Reader Rides – Stephen’s Turbo NSX

Although we don’t feature many imports on Secret, we do have a soft spot for them as we’ve all grown up around that scene and have even owned some in the past. The 90’s was arguably the greatest generation for Japanese sports cars which gave birth to a ‘supercar’ from literally every make. Toyota made the Supra, Nissan had the GTR, Mitsubishi had the GTO, Mazda had the RX7, and Honda had the NSX. Although the NSX was slightly underpowered, it made up with superb balance and handling that rivaled many Italian exotics. When Stephen sent us photos of his astonishingly clean NSX, we knew we had to showcase it. Photos courtesy of Shiraki Photo and Cullen Cheung Photos.
