      Honda NSX-A Tribute

      One of the all-time highlights of Honda's road car portfolio remains the Honda/Acura NSX. Although both Nissan and Toyota toyed with the idea of building mid-engine exotics, only Honda actually put one into production. The influence of the NSX on its market segment extended far beyond its commercial success. The NSX was the first "exotic" to demonstrate that you could combine everyday driveability and reliability with supercar performance. Before the NSX, Ferraris, Lamborghinis and the like forced drivers to make all sorts of compromises in order to have their performance at one's disposal. It's fair to say that the supercars of today are far better all-around drivers today thanks to the lessons taught by the NSX. Unfortunately, Honda shelved plans for a successor model, so in many respects, one could argue that the spirit of the everyday supercar remains alive in the Audi R8.

      Perhaps Honda's product planners and beancounters alike would do well to take a stroll down memory lane and revisit what once made the company great. Can't think of a better way than to check out the dramatic video tribute to the NSX





      for the record, The Legendary Ayrton Senna was called in to fine-tune the Honda NSX's suspension setting during its final development stages. The tests were conducted at Suzuka Circuit with chief NSX engineer Shigeru Uehara and his engineering team present to gather Senna's direct input. As a result of his suspension tuning, Senna subsequently found the prototype NSX initially lacked chassis stiffness to the level he was accustomed to, so the final production version was further reinforced to his satisfaction.

      Great Car. Seen the video where Senna rips the car on a track once. Loved the sound of it

      The value of your life can be measured by the number of times your soul has been stirred (Souichiro Honda)

      I loved that quote from the Founder of Honda. If anybody wants to read more about him - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soichiro_Honda

      Look how the mighty have fallen!
      The only time a honda stirs my soul these days is when I see a NHC driven by a senior citizen holding up traffic on the fast lane.
      That too, when they made cars like the NSX, S2000,Integra type R and the civic type R.
      What a shame.
