The Honda NSX Type R (shortened as NSX-R) was a track-oriented variant of the first-generation Honda NSX sports car. It was sold exclusively in limited quantities for the Japanese domestic market.

A key focus during development was maximum track performance with little consideration for driving comfort, which prompted the removal of luxury features found on regular models, bringing it to a total weight of only 1230 kg.

As the standard NSX was known to be somewhat tail-happy, the entirety of the suspension was overhauled to give the car a stiffer ride.

Production lasted from November 1992 to September 1995.
