Hammond drives the icons: Honda NSX
The everyday supercar developed by Ayrton Senna hasn't got any less fun...

Damn, it still looks good. It really does. This is a 20-year-old car that hasn’t so much dated as become more subdued – it doesn’t scream and demand that you look at it among modern traffic, but when you do, you can only admire the considered, stylish form. It’s long, low, wide and sophisticated.
The interior has aged less well. Suddenly I’m in a land of late yuppiedom, Psion handhelds battling for superiority with Filofaxes and unbelievably bad clothes. The leather feels glossy, too shiny, and the two switch binnacles either side of the steering wheel remind of those in a Citroen BX. Not particularly good things, any of them.
