This 1991 Acura NSX is powered by a 3.0-liter VTEC V6 paired with a five-speed manual transaxle and is finished in black over black leather upholstery. Equipment includes a limited-slip differential, pop-up headlights, and black-finished staggered-diameter forged wheels as well as automatic climate control, cruise control, an Acura-Bose cassette stereo linked to a CD changer, and power-adjustable seats. The car was first registered in Arizona, and it also spent time in California and Indiana before it was acquired by the seller in 2017. The oil pan gasket and the CV axle boots were replaced in April 2020. This NSX shows 32k miles and is now offered with manufacturer’s literature, service records, removed wheels, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Arizona title in the seller’s name.
The NSX featured aluminum bodywork, and this example left the factory finished in Berlina Black (NH-547). Features include an integrated rear wing, side air intakes, pop-up headlights, power-adjustable mirrors, and dual exhaust outlets. The seller states that the front valance was repainted in April 2020, and touched-up areas are noted on various panels.
Staggered-diameter ScienceofSpeed 2002 NSX-style forged wheels were powder-coated black and mounted with 215/40-17 front and 255/40-18 rear Dunlop Direzza ZIII tires in March 2023. The car features a four-wheel double-wishbone suspension with front and rear stabilizer bars, and braking is handled by NSX-branded calipers fitted over vented rotors at each corner.
The power-adjustable sport seats are upholstered in black leather, which extends to the dashboard as well as the upper center console and door surfaces. Appointments include automatic climate control, cruise control, and an Acura-Bose AM/FM/cassette stereo linked to a trunk-mounted CD changer. The stainless-steel door sill plates are stamped with the car’s serial number.
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 32k miles, approximately 4k of which were added under current ownership. The instrument cluster was removed and rebuilt in August 2022 by ScienceofSpeed in Chandler, Arizona.
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 May 2009 service invoice from Source 1 Automotive in Goshen, Ohio, states that the timing belt and water pump were replaced, while the seller states that the timing belt was replaced once more in 2017. The oil pan gasket was replaced in April 2020. The air-conditioning evaporator was fitted with replacement O-rings by ScienceofSpeed of Chandler, Arizona, in August 2022, at which time it was noted that the air-conditioning compressor should be replaced.
Power is routed to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential. A photo showing transaxle serial number J4A4-1003882 is provided in the gallery, indicating that the unit falls inside the snap ring failure range. A May 2009 service invoice from Source 1 Automotive in Goshen, Ohio, indicates that the transmission case and the snap ring were replaced. The CV axle boots were replaced in April 2020, and the seller states that a fluid service was carried out in preparation for the sale.
The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in Arizona, California, Indiana, and Ohio.
