Number 1: Acura NSX (Generation 1)

What Acura, well Honda, did with the first-generation NSX was amazing. At a time when supercars were wholly unreliable machines, Honda went and made one that could be driven daily. Some people seriously get a couple hundred thousand miles on these cars, and that’s a spit in the face to many European supercar automakers.

The first-gen NSX made 270 hp and 210 lb-ft of torque from a 3.0-liter V6. Over the course of the generation’s run, power was increased and engine size enlarged, making this already quick car, seriously fast. 0-60 mph time at its peak was around 4.5-seconds.

The NSX didn’t have the reputation that other supercars did, but its performance was on the same level as a Ferrari or Lamborghini. It did so at a much lower starting price, and it was much more reliable than any other supercar out there. For many, this is top car of the 1990s.
