NSX Mk 1 details    (Score: 1, Normal) 11-10-2016 04:13

Even the key was special : http://www.evo.co.uk/honda/nsx/18511/the-honda-nsxs-monel-ignition-key-evo-art-of-speed
Part 35113-SL0-A11 was not, as it is often said, made of titanium. Honda instead used Monel, an expensive and highly corrosion-resistant alloy of nickel and copper that’s often used in marine engineering. [...] Monel is so robust that cutting a key blank is said to be a highly risky undertaking that could easily damage the machine.

so in 20 years time when Honda released NSX Mk III, then the media will focus on how special the Mk II was? I'm kidding... But seriously, after the Mk II came out, there are lots of nostalgia info, like this one.

Well, a lot of hacks that sneered at the upstart Jap Crap at the time are keen to eat as much crow as possible and are revising history at every opportunity.

It'll be the greatest car of all time ever made ever by the end of the year.

Not all of it would be revisionist Nick! Remember that old favourite LJK Setright and his thoughts on the NSX at the time [early 1990s].

“[it] is the world’s fastest, safest, and most beautifully made luxury car" I believe are the words he used.

LJKS used to take great delight in disagreeing with everyone else over here! He thought the original luxury express was ruined by the NSX-R modifications which was the only version which seemed to be 'approved'.

I realise that the US and Oz (does he count as an Oz?) reviewers were far less anti-Honda than those here.

But I've read too many revisionist posts on all of the greatest Hondas, which tended to be damned with faint praise by our lot. We're even seeing revisionism over Bagpuss, now that the US-ocentric 10G Civic is appearing!

Perhaps I'm just experiencing an outbreak of schadenfreude, now that the 'experts' are finding out what Setright and Graves already knew!
