The Acura NSX (NC1) (also known as the Honda NSX in Europe and Japan) is a mid-engined sports car manufactured by Acura and sold outside North America under the Honda brand.

While retaining the first generation's mid-engine and V6 configuration, the car utilises three electric motors to make the car's drivetrain a hybrid all-wheel drive system, and it is known as "Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (Sport Hybrid SH-AWD)."

To keep the weight as low as possible, the car was designed to use a chassis made of mostly aluminum, augmented by use of carbon fibre body panels, placing it at a kerb weight of 1,725 kg.

Production of the second-generation NSX is assigned to the purpose-built Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio.
