    In recent years the internet has given us the joy and pain with the sighting of various supercars being abandoned in random places. This latest find though is a bit of a tough one to take.

    This first generation Honda NSX was sighted abandoned in a Russian forest, and according to the pictures, it’s been at one with nature for several harsh winters. The picture of this sorry looking JDM classic surfaced on a Reddit thread over the weekend, with users quickly getting to work to confirm exactly how this NSX came to such a tragic fate.

    For those of you in the know, the Honda NSX was introduced in 1990 with Ayrton Senna as its official test pilot, throughout its life-cycle it barely changed in the 15 plus years it was in production. In the NSX's last year of production, less than 25 cars were sold in the UK meaning its very rare with good examples going for high five-figure sums in 2017.

    According to Drive2.ru, this NSX was imported from Germany in 2005 by its first owner. The car was then handed to a Moscow based tuning company with the remit for a 1,000hp twin-turbo upgrade. One downside of the array of upgrades was the escalating cost. The biggest issue around all this cost was the owner's reluctance to pay for the tuning company to see the work through to completion.

    From here the car's owner and the tuner had a sizeable falling out, resulting in the plug being pulled on the work. The tuner kept the engine, with the owner receiving his now engine-less NSX back before it was somehow left to rot in a forest for an unconfirmed period.

    Somehow though, the story has a sort of happy ending. The NSX has been saved and recovered from its leafy gravesite by a local garage. As you can see from the picture below, the car cleans up pretty well considering what it’s been through. For now, the NSX remains with the unnamed garage giving us hope that it receives a new engine and that it sees the open road again.

    Do you think this NSX is worth saving? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
