11K-Mile 2005 Acura NSX-T Rio Yellow

PCARMARKET is proud to present for auction this 2005 Acura NSX-T 6-Speed from the esteemed Newport Car Museum. According to production records, just 240 manual-transmission NSXs were built for the U.S. market during the 2005 model year (the final year of production). The last six digits of this car's VIN, 000241, suggests that it is likely one of the very last of the first-generation NSXs, and is said to have been built under the stipulation that it be used for display purposes only. Acquired in 2017 and representing one of just six cars finished in Rio Yellow over a yellow leather interior, this 2005 NSX-T is being offered for sale by its owner out of Portsmouth, RI with 11,017-miles showing on the odometer. 

The Rio Yellow finish is described by the seller as being in excellent condition throughout, detailed images can be seen in the image gallery. The later NA2 NSXs are distinguished by fixed xenon headlights, side air intakes, integrated rear spoiler, and a painted removable roof panel that can be stored under the rear hatch glass. Factory 17” forged chrome wheels surround calipers finished in gold with NSX branding. The wheels are wrapped in 215/40/17 front, and 255/40/17 rear, Yokohama Advan Neova tires.

The interior, like the exterior, is described by the seller as being in excellent condition. Power-adjustable seats trimmed in yellow leather with black carpets, dashboard, center console, and black and yellow door panels show in excellent condition. Amenities include NSX-branded floor mats, automatic climate control, and cruise control. An aftermarket Pioneer head unit is installed along with a Passport Radar Detector System. All electric features and gauges are said to be functioning correctly.

The mid-mounted 3.2 L C32B V6 features VTEC variable valve timing rated at 290 HP and 224 lb-ft of torque. Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transaxle with a limited-slip differential. This NSX is said to be up-to-date on mechanical maintenance.

Included in this sale will be two sets of keys, original spare tire, a clean title and a CARFAX report. This is an incredibly unique chance to own perhaps the last of the legendary first-generation U.S.-spec NSXs.

    @Gunther911 .If you don't put out paint meter readings you are costing yourself thousands of dollars in potential bids. The car will bring good money with the proper assurance on paint it will bring great money.

    @jukngene The listing description has been updated to specify 240 manual transmission cars for 2005. This particular NSX still remains one of the very last examples built per the chassis number.

  • jukngene 6 days, 13 hoursago

    The listing description is partially incorrect. There were 248 2005 NSX's built for the US: 240 with manual 6-speed transmissions, and 8 with automatics. So number 241 is NOT the last built for the US in 2005. See the NSX Prime Wiki: https://www.nsxprime.com/wiki/Production_Numbers

  • Gunther911 (seller) 6 days, 14 hoursago

    @SofiaLeo Ha! We had a gauge that somehow didn’t work on the all Aluminium body of the NSX. Getting another this week that hopefully will work, but check my other post about accidents

  • SofiaLeo (registered bidder) 6 days, 14 hoursago

    @Gunther911 When are you going to post pictures of the paint meter readings? Thank you

  • Gunther911 (seller) 6 days, 14 hoursago

    @SofiaLeo The car has been on display off and on in the Newport Car Museum since we acquired it. We also have a blue one so that’s why we are selling it. We don’t need two. ( maybe a mistake?) So no accidents while we have had it. The prior owner’ Carfax does not show any accidents, so I do not think it has ever been involved in an accident.

  • SofiaLeo (registered bidder) 6 days, 14 hoursago

    @Gunther911 NICE NSX! Has your car ever been in any accidents or had any type of paint work? Thank you

  • Mk 1 weekago

    Completely agree with posters asking for paint meter readings, where is the window sticker, service history, if this was a museum piece it should include every single thing possible. Someone’s obviously buying this with some driving in mind but also potential investment in mind and I tire of people selling cars and then we have to keep asking for the same thing over and over, at least this is not a manual 997 where we are all asking for DME reports

    Is the paint all original? Can you provide paint meter readings?

  • Gunther911 (seller) 1 week, 5 daysago

    This car was not for sale at Sunnyside Acura recently. It has been in the Newport Car Museum collection for over 3 years. Like all of the NCM cars, it is not just a driver quality car. Hope this is helpful in clearing up the confusion.

  • Carguy48 1 week, 5 daysago

    I looked at this when it was for sale at Sunnyside Acura a few months ago. Was not what I expected with only 11k miles. Dealer did a lot of mechanical maintenance. Not sure what’s been done since present owner bought it. Driver quality car when I saw it.
