    Honda NSX-R. It's rare too.

    Most track oriented of them all and probably more reliable too.

    It's also your name, so it's no surprise you went with it.

    I love the F355, but I do also love the Esprit so its real tough, but I think I'd go with the F355, proper manual.

    Red F355 with yellow/black interior. (black interior with yellow stiching)
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.
