While the NSX was in development in 1989, Ayrton Senna, the legendary F1 driver, took the car on a few laps of Japan’s Suzuka Circuit. After his runs he gave Honda some advice that they took very seriously. Eight months later, the NSX came back with a 50 percent increase in rigidity. Senna later assisted again with dialing-in the suspension. In 1990 the NSX was released. One year later Motor Trend named it “The Best Sports Car Ever Built.”
Only available in 1999 the Alex Zanardi Edition Acura NSX was a collector’s car from the start. The car gets its name from two-time CART open-wheel racing champion, Alex Zanardi. With only 50 made and each one with its own numbered plaque this car is sure to astound any collector. Based on the Japanese exclusive Type-S NSX, the hand-built Zanardi NSX is much lighter and faster than the typical Acura NSX. 149 pounds lighter to be exact. These fifty exclusive cars featured their own interior styling with red stitching as well as some exterior aero changes. Built with weight reduction in mind, the Zanardi Edition comes with lightweight BBS manufactured Alloy wheels, a titanium shift knob, a lighter battery, and a manual rack-and-pinion steering system. All Zanardi Edition NSX models share the same Formula Red exterior paint. It’s powered by a 3.2 liter, DOHC 24-valve, VTEC V-6 engine producing 290 horsepower and 224 lb.-ft. of torque. Its racetrack-tuned suspension delivers outstanding handling control.
This Alex Zanardi Edition NSX is in like new condition. It is number 28 of 50. It is a 100% correct Zanardi Edition NSX. It even comes with the Zanardi-specific spare tire. All parts have been carefully researched by a staff devoted to restoring Zanardi Edition NSX models. Its flawless perforated suede and black leather seats, only available in the Zanardi Edition NSX, keep you comfortable on the road, all while securing you in tight corners. With low mileage of only 33k, this NSX drives like a dream. With a new Acura NSX model arriving in the near future, prices of the originals will skyrocket!
