Honda NSX Type-S | N/A


The legendary Honda NSX (standing for New Sportscar Experimental) was developed by the Honda Motor Corporation between 1984 and its eventual launch in 1990, with major chassis and suspension input from three times F1 World Champion, Ayrton Senna. The NSX featured a state of the art 3.0-litre V6 'VTEC' engine (variable valve timing) and an all-aluminium monocoque body, encompassing a revolutionary extruded aluminium alloy frame and suspension. This made the car extremely light and extremely strong. Other game-changing features included 4-channel ABS brakes, titanium connecting rods in the engine and, later in the model's life, an electric power steering system and a 3.2-litre V6 engine. The car was the first real Japanese 'Supercar', proving itself and quickly establishing respect from its key competitors. Production continued right up until 2005, with only subtle changes made throughout its life.

For those unaware the NSX Type S ever existed would be excused. Released exclusively for the Japanese domestic market in limited numbers of 248 the chances of seeing one in the flesh are really very slim. This special edition has often been described as the perfect mix between the regular NSX and the ultra-hardcore NSX-R. Blending everyday driving with Lightweight and a more focused driving experience, in other words, a more refined Type R. With the more muscular 3.2-litre V6 and pre-facelift pop-up headlights, look to offer the greatest mix of tradition and power, retaining the look of the original but with 290hp. The 200cc-larger mid-mounted V6 benefitted from thinner cylinder liners to increase capacity and a freer-flowing exhaust.

This particular NSX is incredibly rare and one of only 248 cars produced exclusively for the Japanese home market. The NSX Type-S featured a 3.2-litre engine mated to a desirable 6-speed manual gearbox and pushing out a reported 290 bhp. The Type-S featured a high specification cockpit to including a Titanium gear-knob, a Momo steering wheel, Recaro full-bucket carbon-kevlar seats, Alcantara and leather seats, beautiful stitching around the dashboard, mesh design engine cover (similar to that of the Type-R), and a coloured roof. The suspension was also stiffer than the standard Honda NSX. This car is finished in Yellow with Pearl Finish with a body coloured roof and a black/black interior which looks absolutely stunning.

Originally delivered in Japan in 1997 to Best Motoring's "GAN-san", Japanese Race Driver Motoharu Kurosawa (黒沢元治). First imported and registered in Hong Kong in 2017, this car is supplied with a solid history file from Japan documenting its service intervals. Since residing in Hong Kong, it has been maintained annually, is now showing just 30,832KM.

This is Honda's "GT3 Touring" equivalent, with increased power, good handling, manual gearbox and most importantly no deletion of creature comforts making it a very useable supercar.
