Seller Description

This 1991 Acura NSX spent time in California, Washington State, and Arizona before the seller’s acquisition in 2023, and it now shows 50k miles. It is powered by a 3.0-liter VTEC V6 paired with a five-speed manual transaxle and is finished in Formula Red over black leather. The car is equipped with staggered-diameter 15″ and 16″ forged wheels, a limited-slip differential, a black roof panel, pop-up headlights, power-adjustable seats, automatic climate control, cruise control, and a Bose sound system. Service since 2022 included changing the oil and replacing the battery and oil pan gasket. This NSX is now offered with service records, a spare tire and accessories, the removed windshield wipers, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Arizona title in the seller’s name.

The NSX featured aluminum bodywork, and this example is finished in Formula Red with a black roof panel and pillars. Features include pop-up headlights, an integrated rear wing, side air intakes, power-adjustable side mirrors, and dual exhaust outlets. A self-healing protective film was installed on the front bumper, hood, and mirrors in 2012, and the seller notes a chip in the windshield was filled.

Staggered-diameter 15″ and 16″ chrome-finished forged wheels wear Yokohama S Drive tires that were mounted in 2017 and measure 205/50 up front and 225/50 out back. The car features a four-wheel double-wishbone suspension with front and rear stabilizer bars, and braking is handled by NSX-branded calipers over vented rotors at each corner.

The cabin features power-adjustable sport seats upholstered in black leather that extends to the dashboard as well as the upper center console and door surfaces. Interior amenities include automatic climate control, cruise control, NSX-branded floor mats, a Bose sound system, and a cassette stereo linked to a remote CD changer. The stainless-steel door sill plates are stamped with the car’s serial number. The air conditioning system was converted to utilize R134a refrigerant in 2020. The stereo was modified with a Bluetooth module, and the subwoofer amplifier and door speakers were repaired in December 2022.

The leather-wrapped steering wheel frames a tachometer, a 188-mph speedometer, and gauges for coolant temperature, oil pressure, voltage, and fuel level. The six-digit odometer shows 50k miles.

The mid-mounted 3.0-liter V6 features VTEC variable valve timing and was factory rated at 270 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque. A Science of Speed coolant expansion tank, radiator shroud, and oil pressure sensor were installed under previous ownership. Service in 2018 included replacing the timing belt, water pump, and valve cover gaskets. The battery was replaced in July 2022, and the oil pan gasket was replaced in March 2023 along with an oil change.

Power is routed to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential. A photo showing transaxle serial number J4A4-1001246 is provided in the gallery, indicating that the unit falls outside the snap-ring failure range.

Items included in the sale consist of a spare wheel and bracket, a license plate holder, and removed windshield wipers.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in California, Washington State, and Arizona from the first entry in December 1992.
