1991 Acura Nsx Clean Black 5 Speed Ultimate Supercar on 2040-cars
San Diego, California, United States
Collector 1991 Acura NSX Black/Black 5 Speed. No accidents or damage ever. Clean/clear title history. Original paint and interior, both in fantastic condition. Great original condition cosmetically. Original paint and interior, in great shape. No accidents or issues ever. The motor was fully refreshed with all gaskets, hoses, upgraded cooling system with superior hoses and cores. All fluids were changed. Timing belt was done. Head was machined. It was fully resealed and that other work completed at 154k miles less than 2 years ago and it is an ultra reliable driver. Currently it has 161k. Original starter rebuilt a few months ago.
Upgraded full Tein Coil Over Suspension ($2200). Enkei Racing Wheels (NSX-R have Enkei). Air intake ($300). Comptech full cat back-exhaust with test pipes ($1200). Alpine audio system. Momo steering wheel with original included ($500). Wings west side skirts. Rebuilt A/C. It is sorted and ready to drive. Currently has the stock front lip. Original engine cover included. New tires. Oil changed with mobile one full synthetic. Any good NSX mechanic knows (even with low mileage) these need to have the motors resealed. Otherwise they develop leaks and many little issues. This was done as preventative maintenance and just the motor resealing was $5000.
I am ONLY letting my pride and joy go because I have 3 sons and this only has 2 seats. If I could afford 2 very nice cars I would keep this, but I can only afford one and I have a one car garage. This has always been stored, never driven in rain, and the body looks fantastic. The original paint was a 23 step process so to have the original finish is very desirable. I am looking to get a nice 60's muscle car like a 69 Camaro or 70-74 Challenger/Cuda so I need to let this go to buy one of those. Clean/clear California title in hand. Ready to drive anywhere today. Please ask any questions you have and they will be answered quickly and honestly.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has revealed its annual list of Top Safety Picks, an award that highlights automobiles it says offer "superior crash protection." A new and still more significant award, the Top Safety Pick+ honor, is given to those vehicles that earn good ratings for occupant protection in four out of five areas of measure. And while some 117 vehicles were given the TSP seal of approval for 2013, just 13 passed muster for TSP+.

To be fair, IIHS only evaluated 29 vehicles with its new testing procedures for TSP+ (we'd expect that the number of qualified cars will rise substantially for 2014). Luxury and Near Luxury midsize cars were the first groups evaluated, followed by midsizers in the Moderately Priced Cars category - unsurprisingly, it's only midsize cars that you'll find among the class this year.
Only two luxury sedans made the list of 13 for 2013: the Acura TL and Volvo S60. The other 11 cars on the list included entries from domestic, Japanese and German car makers: Dodge Avenger, Chrysler 200, Ford Fusion, Honda Accord (sedan and coupe), Kia Optima (but not its close kin, the Hyundai Sonata, strangely), Nissan Altima, Subaru Legacy and Outback, Suzuki Kizashi and the Volkswagen Passat all made the grade.
We often mock Toyota for building boring, soulless cars, but a new study by Consumer Reports suggests that regardless of whether that's true, the company has some of the best used cars on the market. In its report on used cars from 2004-2013, the Japanese automaker had 11 vehicles among its brands on the list - more than any other automaker.

CR breaks the list down by cost and vehicle size, and Toyota has at least one entry at every price point and in nearly every segment. To score a recommendation, a vehicle had to perform well in the magazine's initial tests and score above-average reliability results. It also tried to only suggest cars with electronic stability control. Of the 28 recommended vehicles, Honda/Acura had the second most mentions at six, and Ford, Hyundai and Subaru managed two each.
The Detroit brands also made it to the list, but not in a positive way. Consumer Reports compiled a list of 22 vehicles it wouldn't recommend because "they have multiple years of much-worse-than-average overall reliability." General Motors had the most unrecommended models on the list at six, but Chrysler and Ford weren't far behind, with five cars each from their brands not making the grade. The full list of recommendations is available on CR's website.
Automakers make halo cars to drum up excitement and show off what they can do, but there's more to it than that. Advanced platforms allow a company's engineers to experiment with all sorts of technologies. And in the case of the upcoming new Acura NSX, that includes new paint processes.
Speaking with Autoline in this video interview, Honda's North American Senior VP Jon Minto talked about an innovative zirconium e-coat which it's applying to the new NSX. Unlike some experimental paints developed for Formula One, however, this coating is not designed to minimize drag or enhance cooling: it's designed to be more environmentally friendly.
It's one of a few measures which Honda is implementing on the NSX before expanding it to more accessible models, along with another process that uses fewer coats to reduce energy consumption by 40 percent. Watch the interview with Autoline host John McElroy right here.
