2. Acura NSX
Revived second generation NSX is just around the corner and it’s expected to hit 60 mph in 3 seconds flat or thereabouts thanks to its hybrid powertrain. First generation models of the nineties and early two thousands weren’t that fast though as they didn’t break into below-5 seconds area before 1997. ’94 NSX was the fastest pre-97 model with 0 to 60 time of 5.2 seconds which is still slower than a Taurus SHO. Better sprint times were achieved by engine replacement when old 3.0L V6 was succeeded by slightly stronger 3.2L V6 unit in already mentioned 1997.
