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.

Details of the first episode of The Grand Tour’s second season have been announced and it’s the one we’ve all been waiting to see.

Dubbed Past, Present or Future, the episode will see Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May driving the Lamborghini Aventador S, Rimac Concept_One, and Lamborghini Aventador S through the stunning roads of Switzerland.

As we all know, Richard Hammond was badly injured during the filming of this episode after crashing the Concept_One at a hillclimb event. The episode will include footage of the incident but it could be limited as the onboard cameras were destroyed in the crash and ensuing fire.

The episode will also debut the new Celebrity Face Off segment. It will see former The Voice UK judge Ricky Wilson going up against David Hasselhoff.

The episode will drop on November 8 on Amazon Prime.

Liberty Walk Acura NSX Is A Hit With Pedestrians In Las Vegas 6

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.

Car Design Student Thinks Tesla Copied Acura’s NSX, What Do You Say? 23

Posted by Brad Anderson in Acura NSX, Honda / Acura NSX, Tesla, Tesla Roadster, Visual Comparison on 11 23rd, 2017


Now more than ever, it seems as though car enthusiasts are continually claiming the designs of new vehicles copy the styling of existing vehicles.

For example, many online have indicated that the front of the new Aston Martin Vantage looks just like a slightly more aggressive Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Unquestionably the most head-turning new car released in the past week is the Tesla Roadster and it too has failed to escape comparisons with other cars. More specifically, a car design student named Eriquin G. emailed us asserting that the design of the Roadster closely mimics that of the Honda NSX.

The designer points out a number of similarities between the duo. For starters, both the Roadster show car and the NSX utilize similar wheels, although the Tesla does have a few more spokes. Elsewhere, we can see a similar body line just after the front wheel arch, reaching back along the doors. The rear side windows of the duo also bear some resemblance to each other.

Looking from above, the curiosities continue. Both the Roadster and NSX feature hoods with tapered lines stretching down towards the front bumper. The shape of the rear quarter panels is also quite similar, although the Tesla is slightly more curvaceous and uses fewer straight lines than the NSX.

In this writer’s opinion, the two do look quite similar but not to a worrying extent and certainly nowhere near the blatant rip-offs that have emerged from China in recent years.

Let us know what you think in the comments below. Do you think Tesla copied the NSX, another production car or is it an original design that looks like no other on the road?

Driving The Honda NSX, Toyota Supra And Mazda RX-7 Back-To-Back 11

Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, many of Japan’s leading automakers built world-beating sports cars that were exceptionally fast, bewilderingly agile and in many ways, ahead of their European and American rivals.

Of all the iconic Japanese sports cars of the time, the first-generation Honda NSX, FD Mazda RX-7 and A80 Toyota Supra are among the most beloved. One fortunate YouTuber had the chance to jump behind the wheel of all three.

Despite all coming from Japan at roughly the same time, the Supra, NSX and RX-7 are all quite different from each other. Whereas the Supra is a straight-line warrior, the RX-7 is a more nimble and agile sports car powered by a high-revving rotary engine. By comparison, the NSX is the most exotic of the three, the only one that’s naturally-aspirated and the only one with its engine mounted behind passenger compartment.

If money wasn’t an issue and you could only buy one of the three, which would you choose?

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.

A Honda NSX Was Left For Dead In A Russian Forest! 3

Of all the cars you could find abandoned in a forest, an original NSX isn’t going to be one of them unless you happen to live near St. Petersburg, Russia.

The car was apparently left for many years in this forest as it was found covered with moss and mold. Why would someone ditch a rare sportscar like this remains a mystery but the good news is that the poor NSX has already been bought from its previous owner and extracted to a safer environment. It has no engine according to Xander1 who shared the story on Russian Drive2.

The specific NSX was offered for sale about seven or eight years ago for less than a million rubles (about $17k) but that’s where the story ends as there’s no information to what happened to it later.

NSXs were never a common sight, especially in Russia where it’s believed that there are less than twenty examples in the specific region.

The new owner gave the 1992 NSX a good wash to remove all the nasty forest-related stuff and then parked it in a garage in St. Petersburg. Whether he’ll restore it back to its former glory or sell it to someone who will, it remains to be seen but we sincerely hope to see it proudly moving under its own power and staying away from forests.

Have Yourself A Barely Used Formula Red 1993 Acura NSX 2

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Acura, Acura NSX, auction, Classics, Galleries, Honda / Acura NSX, used cars on 11 2nd, 2017


This low-mileage black on red 1993 Acura NSX has been driven just 6,037 miles (9,715 km) and could be all yours if you can come up with the winning bid.

With seven days left to bid on Bring A Trailer, the highest anybody has gone is $35,0000, which goes to show how valuable this car still is, especially one that appears to be in extremely good condition.

Powered comes from a 3.0-liter VTEC V6 engine, which works in collaboration with a 5-speed manual transmission, something driving enthusiasts can’t get enough of.

Standard features include 4-wheel ventilated disc brakes, torque control differential, ABS, automatic climate control, cruise control, variable intermittent wipers, courtesy lights, a BOSE 4-speaker audio system, leather-trimmed seats/door panels/steering wheel, 4-way power seats, side window defoggers and quite a few more.

As for mods, there’s the tinted windows, Zanardi floor mats, carbon fiber interior trim and that’s pretty much it. The car is otherwise stock.

Fair warning, the leather inside does have some wear on it, but overall, the cabin seems very clean and well-maintained. Somebody’s definitely going to enjoy owning this car, especially the driving part.
