This is something every NSX customer should do. It’s one thing to experience how amazing the car is, but to see the facilities and meet the staff who build it is an amazing experience. The pride they show in their work is obvious, and makes me appreciate my NSX that much more now that I’ve met them.

Excellent service. Great to see how this excellent super car comes to life from the bin of small aluminum parts to the final “shakedown”. The associates were very informative and willing to take their time to explain every aspect of their particular function.

This experience was beyond my expectations. Both myself and my wife raised our levels of skill and confindence in driving the NSX – both quickly and daily traffic. Seeing the car go together from the very start was amazing. It must be the safest supercar on the road.

Buying a car like the NSX, I believe it is important to understand it’s limits, to be a safer driver. This allows you to do that in a controlled environment. This is a first class experience and would highly recommend.
