cool 2002 NSX what you reckon....

After reading the wheels last night i stumbled on the new article of the latest NSX re-skin before the brand new one in 2004.
In the Jap cars i'm a fan of the NSX (heaps better than S2000).
Must say i'm to see them put 17's on both front and back on the car. NSX's has 17's on the back and 16's on the front in previous models. Lights remind me of the last series of the Mitsu GTO.

(Sorry piccie is small, haven't installed a Pic editor to shrink big pics).

I look forward to seeing what the new one in 2004 is like.

I know this car has some great performance, but right from day one I never thought the car looked like it's price tag. Front half looks too much like the early/mid 90's Honda Prelude's...

I don't mind the new NSX. I like the interior, it looks kind of classy. I think they could use a bigger engine than that V6, and a bit more power too, even though that is the japanese specification limit.
In this link attached you will find some more pictures of this car.

i reakon its pretty damn good...Something else that is in wheels that interested me was the hyundai coupe. While its stolen styling cues from just about every good sports car on the market it seems to shape up ok...for a hyundai that is.

the hyungay tibourn, or spanish for shark, is an absolute waste of money. Who could justify spending 45k on a bloody hyungay when you could easily get yourself into an XR8 for the same price. Hell even a 200SX is cheaper than it and would have twice the reliability, looks and performance.

haha, yes the hyundai did look quite good, but did you notice the engine cover? i recon that is a clear sign of the type of ignorant wankers these cars are aimed at.
