    I currently own a 488, 991 TTS, SLS AMG and many others. 24 hours into ownership and I would sell them all just to keep this damn NSX. What an absolute feat of engineering! The waste gate blow off valve is audibly piped in over your left ear and It seems that the engine note is plumbed in over your right. You get an incredible 7500 rpm wail that is coupled with an explosive boost pressure release whoosh on throttle lift off. I've never heard or felt anything like it and I frankly just can't get enough of it. In my opinion, this car sounds as good as my 488, but it can lay down all of its power, all of the time, irregardless of tire temps and at 1/4 the monthly lease cost. Plus, I can actually put REAL miles on it. I took the dog to work with me in the pouring rain today (ahhh, the true beauty of a closed end lease). Try doing that in a 488. After driving the NSX in November I fell in lust and immediately posted my 488 for sale. It sold this week. Well done, Honda.

    Strange that such huge discounts are needed to sell them.

    100% agreed on how awesome the car is. Perfect conditions or inclement weather, this car performs in a way that can't fully be appreciated unless you drive it. And by drive it, I mean more than a lap around the block. I'm at 6k miles in 5 months.

    I paid more than If i had waited until now to buy the car, but you can say that about most non-ferraris.

    Great video of NSX-R and current gen NSX. He's an excellent reviewer.

    Awesome video that really shows how great the original NSX was. Jethro is definitely one of the best. I tend to only trust the reviewers that can really drive the cars.

    There is never any shame in reposting this one. :)

    Here is some Type S action for you, Chris. I'm sure this accurately reflects your weekend drives in the red car.

    I would love to drive the original - such a great looking car.

    Best comparison of the previous Type R to the new NSX I've seen yet, thanks Vig!

    I've had a few NSXs as well. Two 1991s, a 1997 and now a 1995. They all have their places in my heart. My latest one, I have mostly driven and done minimal mods to it (added a Tubi exhaust, KW V3 suspension.) Love the car. I don't drive it like the guy in the video above, but I like to push it at times.

    Driven nothing but the NSX last two days. Car is mind blowing. Best car I’ve ever owned hands down. I’m likely selling the ZL1 bc it just pales in comparison. I’d gladly have paid full sticker if I knew how good it is. $50k off is the steal of the century.

    The search is over and I bought one a couple weeks ago. Very happy with the price.
    Paint corrected last week. Full wrap (clear bra), ceramic coating, and window tinting tomorrow.
    It’s sitting with 21 miles on the odometer and I can’t wait to get behind the wheel.

    Had the pleasure of driving one on track last week in Vegas. The car is amazing, with less TC intervention than other track cars. Electric torque is fantastic, especially pulling you with the front wheels.
