Honda didn't need to build the NS-X. Big-ticket sports cars don't really make sense for mass-market automobile manufacturers. But that didn't stop the Japanese giant from creating a sports car that has been hailed as "perfect," and taken its place among the most treasured vehicles of all time. From the ashes of World War II to today, this is the incredible story behind the Acura NS-X, the first Japanese "supercar." See how one man's manufacturing genius transformed the world's view of "Made in Japan" and threw Detroit into a tailspin--but how the cachet of producing a true exotic car remained out of reach for years. Trace the racing victories and engineering advances that finally made the NS-X feasible and see how, in typical fashion, the stunning car combined the awesome performance of an exotic with the traits that have made the Japanese auto industry a world leader--dependability and value.
