2003 acura nsx for sale 11
Fast Facts:

  • Acura looked to no other than famed F1 driver Arton Senna to help fine tune the chassis, suspension, and driving dynamics of the NSX. Bob Rahal, an Indy Champion, helped as well
  • The NSX featured the worlds first all aluminum production monocoque developed with the use of a supercomputer. It weighed only 450lbs, about 40% lighter than an equivalent steel monocoque while maintaining equal rigidity. This was used for the entire 15 year production
  • The suspension was mostly forged aluminum, and was designed with a pivot point that kept toe changes to an absolute minimum throughout spring and shock travel
  • Outward visibility was one of the many priorities of the initial design, so Acura created the cockpit to mimic that of a “fighter canopy shaped greenhouse” with 312 degrees of visibility. The result is that there are very few blind spots in an NSX
  • Acura almost used their 4 wheel steering system technology (unveiled in the Prelude) but ultimately decided the 100 lb penalty would go against the overall lightweight concept of the NSX
  • The engine of the NSX used titanium connecting rods as standard – a first for a production car. Titanium rods were only found in Formula One and other high end race engines at the time
Key Model Year Changes:

  • Rear sway bar size increased from 17.5 mm to 19.1 mm. Wall thickness remains at 2.3 mm
  • The previous year (2002) marked the biggest cosmetic changes for the NSX, discontinuing the pop-up headlights in the process
  • The next notable update wouldn’t arrive until 2004, which includes new colors and small interior updates
