September 17, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

A unique lot has appeared on the Bring a Trailer auction website – a sports car Acura NSX in a rare Zanardi Edition.

The circulation of this model is only 51 copies. The new car cost less than $ 85,000, but currently the rate has exceeded the $ 215,000 mark. Bidding should end on September 17th.

All NSX Zanardi Editions are painted in Formula Red – like the winning car of Alex Zanardi, in honor of whom the limited edition was released in 1999. The special variation is 68 kg lighter than a simple NSX-T (T – targa). It was possible to reduce the weight by abandoning the electric power steering and a removable roof. At the same time, all options are in place. The car is equipped with acoustics, air conditioning, driver’s airbag, electric seats, for which leather and Alcantara were used.

The limited edition Acura NSX engine is the same as on standard models. The V6 engine produces 294 hp. (303 Nm), which works in conjunction with a 6-speed manual transmission and a rear-wheel drive system.

The sports car that appeared on sale was the property of motorcycle racer Miguel Duhamel. For more than 20 years, he drove 19.3 thousand km in Acura, for this reason the state of the car is close to ideal.

In addition, it was recently noted that the sports car Porsche 356A, which had stood in the garage for 35 years, was put up for sale. It should be emphasized that the seller is ready to name the cost of this car only upon request.
