It is no secret that certain Japanese automotive offerings have caused many collectors to wake up and take notice.  Considered by many to be the first true supercar/exotic from Japan, the Acura NSX has been coveted from its introduction nearly 20-years ago.  They were also extremely easy to use on a daily basis and, as a result, finding original preservation class examples has become increasingly difficult.  In fact, to find a 1-owner example that hasn’t been modified is very unusual for these cars.  288 black on black examples out of 1,270 total cars were built for our market in 1992 model year.

This example was built in August of 1991 and sold new on July 30th, 1992 by Acura of Mission Viejo, California.  The current owner purchased it new.  For the first 17-years, the car lived in the owner’s Orange County garage.  Then, in 2009, he retired to the Palm Springs area and kept the car in a climate-controlled garage there.  Due to age and health issues, he didn’t drive it very often.  Unfortunately, the owner passed away in June of this year and the family has asked us to help find a new owner.  Although he didn’t drive the car much, he did service it at his local dealer.  Highlights include:

  • Oil changes
  • Brake fluid flushes
  • Spark plugs
  • O2 sensor
  • Driver window regulator
  • Repair Bose amplifier

Upon receipt of this NSX, we decided to have South Coast Acura (our local Acura dealer) do a full inspection and major service to make sure everything was in proper working condition.  This particular dealer has several on-staff mechanics who are experts with these models and are very well respected among the enthusiast community.  Services performed include:

  • Timing belt service
  • Inspect tensioners and idlers
  • Water pump
  • All belts
  • Thermostat
  • Valve adjustment
  • Throttle body, air intake, and plenum service/cleaning
  • Air filter
  • Clean cabin filter/mesh
  • Oil service
  • Spark plugs
  • Brake fluid flush
  • Coolant system flush
  • Transmission oil service/flush
  • New trunk lid shocks
  • Repair clock

Finally, they performed a complete top to bottom inspection and found this example to be in outstanding condition with no signs of damage, wear, or abuse.  This inspection/service was nearly $10,000.  It was completed on September 5th, 2018.

This NSX is in excellent condition and looks exactly how you would expect a low-mile preservation grade example to look.  The paint is near perfect condition with hardly any signs of use.  The metal panels are all original and verified with a paint meter (see pics).  There is a very light superficial scratch almost on the underside of the driver side rocker and only visible if laying on the ground (see pic).  The original wheels (chromed at the dealer when new) have minimal signs of age and no curb rashes.  They are wearing near full tread Yokohama tires that are 10-years old but have no cracks.  The brake pads have over 75% life remaining.  All the glass is original, including the windshield.  There are no cracks or chips.  The exterior rubber and trim show no signs of age.  The gaps as well as fit/finish are perfect.

The interior looks equally as nice and fresh.  There are hardly any signs of use.  The supple leather seats show no cracks or tears.  The carpet, headliner, and door panels look new.  There are no cracks on the dash.  All the gauges work properly.  The A/C blows cold and the clock works.  The radio does not power up.  All the interior and exterior lights work.  The whole interior still retains that “new-car” smell.

The engine bay, front trunk, and chassis all look brand new.

From a driving perspective, everything still feels extremely tight.  It starts easily on the first try with no smoke.  The throttle response is immediate and it easily pulls strong through all the gears.  The transmission shifts smoothly with no grinding or slipping.  The brakes have a nice initial bite with no fading or pulling.  The steering box is one of the highlights of this car.  Turn in is so precise it’s almost telepathic.  It inspires confidence and gives the driver a wonderful connection to the road surface.  This example would easily be home at any premier concours event or simply enjoying for fun weekend touring.

California registration is paid to July of 2019 and it just passed California’s strict smog test.

This NSX comes with the original spare tire, tool kit, jack, owner’s manual, extra keys, original Acura sales brochures, wheel locks, orig. touch up paint, front license plate bracket, branded hats/t-shirt, and factory car cover.**Note: VIN and other numbers withheld to protect against fraud.  All numbers including VIN, Engine, and color will be provided to serious buyers.
