The Honda NSX or also known in North America as the Acura NSX, is a two seat, mid-engine sports car manufactured by Honda from year 1990 until today. It is very interesting to note that the car was first unveiled as a concept car in 1984 through the so-called HPX or Honda Pininfarina eXperimental. was a mid-engined 2.0 L V6 engined rear wheel drive sports car. Honda committed to the project, with the intention of meeting or exceeding the performance of the then V8 engined Ferrari range, while offering reliability and a lower price point. The concept thus evolved and had its name changed to NS-X, which stood for “New”, “Sportscar” “eXperimental”. The first generation of NSX lasted from 1990 to 2005. This NSX became the world’s first mass-produced car to feature an all-aluminium body. It was powered by an all-aluminium 3.0 L V6 engine, which featured Honda’s VTEC (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) system developed in the 1980s, a 5-speed manual or 4-speed Sports Shift automatic transmissions. It was presented at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show and was built in a purpose-made factory in Japan, for sale from 1990. It was originally available as a coupé and, from 1995, a targa top. It underwent a performance upgrade in 1997, which saw the arrival of a larger 3.2 L V6 engine.
