Which used Honda NSX coupe should I buy?

There aren't many choices to be made with the NSX. There are two petrol engines, either a 252bhp 3.0-litre V6 or a 3.2-litre V6 that gives 276bhp.

Both are suitably fast. The smaller-engined NSX will cover the 0-60mph sprint in 7.5sec, but the more powerful 3.2-litre manages the same benchmark sprint in a rather more useful 5.7sec.

The 3.2 is definitely our pick and that isn't just because of the outright speed. The 3.0-litre engine comes only with an automatic gearbox, and although it isn't bad, you need the 3.2's standard manual 'box to get the proper supercar experience.

There's one more choice to be made, and that's whether you have a coupe or an open-top; the cabriolet will cost you a little bit more. Whichever you choose, your NSX will come with a good amount of kit. You'll get alloys, air-con, leather upholstery, traction control, electric windows and cruise control.
