Think the current NSX is too expensive? Read this.

The New NSX is going to have 350 to 380 horse, Depending on weight and drag it might contend with the new Corvette, but certainly not the 500 hp ZO6

[quote=tran_nsx]i believe u are confuse a bit, what u are describing is the usual riced out civic buyers, not an average nsx buyer. the nsx is in another class, people with these cars tend to live very comfortably who isn't worried about modifications so i highly doubt they would go the route u mention at all. think about it, if u were making 100,000+ a year would u want a used highly mileaged exotic sports car or would u want a new or almost new sports car?

Check out NSXprime.com.. that board is mostly NSX owners. Many of them have kits, wings, rims, and engine modifications. Remember, the number one consumer complaint was that the car is underpowered. BTW, $100,000 a year is (in most cases) not enough to be spending $85,000 on a car.

An NSX with 290hp and JDM gears runs 12.8's. A 405hp Z06 does a 12.9.

A 500hp vette could NOT take an NSX on a track unless it was composed mainly of long straights. I expect the new vette would run viper-like speeds of low 12's. A 390hp NSX would rip the balls off that vette but sadly, I doubt honda would give the new NSX (HSC, whatever) more then 350hp. In one article, I heard it would be powered by a 300hp 3.5L V6. In another, they said the same thing except that the it would also have 2 55hp (each) electric motors that charge kinetically driving the front wheels.

Btw, how would you know what an average NSX owner desires from a car? Check out NSXprime.com. The board is filled with NSX owners and enthusiests. Many, many people there have things like body kits, rims, wings, engine mods.....

NSX's look much better if you just drop them. Buy a bodykit and MOST of the kits (IMO) will make the car look 1000x better.

Dude...the nsx driver you're describing is an Businessman who has shitload of money...and wants to show off his car because it costs alot..

Have you seen the true NSX owners...check out the 30+ year olds in Japan....they have spent over 100 grand modding the shit out of their NSX....they know what they're doing...just because someone puts on a body kit on their car doesn't automatically make them a ricer. If you're going to say anything about an NSX know that it doesn't just exist in one part of the world...it exists everywhere.

People put bodykits on their M3s....does it make them ricers....NO!!!
If you don't know then don't say anything.

I'm out....

Temple of V-Tec videos. It was a JDM NSX Type S. 290hp... difference in speed is soley from a different final drive which can be bought for $150.

Also, times posted on nsxprime have shown the same numbers.

i know three nsx owners personally which might not seem alot but it is. some people never even seen an nsx in real life not to mention those who don't even know what it is. one of the owners belongs to an nsx club in sillicon valley so if i wanted too i can be introduce to many more, but why? everyone of those guys probably have tons of money not to mention better cars such as the nsx owner i know who also has a 360 but i don't know if he sold it for a gallardo or not. all three owners are in thier 40's (one of them happens to be my uncle) and none of them have stickers, emblems, wings, or kits. all of them like the stock appearance, however; two of the owners felt it wasn't fast enough so the only moddification was a turbocharger.

True, most NSX's have ZERO mods. Too bad for them.





















Looks tacky... needs paint ^^^^


<edit> forgot a few....
