Acura NSX Passes 388,888 Miles

“In today’s recall hit world, talking about a sportscar than can play well into the six-figure odometer zone without any major technical issues sounds like a sci-fi story. Well, things like this do actually happen, it’s just that we have to look into the past, not the future.”- Andrei Tutu, autoevolution

Flashback Friday: Perfecting the NSX

Posted by   on August 1st, 2014 No comments

Ayrton Senna NSX Prototype

If you consider the HP-X (Honda Pininfarina Xperimental) concept car in 1984 as the starting point of the NSX, it took Honda 6 years to turn their vision into reality. Perfection takes time, but it were those long years of development, testing, and even failures that helped to define the NSX as an engineering icon.

In this video flashback from the late ’80s, legendary Formula One World Champion Ayrton Senna takes an NSX prototype around Suzuka Circuit for testing. His direct input and collaboration with Honda engineers would eventually help to fine-tune the NSX’s driving characteristics to perfection.

Source 1 Automotive Widebody NSX

Here are some amazing shots of Source 1 Automotive’s widebody NSX photographed by OJS Design. Apparently these photos were supposed to go to print, but with the recent closure of Honda Tuning Magazine the only way you’ll get to see them is online.

“Well, Here is the final rendition of the car. This shoot was done a day before the car was dismantled. These shots have been on hold to be released as they were for an issue of Honda Tuning Magazine coming out in a couple months but now that the magazine is closed my photographer sent them to me to share… Huge thank you to: LoveFab, Inc. CCW Forged Wheels KW suspensions Umbrella Auto Design FX Motorsports Development Toyo Tires Downforce USA Seibon Carbon Kirkey Racing Fabrication Inc. Sparco Acura Hygh Octane For the amazing parts that made this car special.” - Source 1 Automotive
