Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
Despite the second-generation NSX being decent value when it first came to market, a weakened pound has seen the car’s list price increase beyond thoat of rival supercars, such as the McLaren 570S and Audi R8 Performance. And that’s before you even get to the options; sat-nav, front and rear parking sensors, electrically adjustable seats and metallic paint, not to mention carbon ceramic brakes, are all expensive extras.
For context, that lot’s all standard on the R8 Performance. However, keyless entry, climate control, a switchable sports exhaust, heated seats and LED headlights are included, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity thrown in, along with a premium sound system. Honda also provides a complimentary three-year service plan.
With the aid of those electric motors, the NSX should make a ‘greener’ supercar choice; it emits lower emissions and returns better average fuel consumption than most rivals. We’ve managed more than 30mpg at a cruise.
