A GRINNING SHARK'S-MOUTH GRILLE marks out the latest Honda NSX to hit the streets. And Tamiya marks the entry of this Japanese supercar with a 1:24 scale replica.
SMN report: The new NSX has a body made from a combination of lightweight materials such as aluminium, steel and carbon-fibre. Power comes from a mid-mounted V6 engine, linked to a system that uses three electric motors for maximum wheel control, especially in corners.
The Tamiya kit (below) is well up to the company's high quality tradition, and has plenty of internal detail inside that curving bodywork.
The latest NSX is not the first Honda - or Tamiya model - to bear the name. The first NSX was an elegant beauty, sold from 1990-2005. Tamiya has released both the original NSX in 1:24 scale, as well as the uprated NSX-R track version (below).
A nicely detailed kit of a Japanese sports machine, produced in the typically excellent Tamiya fashion. The kit is well worth adding to your performance car model collection, and even better if you have it displayed next to a first-generation NSX and/or NSX-R. Which body style wins the good-looks award? Your choice!
