Perhaps you could share some thoughts? Nobody has any Topspeed models yet so we would all like to know more about them. It looks ok, paint is great! Topspeed must lose those solid vents. Vents are such a critical element of current cars and supercars especially, you would think companies that are gonna make supercar models would focus on that. That is one thing Autoart does well at least.

This is my first Top Speed model and it looks very similar to my GTS models. Just like GTS, it has a superb paint job with rims and tires accurately done. Interior is of Hot Wheels Elite quality and the model is quite heavy for its size. All the grilles are solid on this NSX, but for $116 it's worth every penny, and I don't believe Autoart has anything near the $100 price range that can compete with Top Speed and GTS offerings.
Overall it's an awesome model and I'am looking forward to the new Ford GT from Top Speed already.

I bought the ALfa 4C, Peugeot T16, and Lotus Exige S all from Autoart for less than $112 shipped so Autoart does have something at that price but for how long that lasts, we'll see.

Thanks for the info but this model underwhelms me, mainly the car underwhelms me. I saw one at the Autoshow last year and after a brief look I moved on. Acura needed to hit a homerun with the NSX, kinda like Pontiac needed to with the GTO. I feel they did not.

I really like this model & love the paint on it. I just can't get my head around those huge solid grilles though
If it wasn't for those, I'd snap one up.

After seeing the paint job on this NSX I am excited to see what they do with the Ford GT I ordered. The pictures I have seen so far have been a little disappointing. The blue does not seem to have any "pop" to it like on the 1:1. Maybe my expectations are unrealistic given the price.

Where did you purchase this? I'm not the biggest fan of this new NSX but I wouldn't mind having it at least temporarily to go with my red AUTOart NSX. I do wish the grills weren't solid and the ride height looks off but I'm hoping this company will improve their techniques and line up.

Wow, Nice!!
I was hoping that they would be available here in Europe by now.. That's a resin that I plan to add for sure!!
Not such a fan of the real car, but this model & that color looks great!! Congrats!!!

Nice to see a Top Speed model unpacked finally, and that packaging seems much more logical than the usual carboard box with a cardboar panel to keep the model in place, nice styrofoam, also shock absorbing. The new NSX is much too anonymous designwise for me, but the model looks well made, mostly that paint work

Congratulations! That is a great looking model. I am especially impressed with the paint and the wheels. I hadn't planned on buying this, but now, I may reconsider. Cheers!

It's a great model and I hope nobody here pays the asking price on eBay
If you're in North America grab it from AE. Somehow they have great deals on the resin models

What is AE???

www.american-excellence.com a U.S. based diecast retailer. They had it for $116 plus $10 shipping but appear to be sold out. I can't find it anywhere on their site. Best deal is probably top speed's web site www.topspeed-models.com where it's $135 and $5 for US shipping.

Dave,
Here I found them in Europe for a decent price, this is 5 € cheaper than on their eBay site:

Around 140-150 at eBay at other sellers...
