Acura just dropped some nasty, sweaty, hot details on pricing for the new 2017 NSX. Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but here are some numbers and dates for those of you looking to get some NSX-iness.
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to discuss the new Acura NSX, which is a mythical beast whose existence has been debated since the days when we first learned what a “hanging chad” was.
Life is a farce, an endless series of trials resembling experience and consciousness concluding with death. But also it has NSX donuts.
We’ve been following Honda on Twitter for a while, and two days ago they tweeted something so seemingly innocuous, we scrolled right past it. (Update: it’s not what we all thought.)
For the last couple of years the NSX Concept-GT has looked pretty good, but it’s mostly been a lot of black on white on white on white. So Honda Japan decided it needed to get with the program and use a little more of that red its so known for. So here’s your video of the NSX Concept-GT getting its “coloring.”
I know it's been in development so long it was accused of being vaporware. I know Acura bungled its launch hard over a period of years. And I know it now runs the risk of being "just another" hybrid performance car. I don't care, I'm still excited and optimistic about the 2016 Acura NSX.
More than $50,000 for a Japanese sports car? From a country that, a scant quarter-century ago, produced exercises in rolling gingerbread that slogged along with modified forklift engines? And from a company that, until recently, specialized in bread-and-butter sedans and zippy little commuter cars? Well, lo and…
On Feb. 10, 1989, executives from Honda and a newly founded division known as Acura piled into a conference room in Chicago's historic Drake Hotel to rehearse the unveiling of an unbelievable new car—a Technicolor vision for the future, something never before built by Honda or any Japanese automaker.
The 2015 Acura NSX! Honda swears up and down that the much-teased successor to the greatest Japanese car ever made will be a real thing next year. For serious. Really!
How would you like to own a copy of the greatest Japanese car of all time owned by the legendary racing driver who had a hand in its development? At a British auction in February, you could have a shot at owning what could be considered THE Honda NSX.
An invitation to the Hungaroring. An old but cleverly tuned Honda Civic to drive. A mixer friend's birthday the night before. The recipe for my first drive at a Formula-1 track.
Well, maybe you wouldn't try and fling Japan's legendary Ferrari rival as sideways as possible. But this guy certainly does.
Paul White of Ham Lake, Minnesota is a lucky fellow. On August 7, he became one of three people nationwide to hit the Powerball jackpot, getting his share of $448 million split three ways. What he plans to do with that money should make any Jalopnik reader stand up and cheer.
Details remain fairly scarce about the new Acura NSX supposedly headed to production next year, but we now know one thing from its recent showing at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course: it should be faster than a Honda Accord.
While the story is that the Acura NSX prototype will lap Mid-Ohio ahead of today's IndyCar race, then be quickly spirited back off to secrecy, the reality is that the car's been out in the open this weekend.
The Honda NSX was a classic the day it was born. With its perfect proportions and those sleek lines, it is the archetype for the mid-engined sportscar.
By now, everyone has heard that Honda is coming back to Formula 1 as an engine supplier. Turbo V6 engines will be the regulated standard for the premier motorsports starting in 2014, and Honda will reenter the sport in 2015 once they've spent a great deal of time engineering the new motor.
Everyone knows Acura is about luxury. "But to enthusiasts," John Davis begins, "that brand also stands for speed." Well, not so much anymore. But back in 1997, it sure as hell did, as this clip from MotorWeek undoubtedly proves.
