All fixed-headlight NSXs benefit from a host of upgrades that Acura bestowed on the venerable mid-engined sportscar. That means more ponies under the hood, a wider rear track, a revised anti-roll bar for better handling, and improved aerodynamics for a higher top speed. Of course, Acura has only improved upon a winning formula, and the tractable V6 still barks ferociously right behind the driver’s head, the silky shifter still swaps gears with a flick of the wrist, and the all-aluminum coupe will leap forward with vigor as you approach the 7,500 RPM redline. It’s clear that the NSX manages to give supercar performance with none of the drawbacks, preserving drivability and livability in a single stunning package.
— Official description [1]

The 2005 Acura NSX is a RWD sports car by Acura featured in Forza Motorsport and all subsequent Xbox 360 Motorsport titles.


Powered by an all-aluminum V6 engine, featuring Honda's VTEC system. The NSX was produced from 1990-2005. The NSX was the first production car to feature an aluminum body, and an aluminum alloy frame and suspension. The NSX was originally designed to compete with Ferrari's 328, and to offer consumers a more affordable taste of mid-engine performance.

The 2005 Acura NSX features a 3.2L V6, which produces 290 horsepower and 225 lb-ft torque. The 2005 NSX is part of the second generation (2002-2005) of Honda's NSX line. The second generation NSX featured xenon HID headlights, in place of the pop-up halogen headlamps of earlier models. In addition, the second generation featured slightly wider tires to complement a revised suspension, which makes for a very forgiving vehicle on the track, even for a less experienced driver.


The NSX accelerates quickly with the aid of the short gears and healthy torque curve. Like it's predecessor, the 1997 Acura NSX, gear placement is critical when accelerating, with best results coming in above 5500 RPMs.

Grip is immense, with oversteer occuring less frequently than it's younger brother, thanks to a revised rear suspension and wider tires. However, this softer rear suspension does result in a decreased turn in ability than it's predecessor, and is therefore less able to take slower corners as efficiently as the 1997 Acura NSX.

Braking is sufficient, but sometimes requires early braking in order to increase turn in. Sometimes, oversteer can occur if the brakes are applied in the middle of cornering.

The car likes to be launched at 4000 RPMs on normal tracks, and off the rev limiter at the Sedona Raceway Park Drag Strips.
