Seller Description

This 1992 Acura NSX coupe has been with the seller in California since 2002 and is finished in red over black leather. Power is from a 3.0-liter V6 paired with a five-speed manual transaxle, and modifications include a lower front spoiler, Tein coilovers, Volk Racing wheels, and an aftermarket exhaust system. An oil change was performed in October 2019. This NA1 NSX shows 166k miles and is offered with service records from current ownership, a clean Carfax report, factory shop manuals, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.

The body is finished in Formula Red and fitted with a lower front spoiler from Wings West. The seller states that the roof, front bumper cover, and front spoiler were repainted under his ownership. Blemishes include scrapes on the spoiler, chips in the nose, and touch-ups as shown up close in gallery photographs below.

Five-spoke GT-C wheels from Volk Racing measure 17″ and wear Falken FK452 tires up front, while the 18″ rears are mounted with Yokohama rubber from 2015. The brake calipers have been painted red, and slotted rotors replace the factory components. Suspension modifications include Tein Control Master Flex coilovers and a camber kit.

Power-adjustable seats are trimmed in black leather with red contrast stitching and embroidered headrests. Black carpets are covered by aftermarket floor mats with red accents and NSX logos. Aging carbon fiber-style trim is featured on the doors, console, and shift knob, the latter of which reportedly tops an NSX-R shifter.

The three-spoke steering wheel frames black gauges including a tachometer with an 8k-rpm redline and a six-digit mechanical odometer showing 166k miles, with approximately 76k added since 2002. A stock Bose cassette deck is paired with an Alpine six-disc CD changer. An aftermarket alarm system installed under previous ownership has been removed by the seller.

A collapsible spare wheel is housed in the front storage area, while an air compressor, jack, and other tools are located in the trunk aft of the engine.

The mid-mounted 3.0-liter V6 features four valves per cylinder and VTEC variable valve timing, and was rated at 270 horsepower with 210 lb-ft of torque when new. A K&N air filter has been installed along with DC Sports stainless exhaust headers and a Dali Racing muffler.

A five-speed manual transaxle routes power to the rear wheels. An oil change was most recently performed in October 2019, and a California emissions inspection was passed in October 2019, according to the seller.

The sale includes service records said to date from 2002 onward, factory service manuals, and an owner’s handbook.

The July 2019 Carfax report indicates an accident-free history in Texas, Florida, and California through August 2017 as well as dealer service visits to Valencia Acura in California during the seller’s ownership. Exhaust note and driving videos are shown below.
