Acura’s first major change to the widely admired NSX came in December of 2001 when a mild facelift was introduced. The most noticeable change was the replacement of the NSX’s original pop-up headlamps with fixed xenon HID units. At the rear, the original twin exhaust tips were replaced by quad units, along with a redesigned spoiler. Wider rear tires were fitted along with a slightly revised suspension. Furthermore, in North America, the coupe was discontinued, leaving the targa as the only available body style. In addition to a number of sporty colors, buyers could choose between automatic or manual transmissions.

According to the accompanying CARFAX report, this NSX was originally delivered to Acura de San Juan of Puerto Rico in 2005 prior to being sold in the contiguous 48 states the following year. Finished in New Formula Red over a black leather interior and fitted with a manual transmission, the car has travelled less than 9,200 miles from new, with the vast majority of those being accrued in the U.S., prior to its purchase by the current owner and subsequent importation from California to Switzerland in 2017. As such, the car presents in wonderful condition throughout.

Combining sublime looks, driving dynamics, performance, and overall value, the NSX quickly gained cult-car status and has remained highly desirable since its introduction. Low-mileage examples are few and far between and with less than 9,200 miles from new, this affordable Japanese supercar will not disappoint.

Estimated Price: $100,000 – $120,000 (No Reserve)
