Just look at that beautiful NSX in Curva Red!
More than six months after production of the much-awaited Acura/Honda NSX started at the Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio, U.S., an example of the car was delivered to a European customer. Already available in Australia and America, and scheduled for first customer delivery in Japan on February 27 next year, the NSX reached the Old continent with a striking Curva Red body paint.
In Monaco, Taku Kasahara, branch president of Honda Motor Europe France, handed the keys of the supercar to its new owner, Honda ambassador Claude Sage who is also the founder and former CEO of Honda Switzerland, and a member of the Honda NSX & Sportscar Club.
“The new NSX truly belongs to the modern sports car segment, through the use of technology and rich Japanese origin. It follows the first NSX perfectly,” Sage commented receiving his new NSX.
Sage is also known for his role as a development driver for the first generation NSX, and was involved in the development of the HP-X Prototype in Turin and Tochigi, Japan, before the project evolved into a production car.
Currently the most expensive car manufactured in the United States, the NSX managed to fetch no less than $1.2 million at an auction in January this year – and all the money have been directed towards the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground.
The very-first second generation NSX was bought by another petrolhead, NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick who also owns the first 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 Coupe, 2014 Corvette, 2012 Camaro ZL1 ($250,000), and the last BMW M5 30 Jahre.
The new NSX carries a starting price of $156,000 MSRP in United States. For that price you get a “deliciously fast, properly growly, and impossibly pretty” car, as our managing editor Steven Ewing described the car in his second test drive.
