The Acura New Sportscar eXperiment (NSX) was launched in 1991 and shocked the world because no one was expecting a car like this from Honda/Acura. The NSX consisted of an all-aluminium body, chassis, and suspension. Equipped with a naturally inspired 3.0L V6 that can generate 216 kW (290 bhp) and 304 N·m (224 ft·lbf) of torque. This mid-engine, rear-wheel driver car also introduced Honda's famous VTEC technology. After 15 years, Honda ended production of the NSX in 2005.
5 Things You Didn't Know About the NSX
1. First production car with all-aluminum body, chassis, and suspension
2. First production car with titanium connecting rods
3. Final chassis tune signed off by Ayrton Senna
4. Most expensive Japanese car in history at launch
5. Nearly half all NSXs built sold in the U.S. (8854 to June 2005)
There were rumors that Honda's High-Performance Sports Concept (HSC) was to replace the NSX, however those rumors have died down. I like the look of the HSC, it looks like something that would come from an Italian car company, not Honda. All I can say is, the HSC look beats out the ASC look any day of the week!
