"2nd generation NSX with added downforce gained through advancements in aerodynamics."

Beginning in November of 1992, the first-generation NSX Type R was available over the course of a limited three-year period run, and then became an icon. Seven years later, a new NSX-R was shown as a concept car at the 2001 Tokyo Motor Show, revving the legend.

And not long after, the NSX Type R once again became available to the public when it went on sale in May of 2002. Why such a long period between the Type R models? With the base NSX's performance already so high, engineers elected to wait for new cutting-edge automotive technology to incorporate into their rather than just carry over pre-existing packages.

Special emphasis was placed not on the engine, which was addressed when the second-generation NSX's power plant had its displacement increased and was fitted with a new 6-speed manual transmission, but in the area of aerodynamics. The work done in this area resulted in a rare feat for a commercially available vehicle; a shape that not only produced negative lift but generated downforce.

In order to achieve this newfound aerodynamic efficiency, a newly-shaped hood and rear wing were created; lightweight carbon-fiber was used in these vital components. The final result was a new NSX Type R that became the first street-legal road car to lap the famed Nürburgring course in less than 8 minutes, an unheard of feat for a full-fledged production car at the time.
