Tomica Limited TomyTec Honda NSX
The origins of the NSX trace back to 1984, with the HP-X (Honda Pininfarina eXperimental) concept, which was a mid-engine 3.0 L V6 engine rear wheel drive sports car. Honda committed to the project, with the intention of meeting or exceeding the performance of the then V8 engine Ferrari range, while offering reliability and a lower price point. The concept thus evolved and had its name changed to NS-X, which stood for "New", "Sportscar" "Unknown (X) World", although the production model was launched as the NSX.
Gordon Murray, the designer of the McLaren F1 supercar, stated that he used the NSX as the inspiration for the F1 after test driving many high performance cars and finding the NSX chassis performed the best. Murray stated that the design was "monumental" to sportscar design. He found that the car could easily have handled more power and attempted to convince Honda to develop a more powerful engine, but they declined.
This resulted in Murray developing the F1 with a BMW engine, but he was so fond of the NSX that he bought one for personal use and drove it for 75,000km. Murray stated that the NSX was "dear to his heart".
For this Eastern "Ferrari", It’s really good to see it on the street today. There are many diecast manifactories product the 90s NSX, such as
F-toys, Hot Wheels, Tomica, Kyosho, Japanese hobbies, etc.
For the Tomica, there are some different NSX edition,
1. Tomica red and white box
2. Tomica old black box TL series
3. Tomica Premium

Although some collectors said TOMYTEC’s quality are not better than before, but i think that they are awesome. Beside there are the silver one and the Green and orange edition is coming soon.
However, there are limited Tomytec which included movable parts (Ferrari F40). This time the the NSX rear window and the hood can be opened. Everyone should be careful about the rear window, because it is easier to burst with a strong force. In addition, the TomyTec creates a detail engine base under the hood.
However, if you are not willing to buy a TomyTec, you can buy the F-Toy with the same movable rear window and engine bay. But the whole car of the F-Toys is in plastic.
Vintage edition of the TL Honda NSX.
