I see two 130R White and one Thermal Orange in the background. I wonder whose cars those are?

Orange is a factory car, it had Ohio plates. The white cars are early builds, ready to ship. I documented everything and they were super cool. I think they fed off our enthusiasm, we had a blast.

I cant wait to see the numbers for each color produced. I didn't get the Gotham Grey but still happy with LBBP. I cant imagine there is more than 70 in blue. I bet Orange and Indy pearl will be the more rare paints for the run.

The way they did the rear view mirror cases on the Type S (black instead of body color on the top) gives the look of a blade extending from the body of the car on both sides.

Sent to you by email. Sorry to have to have you do it for me but appreciate it. No matter what I tried it just wouldn't take.

I'm posting these pictures for [MENTION=32146]Trophy Husband[/MENTION], since the site was giving him some problems...

Thanks to Ignition Key for posting on my behalf!

Well, that was a blast and all I can say is that anyone with the opportunity to go back and take part in the Insider Experience, it is a must do. You will not be disappointed. We have had car #14 and car #24 come across so only fitting to bring you car #34 (above). Assuming #44 will be next? Pictures don’t do it justice as it is much brighter under the lights, and I love how a yellow tone comes through at the base. John Watts is an incredible host and what a wealth of knowledge regarding Honda/Acura and all the history and components of the NSX. All the workers are amazing and genuinely happy and proud for us that have been fortunate to buy a Type S. I for one will appreciate this car like no other because of the insider experience and all the folks I met.

A couple points of interest for me is that I have engine #36 in the car #34 . The paint color in order of popularity appears to be130R White (30%), Gotham (20% of course), and then in diminishing order valencia, nouvelle, casino, long beach, curva, yellow, orange, and lastly black at about 2%. It is certain that all the employees will be retained for both short term interim projects as well as the long-term replacement car to come. Brakes and brake components are Brembo. Sourcing carbon fiber is a big issue (do not know the vendor). A lot of other interesting facts for you to find out on your own while back there. Again, a must!

I agree, going to the IE gives you a connection to the car different from any other car ownership experience. Meeting the employee's was a great experience, they showed a lot of pride in their work and the car, answered any questions, talked about how the engineers had some problems in the beginning to get everything correct.

One of the guys installing my engine knew me from Prime, ex Brooklands Green owner. Yes, he regrets selling it.

It's hard to believe that the beautiful thermal orange is second least ordered color. Thanks for posting all the info.

The last 4 or 5 colors excluding black I was told are all pretty close at around 5-8% each. So casino, long beach, curva, yellow, and orange total around 20 to 30 production cars each give or take. Rather surprising to me as well especially the yellow and LBB. Not to disparage the black but so much of the carbon and accents are lost in the contrast. I was really surprised at how striking the 130R white was, very nice. I personally just wouldn't want to see all time detailing get so easily mucked up.
