Bit of both.
They brought it back from an auction on eBay for mega money (near 10K i think they were saying) then cleaned it up for keeps...
They have done the same with this NSX except they have owned this from new if I'm correct:

They displayed it with the new shape civic on a stand:

Thats why I work for a Honda dealer ;)

My DP owns a NSX (9K on clock!!) and I had to take it for a drive to listen for rattles - such a weird feeling when the PAS turns off (around 30mph) especially when you are on a round about :S nice cars, bastard to work on :(

Plus, officially, you have to be a Honda Approved NSX Tech in order to do any major work (cambelt and up) (this is mainly for warranty)

The civic is a nice motor though, soooo clean

The yellow civic was Honda's UK press and test car back in 75'
a lucky find for them and a rare survivor.
they reunited the press bod from back then with the car at new shape civic launch apparently
I worked for Honda during 88 to 95 and can say they are an epic company to spanner for
