    We recently conveyed this NSX from its former owner in San Diego, CA to its current owner in the Middle East. Here it is taking a short rest in Dubai last week

    I have a wine bottle signed by him. Nothing to do with NSX, Ferrari related label on it.

    Does Michelin offer the AS/3+ for the NSX? They are great on my ZR1.

    ^ Didn’t see that one at TireRack, but lots of options. I’m more into very capable touring tires more than max performance.

    That’s quite the light bar! Didn’t see it at first.

    Nice find on the picture.

    I've been alerted to the fact that this thread has now been merged with the Gen 2 NSX thread.

    I have to ask - why? It's not like we are hurting for space here in the General Automotive forum, and the Gen 1 and Gen 2 cars have almost nothing in common other than their names.

    By doing this, Gen 2 owners who are looking for current tips, experiences, and advice will be competing against those who want to talk about Gen 1 NSX history, etc. Makes no sense to me.

    Two very distinct cars. I agree, the threads should be separate.

    Same here. Why were they merged? The two generations need separate threads.

    Sterling has done a fantastic job of promoting and presenting the Gen 1 NSX and it should not be diluted with Gen 2 discussions.

    And NbyNW has done a great job of promoting the gen 2 NSX which has been very personal and informative .

    Is that an optical illusion? The driver looks like a GIANT!

    Doesn't look unusual to me... the NSX is a cab-forward design for sure, and it's also much smaller in person than it looks in pictures.

    I was following my buddy in his Gen 1 when a modern Lambo passed the other direction. The Lambo was HUGE relative to the NSX. I’m shocked how large “sports cars” are these days.
