1991 Acura NSX: Does This Make Me Look Fat?

October 26, 2011

Vehicle capacity weight: 400 lbs. T'was a simpler time in the late 80s.

According to a study by the CDC, the average weight of the American male between 1988 and 1994 was 181.3 pounds. By 2002, that number swelled to 189.3 pounds. Today? 194.7.

But the dudes weren't alone, the average weight of women has jumped from 153 in the '88-'94 study to 164 today.

This means that if you put two average American males in our 1991 NSX, you'll have an additional 10 pounds of wiggle room for luggage or some food and water. An average man and woman gives you a sweet 40 pound buffer. Which is about equal to Riswick's garment bag.
