1991 - 2005 Acura NSX

Posted on by 31

The Acura NSX supercar exemplifies the precision crafted performance that lies at the heart of every Acura vehicle. Devel Devel oped out of years of racing experience, the NSX sets the benchmark for Acura technology, combining world-class performance and styling with exceptional drivability and refinement.


The Acura NSX offers two distinct, mid-ship mounted powertrains. The first is a lightweight, all-aluminum 3.2 liter, DOHC, 24-valve, 90-degree V-6 engine coupled with a 6-speed, close-ratio manual transmission producing 290 horsepower and 224 lb-ft of torque. The second is a 3.0 liter DOHC, 24-valve V-6 engine with a 4-speed Sequential SportShift automatic transmission that generates 252 horsepower and 210 lb.-ft. of torque.

Both Acura NSX engines are equipped with Acura’s patented VTEC (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control), a Variable Volume Induction System, direct ignition and a computerized Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system pioneered in Formula One racing. The NSX engine also features titanium connecting rods, which are stronger and lighter than comparable steel connecting rods.


To complement these innovative powertrains, the Acura NSX chassis features an all-aluminum unit body construction that is 40 percent lighter, yet has the rigidity of a steel structure. The 4-wheel independent double-wishbone suspension features aluminum-alloy control arms and hub carriers that minimize unsprung weight and provide optimum handling. The suspension also features aluminum subframes for the front and rear suspension to further reduce weight. Forged-aluminum alloy wheels reduce unsprung weight while super high performance tires - 215/40 R17 in front and 255/40 R17 in the rear - provide maximum traction and handling.

The NSX’s braking system features large-diameter, ventilated four-wheel discs and an advanced 4-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) for confident braking. A sophisticated Traction Control System (TCS) helps limit wheel-spin and enhances control.


The 2005 Acura NSX features a removable roof panel for open-air driving. A sculpted, wedge-shaped body and forward canopy design clearly communicate the car’s high performance personality. Additional features include a body integrated rear spoiler and airfoil, power operated sideview mirrors and Xenon High-Intensity Discharge projector-beam headlights. The NSX comes in seven exterior colors, which can be ordered with a matching or complementary interior color.


Inside, the hand-stitched, leather-trimmed interior of the NSX is designed to evoke the image of a jet fighter cockpit, providing excellent visibility, easy-to-read instrumentation and supportive, power operated seats. For 2005, the NSX receives a redesigned meter panel surround, a new shifter knob and a keyless entry system. As with all Acura models, the NSX comes with a long list of standard equipment and comfort and convenience features including an Automatic Climate Control System, power windows and door locks, cruise control and a theft deterrent system with electronic immobilizer. For 2005, the premium Acura/Bose Music System has been enhanced with a trunk-mounted 6-Disc CD changer.


I agree with pdaix. EVO’s give supercar performance without making a hole in your pocket.
Monk O’Modena, whats the use of having a supercar if can’t even drive properly, appreciating it’s beauty. Most people who buy those are self obsessed dweebs like you who want to feel exquisite.

I would love to see your German supercars hold a candle to a Japanese tuned car or ( I can’t believe Iam saying this) modifed muscle cars.

And if you really want to race against a Japanese supercar, why don’t you try the GT-R.

ferrari are bringing out a f70 with the fxx engine 850bhp and well over 230 and its street legal

the price is £24625

super cars are great

how much is the new audi tt

hey got some lambos(6) and i mean lamborghinis is the best car to drive gallardo is cheap and fast
like the new lp 640

jap tuners and us muscles look pathetic even if they are tuned heavily; they’re no engineering feat, they are cheap pornographies. supercars on the other hand, are beautiful. moreover, its not about owning supercars, its about appreciating beauty. we cant own a lot of beautiful stuffs in this world, but that doesnt mean we should stop admiring them.

what is the actual top speed of the tuned voxel vectra?

how much is a saleen s7 twin turbow?

Why would anyone waste the hard earned money on a supercar. I mean where exept for Germany can you actually go as fast as the ars were meant to go. I say just invest in an old muscle car and restore it. Its cheaper and has more tourque then any supercar can hope to have

Who needs a supercar when a good old mitsubishi evo can giv eyou all the thrill you ever asked for..
Ahh for the chicks.. it does nto work as good as your lambo...
Keep it real homies smiley
