In a video posted recently on YouTube, you can see such a rare Acura NSX driving around on the streets of Mumbai. Visible in the passenger seat of the coupe is a traffic police officer who seems to be enjoying and recording his joyride.
Later in the video by CS12 Vlogs, not only does the police officer pose with the exotic car, but he also gets into the driver’s seat to get a feel for what it is like to be seated behind the wheel. His beaming face and smiling eyes tell the story of how special this experience would be for anyone.

His colleagues also joined in to admire the beautiful car, while the owner talked about the car with them. Traffic police officers have a tough job, and it is quite heartening to watch one of them being offered a ride in an Acura NSX.
It is fairly common to see some high-performance cars on the streets of the financial capital of the country, however, this Acura is one of three that are rumoured to have ever made it onto Indian shores, making it very rare. Also visible beside the NSX is a white Toyota Supra, which is also quite a rare sighting in the country.
The Honda, or Acura if you’re browsing the North American or Chinese markets, NSX had been revived in 2016 and is slated to be in production till 2022. The 2022 Acura NSX would come with a Type S badge, mechanical upgrades and is meant to be a befitting more powerful sendoff for the legend.
‘New Sportscar Unknown World’ or the Acura NSX, as it is more commonly known, was the first Japanese supercar. The mid-engine, rear-wheel drive, 3-litre V6 was designed with inputs from one of the greatest Formula One drivers Ayrton Senna and was tested at the Suzuka Circuit and the Nürburgring.
Honda wanted to make a sportscar to bridge the gap between their Formula 2 racing car and their Civic lineup, and this coupe was developed with the Ferrari 328 as a benchmark to meet in terms of performance and style. Over the time of 15year that the first generation NSX was in production, only around 18,000 were sold in the entire world, and the last unit rolled out in 2005.
Many such incidents
In the past, many police constables have asked for a test ride and have shown interest in high-performance expensive motorcycles. Many police personnel have been recorded on camera while taking test rides of high-performance motorcycles. It sure is heartwarming to see people lending their expensive automobiles to the police officers who do a lot of hard work under the sun.
