The 2004 Acura NSX. You enter the turn. You feel the grip of the seat. You're shrouded in sleek aluminum, watching the road unfold from inside a glass canopy. A pilot among drivers. The car obeys, amazingly lean and nimble. The tires hold firm. You rev the engine toward 8000 rpm and smile because you know: There's only one place you could possibly be.
The NSX started out as an ideal. A radical reshaping of the exotic production car, driven by the passion of born drivers who happened to be fine engineers as well. Its remarkable staying power comes from the timeless allure of a firmly held ideal. Of course, it helps that the NSX is also a phenomenal performance car that offers drivers luxury-car comfort in city traffic.
The NSX surpassed the original vision of its creators and continues to shine as an example of exhilarating race-car grade performance you can enjoy from a comfortable yet enthusiast-friendly interior. The NSX leverages its light weight and the 290-hp alter ego of its torque-rich engine to reach a high-water mark in production-car performance.
Accomplishing a heartwarming feat like the NSX takes heartless discipline. It means questioning familiar things others wouldn't think of parting with. Real change is harsh. From the outset, waste was trimmed everywhere in the NSX-from the frame members to the suspension arms to the connecting rods-to achieve leaner, meaner functionality.
The precision of the advanced components in the NSX is a constant inspiration to the craftsmen who put each car together by hand. The car itself promotes a culture of reverence for the expression of engineering ideals. As a result, the NSX is as much a showcase for fit and finish as it is for speed and agility.
The deeply sculpted bucket seats of the NSX position the driver close to the center of gravity, poised to respond to the road with a snap downshift and a nudge of the steering wheel. They also come hand-fitted with glove-soft leather, and power-adjust four ways. A perfect example of how the NSX places you at the outer extremes of automotive performance, while simultaneously elevating your comfort level.
