This 1992 Acura NSX is having its first wash in 22 years – and it’s ASMR-level satisfying.

The 32-year-old gem had been stuck in storage for 22 years of its life.

However, while it could have stacked up the miles during the ten years it was on the road, its odometer suggests otherwise.

The Japanese car had driven just 3,222 km (2,002 miles) from delivery.

The 1992 Acura NSX was then parked up for 22 years since 2002.

Thankfully its owner recently decided to give it a second chance at life and give the vintage car a much-needed clean.


They trusted AMMO NYC, the ‘first completely fussy car care company’ to do the job.

Per their website: “AMMO is a detailing system designed to protect and enrich the world’s most priceless cars.”

While the supercar has sadly missed decades of road time, kept in dry storage, it emerged with only minor issues.

Dirt on the Grand Prix White body and a bit of mold inside the cabin were the only problems reported in the footage from AMMO – unlike this Acura NSX with hypersonic jet interior that was found rotting in the woods.

Similarly, this Acura NSX was found abandoned in a river 16 years after it was stolen.

Both problems were easily rectified and the owner decided to sell the car as, in his own words, he’s ‘not getting any younger’ and ‘could use the money’.

While NSX wasn’t running at the time the video was shot, it’s hoped to be back up and on the road soon.

Built for the 1992 model year, this NSX is part of the long-running first generation of Honda’s now iconic supercar.

It was the first production car to feature an all-aluminum semi-monocoque.

The model was developed in collaboration with Formula One champion, Ayrton Senna.

The NSX remained in production until 2005, undergoing a revamp in 2002 that saw its pop-up headlamps disappear.

It was only available as a coupe when it went into production in 1990 before a targa-top version emerged in 1995.

The NSX hit showrooms with a 3.0-liter V6 (C30A) engine rated at 270 horsepower and 210 pound-feet (285 Nm) of torque.

In 1997, Honda replaced that with a 3.2-liter unit (C32B) boasting 290 horsepower and an automatic version with 252 horses.

Several limited-edition models have emerged over the decades: the Type S, NSX-R, and the NSX-R GT, and an Alex Zanardi Edition to celebrate his CART IndyCar championship wins for Honda in 1997 and 1998.

Honda sold 9,700 of the Acura NSX over 16 years, with the original model now a six-figure classic.
