"Honda's ultimate sports car is tuned by Gran Turismo."
This is an original model created by "Gran Turismo" based on the NSX (1991).
The following is the description of the base model.
Until Honda introduced the Acura NSX, mid-engine sports cars, while providing an ideal degree of balance and weight distribution, were generally not the most comfortable place to be for both driver and passenger. The emphasis on these cars was usually on all-out performance, not luxury. But the NSX was different; it was a world-class performance machine that also incorporated a remarkably high level of ergonomic comfort, It was truly an exotic car that provided enthusiasts the best of all worlds.
A high-revving, normally aspirated 3.0-liter DOHC V6 was located just aft of the passenger compartment for superior handling balance. This powerplant was the first to incorporated VTEC, the company's revolutionary variable valve-timing technology that was developed from Formula 1 technology. The NSX's aluminum-block V6 produced 276 HP and 216.9 ft-lb, sending the power to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox (a 6-speed manual would come later).
The chassis was another revolutionary breakthrough for a production car as it was the first road car to feature an all-aluminum monocoque chassis. Sturdy and light, this gave the 1,365 kg NSX incredible agility.
The NSX's suspension consisted of a double wishbone setup at all four corners with a new type of bushing called a "compliance pivot" incorporated into the front suspension that maximized ride comfort and offered a higher degree of feedback, making the NSX's on-road responsiveness akin to the day's best race cars.
By performing racing modifications on an Acura NSX '91, the player can get this car. In order to get this car, the player must have 285,000 Credits, 80,000 are for purchasing the base car, and 205,000 are for performing the racing modifications in GT Auto.
Now available as a separate car, this car can be purchased for 205,000 Credits. It is a detailed car.
- Quite unusual for an Acura vehicle, in GT5, a Honda badge appears on the front bumper of the car. That badge was removed in GT6, simply for the fact that this car is not a Honda vehicle.
- The body of this car bears a very strong resemblance to the Acura NSX-R LM GT2 '95, a car that only appeared in the international versions of the original Gran Turismo. Also, the Castrol logos on the sides are further proof of the resemblance, being in the same position seen on the NSX-R LM GT2.
