It’s already been 20 years since Senna tragically passed away. Most know him as maybe the greatest driver to ever set foot into Formula 1, but some of us know him for a little more than that. He is the man that helped Honda conceive one of the greatest performance machines to come out of Japan.
The NSX rolled off the line in 1990 for the first time and quickly became one of Japan’s favourite sports cars. To this day the old man in green still rides his trusty Honda through the mountain passes! And so does Yoshi with his ’93 NSX.
Having owned it for over a decade Yoshi has done quite a few modifications to get closer to his ideal of how a NSX should look and feel. The main visual modification is the complete Marga Hills Body kit including a few personal touches from Yoshi himself like the front lip and side steps, as well as the center duct in the rear diffuser.
All that combined with a set of black TE37 complete the look of his outrageous NSX. The wheels are diameter staggered as frequently seen on these machines, which means that the fronts come in at 18 inch and the rears are 19 inch.
Further mods include a Advance GT Titanium exhaust and a Mishimoto carbon intake system which help the C30A breathe freely. I’m sure the sound is insane, I think we should ask the owners in the future to send us a video of the exhaust sound of their cars!
On the drivetrain side of things OS Giken parts were utilized for ultimate efficiency. Their flywheel and twin clutch take care of friction and the Super Lock differential including a complete 4.44:1 final drive gearset make sure the power gets put down on the ground in an appropriate manner.
In order to control the power being put down it was sat on PCR coilovers with BESTEX springs along with a combination of NSX-R and Type-S stabilizers. Topped off with front and rear Okuyama shock tower braces I’m certain this thing must be an absolute blast to drive.
Yoshi is nowhere close to be done with this NSX and has enough plans lined up for another decade. Further fender modifications as well as a better brake system are on the horizon. He wants to take it slowly though, at the end of the day he wants to enjoy driving his car above anything else.
I’m looking forward to follow the continued evolution over the coming years!
