Took my car into the dealership for some servicing and ran into this little delight. It's not a terribly fancy vehicle but my lack of photographic skills certainly didn't do it justice.

I'd like to blame overcast skies and limited angles, but I'm sure somebody more skillful could've done much better.

Yeah. Not sure why this vehicle was in California. I asked the service manager if the owner was around so I could ask for permission to take some photos of his/her car. Service manager said the owner's not around. The car was shipped there to do some engine work. But the service manager said he doesn't think it'd be a problem to take photos. :)

i'm pretty sure that one is a replica nsx-r since no nsx-r's were available for the US market (left hand side drive).

http://en.wikipedia.or​g/wiki/Honda_NSX (external link)

"Second Generation NSX-R (JDM)

A second iteration of the Type-R dubbed NSX-R was released in 2002, again exclusively in Japan. The second generation NSX-R had a more aggressive rear spoiler and hood vent, along with larger yet lighter wheels to reduce weight to 1270 kg (2800 lb). The rear spoiler was said to be the largest one-piece carbon-fibre spoiler in production cars. Under the body, panels and air fences in the front along with a small rear diffuser serve to produce balanced "negative lift" or downforce."

Not bad. When you can't move the car, you're pretty much stuck with what you got.

Don't know if it's a replica or not. I wouldn't be able to tell personally. But the door would suggest that he/she went to great lengths to make it look realistic, if indeed it was a replica. Maybe that little badge is easy to pop out and replace. I don't know if the Acura NSX versions had the same emblem near the door handles.

very likely a replica. LHD NSX-Rs were never sold to the US market.

nice pics though.

My photography-related addiction makes a crack habit look like a fiscally responsible pasttime.

There were no LHD "JDM" NSX's. And I agree it's a replica. If you have one of them in the states its rare...They stopped importing JDM vehicles ever since the skyline incident with Motorex.

i don't think they stopped, because my friend purchased a rhd rx7 that had been imported way after the motorex incident. not from motorex, but it is a legal car and is legit car and is registered.

his car was not imported by motorex but another company, but it is US legal.
