Continuing the trend for convertibles, remember the NSX-T? In lieu of featuring the horrendously shit-looking new NSX announced for 2015 production, how about this 90's gem...
If I was to be run over, again, then the next time it happens I want it to be at three in the morning by some guy driving a black NSX-T and listening to this song. And he'll be smoking a cigarette with the top down. In the rain. In fact two cigarettes. Because he's that much of a hardass. My philosophy in life is that if you're going to get run over you may as well do it properly; imagine explaining to your friends that you got your two broken legs from being hit by a Prius.
This kind of cockpit makes me think of a fighter jet with a sun roof, and of the unlikely cosiness of the F355 GTS, which coincidentally is an exact contemporary of the NSX-T (both 1995). While the F355 may evoke much more of the pizzazz that you would expect to be inherent in a Ferrari, it probably isn't as scary in the corners. Relatively unusually for a Japanese (read 'sensible') car, NSX drivers know to ignore the old maxim 'never lift' in the corners, unless you want to contort yourself to the extent that you're staring your own arse in the face.
Both the F355 and the NSX weigh almost exactly the same; manually speaking the former has a 6-speed to the latter's 5 or 6-speed gearbox, but the Ferrari does shaft the NSX on speed and acceleration. Having said that, the NSX was never originally intended to compete with the F335, rather the 328 and then 348. So it comes down to badassness, and to be a bit subjective, the 348 was a wet fart in between the 328 and F355. I suppose what I'm saying is that although the F355 GTS is one of my top favs of all time, I think I'd rather own an NSX-T, it's just that bit more badass.
