Yes, I remember reading that Gordon Murray was very impressed with the NSX and wanted Honda to make an engine for the F1. However Honda was not able to provide an engine and he got one from BMW instead.

Agreed- the styling of the 12C is nice. This is too over the top, like the Ferraris are today. They stopped looking nice to me at the F430.
