The Honda NSX, or Acura NSX in North America, was a very popular sports car that the Japanese automaker produced between 1990 and 2005 (if you don’t know the Honda/Acura NSX, then you basically aren’t that well educated in cars).
The mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive sports car ended production in 2005 after a few hundred vehicles sold annually worldwide. Honda felt that the very high cost of manufacturing the NSX along with the interest of producing a new model with a V10 engine made a weak business case to continue production. In 2005, honda officially announced that it will cease production of the NSX and allocate the resources to develop a successor.
In December 2007, Honda’s American CEO, Tetsuo Iwamura, confirmed that a new NSX powered by a V10 engine was in the works and would be introduced to the market in 2010. However, that never happened and we still long for a successor to the original NSX.
Either way, the folks at FORMAT67.net have created a 6 minute (6:17 to be exact) tribute to the NSX.
Check it out after the jump – and we recommend sitting back in your chair turning up the volume on your speakers as the video is very pleasing to the eyes and ears.
