Gorgeous, High-mileage Acura NSX Pushes Price Ceiling Higher

Acura NSX

It might have more miles than most nice Acura NSX examples out there, but this one still isn’t cheap.

It’s not like clean first-gen Acura NSX examples have been cheap in some time. But lately, we’ve been watching values rise faster than your mom getting out of bed when you try and sneak in after a curfew-busting party with your friends. And that’s a shame, of course. The new NSX is awesome, but it just doesn’t offer the pure, unadulterated driving experience of the original. And it certainly doesn’t look as good as this stunning red 1991 model we spotted on Bring a Trailer.

Yep, if you’re looking for an ultra clean O.G. Acura NSX, this is your Huckleberry. The condition inside and out is deceivingly excellent given the car’s high (for an NSX, anyway) 125k miles. Obviously, it’s been impeccably cared for and has remained unmodified all these years, too. The seller just dropped a cool $3.5k on some extensive maintenance, which is always a bonus for buyers.

All the documentation is there too. Including the window sticker and maintenance records since new. And hey, it’s pretty rare color combo. Only 383 1991 Acura NSX models escaped the factory in Formula Red over Ivory, so there’s that. And it’s hard to see why, given how gorgeous it looks. Though we get why most folks shy away from the old “cocaine” white interiors of the Magnum P.I. persuasion.

At a sneeze under $42,000, it’s a serious chunk of change. Granted, that’s a bit of a bargain compared to lower mile cars we’ve seen lately. And it’s in pretty similar condition. But it also makes us wonder, just how high will prices go? Be sure and check out this one, and scope out all the gorgeous pics and details over at BaT.
