Honda NSX: Pic of the Week

1989 wasn't only the year of the MX-5 - time to celebrate the NSX's 30th as well!

By Matt Bird / Sunday, February 10, 2019

Just in case the news of the Mazda MX-5 being 30 years old in 2019 doesn't make you feel over the hill, don't forget that it marks the same birthday for the Honda NSX - another hugely significant sports car that's changed the genre over the past three decades. Moreover, it's 30 for the Lexus LS400 this year as well, so another one to add to the party list - a big year!

Anyway, the least we could do for Honda's New Sportscar eXperimental on its big birthday was a Pic of the Week. Hopefully there will be one or two more features marking the occasion during the year, but a new wallpaper seemed like a good start. Both images below feature Honda UK's lovely (and very early) NA1 NSX, the same that featured in our Hero piece of a few years back.

Truth told its automatic gearbox makes it less than fabulous to drive, but that doesn't get in the way of how it looks, which is what we're celebrating here. For something designed in the middle of the 1980s, there's still something that works so well about the NSX shape, even with its slightly long rear overhang. The pop-up headlights are great, the low scuttle is great, the rear light bar is great... there's a lot to like, even after all this time.

So make your choice (or take both) and get downloading below. Rest assured this isn't the last time an NSX will be seen on PH in 2019!
