possibly the worst price per performance car ever made.
A corvette z06 costing half its price smokes it in EVERy category including handling,braking,quartermile, and 0-60.
That is fact 100 percent.
THE rich bung-hole bought his NSX only to be smoked by a z06 driven by a smart motha fuqa.
"NSX" was originally an acronym for "New Sportscar eXperimental". And yes, it was originally NS-X, hyphenated, on the pre-production prototypes.
The NSX is manufactured in Tochigi, Japan.
The air vents on the doors tilt up to direct the air flow towards the passengers. If you pull up a little bit more when they are all the way up, they "click" and lock in place.
Honda simply has better engineers than most other car companies, which is how they went from zero to moderately huge in just two decades. The Accord and Civic are the benchmarks in their respective categories. A few years after they entered Formula One racing, Honda dominated the sport. The NSX is basically the street car built by the Formula One folks.
As for the people that listed false definitions of this car, please ignore them. They do not know the capabilities of this car as they think they do, sitting on their throne. If you'd like to see more information about this car and its performance, go watch JGTC.
The height of japanese racing technology. Very fast.
A supercar in the ranks of ferarri, porche and lamborghini
man: hahah I just beat your nsx in my tuned up gas guzzling nitrous drag car!!
dude: Go cut your mullet.
One of the greatest definitions of motor engineering to date. If there was no horsepower limit in japan, the NSX could quite easily be the most powerful non-turbo V6 in the world.
NSX > V8 Penis Extensions
The thinking man's (or lady's) exotic. Great performance and driving experience.
Those of you who compare it to a Z06 should just buy the Z06, becuase you wouldn't get it, even if you drove it. Then again, maybe just buy some Z06 badges and put them on your Saturn ION, since it's all you can afford.
DUMBASS NECK: "DEM COREVETTES CAN KICK THAT JAP BEER CAN CAR'S ASS ALL OVER THE TRACK. HECK, MY DADDY HAD A 79 TRANS AM AND IT RAN 8's IN THE 1/4!"
NORMAL PERSON: "WHY IS THAT PICTURE OF YOUR FAMILY TREE JUST A STRAIGHT LINE?"
Hondas's original sports car. The NSX was introduced in 1991, and when it was introduced, it outperformed all cars in its day. 0-60 mph in 4-8 seconds, all aluminum body, transverse mid engine rear wheel drive, civilized in everyday driving... Ferrari, Porsche, Corvette, etc. all bowed down to its might.
Unfortunately, since it was introduced, it wasn't updated. Nowadays, you can find a C6 corvette which could outperform the nsx on the straights. However, the nsx is still a favorite for anyone looking for an extremely durable and well balanced machine.There will be an update soon (2007-2008), and you can bet that it will be killer.
Americans like straight line speed, but once you get into the corners, you can't beat the NSX. For a 290 HP car (280 PS in Japan), its speed of 0-60 in 4.8 seconds means that it is incredibly balanced through the corners, and exit corner speeds were greater then the cars with 400+ hp. Balance is key in racing, and in this regard, the NSX was awesome
A high-performance Japanese Sports car made by Honda that does something American cars can't do, TURN. They have amazing cornering capabilities due to their MR layout (Mid Engine Rear Wheel Drive), and do not require overkilled amounts of HP to go fast. This is due to the fact that they have near-perfect aerodynamics. Typical MODIFIED NSX's can attain 180mph with only 380HP. Combined with its responsive throttle, this car is a force to be reckoned with.
NSX Driver: I was racing that Z06 Corvette in the hills, and I killed that POS american crap.
BMW Driver: HAHA. Why?
NSX Driver: I turned.
A Japanese super car made by Honda brought out in America by Acura. In 1991 this car was a super with its unique aluminum c30a 3.0L 270hp 210lb engine. 0-60 in 5.4 seconds. years later they came out with the c32b engine 3.2L 290hp engine. 0-60 in only 4.6 seconds with its 6 speed transmission. This beast doesn't need 500hp to compete with Lamborghini and Ferrari's. With its incredible aerodynamics technology and the sleek light weight body. Even lighter 6 cylinder aluminum engine (great on gas). Take turns faster then a Porsche.
My NSX left that Lambo at the traffic light.
