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.

  • You do know the suspension on that car was tested and tweaked by the greatest driver to touch a steering wheel, Ayrton Senna.

  • Owned a couple Acuras back in the 90s, the RL and the Vigor and you pop the hood and it says Honda everywhere, try taking one to a Honda dealership and they wouldn't touch it, had to take it to a Acura dealership for service...I understand Toyota does the same with Lexus AND Nissan with there Infinity brand, what nobody cross trains anymore?

  • 14:20 I'd imagine that button was probably to keep the remote mast antenna from bending in half at substantial speed. As someone who owned an E28 with a Hirschmann telescoping antenna, they don't respond well whatsoever to lateral forces.

  • Pfftt I live in New Zealand.. These were, like the Nissan GTR, thousands of dollars less before the US Govt opened up the regulations to buy them. Im not complaining.. my 1996 R33 GTR that was worth 25k 10 years ago is now worth 90K+! Thanks America........ LOL !!!! You silly beggars!!! :D :D

  • I think the Old Nsx will never go to high prices such as Supra, and its better than Supra in Handling and driving experience, for me its the best Japonese car ever built, the second is Supra A80 and after the Gtr in my opinion.

    • NSXs and Supras are neck and neck in pricing currently. Supra also had the marketing benefit of featuring as the hero car in The Fast and the Furious, where the NSX did not.

  • In comparison with todays values, do you think the S2k is a better option since they are relatively cheaper and have a lot more to boom in value when compared to teh already inflated prices of the NSX?

  • The best ' spec ' for NSX is : 6 speed manual , targa roof , 3.2 litre motor and pop up headlight .

    • Pop up headlights manual 3.0 or 3.2 L are the best IMO ...the targa as issues in handling, the structural rigidity is horrible and water problems inside because of the targa top

  • The 90s Honda thing is really something, my first car is a Honda del Sol 1.6 esi. It is of course not comparable to a NSX but it is still the most exciting car I have driven. I have not driven that many cars yet but all of them except the Honda just felt unresponsive and boring, the transmission feels soft and just not enjoyable the same with the body roll. The Honda on the other hand does not have these problemes with its snappy shifting and very low and kind of hard suspension. It is also reliable and the little V-tec at the end of the rpms make it sound nice and gives it a little sporty feel. The targa top you can put in the surprisingly big trunk and the rearwindow you can lower are also a nice touch. I never saw Honda as a car brand I really like but since that 26 year old car of mine showed me how enjoyable driving can be I see that 90s Hondas really have something to them.

  • 6:34 I don’t think Honda was trying to warn someone who’s breaking into the car that there’s a security system, that’s why there’s not one on the passengers side. The lights only there to tell the driver. Thats why they just put it on the outside cause you’d never notice what it said if it was on the inside because you lock your car when you are outside of it.

Conventional medicine has FAILED to solve HAIR LOSS because it has focused only on blocking DHT. I cured my HAIR LOSS with a NEW method described at which explains why the MAIN cause of HAIRLOSS is not DHT but a reduction in the BLOOD FLOW to the scalp due to a tight lower scalp layer called the GALEA and shows how to cure hair loss with no drugs, no lotions and no surgery. Get the e-book. It costs only 29.95 and this REALLY, REALLY WORKS
