Beschreibung

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 very 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.

We are obliged to inform potential purchasers of this car, that at some point in the past, it was declared "Category D" by an insurance company.

This particular NSX is a 1999 right-hand drive, UK Supplied, 3.2Litre, 6-speed manual car with the desirable 'pop-up' headlights. We understand that it's one of two 1999 cars painted in Imola Orange Pearl and as the other one is an automatic, then this is the only manual car disporting this dramatic shade.

'T000013' is presented here with a meticulously documented service history fully backing up the 51,000 miles currently reading on the odometer. Indeed, at the time of writing the car is at Chiswick Honda for a full service and will be sold with a fresh MoT. The vendor has reported that the wheels are not original, but are the correct size, however, in our opinion they are striking and flatter the car, as does the distinctive paint colour which suits the lines of this NSX really well. The overall condition of the vehicle is very, very good with the brilliant paint finish looking unmarked and the sort of 'shut lines' you might expect when Honda produce a 'show-off' car. The interior is excellent, subtle in black throughout with an exciting dashboard, and the presentation of the whole car belies its mileage. A rather appropriate and exclusive registration 'T99 NSX' will remain attached to the car, along with a Bluetooth and I-pod connectivity stereo, that's been upgraded internally and works very well.

This is a UK, right-hand-drive, 3.2, six-speed car and there are perhaps only a dozen or so on the road in this combination. Given the rarity of this distinctive vehicle, and the fact that the new NSX is coming out this year, there will be a certain amount of focus on the earlier cars, and bearing in mind that they have always been undervalued as a 'supercar', what a great opportunity to own a topical, good-looking, fast and collectable classic.
