Seller Description

Doug's Take

The original Acura NSX is a legendary sports car that boasts a high-revving, mid-mounted V6, exotic styling, and fantastic handling. This particular NSX features the highly desirable 5-speed manual transmission, and it's finished in eye-catching Formula Red. It also has a few nice upgrades like wheels from a later-year NSX and an aftermarket exhaust system. Plus, this NSX is offered with an extensive documented service history and a clean, accident-free Carfax report, for added peace of mind.


THIS... is a 1992 Acura NSX, finished in Formula Red with a black interior.

  • This NSX features the desirable 5-speed manual transmission.
  • The attached Carfax history report shows no accidents or mileage discrepancies in this NSX’s past.

Modifications reported by the seller are limited to 16-inch "NA1" chrome wheels from a later model year NSX, a Taitec GT-006 exhaust, a short gear set,a K40 radar detector, and tinted windows.
  • 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.
