The Honda NSX shook up the established order when it was released and comprehensively beat the Ferrari 348. Did the much improved 355 restore Ferrari's honour?

      +Shift Gears nd you insult in "all you can afford is honda" but you know a nsx is more expencive than the cheapest ferraris, and a gen 2 nsx-r is as expencive as a 430 or 458... so that "its all you can afford" insult just shows how little you know tbh.

      #1 the 355 is better than the 1. gen nsx, but the nsx was made to compete with the 348 and it was better than the 348 in almost every way. #2 they started production when the 328 was still in production. The nsx is a lot of fun to drive, but it does miss the sounds of a v8, and imo does not look as good as a 328/348 or a 355. It was also made to be more reliable, and it is. Its cheaper to fix and you have to spend way less on parts the few times something is broken. (The 348 is more expencive to run). I have to agree that honda is a meh car company overall, but in 1989 they made a great car in the nsx that was a great competitor to every other supercar of that era, an you cant just talk shit cause of the brand name. drive all the cars and then say wich is better, and dont drive a 200k km nsx and a 10k km ferrari and say "nsx was bad cause stuff didnt work and it was bad kept but the ferrari was still ike factory" Gotta drive both in good condition to feel how they were in 1989-1995. And again, if you say they are slow and boring, you are dumb... cause you cant compare 2 cars from almost 30 years ago to todays cars and say they are bad. Slow =/= bad. Thats why people enjoy Go-cart even tho its slow.

      interior feels better srewed together? The whole car is better srewed together beacause its the pinacle of japanese engineering! Not a ferrarri build of part of a fiat. Also the nsx looks way more fun then the nsx only by watching the video. The first moment when he accelerated there was a moment when he didnt knewed if he should or shouldnt say that he loves the nsx more in the first second of driving it.


      And last but not least! Try the type r of the nsx and see what you think!

      Such a great test drive video !! It seems that both are really great cars...
      But I would like to point out a wining-factor on the HONDA's side - its reliability! - even in 10 more years, everything in it will work...

The NSX is a Legend not only being a better driver's car but being reliable and day to day easy to live. Just impressive World class Engineering. Take that Ferrari.

      I doubt that Shift Gears has driven either. There a few Ferraris that I haven't driven including 812 and 488 on Fiorano Test Track. I own a 430 manual and Testarossa and have driven most models, not all. Then again I have a 2002 Honda NSX. It is an amazing machine, conceived many years earlier and before 355. No, the compare is not dumb. It's perfectly sound and a well balanced opinion is offered here. The NSX delivers fabulous driver involvement and magnificent engineering, build quality that Ferrari can't match, not then anyway and reliability. The whole packaging of NSX is an unbelievable feat of engineering. I may buy a 355 to enable me to offer another back to back opinion as I can't recall when and indeed if I have ever driven one! There you go. That's why the above video is entirely valid. One final point. There are nightmare references around that talk about the 355 Achilles heel; that's engine reliability and failures with valves etc. I've never seen the same for NSX.

      Whoever says there is slack in the NSX steering has never driven one. In fact, it could well be the defining characteristic of the whole car: no slack anywhere.

      Its because the "slow" steering ratio, but not slack, its a differnet thing but some people can feel the same.

      The Ferrari remains just beautiful even after all these years. The NSX would be by far the least painful ownership prospect. Heart or head?

      I would take the NSX, they are rare, well made and historically significant. The 355 is just one of very many kitcar-ishly made old ferraris. Now compared to a newer ferrari like a 360 or 430 and the choice is obviously a Ferrari...

      Great video Number27. Really enjoyed a lot! Keep on the good job! What cameras you use on your edition? Still waiting for a test on a Supra MKIV twin turbo or a Esprit S4s. I think you made a mistake on selling your Esprit turbo...but anyway it's just my opinion...dont get me wrong! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‘
