The Acura NSX, known outside of North America and Hong Kong as the Honda NSX, remained in production between 1990 and 2005. The Japanese automaker Honda, manufactured this sports car with some impressive features such as the all-aluminum body and chassis, a V6 engine featuring Honda’s VTEC system, and a rear-wheel dive layout. The lighter weight body allowed the NSX to, for a time, sport the highest per-litre specific output of any road worthy V6 vehicle in the world. Most drivers are unaware that NSX is an acronym for “New Sportscar eXperimental” which was pertinent in its showcase at the Tokyo Motor Show and Chicago Auto Shows in 1989. Rumor has it that the ‘X’ originated as the unknown codename that was used during the development phase.

The NSX was received as a futuristic car of the 1990s, which resulted from its ‘ahead of the time’ design. The vehicle exceptionally represented Honda’s ability to utilize racing technologies, not to mention the specific detail that went into hand-selecting the staff that actually assembled the final automobiles. The hand-selected staff were required to have each had at least 10 years of manufacturing experience and an ability to demonstrate their passion and desires to produce top notch vehicles. This dedication paid off for Acura when the Australian magazine Wheels named the NSX Car of the Year in 1991. The NSX still bears a cult following of car enthusiasts who describe the NSX as a ‘supercar’ with regards specifically to its handling, styling and body type. These enthusiasts can revel in the car’s ability in films such as Pulp Fiction, television episodes such as Seinfeld, and videogames such as Gran Turismo. Oracle CEO, Larry Ellison, is said to give the NSX as a gift to a few lucky recipients each year. Some even argue that the NSX forced ‘supercar’ companies such as Ferrari to improve their engineering.
