I was 19 when they came out, haven't left my top wish list since.

Calling it a supercar or not I don't know. Na's are a little pedestrian to drive, like a really low accord that handles amazing. But the lovefab nsx has 920whp, does that count?

Interior is gorgeous, even the seats are perfect. Driver's window sticks in the track. A few scuffs, otherwise its great.

I have a freind with a red one, and I've run 1-lap at an auto-x in it. I thought it was really cool, and I'd love to get one on the track.

Get te-37's for it, exhuast, and supsension and you have a bad *** car.

They are a super car in my opinon. I think for the original price they should of had more power. But it is a beautiful car.

Everyone may feel differant. But that is like a corvette. YOU DON'T BUY IT TO ABUSE! You buy it to look good, and go fast every once and a while.

You buy a miata and put a turbo on it to race. Or a camero or Mustang.

I'm not usually a honda fan. But that car is timeless and a serious piece of history. I don't think you will ever lose any money on it. I think it will just start going up. This is a nice time to get into one.

I like to go fast and look good. THERE IS NO WAY I WOULD SELL THOSE RIMS!

If you want some race rims, just buy extra's. If you are not driving it much. I would look good while rolling. Those rims were of very good taste. And I bet EXPENSIVE.

Nice Buy!

I would go with the Comptech supercharger over a turbo.

**** that. I know a guy with a single-turbo NSX and it's ******* fantastic. I'd love to own an NSX one day; the two I've ridden in have easily been the most collected, solid 15-year old cars I've ever been in.

I was thinking about this thread yesterday..

IIRC the NSX was limited in BHP because of the Japanese "gentleman's agreement" that they wouldn't make more than xxx amount, somewhere just shy of 300. This is one reason why the old Skylines, RX7, EVO, STi, NSX, etc. were all (at least rated) so close together on BHP. The NSX is more expensive than the others because of it's chassis, I think.

Fortunately/unfortunately I will be drawing parts from a collection of used parts. I had my choice of three clutches. Thanks for the offer!

That red one is HILARIOUS.

I think I am going to stick with what I've got. Did I mention the turbo option?

With something like an NSX I almost feel like you should be going for 500+hp or not even bother. So go big, and take a video of it.

I once saw one in Hong Kong in a metallic gray color rolling down the street with an aftermarket exhaust and it sounded like pure sex.

How much power that car has(especially from the factory) is irrelevant.

Congrats on the buy, and enjoy it.

Congrats on the purchase, the NSX is a fine automobile. They can be interesting to drive on track.
