Description

The Honda NSX was produced between 1990 and 2005 and is equipped with a mid-engined, rear wheel drive layout powered by an all-aluminium V6 featuring Honda’s Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) system – all of the ingredients for genuine supercar credentials.

In 1984, Honda commissioned the Italian car designer, Pininfarina, to design the HPX which had a mid-mounted 2.0 litre, V6 configuration. Following Honda’s decision to pursue the project, they informed their engineers that the new car would have to be as good as anything coming from both Italy and Germany. The HPX concept car evolved into the NSX (New Sportscar eXperiemental).

The original performance target for the NSX was the Ferrari 328, subsequently revised to the 348 as the design neared completion. The bodywork design had been specifically researched after studying the 360 degree visibility inside an M6 fighter jet. The car’s strong chassis rigidity and handling capabilities were the result of Ayrton Senna’s input with the NSX’s chief engineers while testing the prototype car at Honda’s Suzuka Circuit during the development stages.

Today, the Honda NSX is still considered by owners of the marque as one of the most reliable exotic cars ever manufactured with many examples comfortably exceeding 100,000 miles with reliability issues.

Our example is a desirable UK-supplied manual edition which was first registered on 27th February 1995 and specified in yellow with a contrasting roof and black leather interior: both still in fantastic condition. One of the most recent owners was a Honda fanatic who lavished money on this NSX and sympathetically upgraded the car aesthetically. But, importantly, no performance upgrades have been added so we believe this car is largely standard.

The style upgrades include expensive split rim alloy wheels and an equally expensive and very well-installed satellite navigation pod to the interior for which invoices can be found within the excellent history file.

Supplied with the original book pack, the service booklet shows 16 stamps, constituting a full service record; 11 from Honda main dealers until 67,492 miles and since from specialists including Japtech in Hull.

A car that is rightfully a desirable collector’s item but also a fantastic driver’s example especially with a manual gearbox.
