First Generation 1990-2005

The NSX started with the HP-X (Honda Pininfarina eXperimental) concept. Which was a mid-engine 3.0L V6 engine rear wheel drive sports car. Honda finished the project with the intention to meet or exceed the V8 engine of Ferrari, while having better reliabilty and a lower price. The concept then changed to the NSX which stood for "New", "Sportscar" "Unknown (X) World"

The NSX was designed by Masahito Nakano and Shigeru Uehara. The 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

Unlike the first generation NSX which was manufactured in Japan, the new NSX was designed and engineered in Marysville, Ohio, at Honda's plant, led by chief engineer Ted Klaus.

The new NSX has a hybrid electric powertrain, with a 3.5 L twin-turbocharged V6 engine and three electric motors, two of which form part of the "SH-AWD" all wheel drive drivetrain, altogether capable of close to 600 hp. The transmission is a 9-speed dual-clutch automatic.
