1991 Manual NSX Coupe in the classic Formula Red with Black leather. 3 Owners. 57,600 miles. Perfect service history.
What makes someone buy something and then keep it for twenty-five years?
In today’s consumerist, disposable society of in-built obsolescence, this is even more an interesting question.
I’m not a person who has ever spent a moment’s thought on brand loyalty. I’m not loyal to brands. I wouldn’t buy the latest Ferrari, Porsche or Prada jacket just because of the label or the badge. I don’t think of brands as defining my identity. It’s just not how I view the world.
I’d like to think that the type of person that buys and keeps a Honda NSX shares my view. Brands are a triumph of marketing over design and engineering. Brands play on our emotions rather than our needs. It’s products - and good design - that matter, not brands.
The Honda NSX is simply a brilliant product. Reliable and dependable over the long haul. Excellent but understated. Classy but not pretentious. Never ostentatious but not anonymous. Now I’m getting emotional - but for the right reasons.
Kazuo Shimizu, the Japanese racing driver and motoring journalist, said: ‘I recommend any new owner to get to fully understand this machine and really discover the subtleties of its performance. This is a car that will only reveal itself to you slowly, but it’s definitely worth investing time in. A lifetime later, you’ll still be having fun discovering new things about the NSX.’
That’s why the first owner of this car bought it new from Rowe’s Garage Truro on the 16th August 1991 and kept it for the next twenty-five years. Since then it has had two other owners. We have sold the car each time.
It is a five-speed manual in the classic Formula Red, black roof and black leather interior.
It has covered 57,600 miles and has a full Honda service history, including three cam-belt changes. It has nineteen Honda main dealer stamps in the service book and we have a file with invoices and all MOTs. Last year we carried out a full service inspection and fixed anything that needed doing. It is completely original, un-modified and has possibly the best provenance of any NSX we have seen.
If you are a slave to brands, buy a Ferrari. If you want a brilliant car, that will be a joy to own, then buy this.
