Here’s Why the Original Acura NSX Is Shooting Up in Value

The original Acura NSX is shooting up in value -- and today I'm reviewing an early NSX to show you why it's getting so desirable. First I'll show you around this 1994 NSX, and I'll show you all of its quirks and features. Then I'll drive the original Honda NSX to show you what makes it such a joy on the road.

    I think the Old Nsx will never go to high prices such as Supra, and its better than Supra in Handling and driving experience, for me its the best Japonese car ever built, the second is Supra A80 and after the Gtr in my opinion.

    In comparison with todays values, do you think the S2k is a better option since they are relatively cheaper and have a lot more to boom in value when compared to teh already inflated prices of the NSX?

    The best ' spec ' for NSX is : 6 speed manual , targa roof , 3.2 litre motor and pop up headlight .

  12. lotus esprit

    lotus espritיום לפני

    Pop up headlights manual 3.0 or 3.2 L are the best IMO ...the targa as issues in handling, the structural rigidity is horrible and water problems inside because of the targa top

    270HP. The 3.0L NSX engine made 270hp when mated to a manual. The automatic made 252. The 1997+ 3.2L bumped power to 290hp, and the auto was still limited to 252hp and 3.0L.

    When these first came out, they were supposed to sell in the 30K range, and I really wanted to buy one. Unfortunately, the dealers added extreme mark-ups so there was no way I could afford one. That put me off the Acura brand forever.



    doug temuro= look at this spare tire, look at this key, look at this engine, look at this door handle. Boring! me, look at those titanium piston rods, look at that tachometer that revs at 8000 rpms. look at that double wishbone suspension. Look at that vtec system that gives an extra boost of power when you reach 5000 rpms.

    The 90s Honda thing is really something, my first car is a Honda del Sol 1.6 esi. It is of course not comparable to a NSX but it is still the most exciting car I have driven. I have not driven that many cars yet but all of them except the Honda just felt unresponsive and boring, the transmission feels soft and just not enjoyable the same with the body roll. The Honda on the other hand does not have these problemes with its snappy shifting and very low and kind of hard suspension. It is also reliable and the little V-tec at the end of the rpms make it sound nice and gives it a little sporty feel. The targa top you can put in the surprisingly big trunk and the rearwindow you can lower are also a nice touch. I never saw Honda as a car brand I really like but since that 26 year old car of mine showed me how enjoyable driving can be I see that 90s Hondas really have something to them.

    6:34 I don’t think Honda was trying to warn someone who’s breaking into the car that there’s a security system, that’s why there’s not one on the passengers side. The lights only there to tell the driver. Thats why they just put it on the outside cause you’d never notice what it said if it was on the inside because you lock your car when you are outside of it.

Conventional medicine has FAILED to solve HAIR LOSS because it has focused only on blocking DHT. I cured my HAIR LOSS with a NEW method described at which explains why the MAIN cause of HAIRLOSS is not DHT but a reduction in the BLOOD FLOW to the scalp due to a tight lower scalp layer called the GALEA and shows how to cure hair loss with no drugs, no lotions and no surgery. Get the e-book. It costs only 29.95 and this REALLY, REALLY WORKS
