Illustration for article titled Is This The First Public Crash Of The 2017 Acura NSX?

Chassis 0000 of the brand new 2017 Acura NSX crashed on Taiwan’s Wang Kung Temple Provincial Highway, per the Downshift Facebook page. The car hit a hard barrier in the middle of the highway, crunching in the front left corner and setting off the airbags inside.

This is reportedly the same chassis that’s being test driven by journalists around the world. The car was being test driven by a member of the Taiwanese car media, according to both Downshift and 7tune’s Facebook pages that posted the crash. The driver—whoever he is—claimed to Taiwan News that he was stung by a bee, per Downshift.


So, uh, how big of a “bee” was this, exactly, and was it occupying the driver’s seat at the time?
