This is painful to watch.
The original Acura NSX is one of the most iconic Japanese sports cars of the 1990s. Its mid-mounted V6 configuration was unusual for its time and its extensive use of aluminum was revolutionary. Nearly 30 years later, the original Acura NSX is still adored by enthusiasts.
For YouTuber Chris Cut, it was love at first sight when he first saw the NSX's jet fighter-inspired design. It became his dream car, which explains why he has several in his collection. Chris has even modified one by fitting a tent to the roof to make it more practical.
Chris plans to take his modified 1996 Acura NSX Targa for a cross country road trip across the US with his dog in a couple of months. All that's missing is a trailer. To rectify this, Chris acquired another NSX that will be cut in half and used as a trailer towed by the other NSX. A roofbox will also be fitted to the tow car.
Chopping up the iconic Japanese sports car sounds sacrilegious, but before you get your pitchforks out, the NSX being used for this unusual build project isn't in working order - it's a junk car stripped to its bare shell. Originally, Chris wanted to convert the scrapped NSX into a track car but this won't be cheap since there's no front clip, drivetrain, or interior, so he decided to convert it into a trailer instead to be used on his cross country adventure.
Chris was considering removing the rear end and keeping the roof intact as one piece, but he instead decided to chop the NSX cleanly in half between the A- and B-pillars, which you can watch in his latest video showing the car's amputation surgery. Even though it's a junk car, it's still painful to watch.
The project is still a work in progress, but Chris has provided some renders to show what it will look like when it's completed with matching red paint. We're very intrigued to see the finished result, but it's safe to say that an NSX towing another NSX cut in half will be a very unusual sight on the road.
