    Details:

    I am proud to present this immaculate 1992 Acura NSX finished in the most desirable and rare color for the model, Grand Prix White. This NSX is 1 of only 325 manual-transmission Grand Prix White "NA1" coupes produced for the USA-market. It is paired with a highly desirable Black interior.

    The NA1 generation NSX includes the original and extremely rigid coupe chassis tested & approved by legendary Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna, an attribute which was lost with the introduction of the later Targa cars which are significantly less rigid.

    This NSX has lived in Southern California from new, and with its 2nd caring owner for the past 20+ years. He purchased the car directly from the 1st owner, a close friend.

    44,650 miles. No accidents. 100% clean Carfax. 100% original paint, verified by paint meter. Free & clear, clean title.

    This car is in fantastic condition, significantly better than the already-low mileage would suggest. All accessories work as they should inside & out, including the radio and A/C which have both been serviced according to need. I have sourced, owned, driven, and sold tens of NSXs and can confidently say this is a fantastic example in truly striking condition. NSXs in Grand Prix White, with low miles, and without an abundance of modifications simply do not come along often.


    Maintenance Information:

    General fluid servicing, A/C servicing as needed, radio & speaker servicing as needed, and more is all documented within the service records included with the car.

    Tires are brand new Bridgestone RE-71Rs in correct NSX sizing, fitted within the past two months.

    Timing belt and water pump service was last completed in 2006.

    This NSX's transmission number is within & towards the tail end of the snap ring range. However, the transmission shifts as any NSX transmission should, and has proven completely reliable throughout its 44,650 mile life. If a potential buyer would like to have the snap ring issue "fixed" preemptively (a very affordable job), we are happy to deliver the car to our local NSX technician who is one of the most respected and experienced in the country with these cars. However, keep in mind that it is very unlikely the transmission case on this car is in reality one of the defective units, as it would have already developed issues at these miles. We recommend simply driving & enjoying the car as-is, just as the previous owners have done without issue for the past 26 years.

    Original exhaust and header were replaced with DC Sports examples in 1997. Stock catalytic converters are retained. Invoices dated 1997 and DC Sports brochures are included with the car. As I have driven countless NSXs, I can comment on this exhaust setup by saying it sounds exactly like stock on the inside of the car, and significantly better than stock outside the car. It is by no means "loud," but simply has a nicer tone and a touch more volume than the nearly-silent stock exhaust.


    Cosmetic Notes:

    100% original paint, verified by professional paint meter. There are only two real blemishes to note on this car. The passenger side black B-pillar trim piece has some scratches on it, and could use replacement. Secondly, the driver's seat back bolster has a small wear spot that has gone through the leather, easily fixable by an upholstery shop. Otherwise, this NSX is immaculate inside & out! No dings, scratches, or paint chips to note are present on the paintwork, and the interior has been cared for meticulously.



    Car comes with the following:

    - Original window sticker, in pristine condition.

    - NSX "black cover" coffee-table book distributed only to original owners, never opened and still in the original wrapper.

    - Complete folder of service records dating back to new.

    - 1992 NSX "Driving Adventure" invitation and thank-you letter sent to the original owner.

    - 1992 letter from the Acura VP thanking the original owner for purchasing an NSX.

    - Early letter from Acura regarding the Yokohama tire recall and tire vouchers.

    - Original owner's manual with pouch and ancillary pamphlets.

    - Acura "In The News" pamphlet with media stories on the NSX.

    - 1992 NSX accessories brochure.

    - Original cruise control instructions.

    - Original "customer assistance" pamphlet.

    - Original OEM accessory CD-changer and keyless-entry instructions & manuals.

    - Magazine clippings featuring NSX stories.

    - NSX-branded wooden box with location-based driving cards.

    - Need For Speed SE on CD-Rom, which featured the NSX.

    - DC Sports catalogs and order invoices for header & exhaust.

    Asking $69,995 OBO.

    GLWS, I may mildly object to the reference that GPW is the most desirable and rare. As I find other colors much more desirable, namely Imola and Long Beach Blue. Here's hoping the next steward of this very nice NSX fully appreciates this fine automobile.

    That's fine, but Grand Prix White NSXs simply sell for more money than any other color, proving desirability. It is also the rarest NA1 coupe color, which is what I was referring to. The targas are technically NSX-Ts, not NSXs.

    Is it worth it to just do the snap ring fix prior to selling? Don't know if it's still a hot issue, but back a few years ago when I was shopping for a(n) NSX, and this was like the belts on a 308 / 328. Not too much work to get done, but car is easier to sell / buy if it has been done. GLWS.

    Got your name written all over it - buy it! White is a great color, and this thing is stock, which is the way they should be.

    Equating it to the belts on a car isn't really a great comparison, because the snap ring issue is something that only affects some cars within the range, and is not time sensitive either (only mileage sensitive). On this particular car, the transmission has travelled over 44,000 miles without issue, so the likelihood of it being one of the bad ones is a very small %. However, if someone wants to have it done, it's as simple as working it into the deal and we drop the car off at our local NSX specialist.

    It is not the silver and black book. You are correct, the silver and black book was a marketing tool, not just for original owners.

    This is the all-black book, which was for original owners, as I wrote, and much rarer than your silver and black book. Hope that clears things up for you.

    Add in Formula Red and I agree with you. I think saying GPW is most desirable is trying to make a connection to the iconic Championship White of the ITR and CTR.

    Come on guys.......its 'white'...o_O........and white is white. You don't really get allot of shade options with white otherwise its not white anymore is it :rolleyes: !!!!

    As for rare and most desirable maybe that's just a little melodramatic IMHO :D

    On another note, with Ferrari's, if its white its usually significantly cheaper... and rarer I guess as few people buy them in white to begins with ;)!

    Pending sale!

    Well, I am simply going off of the fact that white NSXs sell for significantly more than all other colors, a fact that actually translates to almost all Japanese collector cars.

    But, what do I know? I'm just a guy who has owned more NSXs than I can count on one hand, been involved in the sale of tens of these cars, and studies the market daily.
