There's a guy at the Hampton VA center with a yellow one just like yours. The NSX to me is one of the under rated exotics. It's alloy body screams top shelf.

The NSX is a jack of all trades, master of none. Wheelbase too big for autocross, engine too small for a full circuit.

I've always liked the NSX. Supercar performance and looks, Honda reliability. How can you do any better? Wish Honda would come out with a competitor for the GT/R.

Yeah, I agree. Underpowered, overpriced but looked sexy in it's day

Got to agree with both of you mates. This Acura looks awesome. The only disadvantage on this car is the availability of Acura parts in the market I think. Well of course because its rare. I mean there are parts on it that are not usually available on small parts shops. If you know what I mean. Just a guess.

I've got to agree that the NSX is a very sharp looking vechile! My preferance runs toward the R33 GTR or a fairlady TT. I know the fairlady is not in the same class of vehicles, but I do appriciate its lines.
