Interesting Finds: Lightweight 1999 Acura NSX Zanardi Edition

Just how much of a lightweight?


During the Future Collector Car Show at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale, The ClassicCars.com Journal’s very own Tyson Hugie met up with the AutoHunter Cinema team to do a deep dive on this 1999 Acura NSX Zanardi Edition. This edition was a lightweight version of the NSX produced only for 1999 and limited to 51 examples. The car was inspired by Alex Zanardi, a racer who won back-to-back championships in the CART open wheel series driving Honda-powered machines. All Zanardi Editions were finished in Formula Red and featured a fixed roof which, along with lightweight BBS wheels, and lighter spoiler battery, single-pane rear window, and unassisted rack-and-pinion steering, contributed to a weight savings of 149 pounds.

  1. Beautiful car. I witnessed the day Honda awarded Alex Zanardi with his NSX at the corporate facility. Zanardi was a great race car driver for CART Racing.
