This description is taken from the original Gran Turismo:
The NSX is the world's first aluminum production car. Every major component is constructed of aluminum or light weight, which provides an outstanding power-to-weight ratio and excellent handling. Like the chassis, the suspension is made entirely of aluminum. It features double wishbone suspension, front and rear, with special gas-pressurized Honda Progressive Valve-equipped shock absorbers. Powering the NSX is a 3.0-liter, DOHC, 24-valve V6 engine that produces 270 BHP. This engine features a unique Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) system, which varies the lift and duration of each cylinder's four valves to optimize both low-end torque and high rpm performance. The NSX can achieve a track-tested top speed in excess of 165 mph, acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 5.03 seconds, and run the 1/4 mile in under 14.0 seconds. The NSX is designed to represent an entirely new definition of the exotic sports car.
This car can be bought at the Honda/Acura Used Cars dealership for around 62,000 Credits. It is only available in the NTSC-U version of the game.
This car can be bought at the Acura dealership for 95,000 Credits. It is only available in the NTSC-U version of the game.

- In the first two Gran Turismo games, the NSX '93 was simply a rebadge of the Honda NSX Type R '92, evident by the red Honda badge in the front. This is also why this car can enter the Type-R Meeting in GT2.
- Although this car was race modifiable in the original Gran Turismo, this car can't be race modified in Gran Turismo 2. However, the race modified version of this car is still present in the game files and can be accessed with cheat devices, meaning that racing modifications were originally intended to be available for this car.
- The unused racing modification in GT2 is based on the Acura version of Honda NSX-R LM GT2 '95, used in American version of GT1, except in the early Japanese release of the game, where the other racing modifications used for NA1 NSX models (based on Nakajima Racing entry that failed to pre-qualify at 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans, but took part at Suzuka 1000km that year) is used instead.
- The color name "Shallot Green Pearl" is a mistranslation; the color name should be "Charlotte Green Pearl", which was used for the Honda NSX Type R '92 in Gran Turismo Sport.
- This occurs due to transliteration process from katakana: the color name is "シャーロットグリーンパール" in Japanese.
