The first is the colour: Imola Orange Pearl. This is a very rare colour, only available in the UK on later NSXs, and only with black leather. Merely six cars were sold in this gorgeous, dramatic colour. (Three coupes and three targas).
The best colour is naturally a thing of personal preference, but it’s interesting to note that Honda UK chose this colour for the pre-facelift NA2 3.2 NSX sales brochure. The Honda marketing people liked it and thought this was the best way to present an NSX. Also, Honda’s current ‘heritage’ press car, MY05 NSX, is in Imola Orange Pearl.
More copper coloured than orange, I really like the way the colour changes depending on the light - the pictures show this, but still don’t do it justice. If you have never seen one in person, I would urge you to do so. One thing is for sure – if you buy this car you are most unlikely to park next to another one!
I hate the usual motor trade and the usual motor trade adverts: When I read, “This car really turns heads”, I normally translate that into “people who see you will think you’re a twat”. However, I have driven this car for a few days, as part of our detailed preparation process, to make sure - like all our cars – it is completely faultless. It’s been a pleasure to drive in the sunshine with the roof off and the windows down. And it does turn heads: Appreciating, knowledgeable, ones.
The second exceptional thing is that this car was built in 2001: But it feels not just like a new car, but also a modern car. That’s the outstanding thing about the Honda NSX. It was so far ahead of its time that even now, seventeen years later, it’s easy to forget that it’s a classic car, not a modern one.
Also, it’s remarkable how well an NSX copes with mileage. This car has covered 97,000 miles – but feels like 20,000 when you drive it. The 3.2 engine is perfect and the six-speed gearbox is super-smooth. Everything works as it should. This doesn’t happen by chance. Honda’s engineers evaluated all aspects of advanced automotive technology before evolving a design approach and created the ideal solution, independent from marketing and finance. Then Honda built the cars in a dedicated manufacturing facility where quality was paramount.
I was one of those nerdy kids that read car magazines and pressed my nose up against car showroom windows. Since then I have been lucky to drive many of my childhood dream cars. Most of them - now twenty years old with high mileage - are a huge disappointment. They are just shit. But not the NSX: A genuine timeless car that’s a joy to own and to drive. Buy one.
The registration V6 NSX (possibly the best registration for an NSX, both classic and new) is available by separate negotiation.
