Feast Your JDM Loving Eyes On This Honda Civic Type R EK Wagon

Okay, so it's not actually an EK9 wagon, although that would be really, really cool. This is in fact a marriage of two different Honda vehicles which share parts: a Civic and an Orthia. And despite this being JDM as hell, this actually isn't Japan. It's Hong Kong. Still totally badass. EK WAGON, GUYS. GET EXCITED. » 1/31/15 9:00am Today 9:00am

Honda Is Planning An Entire Family Of Turbo Engines With VTEC, Yo

File this under things I never thought I'd have to say, but the Honda and Acura lineup could use a serious injection of fun. The 2016 NSX and new Honda Civic Type R are good starts, even if we may not get the latter in America.

Honda's UNI-CUB Is Amazing, Least-Efficient Water Delivery System Ever

During their press conference, Honda demonstrated their UNI-CUB motorized chair-thing, which they're using to develop the world's least-efficient method of single water-bottle delivery.

Bad news if your team is running Mercedes power in Formula One: the FIA admitted that there's no hard date in the rules to submit a final engine design by for homologation, thus allowing mid-season upgrades.

Every Honda Cub Should Have A 15-Shot Of NOS

Sometimes adding another 100cc to a Honda Cub just isn't enough. The developing world's chariot of choice needs more. Pip Davidson answered that call, taking a cue from the Honda tuning world with his 1967 Cub 90 by adding a 24-hp Daytona Animal engine and then – just for good measure – a 15-shot of nitrous.
