1991 Acura NSX: Road Trip, Part 1
April 12, 2012
Late last week I took the Acura NSX on a road trip to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca near Monterey, California for a press event. But just sticking to Interstate 5 North or the 101 is boring. It's gotta be back roads. Or else, why bother?
And California's Central Valley has some of the best ones in the country, super twisty with exceedingly little traffic.
Follow the jump for some in-car video, to give you just a bit of the sensation of the NSX's glorious music.
The NSX performed admirably the entire time, of course always making those beautiful sounds. The non-assisted steering is wonderfully direct, and the sight lines are awesome.
The brakes did get a bit overheated on a few sections of really twisty bits, so I did my best to go easy on them when I could.
The seats proved perfectly comfortable and supportive throughout, whether on back roads or slogging along the highway. And that shifter is just superb.
