Approved for Production! to Appear at 2012 Detroit

And those are just the tip of the

The first NSX was a technological tour de when it arrived in 1990. The sports car packed a dual-overhead-cam V-6 an all-aluminum wrapper.

The engine 270 hp, a staggering number for a six-cylinder at the time. For all that, it was the car’s that was the most impressive—piloting an NSX is having the controls hard-wired to gray matter.
