Classic Car Addict is excited to present this 1993 Acura NSX for sale in our Mesa, AZ showroom. This all original NSX is a fighter jet for the road! The intention in creating the Acura NSX was to produce a hand-built, exotic, mid-engine sports car that would establish entirely new levels of performance, refinement, driveability and reliability. The NSX is designed to represent an entirely new definition of the exotic sports car. Only 194 Black on Black NSX were produced in 93.
The design and materials used on the NSX was revolutionary and introduced many industry 'firsts' for the production car market. It was the first production car to use titanium connecting rods, six in total. The body and chassis were comprised of aluminum, weighing just over 460 pounds, much less than steel but with equal strength. The aluminum body housed many advanced technologies such as PGM-FI, Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC), and a direct ignition system. The 3-liter DOHC V-6 engine was mounted mid-ship and matted to a five-speed manual gearbox. With 270 horsepower and 210 foot-pounds of torque, zero-to-sixty was accomplished in under six seconds.
The object was to create an interior that was the sports car equivalent of a jet fighter pilot's helmet. The key elements of this concept were unlimited visibility, a feeling of snugness or intimacy with the interior of the vehicle, and the sense that the cockpit and driver were out in the airstream rather than enclosed and isolated from the environment. The instrument faces are round with white numerals on a black background. The instrument panel is dominated by the tachometer on the left and the speedometer on the right. To the left of the tach are the smaller water temperature and oil pressure gauges. To the right of the speedometer are the fuel gauge and voltmeter.
The Acura/Bose Music System's speakers are precisely aimed so that the pressure wave of the speaker closest to each occupant doesn't overpower the pressure wave from the speaker which is farthest away. This produces a balanced sound from each speaker and the net result is true stereo performance. The AM/FM stereo cassette features Dolby, Dynamic Noise Reduction, and an PM diversity antenna system. The NSX is painted in a 27-step paint process, including an aircraft-type chromate coating designed for use with aluminum. A new water-borne paint for the base coat was developed to achieve a clearer, more vivid color and a smoother surface finish. The black exterior paint is in great shape with a few small rock chips due to being in Arizona.
Legend has it that the Acura NSX was the result of a drunken night of passion between a Ferrari 348 and a Honda Accord. Inheriting the best of both of its parents, the 90s NSX is an exceedingly rare breed today, especially ones of this health and cleanliness.
