The legendary Honda NSX (standing for New Sportscar Experimental) was developed by the Honda Motor Corporation between 1984 and its eventual launch in 1990, with major chassis and suspension input from three times F1 World Champion, Ayrton Senna.
The NSX featured a state of the art 3.0-litre V6 ‘VTEC’ engine (variable valve timing) and an all-aluminium monocoque body, encompassing a revolutionary extruded aluminium alloy frame and suspension. This made the car extremely light and extremely strong. Other game-changing features included 4 channel ABS brakes, titanium connecting rods in the engine and later in the model’s life – an electric power steering system as well as an upgrade to a 3.2-litre V6 engine. The car was the first real Japanese ‘Supercar’, proving itself and quickly establishing respect from its key competitors. Production continued right up until 2005, with only subtle changes made throughout its life.
Finished in Kaiser Silver Metallic with contrasting Black Leather, this beautiful example was supplied new in 1997 to its first UK owner, specified with the more desirable manual gearbox.
In the intervening years the NSX has been serviced regularly by Honda main dealers, with a total of twenty services recorded, the last being in the last 1000 miles by Honda in Surrey.
This is a lovely example of what is now regarded as a true modern classic, with good history and a bright future in the market.
