1991 Acura NSX

The legendary design firm Pininfarina was commissioned by Honda, in 1984, to design the HP-X (Honda Pininfarina Experimental). It was given a mid-mounted 2-liter engine. This design later evolved into the production NSX, with 'NSX' being an acronym for 'New Sportscar eXperimental'. The Honda NSX was sold under the Acura brand name in North America and Hong Kong markets. The exotic supercar was produced between 1990 and 2005. It continued the mid-engine placement but was powered by an all-aluminum V6 which featured Honda's variable valve timing and electronic lift control called VTEC. They had an independent four-channel anti-lock brake system, titanium connecting rods to permit high engine rpm operation, and electric power steering.

The NSX was the first production car to use an all-aluminum monocoque body incorporating a revolutionary extruded aluminum alloy frame and suspension. During the sixteen years of production, just 18,685 were sold worldwide. The first NSX available to the retail public was 000063. All low numbered cars are reported to be pre-prototype cars.

The 1991 Acura NSX coupe had a base price of $62,000. The double-overhead-cam V6 engine offered 270 horsepower with the 5-speed manual transmission and 252 horsepower with the four-speed automatic.
