The exotic without the headache

by on
Vehicle: 1997 Acura NSX T 2dr Coupe

Not only was this car the fulfillment of a young man's dream, but it exceeded every expectation; driving, appearance, satisfaction, value (yeah, value in an exotic). It's fast, and has looks and technology that 15 years later still excels. Every owner I've ever met has been classy and that says a lot about the type that drives this car. I've had Ferraris and a Porsche, and the NS is the most satisfying.

You'll never do better (new or used) in terms of bang for the buck. This is an incredibly well made car.




Exotic it is

I LOVE MY NSX-T, IT IS AN EYE CATCHER, FAST, THE BEST HANDLING CAR I HAVE EVER DRIVEN. I AM THE SECOND OWNER WITH 24000 MILES, IT'S A DREAM.

Edmunds price is ridiculously low. good luck finding a car at that price. I paid mid 50s for a 27mi, 97 NSX-T.




The best of both worlds...

Vehicle: 1997 Acura NSX T 2dr Coupe

some say the nsx fails in both classes - its not "exotic" enuff (power, agressiv e looks) to be a great exotic and its not "friendly" enuff (more seats, quiet, truck space) to be a luxury car for commuting/cruising. but I say what acura has done well with the nsx is find the perfect balance of b oth. if you can buy a viper and a mercedes than go for it... but if you have the money for only 1 car the nsx gets both jobs done well. I commuted in mine for over a year - its possible to enjoy both worlds at the same time day in and day out... but only in an nsx.




Best car ever produced

for SUVs prior to the MDX. Nor was Honda known for minivans prior to 1999. They weren't known for cross-overs until the 1997 CR-V. Acura wasn't known for supercars until the NSX. And they weren't ...
