Honda NSX-R / Honda NSX Type R NA1 on BBS LM
The Honda NSX-R / Honda NSX Type R is another JDM Super Car that never made it to US Soil. Although we did get the regular NA1 and NA2 Honda NSX models, the JDM Gods again thought we Americans were not worthy of the uncompromised version. This nice example of a NA1 Honda NSX-R looks to be further lightly modified with a set of BBS LM Wheels with gold faces (which are made in Japan, btw) and a MOMO Tuner Steering Wheel. More importantly, this NA1 Honda NSX-R / Honda NSX Type R sold for the equivalent of $220,000 USD; which means it will be more impossible to get on of these in the states.

SSR EX-C NEO Created by Speed Star – JDM Wheels

The SSR EX-C NEO were one of the most sought after JDM Wheels to hit stateside in the JDM Wheel craze of the late 80’s and early 90’s. At the time, the SSR EX-C NEO were more popular than the SSR EX-C Fin and SSR EX-C Mesh, but right after the Racing Hart Super Fin which were also made by SSR.

Unlike the SSR EX-C Fin and Mesh siblings, the SSR EX-C Neo had an additional coin on top of the main fitting which on the NEO’s which had a circular rubber grip as opposed to the hex style nut.
