The NSX had the help of F1 legend Aryton Senna (RIP) when it came to designing it. It was called the Japanese Ferrari for a reason when it was first released.

The current KR500 dusted all of the modern supercars in a road course test. Although I don't believe there was a Bugati in the group.

Don't forget about the new Boss 302 Laguna Seca edition..........

Lightweight rev monster that's not even street legal!!!! It's made for Hi-G cornering, and heavy breaking into hairpins. nowhere near the torque of the KR, but nimble enough to get better track times in hot laps.

Ohhh, and it's affordable!!!

Re: What kind of vehicle do you own

Here are some photos I've taken of mine and my partner's cars. We actually met at a Skyline Australia Show N' Shine event in 2005. 7 years later and we're still together.

My 1990 Mazda Roadster (miata) - supercharged with all supporting mods


...screams like a banchee


My partner's Boxster (2.7L manual)


...and here she is powering down the straight at Eastern Creek International Raceway here in Sydney


My R33 Skyline with GT30R turbo, 770cc nismo injectors, built engine etc etc etc


...and wearing an East Bear vented carbon fibre hood for track days


it's a good thing I don't gig anymore. None of our cars fit any of my gear. Even had to borrow a car to pick up my recent 7 string purchase!
