1992 ACURA NSX
Extensively Restored to MINT condition!
The Acura NSX (New Sportscar eXperimental - sold as the Acura NSX in North America and Hong Kong) is a high performance sports car that was originally produced between 1990 and 2005. It is equipped with a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout, powered by an all-aluminum V6 engine featuring Honda's Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) system.
The original performance target for the NS-X was the Ferrari 328. The NS-X was designed to exceed the performance of the Ferrari, while offering targeted reliability and a lower price point. For this reason, the 2.0L V6 of the HP-X was abandoned and replaced with a more powerful 3.2L VTEC V6 engine. The bodywork design was specifically designed after studying the 360 degree visibility inside the F-16 fighter jet cockpit.
Thematically the F-16 came into play in the exterior design as well as establishing the conceptual goals of the NSX. In the F-16 and other high performance craft such as unlimited hydroplanes, single seat race cars etc. the cockpit is located far forward on the body and in front of the power plant. This "cab-forward" layout was chosen early in the NSX's design to optimize visibility while the long tail design enhanced high speed directional stability
The NS-X was the first production car to feature an all-aluminum monocoque body, incorporating a revolutionary extruded aluminum alloy frame, and suspension. The use of aluminum in the body alone saves nearly 200 kg in weight over the steel equivalent while the aluminum suspension saves an additional 20 kg; a suspension compliance pivot helped maintain wheel alignment changes at a near zero value.
Other notable features include an independent, 4-channel anti-lock brake system,
titanium connecting rods in the engine to permit reliable high-rpm operation,
an electric power steering system,and Honda's proprietary VTEC variable valve timing system (first in the U.S.).
This 1992 NSX has completed the Extensive Restoration/Refresh Program by Daisy Auto to MINT condition! It was restored under the direction of the legendary Ben Schaeffer "The NSX Whisperer". If you are unfamiliar with Daisy Auto and the reputation of their work, visit nsxprime.com.
This is a VERY rare opportunity to own one of the most dynamic and revolutionary sports cars ever created.
After a six year complete enhancement process of an immaculate NSX with only 82K miles, this car has emerged as a pristine show-level performance vehicle. You will not find a nicer one on the market. The interior is in Museum Quality and Mechanically it is unmatched. This car finished 2nd by one point at the Japanese Car Show/Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Boston in 2011.

Acura has used the occasion of this year's SEMA show to unveil a 2013 ILX that is remarkably different from the road-going car that we are familiar with. A far distance from the rather mildly performing street car, this ILX Endurance Racer is actually prepped to race at the grueling 25 Hours of Thunderhill in Willows, California.
Wed, 10 Apr 2013 14:16:00 EST
The ILX racers (Team Honda Research has prepped two of them for the race) have actually each been constructed using two donor ILX sedans: one body-in-white chassis and one full production-spec car that donates powertrain, interior and electronic components. Overall, increasing the performance of the car was done mostly through extensive weight reduction rather than bumps in power. No figures have been given for the output of the ILX's K24Z7 engine, though we are told that a custom intake and exhaust have been fitted, as well as a racing flywheel.
A prominent LED lighting system dominates the front fascia of the ILX, along with a huge front splitter, while a massive wing speaks to the intentions of the car.
Coming off a complete redesign for 2013, the second model year the second-generation Acura RDX has received a few tweaks to its equipment packaging and a slight increase in pricing for 2014. With all models receiving a price hike of $200, the 2014 RDX will now have a base price of $34,520 (*not including $895 for destination).
Tue, 15 Jan 2013 12:35:00 EST
New for the 2014 RDX, Acura has included even more technology to the standard models, including a push-button starter, rear-view camera and an updated audio system that delivers Pandora Internet radio, SMS text messaging and Active Noise Control. Buyers will still be able to add all-wheel drive and the optional Technology Package. Scroll down for a press release breaking down more features of the 2014 RDX and complete model pricing.
Yep, it's the new MDX. And despite being totally redone, it looks exactly like we expected. That is, it's an up-sized version of the RDX crossover with fancy LED lights stolen from the RLX sedan. And while that might not sound too exciting, we have to say, it is handsome - certainly a more cohesive, refined design than the angular, beak-tastic model that's currently on sale.
Acura is calling this 2014 MDX a prototype, but that's only because it isn't 100-percent finished. Everything you see here will likely carry over to production, maybe with a couple small tweaks. Under the hood is the same 3.5-liter V6 that we know and love from the Honda group, and while we don't have power figures just yet, Acura says it will deliver more torque while improving efficiency. In redesigning the MDX, the Japanese automaker has managed to lighten and stiffen the chassis, improving driving dynamics. More interestingly, for the first time Acura will offer a front-wheel-drive version of the MDX, but don't worry, the automaker's SH-AWD all-wheel drive will be available.
Inside, the usual smattering of tech goodies will be on hand, including the next-generation AcuraLink system, satellite radio, tons of comfort amenities and every single alphabetic safety device known to man (okay, maybe not all of them).
