FOR SALE: Japanís first Supercar // Fantastic Formula Red and black roof
LHD, 5 speed manual, Formula Red with black roof, Air conditioning, Electric seats, Electric mirrors, Cruise control, Bose Sound system.
The NSX is low and dramatic with its bold paintwork in Formula Red, accentuating the aerodynamic aesthetics of the car. The integrated spoiler, pop-up lights and side vents cut into the side of the body give a smooth feel to the body, sculpted with aerodynamic efficiency in mind and devoid of unnecessary detail.
The paintwork of this NSX presents beautifully with barely a blemish to report. The black roof is also very clean, providing a dramatic contrast to the body. The seals around the doors and roof itself are also pleasingly free of wear.
Jumping inside the interior of the NSX was a far cry from supercars of the time. Although still a very low sports car, the Honda boasted excellent visibility, great sight lines and an interior that proved that supercars and ergonomics can go together. There is very little wear to the interior to report, the leather is smooth and the seats comfortable and supportive. The trim surrounding the centre console is immaculate and the control interface well laid out.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Honda were on great form when they engineered the NSX powerplant, fusing Honda reliability with motorsport technology and exotic materials. With a capacity of 2.977 litres, the mid-transverse mounted V6 revved to a heady 8000 rpm. The engine benefited from many lightweight components, such as titanium connecting rods which helped achieve that banshee rev limit.
On test drive, the engine feels fit and athletic, with a pure and sharp naturally aspirated feel to the throttle response. It also presents beautifully, showing little signs of wear, aesthetic or otherwise.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The wheels on this example are a 5 spoke design and finished in silver. There are no marks or blemishes to report and they present as new. The tyres are Yokohama A-022 in a period sized 205/50/15 on the front and 225/50/16 on the rear. On test drive the brakes on this example work well, shedding speed confidently.
