Description

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 Sebring Silver Metallic with contrasting Black Leather, this beautiful three owner example was supplied from new in 2001 by UK dealer John Cooper Honda of Worthing. The NSX was specified with a rare and desirable removable Targa roof, and 6-speed manual gearbox. In the intervening years the NSX has been serviced regularly by either Honda dealers or specialists, with a total of seven services recorded, the last being in 2017 at 11,570 miles by Honda of Derby.

This is an investment quality example of what is now regarded as a true modern classic, and certainly the best example that we have seen.
