HJA bring you this exceptional Honda NSX fresh in from Japan. It doesn’t get much better than this, Grade 4, no accident history with genuine kilometres from new all backed with full service history.

Our specialist team hand picks the highest quality vehicles available in Japan. So when they came across this they immediately informed us this is one to get! In spite of all the top dealers in Japan trying to get hold of the car, we were fortunate enough to be able to secure and bring it over to the U.K.

First impressions the bodywork is practically flawless, garaged all of its life and constantly pampered. It really has been cherished by its owner in Japan. It has all the original panels and being a Grade 4 it has no repair history, it’s rare to find an original straight example such as this. The paintwork has a deep gloss and reflects like a mirror.

As you would expect from an NSX of this standard it drives beautifully it’s amazing to think this was designed in the 90’s it still feels and handles like a true race car.

The now iconic C30A 3litre V6 Engine pulls boisterously throughout the rev range without any hesitation; Gearbox is nice and fluent with precise shifts. There are no knocks or rattles from the suspension; this is exactly how Honda intended the car to drive from factory. The balance and handling of this NSX simply takes your breath away.

The NSX was given back to Honda at 100,000km for a major service, Honda removed the engine and replaced all the hoses, pulley’s and belts- this is all fully documented with pictures.

The NSX is now extremely sought after worldwide and are in most avid car collector’s collections. Sourcing examples like this is like finding a needle in a hay stack. Overall if you are after a truly cherished example to enjoy yourself, to be part of a collection or as an investment look no further.

As with all our cars they will be sent to RK Tuning for a full independent check over prior to sale.

NSX Brief History
The NSX was built with an ultra-rigid, ultra-light all aluminium monocoque chassis and front and rear double wishbone suspension, with forged control arms connected to forged alloy wheels.

The car additionally boasted the world's first production car engine with titanium connecting rods, forged pistons, and ultra high-revving capabilities the redline was at a lofty 8,300 rpm – all traits usually associated with track and race engineered motor cars. The NSX exterior had a dedicated 23-step paint process, including an aircraft type chromate coating designed for chemically protecting the aluminium bodywork and a waterborne paint for the base coat to achieve a clearer, more vivid top colour and a smoother surface finish.

The car's chassis rigidity and cornering/handling capabilities were the results of Ayrton Senna's consultation with NSX's chief engineers while testing the NSX prototype car at Honda's Suzuka Circuit during its final development.

The NSX was initially assembled at the purpose-built Takanezawa R&D Plant in Tochigi from 1989 to early 2004, when it was moved to Suzuka Plant for the remainder of its production life. The cars were assembled by approximately 200 of Honda's highest-skilled and most experienced personnel, a team of hand-picked staff with a minimum of ten years assembly experience employed from various other Honda facilities to run the NSX operation.

After studying their main competitors such as Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche, Honda engineers designed the NSX in search of the "perfect balance" between usable power and reliability and thus produced a powerful naturally aspirated VTEC engine suitable for the extreme demands of both road and track.
