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.
This particular NSX was an original UK-supplied right-hand drive car by then, Honda Main Dealer, Two Mills Honda of South Wirral, on 29th September 2001. Finished in striking Circuit Blue with a black leather interior, other options included; perforated leather electric seats, air-conditioning, cruise control, 6 CD changer and headlight washers.

Being a 2001 car, it is thought to have been one of only 8 NSXs delivered in the UK that year, making it one of the last 'pop-up' headlight cars before the model received a front-end facelift in 2002. This example also benefits from having the larger 3.2-litre V6 engine, married to a 6-speed manual gearbox, and larger brakes.
After much searching, our vendor purchased this stunning car in October '12 and in his ownership has had KW V3 adjustable coil-over suspension fitted - costing in excess £1,200. A full stainless steel exhaust system was also fitted and the front bumper has also been resprayed to rid it of the inevitable stone chips.
A UK V5c and an MoT until 29th April 2016 are present and the car is supplied with 3 original keys, a folder of MoTs & invoices, and the complete NSX book pack containing drivers manuals & the service book. Open the boot and there is a full complement of tools and the tyre inflator. Wearing the apt registration plate 'N5 XLM' this NSX offers supercar collectors the opportunity to own a well maintained and striking car.
