This 1991 Acura NSX is powered by a 3.0-liter DOHC VTEC V6 paired with a five-speed manual transaxle and is finished in Formula Red over Ivory leather upholstery. Equipment includes a limited-slip differential, a black roof panel, pop-up headlights, staggered-diameter forged wheels, power-adjustable seats, automatic climate control, cruise control, and an Acura-Bose cassette stereo. The car was acquired by the seller in 1991, and it now shows 111k miles. This NA1 NSX is now offered with a car cover, service records, a Carfax report, and a clean North Carolina title in the name of the seller’s spouse.
The NSX featured aluminum bodywork, and this example is finished in Formula Red with a black roof panel and pillars. Features include an integrated rear wing, pop-up headlights, side air intakes, power-adjustable mirrors, and dual exhaust outlets. The seller notes an accident that occurred circa 1996, which resulted in damage to the left-rear quarter panel that was subsequently repaired and refinished.
Staggered-diameter five-spoke forged wheels are wrapped in a mixed set of 205/50-15 BFGoodrich g-Force Sport front tires and 225/55-16 General Altimax HP rear tires. The car features a four-wheel double-wishbone suspension with front and rear stabilizer bars, and braking is handled by NSX-branded calipers mounted over vented rotors at each corner. Photos show blemishes and discoloration on the wheels.
The cabin features power-adjustable sport seats upholstered in Ivory leather, while black leather covers the dashboard as well as the upper center console and door surfaces. Appointments include automatic climate control, cruise control, and an NSX-branded phone housed in the center console. The stainless-steel door sill plates are stamped with the car’s serial number. The seller notes that a cargo-area water leak was repaired under current ownership and states that the Acura-Bose cassette stereo is inoperative. Photos show damage to the driver-door speaker grille.
The leather-wrapped steering wheel frames a 188-mph speedometer, a tachometer with an 8k-rpm redline, and gauges for coolant temperature, oil pressure, voltage, and fuel level. The six-digit odometer shows 111k miles, approximately 107k of which were added under current ownership. The seller states that the right-side horn button has been glued into place due to a broken clip.
The mid-mounted 3.0-liter V6 features dual overhead camshafts with VTEC variable valve timing. Factory-rated output was 270 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque. Decals in the engine bay indicate that the air-conditioning system was converted to utilize R134a refrigerant with leak-detection dye.
Power is routed to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential. The seller states that the transaxle serial number is J4A4-1001134, which indicates that the unit falls inside the snap ring failure range.
The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia. An open manufacturer’s safety recall related to the seat belt is listed in May 1995, and a gap in entries is visible from May 2009 to January 2019.
