1991 Acura NSX: Listen Up!
December 05, 2011
Several people here have written that the engine on our long-term 1991 Acura NSX sounds great. And it does.
But I was surprised by the deep growl of the 3.0L VTEC V6. I was expecting more of a higher-pitched whine, common on racy and racecar V6s.
I believe this engine sounds best out of any V6 I've experienced, including one of my all time favs, the Nissan R35 GT-R.
Hit the jump to listen for yourself.

I had the driver side window down for both of these brief runs.
I ran into the rev limiter briefly. Redline is at 8K.
