Spotted in China: Acura NSX in Yellow with a Red Bonnet
Published on February 5, 2014 by Tycho de Feijter
A very neat Acura NSX super car, Spotted in China in the great city of Heyuan in Guangdong Province by Zhu Yujian. The speedy Acura was painted in mellow yellow with a red bonnet, and sexed up even further with racy tires and 12 spoke matte gold alloys.
The vehicle looks a bit dusty & dirty but seems otherwise in very good shape. The Acura NSX was never officially exported to China so finding parts and expertise will be hard. The Honda/Acura NSX was manufactured from 1990 until 2005 with a facelift in 2002, this is a pre-facelifted car with the original pop-up headlamps. Power came from a 3.0 liter ‘CA30A’ V6 with 270hp and 280nm, good for a 280km/h top speed and a 0-100 in 5.2 seconds.
Extra reflectors and Acura branding indicate this yellow example was originally exported to the United States and somehow found its way to China. Giant chromed exhaust pipes seem after-market.
The next generation Acura NSX, expected to arrive sometime in 2016, will be sold in China. There is a small but fanatic NSX fan-base in the country, especially down south. We know of at least one other NSX, a race-ready example living somewhere in the great city of Shenzhen.
