I’m assuming that you are talking about an NSX
The 91 was the first year and came with a 3.0 liter engine with 270 hp or 250 ish in an Auto. It did come with traction control.

In 97+ the 6 speed came with a 3.2 liter engine with 290 hp
It’s all in the FAQ
I have no idea what gold key is and find it strange that a 91 would only have 5K miles on it.

Regards,

Patrick

He may have seen the "titanium" key that was available for some model years (and not really titanium but a certain metal mixture that is also described in the FAQ.

Yes. Look in the NSX FAQ (answers to Frequently Asked Questions) under General Info - NSX Keys. The metal key came with the car for '91-96. It was discontinued in '97 because it could not contain the chip needed for the immobilizer system introduced that year.

You can access the NSX FAQ by clicking on the word FAQ in the red bar at the top of your screen, the one that looks like this:
