"The debut model of the revolutionary machine, bringing comfort to sportscars."

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.

  • 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.
