 Acura NSX (#20 off the production line) finished in striking Formula Red with a Black leather interior! This color combination is 1 of only 11 made with the automatic transmission. For the year 1994, only 512 were produced and only 66 of all 1994s manufactured were automatics. This car is in superb condition and only 71,852 original miles! Powered by the robust, high-revving 3.0L VTEC engine with variable valve timing, titanium connecting rods, and forged aluminum pistons producing a stout 270 horsepower built with an incredible 8,000 rpm redline! Options include an automatic transmission, automatic climate control, Bose door speakers, tilt/telescopic steering column, dual power seats, power windows & mirrors, power locks, cruise control, full dash instrumentation double DIN stereo with navigation and backup camera. Honda nailed their intentions to manufacture a reliable supercar! History has already proven these cars to be as carefree with maintenance as a modern day Accord!

This wonderfully cared far example sold new from Baierl Acura based in Wexford, PA on January 2, 1994 where it stayed with its original owner until it was traded in on September 16, 1997. I have documented the next 3 owners who lived in and around Memphis, TN and Des Moines, IA. All service and ownership records I have will be provided to the new owner. This includes the major service including the replacing the timing belt, water pump, spark plugs and automatic transmission service completed on this engine at 68,620 miles by Rizza Acura in Orland Park, IL on October 2, 2015.

The exhaust note has a perfect, throaty pitch! This car is amazingly quick and incredibly easy to drive! Also included with this car will be all original keys (2) including the special Titanium key, delivery checklist, all original manuals, 1994 dealership brochures, a fitted red indoor car cover for times of storage. It has had no accidents, never smoked in, and remains in excellent condition! This is collector quality car for the person who wants to drive the car as opposed to having a garage queen! For those driver enthusiasts looking for a fast, agile sports car without the maintenance headaches, look no further!!
