New clothes, shoes, iPods, and TVs are all overrated anyway.
It's the car that put Ferrari and Lamborghini on notice. No longer were these revered Italian supercar companies able to get away with interiors whose quality hovered around department store-grade cardboard boxes. Despite their simple analog appearances, the quality was pretty crappy. As was overall vehicle reliability. The cost of repairs was insanely expensive, too. But it was the Acura NSX that changed the supercar landscape forever when it launched in 1990.
It was so good at being awesome that it remained in production, albeit with a number of upgrades along the way, until 2005. And if you’ve found yourself to have a craving for one, then perhaps this is your lucky day. This bone stock 1993 Acura NSX, with its 3.0-liter NA V6 and six-speed manual gearbox, is up for sale on eBay. It’s red with black interior and leather upholstery. Only two previous owners have occupied the driver’s seat. Though not in perfect condition, there is something of a downside: it has 232,072 miles on the clock. Now, with any car that’s been driven for that sheer number, some issues have arisen.
These include new front and rear brakes, antenna mast, clutch kit and fly wheel, master cylinder, slave cylinder, valve cover gasket set, rear cam plug seals, radiator, timing belt and water pump. There are also a few nicks, scratches and chips on the body, but all can be touched up. In summary, a full restoration is needed here, but the end result approaches the spectacular spectrum. The highest bid, as of writing, is $16,400.
