4. Acura NSX
NSX was Japan’s answer to the Ferraris and Lamborghinis of the world. In the late 1980s and early ‘90s, Honda set out to create a world-class super car. The mid-engine NSX was the triumphant result. A rear-wheel-drive, mid-engine two-seater with a high-tech, Formula 1-inspired V-6 and a lightweight aluminum chassis, the NSX was truly ahead of its time. The car was developed with the assistance and expertise of famed Formula 1 champion Ayrton Senna, which imbued it with even greater motorsports legitimacy.
