The Acura division of Honda had only been around for five years when Honda decided to roll out the ultimate halo car. Featuring the most advance automobile technology at the time, the Acura NSX was truly the world’s first exotic car that was reliable enough, luxurious enough, affordable enough, and ergonomically refined enough to be used as a daily driver.
Acura shocked the exotic car world when it introduced its NSX in 1991. Honda designers started with the basic exotic car wedge (championed by the Ferrari Testarossa and 308), that would remain basically unchanged for its entire life and could only be described as “beautiful.” To back up the gorgeous styling, the mechanical specifications were right out of a race car. The NSX featured a super-light all aluminum chassis, body, and suspension, a first for a production car.
The suspension was a double-wishbone suspension, mounted at both ends on aluminum subframes, just like Formula 1 cars. And the standard race-inspired V6 engine was mounted midship and featured Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC), six individual coils, and titanium connecting rods. This was the first application of VTEC in any production vehicle, but Honda’s experience with the VTEC system in the NSX would eventually reach all other Honda and Acura vehicles.
