The NSX is the crowing achievement of the Honda Motor Company and was produced from 1990-2005, with only slight changes from year to year. Sold under the Acura marque in the United States, the NSX was a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive coupe with an all-aluminum 3.0 liter V6 that revved up to 8,000 rpm. The monocoque chassis that contained Honda's first VTEC motor was also all-aluminum, making the car incredibly light and stiff. Upon release, the NSX took the automotive world by storm; reviews compared the car's performance to much more expensive exotics, but with Honda reliability.Engineers intended the car to be the perfect balance of street and track machine. In 1997, the V6 was bored out to 3.2 liters and now produced 290 bhp and 224 lb-ft of torque. The second generation NSX hybrid concept debuted in 2012 and is slated for production in 2015.
