 Honda NSX
image
The NSX debuted as Honda's flagship model based on a mid-weight, mid-engine, rear-wheel drive concept.
Features such as its V6 DOHC VTEC engine, all-aluminum double-wishbone suspension, front and rear tires with different diameters, and so on were designed focused on driving performance. The use of an all-aluminum body was intended to reduce weight and improve recyclability. It garnered attention as a new generation of sports car.
