Honda does another Type R to bid farewell to the original NSX
Following a seven-year hiatus, the NSX-R returns as part of the freshening done to Honda's entire NSX lineup in 2002.
Like the original, the second NSX-R features weight reduction efforts and a tracked-tuned suspension.
In addition, the NSX-R gains new aerodynamic features that improve high-speed stability.
Carbon fiber is used for the hood, front undertray, rear diffuser and rear spoiler.
To cope with the additional downforce, the NSX-R's suspension needed to be hard-tuned.
The Bridgestone Potenza RE070 tires were specially developed for the NSX-R.
Brake upgrades include slotted rotors and more aggressive brake pads.
A lower final drive gear ratio gives the NSX-R better acceleration performance.
The forged BBS wheels are painted Championship White on the NSX-R.
The interior gets a leather-wrapped Momo steering wheel, titanium shift knob and carbon-fiber bucket Recaro seats. Click through for a bunch more photos from Honda, and check out the article below for the full history of the Type R.
