This Honda NSX race car will require some work to complete the assembly. It has not been run since the 1999 Daytona 24 hour Race. The engine is removed and disassembled but the Hewland gearbox is rebuilt.

The car is rolling. The body and chassis are in excellent condition with very little use, It has only done 1 race!

It is the last produced, and probably the best Factory NSX-R Race Car available anywhere, for any price!

Includes many rare spare parts. Also includes some of the NSX-R GT-1 parts from the 3 cars which were destroyed by the factory.

This would make an excellent Historic Race Car or an important addition for any collector of Honda Racing History.
