Cosa c'č realmente sotto il cofano delle Stars
Acura NSX-T 2003
"Some of the casting directors are regular patrons of my Hookah bar," informs Vance, "When the call went our for a car for Jordana's character to drive, they immediately thought of my NSX.
" Some might be surprised to learn that Vance's car is the most heavily modified of the three, by far. Don't. Subtly is a strong virtue among car builders, one that is all-but unseen on the big screen. Aside from the slew of genuine NSX-R upgrades-- "They were impossible to find," Vance assures--this NSX breathes easier with an ultra-rare Mugen carbon fiber airbox, Fujitsubo exhaust manifold with test pipes, and Bel Canto Soprano exhaust; one of Vance's own creations, that gives it a ridiculously JGTC-like din that only an upscale car of its caliber could pull off on the street. Inside, are even more authentic NSX-R goodies, including an original pair of NA1 NSX-R red Recaros-- thought to be the first such set to make it to U.S. shores.
Even more legit, is the car's prototype NSX-R suspension. When we say that it was the same set used by Gan San of Best Motoring International during his record-setting NA2 NSX-R Nurburgring lap time of 7:56, we mean that it was literally wrenched off his car after the race, and onto Vance's... don't ask us how he managed to pull that one off.
"To other NSX owners out there, I say, `Don't half-ass it!'" Vance says, "You are representing the Honda family with the greatest car to ever come out of Japan!'"
Most of Sean's job dealt with teaching the actors proper hand and foot movements-- counter-steering, heel-toe shifting, left-foot braking--for "inserts" in scenes where stunt doubles couldn't be used. "Some of the actors, like Paul, picked it up pretty quick," says Sean, "But others... I accidentally hurt Vin Diesel's hand, trying to counter-steer for him in a buck [a chopped prop car] with two steering wheels. Vin was like, `Bro, you gotta tell me when you're gonna do that.' " he recalls, "I think he was kinda pissed."
