The President of Russia Likes the NSX Too

Russian dict-, excuse me, President-elect Vladimir Putin is well-known for striking an incredible array of James Bond poses for the camera, including but not limited to driving a Formula One car and riding a trike with a gang of bikers.

This picture, taken in 1993—around the time he transitioned from being a KGB spy to being a city administrator in St. Petersburg, occupations which may or may not have overlapped—shows him appreciating the finer details of Honda’s then-almost-new NSX.
