50k-Mile Acura NSX Has Something In Common With Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

For Sale / 5 Comments

And it's not an unhealthy fixation with pepperoni pizza.

The Acura NSX is about to get a special send-off with the Type S treatment, and people are going wild for it. Teasers haven't revealed very much just yet, but we have been shown what the new model will sound like. Still, no matter what the latest NSX offers, true fans of the nameplate only care about the model that Ayrton Senna had a hand in developing in the Nineties. These can get seriously pricey, but the one listed today isn't overly inflated. That's despite the fact that it was bought new by Kevin Eastman, the co-creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

This is an early model from 1991, the year in which the car was first released, and has just over 50,000 miles on the clock. It comes with a five-speed manual transmission and all the factory items you'd expect from a low-mileage example like the spare wheel, tools, owner's manual, and window sticker. That window sticker is particularly noteworthy as it has a small doodle of a Ninja Turtle, the words "Love the NSX" and a small "K. East" signature. Eastman clearly did love the car, as he put 47,211 miles on it before he sold it on in 2016. The third owner then bought the car a year later with just three more miles on the clock. The current owner has also barely driven it, adding a little more than 3,000 miles in four years.

The car has had plenty of regular and preventative maintenance and its original paint has been protected by 3M film on the front half of the car. ClassicCars.com has it listed as "mostly unmodified" but doesn't list what has been changed. That said, we can suppose that just the exhaust system has been altered as the sale also mentions the inclusion of the original muffler. If you're interested in this Berlina Black NSX over Ivory White interior, it's currently in Pontiac, Michigan and has an asking price of $80,000 OBO. We suspect that it should get its price, but you can always try offer a little less and score a bargain.
