Item description for Acura NSX: Honda's Supercar by Brian Long...
First shown at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show, the NSX eventually went on sale in the summer of 1990. Loved by the motoring press, the NSX took the world by storm with its good looks and F1 breeding.

Acura NSX book Aug 6, 2007
The book was in excellent shape and was exactly what I expected. I own an NSX and this is a great discussion of the conception and design of a superb car. Great service, good price. Thanks this site.
My dream car: NA1 NSX-R Mar 9, 2007
ive been in love with nsx ever since i saw it. this book does a great job of getting the history, techinical, pictures of the nsx. alot of pics of brochures and stuff. only draw back is that this book was published a little before the disconntinual of the nsx (2005). so it lacks information like, "how many nsx sold in its 15 year production". and it doesnt have info on the nsx-gt... besides that everything else is great. i wish they made another book on nsx with 100% complete info from the start to end.
Great Book Jan 10, 2007
This was a great purchase - my partner actually chose it for Christmas and I had to get it from overseas as it wasn't in NZ. He absolutely raves about it - has amazing diagrams and great pictures/info etc. You won't be disappointed.
Fully Detailed ? Feb 23, 2006
My nephew always wanted a coffeetable book on his favorite car the NSX, but couldn't find one. I got him this one and he's totally satisfied with it thinking at first it was just photos until he opened it and noticed how detailed it was. He's big on info and specs and says this book has it all from concept to production of every genation to the future of the NSX. He's a 'debater' type person and now has an informative official book to back-up his bragging debates about the NSX even though it'll be years before he can afford to own one. THAT'S WHY I GAVE IT 4 STARS BECAUSE IT'S NOT MY BOOK OR MY INTREST.
Super Car - Poor documentation Feb 22, 2006
Being an NSX owner I was looking forward to a exteneded work about the development, design, factory construction process, testing, track related history and so on. What I really got was a rehash of factory brochures, press handouts, sales enhanced books with a history of Honda's rise from the ashes of WWII tossed in. This history can probably be easily found in other boods on the Honda product line. Few if any of the photograhs in the book have not been available via the many different handouts given by the dealer and American Honda. Little to nothing was shown of the manufacture of the car at it's unique facility and how certain problems were solved by their engineers and design staff. And even less is given about how the car is suported in the different racing venues throughout the world. It's strange and even sad that Japan's first major super exotic, the NSX, is given so little credit in the press, magazines, and publishers of books like this. It's even stranger that a well known author of automotive books, took the easy way out in trying to create a detailed work about the NSX with mainly press junket fluff. Not recommended for the serious car enthusiast among us.
