27. 1990 Honda NSX
Yes, there’s a Honda on this list. Although it’s more well known for its time as an Acura. The first generation sports car started as an Italian concept car called the HP-X in 1984. Its inspiration was the Ferrari 328 and 348, but Honda wanted better performance at a lower price. It was the first production car to have an all-aluminum semi-monocoque, which dropped a remarkable 441 pounds of weight versus using steel. It debuted in Chicago and Tokyo in 1989. Its manufacturers were particularly proud of its 23-step paint process to give it a striking top color – usually red.
