Welcome to the Melbourne Crown casino

Casinos are lands of glitz, glamour and money. Naturally, they attract people with plenty of cash, who attract high-dollar merchandise in turn. So it only made sense to bring this NSX at the Melbourne Crown casino in Australia.

This particular NSX is not only pricey, but rare, since it's the only one in Australia. More are on their way, and they will go on sale on December 1, but for the time being, this is the only one in the country. As a result, there was more pressure to get the car into the casino than normal, and it was a task more difficult than driving a Ford Fiesta through a shopping mall.

Getting started

The process started some time between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m. at one of the casino's entrances.

The first step

Once the car arrived, the driver began inching it through the entrance under electric power only.

Anybody need breakfast?

The first, and possibly most difficult, obstacle was the food court.

One very tight drive-thru

On one side were check-out counters...

Very, very tight

...and on the other were massive, polished columns.

The worst kind of sharp corner

Corners had to be harrowing. Especially with those sharp stone corners jutting out, waiting to bite into the paint.

It gets through with a little help from friends

It's a good thing the NSX's wide wing mirrors fold in, and that there were plenty of spotters to help lead the car through.

On the home stretch

Past the food court and down halls with boutiques, things got a bit easier thanks to wider walkways.

Eventually, the NSX wound its way to its destination, the base of a large staircase. A bit of back-and-forth maneuvering put it into its final display space. The car will remain on display for 10 days.
