Chasing Classics – Honda NSX

Chasing Classics – Honda NSX

I always like to work with new innovations in photography – drone footage is no exception. After a year of testing and refining techniques and getting fully licensed to fly for commercial work (PFAW from the CAA), I headed to my favourite location on the planet to shoot a classic 1996 Honda NSX.
So take a look at Chasing Classics…

It’s all about the location and the light.

We have used this location on several occasions over the years when a remote scenic location fits the creative brief & have shot there for Jaguar, Subaru, Suzuki, Mitsubishi and others for stills advertising. The light there can be epic, especially on a frosty morning like we were fortunate to witness when we filmed this video recently.

Honda NSX background.

The first generation Honda NSX (New Sportscar eXperimental) was the world’s first production car to feature an all aluminium body
going on sale in 1990. It featured advanced aerodynamics with styling apparently inspired by an F16 fighter jet and a VTEC 3.0L V6 engine with 270bhp 0-60 in 5.7 seconds and a top speed of 168mph.
Not ultra quick by todays standards, but quick enough to be interesting!

Made in a purpose made factory in Japan and with input from F1 World Champion Ayrton Senna, the mid ’90’s Targa seen in the video first went on sale in the US at around $95k.
It will be interesting to see how the new second generation version made in the US & badged as an Acura acheives such a cult following after 25 years – watch this space…
