    Default Last 12

    Just for the record I thought I would create a post for the details of the last 12 NSX supplied in the UK on 15 November 2005.

    They were all manuals:

    NSX
    3x Monza Red interior 1 each brown, black, grey
    1x Ascari Red interior Black
    2x Silverstone Silver interior 1 each black and blue
    2x Berlina Black interior interior 1 each grey and red
    1x Long Beach Blue interior grey
    1x Platinum White interior red

    NSX-T
    2x Silverstone Silver interior 1 each of blue and black

    Stitching details were also specific to each vehicle with, red, blue, grey and black used

    I understand that in fact there was a 13th car supplied after a mix up with one dealer not processing an order in time but I do no not know the colour details of this car.

    Dealers were advised as follows:

    Honda Motor Company announced on June 12 2005 that it willdiscontinue NSX production later this year. When the NSX was launched in 1990it was the world’s first mid-engined car with an all-aluminium monocoque body.World Press praised the suspension and handling characteristics which weredesigned with the help and expertise of the late Ayrton Senna. It was the first“Sports Supercar” that was easy to drive every day but which would also becompetitive on a race track with some exotic competition. Since its debut inJune 1990 the NSX sold 18000 units worldwide, over 450 which are in the UK.
    Following this announcement Honda (UK) is offering NSXenthusiasts a final opportunity to buy a special one-off colour combination.
    A total of 12 cars will be imported,
    All are manuals
    Two areNSX-Ts
    Ten areCoupes
    Elevencars will have a unique paint and trim combination, never been sold in the UKbefore.

    All buyers will be invited with their partners to attend aspecial VIP handover event at Honda’s BAR factory on 15 November (2005) whichwill be hosted by BAR’s test driver Anthony Davidson.

    Hi Shawn,

    You’re number 13 is Black. It was supplied with a tan interior however one owner who was on here for a while had it retrimmed with black leather and IIRC, black stitching. I understand it was registered early 2006.

    There is/was a thread about the changes he made, I’d guess around 3 yrs ago ...

    I thought Ollies silver NSX was supplied after the last 12 due to the dealer having lost the order in the back of the filing cabinet?

    Might be wrong but i'm sure he will confirm either way

    Olly you are correct.

    I'm not even sure that the car Senninha is talking about is even a last 12 car. IIRC it is a 2005 car but not a last 12.

    2016 NC1 NSX, Casino White Pearl with red semi-aniline leather and alcantara.
