Encounter with a friend:
The meeting came suddenly. Fellow who kept sleeping in the indoor special keeping warehouse for a long time. The mileage was only 4,400km. I am sure to have wanted surely to run under the blue sky. Thus, she was untied, and became my lover on December 3, 2005.
Impression:
The body was made to slide into to driver's sheet like the cockpit, and there was not worth of the age when the steering wheel of this car was gripped for the first time and either my heart throbbed. It is the same as feelings exciting of putting to the car for the first time at infancy. When the engine starter is turned, the engine sound in a profound bass region is transmitted from the engine room of the back. It is a moment when the oneness with a peculiar machine to the midship is felt. If the throttle is completely opened, the driver is invited to the different dimension space with an engine sound that is peculiar to VTEC and shrill once. Exactly, it is one that can personally experience purity sports that HONDA advocates.
NSX from which sales in the country had been begun in September, 1990 ended in December, 2005 all production, and finished the mission of 15 years that had kept reigning as a flagship of HONDA sports. However, there are still a lot of fans that withers in the desire of HONDA Pure Sports.
Impression from the production end after 11 years...
Major modification:
About nine months have passed beginning to get on NSX. The car equipped with the manual transmission seems to be better to enjoy the sport driving at circuits. It was not possible to separate from the lover easily so, it put on the manual transmission of TYPE-R 5MT, and it decided to change it though it thought about the purchase substitution for the manual transmission car. The ABS system was replaced with the latter term when reliability is high type at the same time (Sep/2006).  Super lock LSD was mounted and final gear was changed from 4.235 to 4.4 (Dec/2006).
In October 2018, replaced the C30A engine so far to C32B newly assembled. As a result, the maximum power was 338 PS and the maximum torque increased to 35.5 kgm, making it a more torqueful vehicle than ever.
On board video:
There is no chance to take a picture of the driving image of the car quite. It bears shame and the appearance in the circuit is opened to the public from among very few libraries. Please note that the old movies have been delated from the web site.

Watch out for:
When this car is driven, the most attentive is high speed operation at rain. The spin might be easily happened at the speed at 100 km/h or more according to the situation. It has delicate one side of extremely causing the hydroplaning easily by the fact that the midship layout and the front wheel load are few.
