Review quote

Veloce had just released an updated, second edition of author Brian Long's excellent hostelry of the 1990-2005 NSX. In it, he examines the entire lifespan of the first generation "New Sports-car eXperimental" using first-person interviews with Honda engineers and PR staff, generously illustrations it with rarely-seen technical drawings and artful brochure images from numerous markets. From the F1-inspired development through the final press reviews of the street model - plus a chapter highlighting the NSX's racing history - this 224-page hardcover gives fans a broad overview of this car's lifespan. It is a must-have for enthusiasts who appreciate the highest levels of automotive performance engineering. - Hemmings Sport and Exotic Car. In this book you will get the full history, development, position in the different markets, a name index and the table with sales and production figures. The input from the engineers and designers in the future is definitely going well. - Autoliefhebbers. This 225-page Veloce hardback concentrates on the Mk1s development- including some fine cutaways.- Classic & Sports Car. Acura, under this name the top models of Honda are running in the USA, and the Acura NSX, the first Japanese "Supercar", belongs safely to the top group. On 220 pages, this extensive re-edition reveals the development, technology and history of the sports car in gross detail. 280 colour pictures, many of them from contemporary sales literature, buying advice, interviews with the protagonists, ... draw a comprehensive picture of decadent sports cars. - Austro Classic. Acura NSX: Honda's Supercar now has a second updated edition which is titled slighted differently: Acura NSX: Honda's Original Supercar. This book is the definitive NSX history as a matter of fact the only one as far as I know. I love that it starts with a quick intro to Mr. Honda himself, then gets into the development, design and some of the benchmark vehicles the designers were using as inspiration. I love the lavish illustrations and racing cars featured, any true geared growing up in the 80s and 90s can fondly recall the exotic looking NSX and this book is worthy of both the NSX owner/ fan's library as well as motoring enthusiasts in general. Mr Long did his research! - Corvettevenom.tumblr.com.show more
