The Acura NSX (Honda NSX) that was allegedly stolen 16 years ago and dumped in a river in North Carolina (USA) has found a new owner. The car was discovered at the bottom of the river in 2019, completely by accident, during a search for missing persons. Until now, it was owned by a demolition company, but recently someone bought the NSX, which had seen better days, for $8,500 (HUF 2.9 million).
The buyer, who runs a workshop specializing in NSXs, says he wants to resurrect the car.
The junkyard owner sees no realistic chance of this car ever being resurrected; and looking at the photos, don’t exaggerate, the work will be a real challenge. The disappearance of the Japanese verda was reported to the authorities at the end of 2003.
The NSX only has 51,000 kilometers on it. The bodywork looks relatively intact, but the condition of the drivetrain is unknown, and will probably need to be replaced if it’s still there at all.
The customer does not hide that he hopes that Honda will see imagination in the matter and help them in the renovation, since it is their former flagship.
The first generation of the Honda NSX was presented by the Japanese in 1989. The cabin is said to be inspired by the cockpit of the F-16 fighter jet. Its engine is a 3.2-liter, naturally aspirated V6 gasoline engine, which produces 294 horsepower at 7,100 rpm. It accelerates to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 270 km/h.
