Footnotes

  • Honda's first supercar, the NSX set new standards for the class on its arrival in 1989, possessing the expected stupendous performance while remaining as civilised and easy to drive as the average family hatchback. The Japanese manufacturer had first signalled its intentions back in 1984 when it displayed the Pininfarina-designed HP-X concept car, yet few would have believed that its first attempt at building a Ferrari-beater would prove so successful. Honda was already committed to Formula 1, supplying engines to the all-conquering McLarens of Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, and was able to call on the latter to assist in developing the NSX, which is the only road car ever to benefit from the Brazilian maestro's expertise. The result was a car that wowed the motoring press when the scribes first got their hands on a pre-production prototype in the summer of 1989.

    Despite being developed during F1's turbo era, the NSX's 24-valve 3.0-litre V6 engine was normally aspirated. Equipped with the new VTEC variable valve timing system, the all-alloy unit produced 270bhp initially, which was good enough for a top speed of 270km/h and a 0-100km/h time of around six seconds. Those performance figures put the NSX on a par with Ferrari's 348 GTB, but in terms of comfort, ergonomics, driving dynamics and build quality, the NSX was in a different league entirely. Sadly, this superiority was not translated into sales, and by the time production ceased in 2005, fewer than 20,000 NSXs had been sold.

    A desirable pop-up headlamp model (later versions had fixed lamps) this NSX is finished in its original Formula Red livery with black leather interior. The car was sold new in Trimbach, France on 29th July 1995. Currently displaying a total of only 23,092 kilometres on the odometer, it is described by the vendor as in good original condition and comes with a detailed evaluation reaching the same conclusion. The most recent service was carried out by Gourdin Honda on 15th May 2018. Accompanying documentation includes an cancelled French registration document (2008), the original service book, and extensive historical records.

    La première supercar de Honda, la NSX, établissait de nouvelles références pour sa catégorie lorsqu'elle fut dévoilée en 1989, offrant des performances exceptionnelles, tout en restant aussi civilisée et facile à conduire qu'une berline familiale. Le constructeur japonais avait affiché ses intentions dès 1984, lorsqu'il avait exposé le concept car HP-X dessiné par Pininfarina, mais bien peu avait imaginé que cette première tentative pour concurrencer Ferrari allait s'avérer aussi réussie. Honda était déjà engagé en Formule 1, fournissant des moteurs aux imbattables McLaren d'Alain Prost et d'Ayrton Senna, et avait pu compter sur l'expérience de ce dernier pour mettre au point la NSX, qui est la seule voiture de série à avoir profité de l'expertise du pilote brésilien. Le résultat était un modèle qui enthousiasma la presse automobile lorsqu'elle put prendre le volant d'un prototype de pré-production au cours de l'été 1989.

    Bien que développée en pleine période turbo de la F1, le V6 3 litres à 24 soupapes de la NSX était du type atmosphérique. Équipée du nouveau système de distribution variable VTEC, le bloc tout alliage développait à l'origine 270 ch qui assuraient une vitesse maximale de 270 km/h et un 0 à 100 km/h en six secondes environ. Ces performances mettaient la NSX à égalité avec la 348 GTB de Ferrari, mais en ce qui concernait le confort, l'ergonomie, la dynamique et la qualité de construction, la NSX jouait dans une toute autre catégorie. Malheureusement, cette supériorité ne se traduisit pas en termes de ventes et, lorsque la production prit fin en 2005, moins de 20 000 NSX avaient été vendues.

    Cette NSX, un séduisant modèle à phares rétractables (les versions ultérieures avaient des phares fixes), conserve sa livrée d'origine rouge Formula avec intérieur en cuir noir. La voiture a été vendue neuve à Trimbach, en France le 29 juillet 1995. Affichant actuellement un total de seulement 23 092 kilomètres au compteur, elle est décrite par le vendeur comme en bon état d'origine et est accompagnée d'une expertise détaillée qui arrive à la même conclusion. La dernière révision a été effectuée par Gourdin Honda le 15 mai 2018. La documentation fournie comprend les papiers d'immatriculation française périmée (2008), le carnet d'entretien et un historique complet.
