Looks that Thrill
This R/C model assembly kit recreates the Honda NSX, a 1990 super sports car release by the Japanese motor giant. The sleek, flowing lines of the original car are captured expertly by the durable polycarbonate body, with the model aiming to replicate the superb aerodynamics of the NSX. A lightweight bathtub-type frame incorporates front and rear space frames, employing front coil-sprung independent suspension and a rear 3-point setup with CVA oil damper. The model offers a choice of 2 different front and rear ground clearances, enabling you to set the car up just as the conditions require. Wheels are for use with sponge tires, and feature hub caps with designs based upon the real thing.
About the NSX
Honda's stylish super sports car the NSX was introduced to the world at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show, and became available for purchase in September of the next year. It made significant use of aluminum, not only in the elegant monocoque body, but also in various parts across the vehicle such as the suspension arms. Aerodynamics and style were artfully fused together, with an integrated rear wing and air intakes designed into the rear of the doors. Power was provided by the midship engine, an impressive 3-liter V6 DOHC unit, which thanks to Honda's unique VTEC timing system could generate a more than healthy 280hp. It offered an astounding blend of handling and performance that won it the affection of many.
