Really want to hear one of these in the metal

An NSX with a nice aftermarket exhaust, that is. Heard here, some of them aren’t bad, but they probably sound much, much better in real life. Amazing how much variance there is in timbre from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Nice video if you own an NSX (and even if you don’t).

  1. Good post. Had a chance to buy an early 90’s version but I couldnt get myself to pay 20k for it haha. I think its a good car though. Not a lot of bang for the buck, But I would like to own one eventually. I think its one of the best sounding V6’s out there, probably second to my GTV6’s 2.5.

  2. Perfect timing, as usual. I was thinking about you guys the other day, actually, when I walked by a dude driving a totally normal (early-gen) NSX with moderate pipes. Loved that awesome smart-yet-exotic look, and had some late-40s dude who probably works in computers driving it. I didn’t have anyone around me who would know what the hell I was talking about, so I thought of MCB:

    Could you, and would you, rock an NSX?

    They are obviously special cars (including the decidedly not out-of-control engine) and the ties to Senna are legendary and intriguing. But could you actually have one in your garage? I just don’t know.

  3. tbh all of those sound pretty crappy.
    i’d stick to the stock muffler.
    best nsx i ever heard was a late model type r in tokyo years ago.
    honda should put that back into production instead of the boring recent concept.

  4. The car that changed the world’s perception on super cars… with the NSX, Honda proved that high performance & reliability weren’t mutually exclusive. The mistake they made (and continue making to this day) is not improving on the formula. The NSX soldiered on for 15 years with precious few updates. That said, it’s an impressive car that can still wow you… especially if you throw a couple more hp at it. It’s also the only road car to have been developed in part by the late great Ayrton Senna. It’s definitely on my bucket list.
