When Acura announced earlier this summer that they were returning to prototype racing with a two-car Team Penske-led IMSA DPi effort, we couldn’t help but to be excited about it. Now Acura unveiled the car that Penske hopes is made out of 100 percent pure domination-anium, the ARX-05.
Acura sold just 64 RLX sedans across the entire United States last month. The car either needed to be dragged out back and put down or dosed with some of that steroidal energy the NSX has been suckling on. Well, the 2018 Acura RLX has landed and it really wants you to take this “Sport Hybrid” thing seriously.
America’s fancy-Honda brand Acura is getting back into racing prototypes with a two-car Team Penske IMSA DPi effort, Team Penske announced today. Acura last raced a purpose-built racing prototype when the American Le Mans Series was still a thing at the start of this decade, but those cars were later rebranded as…
You finally have a reason to care about the Acura ILX: at least one of them has survived the crucible of 200,000 miles of usage, and we have painfully detailed notes on its maintenance to see what it actually took to keep this little car running for so long over such a short period of time.
The new Acura NSX is a car too fun for its own right, constantly begging you to hoon it through its mere existence. Fortunately, there is an easy surefire way to get your need for noise and revs out: donuts.
One of the strange things about this job is that we often get to drive cars 100 times nicer than our own. In my case, that figure is probably closer to 1 million. Yesterday, when I stepped out of my beat-up 1992 Jeep Cherokee and into a 2017 Acura NSX, I had to recalibrate my mind.
Every car has a purpose (besides the obvious one, which is to make money for car companies). Some are made for families with multiple children. Some are for convertible fun on a good back road. But the purpose of the Acura Integra Type R was incredibly singular: the business of giant-slaying.
The Michael Shank Racing duo of Andy Lally and Katherine Legge got the Acura NSX GT3 its first class win in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race at Belle Isle Park over the weekend, with Legge also celebrating her first-career victory in the WeatherTech series.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the stories you need to know for your next dinner party.
Acura believes that awkward looks—not drivetrain, features or anything else—were what kept buyers from flocking to the TLX reports Automotive News. So, for their refreshed TLX, ditching the giant silver jaw-thing was priority number one. Thank goodness.
An Acura NSX is a nice place to sit. You ride low in a comfortable leather-wrapped cockpit designed for driving pleasure and speed. But when you know what that 573 horsepower supercar is capable of, being forced to drive it slowly and responsibly over normal city roads is the worst.
When Acura stuffed the NSX’s hybrid system into its three-row MDX people mover, they did what few rarely achieve: they made a big luxury crossover fun to drive. Not only is the MDX Sport Hybrid one of the most fun factory sleepers you can buy, it’s cheaper than most of its cushy hybrid crossover rivals, too.
A 2017 Acura NSX is already up for auction, and it probably has something to do with it being completely mangled in a crash.
It’s not hard to fall into a state of despair if you’re in need of a fun, reliable, daily driver but don’t have that much money to spend. The distress might make you want to crawl under the covers, eat ice cream all day while watching the second season of Fuller House. But, don’t worry, cheer up and turn off Fuller…
For your own mental health, don’t watch this video of a Lexus SUV turning a gorgeous Acura NSX into a crumpled soda can. Just don’t. It’s not worth the anguish and long therapy sessions.
Like so many of us, Tyson Hugie dreamed of one day owning a very specific car collection. Classic 4x4s? European sports cars? Nah, man—early 90’s Acuras. It doesn’t sound too intrinsically exciting, but looking at this fleet. I think he might actually be on to something here.
Do you have a BMW 340i or an Audi S4? You better keep an eye out in your rearview mirror. The 2017 Acura TLX GT is coming for you, and it’s bringing the rest of the alphabet with it!
