The Acura NSX 2005 (NA2) is a supercar made by Acura that appears in the Asphalt series. The Acura NSX name is used for the North American market while the Honda NSX name is used for the worldwide market. It was also one of the first cars to be manufactured with an all aluminum monocoque and and a performance target that was supposed to be the equivalent of a Ferrari 328, later revised to 348 when it was nearing completion.
The Honda NSX, marketed in North America as the Acura NSX, is a two-seat, manufactured by Honda/Acura.
The origins of the NSX trace back to 1984, with the HP-X (Honda Pininfarina eXperimental) concept, which was a mid-engined 3.0 L sports car. Honda committed to the project, with the intention of meeting or exceeding the performance of the then Ferrari range, while offering reliability and a lower price point. The concept thus evolved and had its name changed to NS-X, which stood for "New", "Sportscar" "eXperimental", although the production model was launched as the NSX. The NSX was designed by a team led by Chief Designer, Masahito Nakano, and Executive Chief Engineer, Shigeru Uehara. It benefitted from advanced aerodynamics and styling inspired by a F-16 fighter jet cockpit and input from the late Formula One World Champion, Ayrton Senna, during the final development stages.
This NSX became the world's first mass-produced car to feature an all-aluminium body. It was powered by an all-aluminium 3.0 L V6 engine, which featured Honda's VTEC (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) system developed in the 1980s, a 5-speed manual transmission or the SportShift 4-speed automatic transmission, which allows the option of conventional automatic shifting or manually shifting with a fingertip control shift lever on the steering column.
It was presented at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show and was built in a purpose-made factory in Japan, for sale from 1990. It was originally available as a coupé and, from 1995, a targa top. It underwent a performance upgrade in 1997, which saw the arrival of a larger 3.2 L V6 engine, and a facelift in 2002 before being discontinued in 2005.
