1999 Honda NSX NA2 3.2 6 Speed Manual | $1.5M HKD




Japan's first modern supercar, the high-tech Honda NSX was introduced in 1989 to a rapturous reception, before going on sale to the public the following year. The NSX was a real lightweight thanks to the extensive use of aluminium, and still assembled by hand in a land where mass production was the norm.


Famously developed with input from Ayrton Senna and endorsed as ‘monumental’ by Gordon Murray, the Honda NSX was, and still is, an automotive legend. Murray even purchased and drove one on a daily basis, which he described as being, ‘very dear to his heart’. The beauty of the NSX was not a headline-grabbing top speed or a colossal power output, but rather the expertly balanced combination of its chassis and powertrain. It is the byword for a useable and approachable supercar, and as such is all but immune to the passing of time and progression of technology.


Powering the NSX was a real jewel of an engine, a DOHC 90-degree V6 drawing from Honda's long racing heritage. Mounted transversely, the all-alloy unit could rev safely to 8000 rpm - something achieved with titanium rods - but was docile enough to pull cleanly from 1000 rpm, making the NSX a pleasure to drive around town.


Inside, the NSX showcased Honda's renowned ergonomics, albeit with higher grade materials and plenty of technology - for example electric seats and climate control were standard - and combined a supremely comfortable driving position with cleverly thought out controls. The cockpit set new benchmarks for supercars and unquestionably caused competitors like Ferrari and Porsche to lift their game.


In 2005, after 16 years of production, Honda finally pulled the plug on this first-generation NSX, ending a remarkable chapter in the history of Japanese engineering. The NSX proven remarkably trouble free from a maintenance point of view, its V6 engine being totally reliable and capable of doing big mileage without any issues. Values of the NSX have also held up remarkably well, and they are, without doubt, now regarded as a sought-after modern classic.
