Europe’s largest ever gathering of Honda NSX supercars stole the limelight at
last weekend’s JapFest show at Castle Combe.
An incredible 43 of the legendary mid-engined sports cars were brought together for the event by one of the UK’s biggest NSX clubs.
Owners from far and wide assembled at the Wiltshire venue to create a huge display – catching the attention of show organizers, who awarded the club a trophy for its efforts. Meanwhile, some of the more brave members ventured on track to test the limits of their immaculate machines.
James Taylor, from the online-based NSX Club Britain, said: “This was our first ever stand at a large event and everyone was blown away by the sheer number of cars that turned up. Some people had traveled all the way down from Scotland and Northern Ireland to be there.”
Honda (UK) contributed to the pack of NSXs with its own, rare version of the car. The G-plate NSX, registered in 1990, is thought to be the second NSX ever brought to the country. And despite its age, it’s in immaculate condition – thanks to restoration work carried out by the Honda (UK) press workshop, and the meager 7,700 miles on the clock. Its other claim to fame is that it was once driven by Ayrton Senna on a visit to Honda (UK).
