1997 Acura NSX Race Car June 8, 2013 | 01:00 pm

Here is a thought. Or more like a brain hemorrhage. Buy a 1-of-a-kind NSX race car, do the minimal amount of work required to get it street legal, and drive it to work once a week. Why be boring, right? Every cop in the city would know who you are, and most of them would be too astounded to give you a ticket. The city council might create a new lane just for you to drive in. And angels would sing.

This NSX was built by TCP Racing in England, and is the 11th of 11 chassis that were built just before Honda stopped funding the race program. It has been driven in the 24 Hours of Daytona, and took 3rd in the 1994 24 Hours LeMans. The aluminum chassis was seam welded, and then a carbon fiber tub was bonded to it. That surely stiffened it up mightily. Also has full carbon fiber bodywork and undertray, and a set of centerlock magnesium wheels. They developed the bodywork using wind tunnel testing, and the custom suspension was modeled in an expensive computer simulation program.

See all those spares included in the sale? You won’t need them. Tell your wife you are going to sell them and recoup most of your money. A wiring diagram is included. Frame a few pieces of it and hang it up on your bathroom wall.

This thing is only $119,900. Come on, go raid your 401k and buy it 🙂
