Exclusive: Honda takes 25 deposits for NSX supercar

Honda UK MD Dave Hodgetts
Honda UK has taken 25 £5,000 deposits for its new NSX supercar already – and buyers don't even know how much it will cost!

Honda UK boss Dave Hodgetts revealed that order books for the car, which won't arrive for another three years, had opened and that buyers had already handed over cash to get a place on the waiting list.

"These buyers have to be quite keen," Hodgetts told Autoblog the Paris Motor Show. "We have asked for a £5,000 minimum deposit, they don't know the spec or the lead time. Looks wise it will be very close to the concept, but we have no idea when it will arrive."

The new supercar is estimated to cost around £100,000 and won't be sold in all Honda dealerships. The low volumes mean dealers will be picked on order banks and interest from customers alone.
