The Acura NSX is the UNDER APPRECIATED Daily Supercar! Will it be Forgotten?

The Acura NSX, or Honda NSX outside of the USA, is undoubtedly a seriously under-appreciated supercar. It launched with hybrid tech normally reserved for hypercars so I'm at Vegas Auto Gallery, to take it for a drive!
When I first drove the new generation NSX a number of years back, I was immediately impressed by the clever technology and how it integrated driving settings and the EV mode flawlessly, in a very easy to use car. From the layout of the interior, to the small packaging, and even the hugely variable exhaust note all in the case of the perfect daily supercar. This technology at the price point really set the way for new cars we're seeing coming through now like the McLaren Artura.
The NSX is powered by a 3.5l twin turbo V6 with 3 electric motors for a total power output of 581hp, however the additional motors and battery technology does bring about a weight penalty compared to rivals. What it does though is take a totally new approach to everything and result in a vehicle that stands out, looks fantastic, and is certainly very intriguing.
Values have softened since launch, but still hold relatively high compared to cars like R8s or McLaren Sports Series models for example, and I firmly believe it's going to be an interesting car for the future as really one of the first pioneers of this technology.
Thank you to Vegas Auto Gallery for lining up the test drive in their Acura NSX! No doubt this car won't be hanging around for long:

    The NSX is often under appreciated whereas it was really a pioneer of new technology that we're starting to see more and more on the market. This has to be an interesting car to watch for the future?! Thanks to Vegas Auto Gallery for the test drive! instagram.com/vegasautogallery

    It’s sad they don’t sell many of the RLX hybrid. It so much quieter than the NSX with almost all the driving dynamics of the NSX but of course you have to change expectations a bit knowing it’s a lot heavier. This makes the RLX such a great handling and ride vehicle. The only thing that stop me from considering the RLX is they don’t have Apple Car Play.

      not really because the Huracan/F8 are def better cars with better interiors, look better, are faster, sound better etc. People say that this is underrated but in reality it isn't.

    The NSX has always sailed a little under the radar. The first generation car only really caught people's imagination because of the involvement of Ayrton Senna in it's design and build stages. Even now, the price of the first gen NSX is so low compared to the competition of the time. I don't know if it's because of the image of the more mainstream saloon and hatchback range, or because they are just a little too modest as a company and don't yell about how stunning thier supercar is, either way this car is a serious bit of kit and is (in my opinion) massively underappreciated.

    I am in the market now for a supercar and the nsx is just too many compromises. Its interior is poor and akin to ford focus with that large centre console dial. It can only be serviced in one location in the UK at the moment. The aftermarket is weak and engine mods are a magnitude more difficult to tie in with the hybrid system. I feel it was a car build by the engineers of honda for the engineers of honda, but not for the enthusiast who wants to tinker.

    I really like the NSX. The design is beautiful, it has nice wheels, it’s fast, it has 2 turbos and 600+ horsepower. And....it’s a Honda! Crazy. I think a base price of $158k is a bit expensive for an Acura but I actually really like it. And it’s sad that people over look it when they think of super cars but I’m sure it can compete with names like Lamborghini, Ferrari and Porsche. It’s a great car.
