There are two generations of the Acura NSX supercar, so you're able to explore which version is right for you.

Safety

By 2001, the Acura NSX also featured seatbelts that locked in the event of an accident, a four-wheel antilock brake system (ABS), traction control and an anti-theft alarm system.

Acura NSX trims manufactured in 2017 and later have additional safety features such as stability control, daytime running lights and dual side-mounted airbags.
