KUALA LUMPUR: It was six years back, in 2015, when Honda launched the second-gen NSX. Back then a hotter version with ‘Type R’ badge was rumoured to follow in the future. Now, Honda has confirmed a high-performance NSX version, but instead of a ‘Type R’ badge, it will carry a ‘Type S’ tagging.

Note, that it is not the first time that the NSX is getting a ‘Type S’ title, as back in the late 90’s the original NSX had a similar variant.

Also, this Honda won’t be around for long. The 2022 model year has been confirmed by the maker’s as the NSX’s final take and therefore it’ll use Honda’s iconic Type S emblem.
