The new NSX Type-R debuted in October, 2001 at the Tokyo Motor Show.
The key concept guiding the development of the new NSX-R is “evolution and strength”. As the first to benefit from Honda’s greatest achievements on the racing circuit, the NSX could almost be called the original NSX-R, and Honda has once again boosted its sporting spirit. A major factor in the NSX’s premium handling and performance is the lightweight aluminum body, and for the new model carbon fiber and other ultra lightweight materials have been used wherever possible for even lower weight. In addition, the revised craftsman-built interior further accentuates NSX-R’s sports credentials.
