Back in 1990, Honda broke the mold and introduced the NSX model within their Acura brand. The mid-engined, 270 horsepower, 2-seater NSX quickly proved to be as reliable and bulletproof as Honda's other standard models. To be sure, the NSX was every bit a capable supercar, with some impressive stats for the era:
- Weight of 1405 kg (3097 lbs)
- 0-60 mph acceleration of 5.5 seconds
- Top speed of 270 km/h (168 mph)
- 60-0 mph braking of 119 feet
After 15 years, the NSX was pulled from production in 2005. A legend right out of the gate, it managed to carve a name for itself alongside the legendary Italian, British, and French exotics, which is even more impressive when you consider the decades of racing experience and history behind those other models.
