DescriptionEdit

"A rare model that is the origin of the Honda Type R series, with just under 500 cars produced."


The NSX proved to be a major hit with both automotive enthusiasts and media alike, but the limited-edition NSX Type-R that went on sale in Japan in November 1992 took Honda's mid-engine sports-car formula to the extreme limits. This ultimate sports car was so well-received that the "R" designation eventually made its way into the lineup of Honda's more mainstream cars, namely the Civic and Integra.

Honda's engineering philosophy for its Type-R vehicles followed two main principles: "less weight" and "increased rigidity". In the case of the NSX. this means removing the car's air conditioning unit and sound system hardware, not to mention all of its sound absorbing insulation. Other changes included installing lightweight seat and wheels. The result was a lean performance machine that tipped the scales at a low 1230 kg (the stock NSX weighed 1350 kg), improving the Type-R's power-to-weight ratio from the base car's 4,82 kg per PS to 4.39 kg per PS.

Complementing its new lean body was improved structural rigidity that came via additional bracing throughout its aluminum monocoque chassis. Stiffer shocks and springs on the suspension were also key contributors. Overall, the Type-R behaved like an entirely different animal when compared to the base NSX, especially on the race track where the car belonged. Less than 500 NSX Type-Rs were produced during the car's limited three-year run, with all of them now considered collectors items by many Honda fans.
