We have recently sold two Type-R NSXs. This yellow car has sold. It was a pleasure to deal with so many enthusiastic enquiries. Following our recent trip to Japan, we know of three cars available. All are in excellent condition. Both the NA1 and NA2. We are unique (possibly in the world) in having two NSX-Rs on our premises at the moment. So please get in touch if you are interested in acquiring Type R, Type S, or low-mileage NSX. Please call 01483 898888 or email for more information.
Type-R Number 422 (out of a total worldwide production of 483). Manufactured in March 1995, the Type-R was only available in RHD and only sold to the Japanese market. This car was imported into Australia from Japan in 2008. Just landed in the UK, all duties and taxes paid. UK registration.
It was the only NSX Type-R in Australia. Now there are none. We believe there are only three Type-Rs in the UK.
This car is a genuine, factory-built Type-R with all the correct Type-R enhancements. It is in the rare Pearl Yellow and has the optional air conditioning; Bose Hi-Fi; and the 16" and 17" forged Type-R alloy wheels.
The NSX was the first production car to have an all-aluminium monocoque body, the first independent 4-channel anti-lock brake system; the first production car with titanium connecting rods; an electric power steering system; Honda's proprietary VTEC variable valve timing system; etc etc.
Respected Japanese Formula One driver Satoru Nakajima, and Brazilian Formula One World Champion Ayrton Senna were both involved with the development of the NSX. Many thought the compromises for the non-Japanese (ie USA) market made the car too “soft” for the real enthusiast. So the “Type-R” (only available for the Japanese market) was born. The NSX was the first model in the Honda range to receive the “Type R” enhancements and branding.

Removal of sound deadening material
Removal of air-con (available as an option)
Removal of stereo system (available as an option)
Removal of spare wheel (this car has had one fitted)
Removal of front fog lights
