You and your best friend do everything together. Go to the movies together. Go on vacation together. Read the same books. Watch the same TV shows and hit the same mileage milestones in your awesome Acuras. Friendship is a miracle!
Making rounds on the internet is a video apparently showing police officers rush a mechanic’s shop near Atlanta, Georgia after hearing loud, rapid banging noises. Those noises, the police thought, came from a gun, but in reality, they were produced by a modified Japanese sports coupe.
Back in ‘95, I was not particularly concerned with Acura’s lineup. I didn’t care much about cars in general then, but if anything interested me it was going to be the muscle cars and European sports cars of the ‘60s and early ‘70s. How little I knew.
We’ve been big fans of what Honda’s been up to lately, what with fast and fun stuff like the Civic Type R and the NSX. Besides that expensive supercar, however, the fun hasn’t really trickled up to the Acura luxury brand—the last TLX we drove was far more dull than it looked. But Acura seems intent on fixing that by…
Acura has never been more American than it is now. After three straight years of selling more than 50,000 RDXs here, we’re getting the first one designed and developed in the States in the form of the 2019 Acura RDX.
I like to save a buck wherever I can. I like doing this so much that I cut my kitchen sponges and only use one half at a time to make the pack last longer. My kind and considerate friends say I’m “frugal,” but let’s just call it what it is: I am a cheap bastard and these car deals have me extremely interested.
This year, Wayne Taylor Racing has been the team to beat in the WeatherTech Sports Car Championship, having a championship title all but in the bag before they even showed up to the season finale. It’s largely in part to the ultra-fast sons of Wayne Taylor, and now one of them will be driving an Acura next year.
When I first walked up to the 2018 Acura TLX A-Spec, I had to circle it a few times. It looked good—really good, even. The color was perfect, the styling was right along those lines and it looked, surprisingly, like a genuinely enjoyable sedan. Then I got in it.
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.
