Okay, so I didn’t test drive itâ€¦ however, my buddy took me for a ride. The NSX has a lot of history and heritage. It was once claimed to be a super car, for a fraction of the cost. It didn’t have the most horse power, braking or prestige as a Ferrari, but it could hold its own on the track and road.
So how does it ride? It felt like it was a brand new car, even though it’s over a decade old. Acceleration was linear, the ride was tight, and the handling is up thereâ€¦ like Porsche Cayman kind of handling.
Now, I’ve heard a lot about the car’s brakes being softâ€¦ but the car handles so incredibly well, you hardly have to touch the brakes. No joke, my buddy did about 75 around a very hard (90 degree) turn. There was no tire squealing, no slipping, no drama. One word: it’s “neutral”. I guess that’s all attributed to the low center of gravity and mid engine. If you want to find a car that handles, the NSX is up there. It’s better than a 335, s2000, viper, corvette, 370z and probably most 911’s around a corner. The only thing it lacks is power.
The NSX is a true driver’s car and has the reliability of a honda. Can’t really argue with that.
One of my favorite cars of all time.
the car is truly unbelievable around the twisties. and there’s very little electronic stuff getting between you and driving. there’s something very rewarding about that.
