Nice read! This car seems to bring back the memories of old Honda cars. You know the ones with 4 wheel double wishbone suspensions, low cowls, big windshields and that direct mechanical engineering simplicity that made Honda....Honda.

I really wish Honda could somehow bring back all those characteristics and combine them with the current requirements of new vehicles.

I absolutely love this quote:

"They say never meet your heroes because they won’t live up to your expectations. But, this NSX-R GT doesn’t just feel as good as I expected, but better than I could ever have hoped. Unlike other classic super cars, the passing of time has been kind to the NSX. It suffers from neither high weight nor over complication of modern super cars, but adapts their up-to-date running gear, brakes and tires to give itself modern performance. Classic involvement with modern speed? That’s a fantasy we’re glad came true."

The NSX is truly a Honda in every sense of the word.
