Honda themselves stated the following regarding their all new NSX: The road to success is no easy feat; it twists, it turns, and leads to challenge after challenge. Blending the pinnacle of sports performance with everyday driving comfort took time to achieve. It came with its fair share of setbacks, too. But if accomplishing perfection meant starting over again, and again, and again – that’s what we’d do. It’s why the car took years to perfect, and why the NSX only got better with time. That’s quite a mission statement in MotorMartin’s opinion and shows just how dedicated Honda were to achieve their aim, that of creating a car with: Timeless lines, one that’s Designed for pure performance, wherever you drive.
Chiswick Honda will join Crown Honda Hendon as NSX supplier and aftercare specialist from April 2017, giving additional capacity to ensure an exceptional sales and aftersales customer experience.
Honda UK have shared with MotorMartin that the NSX is the epitome of Honda engineering innovations. Developed over years of testing and racing, the NSX blends the pinnacle of sports performance with everyday driving comfort.
A powerful sports hybrid, the new NSX uses a twin-turbo hybrid drivetrain, while utilising a hand-built, twin-turbocharged, 3.5-litre, V6 petrol engine – mid-mounted to the aluminium chassis. It produces more than 550bhp, distributed via all four wheels, and features a brand new, nine-speed, Dual Clutch Transmission for instant response. Additional power is added via a rear electric motor and twin mounted electric units at the front.
For those lucky enough to be able to drive off the forecourt in their brand new NSX, the support you’ll receive from Honda will be second to none as their NSX aftercare services include a dedicated dealer point of contact, access to factory-trained technical specialists deployed within 24 hours, European Roadside Assistance (including accommodation if required) and a three-year or 100,000km warranty. Impressive.
Chiswick Honda managing director, David Grainger, explained to MotorMartin that: “It is a privilege to become one of only two NSX dealerships in the UK. The NSX is a very special vehicle; it is a different kind of super car, providing the highest level of driving experience, with an aftercare programme that goes beyond the norm.”
Tim Dibbs, managing director at Crown Honda, commented to MotorMartin that: “These are exciting times for Crown Honda and the whole dealership is buzzing to be able to sell these super cars. Media response has been fantastic; the car is a real head turner and we are delighted to have it in our showroom.”
This is one heck of a car, as a quick view of the short film below, kindly shared by Honda from their excellent YouTube channel, will show.
I want one so bad. How about a loan Honda?
Where will you go?
