2002 Honda NSX Coupe

Based on the Honda NSX shown at the toyko motor show, this is the first major update for the NSX line. Main changes from previous generation include: -A strong exterior design was created along with an improved aerodynamic performance by adopting the newly designed projector-type discharge headlights, the front bumper, rear bumper skirt, door garnish and the rear combination lamps. Change in the tire size and the adoption of the newly designed aluminum forged wheels that were jointly developed with BBS, have resulted in improvements in driving stability and cornering performance. New colors were selected for the meters, center panel, door panels and the audio equipment and air conditioner switches and controls. Changes and additions were made to the custom-order plan, offering rich combinations of interior and exterior colors, including the adoption of new colors for the body and interior.
