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. In 1984, Honda commissioned the
Italian car designer Pininfarina to design the HPX (Honda
Pininfarina Xperimental), which had a mid-mounted 2.0 litre, V6
configuration. Following Honda's decision to pursue the project,
the management informed the 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 eXperimental).
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° visibility inside an F-16 fighter jet. The car's strong
chassis rigidity and handling capabilities were the results of
Ayrton Senna's input with NSX's chief engineers while testing the
prototype car at Honda's Suzuka Circuit during the development
stages. Today, the 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 without serious
reliability issues.

This NSX, finished in silver with a black leather interior, is
in fabulous condition; it is showing very little signs of wear.
With just over 60,000 warranted miles, it was purchased in Japan by
the current owner. It has recently been subject to a service and
full health check with specialists Brookspeed of Eastleigh and
comes supplied with a valid MoT test certificate valid until
October 2017. This mid-engined NSX is currently kept by the owner
in a warmed garage and is described as fabulous to drive. It
represents, not only a chance for some exciting motoring but also a
great long-term potential investment especially with the new NSX
now on UK roads revitalising their evocative
nature.
