    NSX

    I pulled up next to a yellow NSX at a light on US 441 in Gainesville (4 lane major highway) and he looks over at me and starts revving his motor(I have no idea what year it was but it looked newer and sounded pretty good). I was laughing cause the guy must have been at least 60. The light turns green and I punched it and immediately put 3 cars on him (with Wheelspin) up to the speed limit. I stopped at about 70 and he flies by me and puts his hazards on. I got the rcer Fly By from a senior citizen...

    Nice kill!!

    The guy must have had dementia, that would explain why he would pay $90,000 for a Honda with 290HP.

    90k? But also its not only the horsepower you're getting. You pay for the handling too. Remember this isnt a muscle car.

    For close to $100 grand i'd think you'd deserve some horsepower too.

    I usually don't like ricers, but for some reason i always liked the NSX. Probably because it actually has some decent styling compared to the crappy ricers they put out today with no style whatsoever (i.e. the WRX). I remember seeing the NSX in Quentin Terintino's "Pulpfiction", and it did have a nice sound to it taking off! I do think they made a turbo version that pushed well over 300hp, still not worth the $90,000 price tag though (sorry, would have taken a yellow Z-R1 convertible back then over an NSX and save a few bucks to boot).

    Yeah I really like the looks of them, and the exhaust note is nice for a smaller motor. They are Wayyyyyyyy too expensive though. For that much money i would buy a Brand new Z06 vette

    I saw an automatic NSX run at the track years ago. That thing was running like high 14's. Stunning looks though.

    90 grand for 290hp and handling you'll rarely if ever use? seems rediculous.

    Actually, the turbo version had 290 hp. The other, NA version, had 240 hp and I hung with one in my v6 firebird a few years back up in Lubbock.

    lol nice kill. My ex was at an acura dealership looking at a tl I walked over and looked at the nsx they had 2 on the showroom floor. This sales guy walks up to me all smug talking about yeah she's worth every dollar. I look down and see the sticker over $80k, then I look at the power no even 300 and I laugh. I told him i'll stick with my camaro. He gets all but hurt and response with well does you camaro have almost 300hp, those have what like 200 225. I laugh again told him stock to the crank 325 and even more tq. He's all well how much did you pay must have been alot, I smiled $12k. After that it was an "oh" and he walks away it was priceless.

    Yeah I bought my car for 8K... I put about 6K into it and I run mid 11's.... The NSX is a very sexy car though. Along the lines of a benz or a Porsche
