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 would help 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.

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

NSX Club Europe Tour 2014

Whether it wears an Acura or a Honda badge, the admiration and passion for the NSX is worldwide. While the number of NSX owners may not be as strong on the European side, the love for this machine is still definitely present.

NSX Club Europe recently brought together 33 NSXs from all over the continent, and that’s a huge turnout from their perspective. But this was not your typical meet up, this was a carefully planned three day tour that took them to three countries, two legendary race tracks and the Autobahn.

Here’s how it went down:

“The route we set out would take us to Spa-Francorchamps, where the Spa Classic was held An event where all kind of race cars from bygone times would meet and go head to head again. From there we would drive to our hotel in Luxemburg. On Saturday a navigated drive to the Nurburgring was planned. On the (in)famous track, a VLN race was held. On the agenda for Sunday where long Autobahn straights, directly to Europe’s biggest Honda gathering, HondaFest. With these ingredients on the table, NSX owners from all over Europe started to subscribe. 10 from The Netherlands, 9 from the United Kingdom, 4 from Norway, 2 from Austria, France and Luxemburg, and one from Belgium, Croatia and Switzerland. And we were honored to welcome five special guests from Japan, of which the President of the NSX Club of Japan, Hirofumi Tomiyoshi.” - NSX Club Europe
