SB's Take
  • An incredible opportunity to acquire the very rare Honda NSX Type S
  • Only 209 built exclusively for the Japanese market
  • 3.2 litre V6 producing 294 hp

SB is absolutely thrilled to list this ultra-rare Honda NSX Type S. Only available to the Japanese market, this NSX Type S in its Sebring Silver Metallic was imported to the UK in September 2017 and purchased by its current (3rd) owner in August 2019. Similar to the more lauded NSX-R, Honda took a bunch of weight out by some smart means - carbon buckets replaced leather seats, titanium shift knob, lightweight wheels, a MOMO wheel, a mesh engine cover, single pane rear glass, a light battery, and… lots more. In all, the Type S loses 45kgs compared to the standard NSX coupe to tip the scales at just 1320kg. With its new-for-1997 3.2 litre engine coupled to a 6-speed manual gearbox, the Type S produces 294hp and 305Nm of torque. Only a couple of hundred of these came off the line making the Type S even more rare than the NSX R. And it was almost as quick as the 3.0 litre NSX R on track but was, notably, quicker to 62mph by over half a second courtesy of its increased power output. The matching E13 NSX number plate is included in the sale. Buyers should bid with absolute confidence.
