1997 Acura NSX Coupe T 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Best Features

The VTEC paired with the aftermarket Comptech exhaust and cold air intake. THe car moves on a line and makes the driver feel confident


Worst Features

Honda hurry witht ehsecond gen NSX! I think only Honda will be able to pull off the exotic with 21st century technology and drivability. The next NSX will be another 15 years ahead of the competition.

Review

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 Features

looks, handling, vtec powerband, sound, no-excuses-reliability, its a tight car (handling, braking, wind, etc)


Worst Features

more hp, bigger/wider wheels with better offset, nav system, more storage compartments
