Gordon Murray – Reflections on the Acura NSX

gordon murray acura nsx honda thoughts

Gordon Murray is a renowned designer of Formula One race cars and the famous and ultra wicked awesome McLaren F1 supercar. This is a translated reflection on the ACURA NSX by the Automotive Rockstar Designer himself.

To this day, the NSX is still a car that is near and dear to my heart. I put 75,000 Km on my NSX over the course of six or seven years.

It’s very difficult to discuss the NSX using current values and sensibilities. When the NSX debuted, the word “supercar” was still a relatively new idea in Europe. There are some who would say the Lamborghini Miura from the late 1960s was the first supercar. However, the truth is the explosion of modern supercars really started at the end of the 1980s.

Pink Pagani Zonda S With $153,000 Italian Paint Job

This $600,000 USD Pink Pagani Zonda S Roadster with a $153,000 SGD ($100,000 USD) Italian paint job surfaced at the Marina Mandarin Hotel in Singapore during the Singapore F1 Race in September!

The young, media shy, 37 year old owner Mr. Yeo (photos); flew his 2004 Pagani Zonda S Roadster to Italy in order to have it repainted Pink and then he parked it outside the Marina Mandarin Hotel in Singapore in hopes of getting peoples attention for the official launch of his new luxury sports car the Wiesmann GT MF4 ($225,000 USD).

The Pink Cadillac has historical significance. I wanted a colour that was different from the normal red and yellow sports cars people normally see.
