1992 Acura Nsx - Extensively Restored To Mint Condition! on 2040-cars
Los Angeles, California, United States
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.

For the first time since 1998, J.D. Power and Associates says its data shows that the average number of problems per 100 cars has increased. The finding is the result of the firm's much-touted annual Vehicle Dependability Study, which charts incidents of problems in new vehicle purchases over three years from 41,000 respondents.
Looking at first-owner cars from the 2011 model year, the study found an average of 133 problems per 100 cars (PP100, for short), up 6 percent from 126 PP100 in last year's study, which covered 2010 model-year vehicles. Disturbingly, the bulk of the increase is being attributed to engine and transmission problems, with a 6 PP100 boost.
Interestingly, JDP notes that "the decline in quality is particularly acute for vehicles with four-cylinder engines, where problem levels increase by nearly 10 PP100." Its findings also noticed that large diesel engines also tended to be more problematic than most five- and six-cylinder engines.
The U.S. News Best Cars for the Money Awards picks winners by looking at the average transaction price, five-year total cost of ownership, the regard a car has from the automotive press, reliability figures from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The result, according to the magazine, is "the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value."
Ford nabbed six of the 21 categories that received awards this year, the Focus, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Taurus, Escape and Edge getting trophies. Toyota and its Lexus and Scion sub-brands took another five, the Tacoma and Tundra owning the two categories given to pickup trucks. The other ten awards were split between Honda with three, Buick with two, and one each for Subaru, BMW, Hyundai, Chevrolet and Mazda.
Follow the link to see all the winners and read about why they were chosen.
Honda has announced a recall over a possible rollaway risk that affects 204,169 crossover and minivan models. The specific vehicles in question are the 2012-13 Honda CR-V and Odyssey, as well as the 2013 Acura RDX.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, "the brake-shift interlock blocking mechanism may become slow and allow the gear selector to be moved from the Park position without pressing the brake pedal." In other words, these vehicles could unintentionally roll away.
NHTSA states that this scenario may only happen during sub-freezing temperatures, but notes that this means the vehicles fail to conform with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 114: Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention. Honda will notify owners of the problem, and dealerships will install an updated interlocking mechanism free of charge.
