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.

Developing a new vehicle is not without its complications, we're sure, but usually things follow a fairly predictable progression: you develop a prototype, you test it, test it and test it again, then you put it into production. What you don't expect is that your prototype will burn to the ground, but that's what famously happened to the NSX which Honda engineers were testing a few months ago.

Fortunately, the Acura NSX prototype is back on track, both literally and figuratively, as you can see from this latest batch of spy shots snapped at the Nürburgring. This camouflaged prototype looks pretty much the same as the last one, only, you know... less crispy. Which is to say, it looks pretty much ready to hit showrooms.
The naysayers may point out that Honda chose colder and damper weather to put the NSX back into testing - thereby mitigating the risk of another fire - but we're sure the Japanese automaker has been working hard to fix the flammability issues, whatever may have caused them, over the past few months. At least, we hope they have.
With the Shanghai Motor Show coming up later this month, Honda has released a couple of teaser sketches for two concept vehicles that will be making global debuts. Aside from the renderings, there is no information about either the Honda or Acura concept vehicles, but we can tell that both are some sort of utility vehicle, be they of crossover or people-mover variety.

The text for both images indicates that both concepts show future products that will be launched in China, but there is no mention as to what other markets the automaker has planned for these vehicles. In addition to these two concepts, the NSX Concept and 2014 RLX from Acura will make their Chinese debuts, and Honda says it "will display models substantially identical to the mass-production version of the Concept C and Concept S." The Concept C is will be a "middle-class" sedan built for China, and the Concept S, an MPV that will primarily serve China as well.
What Is, What Could Have Been, And What May Yet Be
History is largely unkind to losers. That's true in the world of politics and sports, and it follows on with a few caveats in the realm of automobiles.
In terms of cars, historic losers tend to be remembered in one of two broad ways. Every once in a while, unsuccessful or oddball models actually make reputational gains after some time away from the new-car marketplace. I consider the Saab 9-2X one of the recent poster children for this group; a car that moved like molasses on dealer lots in the mid-2000s but has morphed into a sort of hard-to-find, used gem in recent years. More often, though, that which was unloved when new remains unloved with tens or hundreds of thousands of miles on the odometer. Pontiac's seriously misunderstood Aztek has king status here (despite the wailings of oddball fan clubs across the nation), so much so that invoking "Aztek" as a pejorative stopped being pithy about a dozen years ago.
