Wheelbase 101.3 in (2,573 mm)
Length 173.7 in (4,412 mm)
Width 74.6 in (1,895 mm)
Height 48.2 in (1,224 mm)
Curb weight 3,097 lb (1,405 kg)
 
I like that curb weight! It's difficult to get a car these days close to 3,000 lbs.
 
I am a Honda (Acura) NSX (1990-2005) enthusiast having owned several cars and currently have 2001 and 2004 examples. Most modern cars have many features that put me off them compared to the original NSX one being size. The Emira hits the sweet spots for me of , mid ICE engine, manual box, relatively low and small.

I have placed a deposit but will not sell the NSX.

Here are the original NSX sizes for comparison - you will see the similarity :

Length 4405 cm
Width 1810 cm
Height 1170 cm
Wheel base 2530 cm
Weight NSXR 1230 , standard car or 1370kg

above based on NA1 cars 1990-1997.

Here is a photo of my 2001 NSX and a GT4, which is a great car by the way but although it is slightly in the foreground the size and proportions are not as pleasing to my eye as the NSX or Emira.

The GT4 is indeed a great car! I had one for a while and loved the driving experience past 5,000 rpms :cool:

Wow, those are some nice GT4s! That is certainly a unique car and you don't see many on the road.
 
I measured my Jaguar f-type against the Emira. Almost exactly same length, almost exactly same width, Emira is about 2" lower at the roof, but weighs about 850lbs. less!
That helps put it into perspective, thanks!
