Feature: Anthony’s Downforce NSX

.

Of all the cars at the Cerritos Honda car show last weekend, I think I liked this NSX the most.  I spotted it early on and got to snap some shots before the crowds came.  It’s ridiculously clean, and although only has a handful of mods, they all flow together perfectly.  As I was wrapping my visit up, I was lucky enough to run into the owner; Anthony.  He’s a nice, laid back guy, and I’m glad I could talk to him for a short while.  I got some more info on the NSX, and he was kind enough to let me post up a little feature here.  Enjoy the shots!

Anthony pointed out that the car was actually made in 1998; a generation which originally came with pop-up headlights.  He did the 2002+ conversion with all OEM parts, and the quality shows.  The painted Downforce NSX-R carbon hood looks great….

…in fact, all the aero on the car is from Downforce.  The carbon weave on all the parts was amazing.  You can sort of see it here on the front lip….

…and here on the carbon vent and side skirt.  Check out the uber-rare set of Volk CE-28N Genesis’.  They flow so well, you’d think they were original equipment.  I think Rays only made 500 sets of this wheel.

I love the low profile of these cars.

A close-up of the wheels.  Anthony said it is a staggered setup with 18’s in the rear, and 17’s up front.  The offset of the wheels is spot on, so no need to run spacers.

Tastefully modded, relatively untouched interior.

The engine bay was home to a few ARC products, and like the rest of the car, was clean as hell.

From the rear you can make out the Downforce valence and diffuser.  Anthony’s NSX gives testament to the sayings, “less is more”, and “quality over quantity”.  If you see him rolling around LA be sure to give him a thumbs up for a great build.  Thanks again Anthony.
