You must have seen. Art comes but still of ability and although we all consider ourselves for the best drivers the world, there are perhaps even better. Check out below (as long as it is reachable), as someone in a Honda S2000 is overtaking far stronger vehicles. Pity that the passenger aside him is without helmet.
A legendary car to dubious fame in American road race in the 90s of the last century, among others against the Nissan 350 Z. The dubios fame has nothing to do with the performance of this car. Again and again, the testers swarm that even 3000 rpm additionally are available, where with other other engines gears have to be changed.
Hondas competence in engine construction
Worldwide it is at this time (2006) the production car with the highest specific power output, aside from turbocharged engines. He probably also has with over 9.000 rpm the highest maximum speed. It seems to be nearly British, but as the ultimate driving machine it does not have much in common with the classical roadster. The body caps are made of aluminum. Chassis and engine are very close to the race technology. Mounted in a coupe the effect would be even more efficient. Still it has achieved in endurance racings successes more than respect.
In 6,2 seconds from zero upto 100 km/h
For nowhere outside of the Far Eastern production is obtained so much fun for the same money. And what you see in the picture above, is part of the magic potion that allows the engine a second wind, because higher and wider cams open both intake valves more above a certain speed. Plus, there are aluminized cylinders, reinforced by carbon fibers. Enduring the engine is well, otherwise the manufacturer would not guarantee 100,000 km or three years.
The Roadster is presented in 1997 as a prototype in Geneva. It is produced in the factory Takanezawa in Tochigi (Japan), called the NSX factory. Then it came to the market, initially for about 65,000 DM, later 35,000 upto 39,000 euros. In 1999 it is became 'Cabrio of the year' by the journalists in Geneva, too.
The closing of the cloth cap is done with the electric locking mechanism with pulled handbrake quickly in 6 seconds. But before that is of course the cover to remove and stow in the luggage compartment. At the end still pressing the two locking bolt above the windshield. 02/16
