We’re In Love With This Tastefully Modified 1991 Acura NSX 10

There’s just something about the original NSX you can’t resist; it’s not because it was an original concept, nor because it was the fastest of the breed.

This is Sean Lee’s 1991 Acura NSX. The car isn’t factory-standard, but the modifications were selected with respect on the car’s true character as Sean wanted to have an NSX, only better.

Among the things he installed were a KW adjustable coilover suspension, a sportier exhaust and a set of super sticky Nitto tires mounted on Advan wheels to make his JDM sports car a more thrilling device on his favorite canyon roads.

Power remains at stock levels, meaning a 3.0-liter V6 with around 270hp that’s paired to a five-speed manual transmission. By today’s standards, the horsepower doesn’t sound so impressive, but back then the NSX had all the punch it needed to show exotics how it’s done.

You can check out the beautifully moded NSX in the Petrolicious video that follows after the break.

There may be a greater range of supercars on the market than ever before, but that doesn’t mean the allure of exotics has faded in recent times. In fact, the complete opposite is true.

As supercar owners continually try to out-do one another, the world of aftermarket tuning has exploded, particularly for vehicles that cost as much as a house. Of all the tuners, few are better known for wild creations than Liberty Walk.

Eager to see how the public reacts to an Acura NSX outfitted with a Liberty Walk widebody kit and towering rear wing, the Japanese tuner took to the streets of Las Vegas to capture the expressions of locals and visitors in the party city.

In standard guise, the new NSX is quite a head-turner. However, this Liberty Walk example takes things to entirely new extremes.

Sadly, it seems evident that driveability has been sacrificed in favor of aesthetics.

Don’t Be Fooled By Low Sales, The 2018 Acura NSX Is A Masterpiece 10

Although the Acura NSX is a technological marvel and essentially a mini-Porsche 918 Spyder, sales of the Japanese supercar haven’t been as strong as the brand would have hoped.

The car’s $156,600 starting price is certainly a key contributor to the meager sales, though one shouldn’t be fooled into thinking the NSX isn’t anything but remarkable, despite being far less common than rivals like the McLaren 570S and Porsche 911 Turbo.

In a bid to show that the NSX is much more than its sales figures may suggest, Redline Reviews jumped behind the wheel of a stunning blue example to explore every tiny detail of the car in a comprehensive 32-minute review.

The key factor distinguishing the NSX from all of its rivals is its powertrain. It is the only car in its segment with a hybrid powertrain, consisting of a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 and three electric motors. It also features a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission.
