A new hand-drawn cutaway sketch of the NSX super car was released today by legendary automotive illustrator Shin Yoshikawa. Celebrated around the world for his artwork, Yoshikawa has been called one of the world’s greatest living automotive artists.
He has a special kinship with the first generation NSX, and now brings that relationship to the second-generation of the super car. Yoshikawa reflects the technology and beautiful design of the new NSX in his drawing.
His artistry carefully examines the NSX, deciding what elements to show, and to hide, the result of painstaking research, the culmination of months of work, and most surprisingly, drawn largely from notes and memory.
“The NSX’s innovative power unit was extremely challenging to draw, making the second-generation NSX the most difficult vehicle I have sketched,” said Shin Yoshikawa.
“Everything comes down to the details. If you don’t understand the technology that goes into building vehicles, you won’t be able to build them, and you certainly can’t draw them.”
It is the perfect subject for Yoshikawa’s unique art. The only super car made in America and the only one utilising electric motors to enhance all aspects of dynamic performance, the legendary Honda seamlessly combines an exclusive three-motor Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system with a twin-turbocharged V6 engine.
The 2019 NSX will arrive with an expanded colour palette which includes a vibrant Thermal Orange Pearl paint and is now available for order in Australia, with local deliveries set to begin in early 2019, dependent upon confirmation of production slots.
