A 1991 Acura NSX with only 1,733 miles (2,789 km) on the odometer and a single owner from new is up for sale on eBay for a “buy it now” price of $185,000! That can’t even compare to the MSRP of a brand new 2019 Acura NSX, which starts at $157,500.
This being eBay, we were curious to see if there had been any bids for the mint NSX with a red exterior and black leather interior. Surprise, surprise: no one had placed a bid for it — at least not before this story was published.
It the seller’s defense, however, it’s the first time ever this particular car has been on the market, and as the ad claims, it’s in “collector grade concourse edition.” The description adds that the first-gen NSX is 100-percent authentic and original (no restoration involved), and is offered with full documentation from new.
It even comes with the original hardback “coffee table” book, owner manuals, all keys, car cover, and even factory stickers. A time capsule if there ever was one, we’ll give it that.
We have to admit we kind of feel sorry for the car’s owner who, instead of driving the wheels off the NSX, tucked it away and “lovingly maintained” it in a climate controlled collection since driving off the showroom floor on September 6, 1990.
One would need superhuman strengths (or a big thirst for marking a huge profit) to resist the calling of the NSX for so many years, don’t you think? Here’s hoping whoever buys it will give the Japanese sports car the driving it deserves.
