In 1994, Quentin Tarrantino broke new ground with his post-modernistic film "Pulp Fiction." Perhaps the quintessential Tarrantino movie, it's almost universally thought to be a modern classic. Ranked high in the IMDB 250 list, "Pulp Fiction" deserves a lot of credit for pushing the limits of modern film with its edgy creativity.
The Acura NSX made its film debut in "Pulp Fiction." In a familiar scene, underworld "problem-solver" Winston Wolfe is seen speeding off to breakfast in his silver 1992 NSX. This caught the eyes of many who weren't quite familiar with Acura's latest sports car.
Two years prior to the release of "Pulp fiction," Acura introduced the NSX: an exotic, high performance sports car that was significantly more affordable than any other exotic on the market. It established a new segment in luxury that was previously non-existent.
The Acura NSX was a true anomaly when it arrived. Its specs on paper are pedestrian: The '92 NSX featured a 3.0-liter V6 270hp engine with a 5-speed manual transmission. Yet, because of its extraordinary engineering, it could go toe-to-toe with a 400hp Ferrari. The other dynamic that made the NSX so unique; it was so user friendly - no more difficult to drive then a Honda Accord.
The Acura NSX has a loyal following, and is similarly beloved just like the film it was first featured in. Even today they hold their value. Just look at how much an NSX's are going for on ebay. Remember, they never cost more than 89K.
