The History of the Acura NSX: A Japanese Racecar
The Acura NSX was first produced in 1990. The two-seat coupe was inspired by the performance of a racing car, and the design of an F-16 fighter jet cockpit. The original Acura NSX model had an all-aluminum body, 3.0-liter V6 engine, and a five-speed manual transmission. The Acura NSX evolved to offer a four-speed automatic transmission in 1994. In 1995, it moved from a coupe to a Targa top. A more powerful 3.2-liter V6 engine was added in 1997. Production ended in 2005.
Honda debuted the next-generation in 2016. The new 2017 NSX had a powerful engine, hybrid technology, a unique cockpit, and a spaceship-like exterior. Honda builds the Acura NSX at its
Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio. Each NSX is hand-crafted to customer preference. Customers can visit the facility to see their car built.
