This is the last picture I post on TE of my Tokyo trip. This was taken in the Honda Welcome Plaza in Aoyama. It can be found next to the Aoyama-Itchome subway station, 1.5 km south-west of the Imperial Palace Grounds.
It is a big showroom where you can find all things Honda: cars, motorcycles, scooters, robots (Asimo) and lawnmowers. I was driving a Honda car at that time and was a big Honda fan. A lot of cars on display were not available or common in the Netherlands, like this NSX. I actually sat in the drivers seat of my dream car.
I bought a model of the car I was driving at that time and some other merchandise and the very pretty girl at the counter gave me a little dragon with a golden smile to go with it as present because it was new years. I still have it... reminds me of her fantastic smile. (:

Perfect lighting for this car
I always thought the NSX was made by acura
I guess Honda (the lower end Acura) also makes one now
Id love to drive this car some day

your shot is the perfect shot for a magazine intrducing cars exhibited on some tradeshow. Perfect colors and lighting.
Personally I prefer the older NSX model but the Type-R is almost a perfect racecar. It comes without all the fancy things like A/C or good stereo. If you need luxury you can get that in larger cars but for racing the 280hp suffice due to the low weight!
Thanks for your critique on my shot. Concerning the panning I did try some panning shots but it was hard to find the correct exposure value and shutter speed. I wasnt satisfied with at least one shot...
Nevertheless, I like your picture!

I also like the car and motorbike of HONDA.
There is a dream in the product of HONDA.
Those products are the prices which can be got if you do your best.
But NSX is too expensive also in the product of HONDA.
When NSX was a little more cheap, possibly I also bought it...

Hi Gilbert, Good car photo, the shiny paint and the bright lights make it stand out. Looks great. Your colours came out well. Well shown. Murray.

Hi Gilbert! It should be forbidden to post pictures like this one :D
This car is just 'too much'...
I love the blue color of this japanese 'anti-ferrari' as someone called it!

Prachtplaat, sprankelend blauw. Supermooie auto. Goed standpunt, mooie belichting, prachtige lightreflecties ook.
Alleen jammer dat die twee Jappen daar staan. Vind dat welcome satellite bord precies boven de zitplaatsen en het dak van de auto wel mooi, ook dat goed gedaan dmv standpunt.
