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.

I had my '91 for 20 years. It had 190K miles on it when I sold it and it didn't have a rattle or a squeak anywhere on it. I miss it terribly. Note: at 7:29 you can see that the old ABS actuator has been updated to the 2002+ model. The original actuators and accumulators were prone to malfunction. And, fun fact, if you pull on those door-mounted vents they swivel out sideways to direct the air toward you.

I think the height of antenna is important for Japanese market because of their parking tower environment.

I was around grd 5 (1990-91) when it came out. Right across my building, was an Acura dealership with a red NSX that was right front n center. We all thought it was a Ferrari level car since it looked so sleek. They left it out there for years.

I guess it's not quirky enough for him to buy one for himself. I recall the NSX being in the 70-80k range when it came out, not nearly Ferrari money.

Senna helped with the balance of the car, they had to redo the whole structure of the car because of Senna’s input.

nsx ain’t even close to being as nice as a supra or a GTR
Your wrong the nsx was double the price of the Supra and gtr when sold new. Nsx is and was the best super Japanese import ever. Even the Japanese will tell you that.

Practicality is a 2 out of 10? That's a low ball score. It's at least a 6 out of 10 because you can drive and park this beast without having a heart attack. You can pick up groceries and fill up both trunks with supplies. This is something you can actually drive daily, thus beating even the newer F355...

Because if a car is Japanese it is apparently worth money. At least the car can still be had less than retail in the automatic versions.

Nah, pimp. That's not a '94. 94 NSX's have updated rims (16/17) so it must be either a '91 - '93. If an owner wants to put the car back to stock, why would he put the earlier rims on it? I had five of those cars so I know.

For my generation, the NSX was a supercar made by the company that once produced the CVCC. That's coming a long ways, akin to Hyundai's journey from Excel to Stinger. It's delightful to watch a company hit upon performance - sort of a milestone.

Doug, wheels are 15" front, 16" rear. Original 3.0L engine is 270hp, 3.2 was 290hp. The "Half" (antenna) button is Japan version only, as are those extra unused buttons. The cup holders are also Japanese version. The US version had a storage compartment there, and the optional hard wired cellular phone. In US version, the climate control's lowest "fan" speed is "auto". Meaning, only in THAT setting is it auto only. If you switch the fan knob, you then control the fan, which takes it out of auto mode. And if you change the temp knob you can make it colder or warmer... giving you almost the same controls as regular system, which is intuitive and normal. The key to the engine is 270hp from 3 liters and an 8100 rpm red line. It pulls hard (for its low torque) WAY past where normal cars stop pulling. The other big thing with the engine is VTEC (variable valve timing and lift control), which is still trying to be equaled by Porsche, BMW and others today - combined with its legendary reliability.
