The Acura NSX is widely accepted as one of the most exceptional Japanese sports cars ever produced. First shown at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show, the car featured a striking design, with impressive performance and handling due to its specially designed lightweight aluminum body. The NSX was a departure from the luxury family vehicles most associated with Acura. This marked a new direction for the company, one of performance and style.
The magnificent 1997 Acura NSX-T featured here is finished in stunning Berlina Black over Onyx leather interior. This incredible motorcar can virtually not be told from new. The engine has driven a mere 22525 miles from new. This two (Northern California) owner NSX-T was originally purchased by Lee Woodall - a San Francisco 49er with a Super bowl ring and second owner is Greg Stirling an internationally known kinetic sculpture artist. Original sticker and owner’s manual are included. This highly optioned investment-grade Acura NSX-T would be the perfect addition to any modern-day collection. I personally believe the investment potential of this iconic model will grow beyond your imagination. Offered to the most demanding collector, investor, or enthusiast, who aspires to acquire one of the absolute best!
There are now 290 horsepower and 224 pound-feet of torque bursting from the normally aspirated, 8000-rpm-redline engine; including the extra gear, the '97 NSX weighs a mere 4.5 pounds more than last year's version, so that should equate to better performance. With the gorgeous sound of the least powerful engine in the test blazing the driver's ear, the 3164-pound NSX-T swooped to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds (tying the Corvette and Ferrari) and through the quarter mile in 13.3 seconds at 106.7 mph. The engine's flyweight reciprocating assembly lives to rev, so the 7100-rpm horsepower peak is reachable in every giddily selected gear but the 0.72:1 overdriven sixth, where the 162.2-mph top speed occurs at 6800 rpm. This NSX is all original and stock except for Niche wheels with: Falken FK 452, 225/45 ZR16 Front - and Kumho Ecsta ASX 245/40 R17 Rear. 0.11-inch dia. paint chip on front right fender, and curb marks on right wheels - pictured.
As uniquely joyous as the engine is, the NSX's chassis is even better. The steering wheel sits low in the driver's lap and feels connected to the front tires as if by sinew and tendon rather than electrically assisted rack-and-pinion. But the immediacy of the NSX's reflexes is matched with elegance and phenomenal precision.
