Seller Description

Doug's Take
WOW! This is a fantastic NSX, and it checks a lot of great boxes if you're interested in one of these. For one thing, it's traveled just 13,600 miles from new -- a truly impressive number, far below the vast majority of NSX models on the market (or in existence). This NSX is also an unmodified example with a manual transmission, which makes it particularly desirable to anyone shopping for one of these who's especially interested in the amazing pure driving experience they offer. Other benefits here include an accident-free Carfax report, recent servicing, and a fantastic presentation by the seller -- and I'm very proud to offer this NSX on Cars & Bids.

THIS... is a 1991 Acura NSX, finished in Berlina Black with a black interior.

  • This NSX is equipped with the desirable 5-speed manual transmission.
  • The attached Carfax history report lists no accidents or mileage discrepancies.
  • This NSX is equipped with pop-up headlights, leather upholstery, power-adjustable seats, a cassette player, a Bose sound system, and air conditioning, among other features. The seller reports no modifications.
  • Service records shown in the gallery detail most of the repairs and maintenance performed on this NSX since 2014. It received an $11,208 service from Radley Acura in July 2014, and $1,993 in repairs from Bloomington Acura in April 2021. The results of a multi-point inspection performed in April 2021 are included in the gallery, too.
  • Sold as a Honda in global markets, the first-generation Acura NSX made its debut for 1991 as a user-friendly supercar with Ferrari-like performance and Japanese reliability. Aluminum construction kept weight in check, and the NSX stood out as the first production car equipped with titanium connecting rods. Production of the original NSX ended in 2005.
  • Power for this NSX comes from a 3.0-liter V6, rated at 270 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque. Mid-mounted, it spins the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission.


  • 15-inch front wheels; 16-inch rear wheels
  • Pop-up headlights
  • Rear spoiler
  • Leather upholstery
  • Power-adjustable sport seats
  • Air conditioning
  • Cruise control
  • Cassette player
  • Bose sound system

Known Flaws

  • Page 5 of the 2014 service invoice notes the dealership repaired lot damage on the front bumper at no charge to the owner. It provides no additional details about what was repaired.
  • The seller states the tires are old. He did not replace them in the name of originality.
  • Scratches on the lower part of the front splitter
  • Some exterior dings and chips (shown in the gallery)
  • Wrinkles in the leather upholstery
  • Scratch on the center stack's bezel (shown in the gallery)

Recent Service History

Service records shown in the gallery detail most of the repairs and maintenance performed on this NSX since 2014. Recent work includes:

  • April 2021 (13,495 miles): Wiper blades replaced, climate control system's CPU rebuilt, and instrument cluster wiring repaired.
  • July 2014 (12,427 miles): Timing belt, drive belts, oil pan gasket, fuel pump, fuel filter, injectors, battery, rear brake pads and rotors, brake fluid, clutch master cylinder and dampener, coolant, engine cover struts, and driver-side window regulator changed. The air conditioning system was converted to R134a, too.
  • The seller notes the battery was replaced again in 2016, and that the sound system's amplifiers were refurbished in 2018. No documentation is available, however.
  • The results of a multi-point inspection performed in April 2021 are shown in the gallery.

Other Items Included in Sale

  • 4 keys
  • Owner's manual
  • Available service records
  • Factory tool kit

Ownership History
The seller purchased this NSX in September 2019, and he has put about 186 miles on it.

Seller Notes
The seller points out this NSX's transmission number falls within the range of units affected by a snap ring problem. He adds that the part has not been replaced, but that an inspection performed in preparation for the sale found the transmission to operate normally, exhibiting no indicators associated with a snap ring failure.
