First Generation Acura NSX
It’s making around 395 hp.
The Acura (or Honda, depending on the market) NSX is a supercar icon of the 1990s. With 270 horsepower (201 kilowatts) and 210 pound-feet (285 Newton-meters), it’s not too powerful by modern performance car standards. The one in this video solves that problem by strapping a supercharger to the 3.0-liter V6. The forced induction pushes the output to a claimed 395 hp (294 kW or 400 metric hp) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm). Let’s see what this machine can do on the Autobahn in this video.
At low speeds, this NSX sounds surprisingly docile. There’s a little rumble from the exhaust but nothing that suggests that the output is up around 125 hp (93 kW). At 37 miles per hour (60 kilometers per hour), you can start to hear the whine from the supercharger. It becomes louder as the revs climb.
