The original Acura NSX is shooting up in value -- and today I'm reviewing an early NSX to show you why it's getting so desirable. First I'll show you around this 1994 NSX, and I'll show you all of its quirks and features. Then I'll drive the original Honda NSX to show you what makes it such a joy on the road.

  • Ayrton senna lives on in each and every one of us Honda enthusiast. When we take it to the rev limiter, smash the gear change , double clutch , heal and toe , rev matching , he smiles down knowing he helped inspire us to become the racers we dreamt of becoming.

  • "0-60 MPH in a a high 5 seconds and it gets a 4 out of 10..." what would be considered a 9 out of 10? 0-60 in 2 milliseconds?

  • I dunno if that's quite the "worst" cupholder award. I think that goes specifically to the 1999-2000 Miata which also had them under the console lid. However, the lid opened up toward the driver so the passenger had to reach up and over the lid to grab the drink.

  • The 3.0 as 276 hp manual transmission and the 250hp in the auto. I like the car, but i hate Rhd cars its horrible and dangerous for overtaking. But this car deserve to be on the 100k prices in the couple of years, maybe they will. In my opinion the design of this car is way better than the new one and ones with the pop up lights are my favourites, better than the 348 as well and reliable.

  • I can see why this car shot up in value and continues to do so but imo, the lucky owners out there asking 6 figures for a car from the 90s is ridiculous. Same deal with the MK4 Supra and RX7. $120,000 and the car has 130,000 miles for example is absurd especially because with that kind of money I can get a fully loaded C8 Corvette, a new generation NSX, or even an Audi R8. Don't get me wrong, these JDM icons are legendary but again, 6 figures and your car has 100,000-300,000 miles is ridiculous.

  • Not 250hp (it was only for automatic gearbox), 274cv, 280cv and 290cv (cv are close to hp). The cockpit inspiration was for the black and glass part of the car, not for the interior. You forgot the central storage if you open both storages (cup holder and the small storage at same time) there's a bigger and deeper one.

  • So, jet style cockpits were a new Honda idea? I'm sure that Saab would disagree! Nissan might also have a gripe as the 300ZX had all controls on pods behind the wheel, as did Citroen many years before.

  • In 1990 when I first saw the NSX I was in love, and now when I see a pic/vid of it from time to time I still fall in love with it. Its just amazingly proportioned not only horizontally, but vertically too, from all angles, sides, front and rear! There are maybe two dozen cars as simply eloquently designed as the NSX in the passed 100 years! Buy an NSX if you can acquire one, and dont drive it keep it in protection wait 10-20 years, I'm not the Creator I dont know for certainty the future but it'll be a supe high collectors assest as more years pass especially extreme clean samples. Anyways greetings from Turkiye! I love this car! :) Oh and Doug thank you to you too, doing a good job! :)

  • Bid to $68k... a couple years ago that would've been high, now it's not enough to meet reserve. Honestly if it was LHD I think it would've bid at $90k. Lots of people think owning a RHD is cool, but at the end of the day the car should be a bit cheaper as they sell for less in Japan and even with the import fee, the price is still expected to reflect the difference in market.
