Have you driven one? They are pretty sweet to drive. I have only driven the earlier ones, not a Japanese model like this.

I wouldn't mind a Porsche GT2 or GT3 either, and neither have a V8. I shouldn't talk though since I drive a car with a 500hp V8 that gets me around 12mpg around town.

Not really, it was a decent value when released. It was a world class supercar that could be driven daily. It actually forced Ferrari to make a far better product. Before the NSX Ferarri's were extremely cumbersome to drive with that horrible gated shifter. The NSX was a game changing car. When the NSX became a bit dated the price was too high. I think towards the end they were in th 90K range in the USA.

The NSX was a great car to drive on the track, that is for sure. A true "driver's car".

I had to revive this thread because I didnt want to be that @$$ starting a new thread on something that already exists.

anyway, since this car has been released, I was wondering if some of our friends across the pond would chime in and give some feedback on this car.

Handling, cornering, jumps ect. and if in fact the EU parts really separate this from the original 2.0.

thanks for any responses, this car looks awesome. Ive owned the original 8ight and the 8ight 2.0 and was just wondering if the EU was any better.

Biggest difference is the inclined spindle/carrier set. It made a huge impact on my ability to get throughout corners. More steering coming in, and less coming out. I felt the 2.0 always was very tail happy exiting turns, which I like. I hate a numb car.
