You Will Cry Watching This Beautiful Acura NSX Get Pummeled By An SUV

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.

Dammit, I told you not to! But you’re sick and enjoy watching beautiful things go to their metal deaths. Suit yourself:

Today I chatted with Sammy Manivong, the man who posted the traumatizing video to Facebook yesterday. In our short exchange, I gathered that Sammy was test driving a car in Westminster, California yesterday, when he saw an NSX with gorgeous Enkei RPF1 wheels.


Keen to record the beautiful sight, he whipped out his phone and filmed the car driving by, just as a Lexus RX blew through a red light and destroyed the front end of one of the most legendary Japanese supercars in history.

Sammy’s response “Oh no way! Awww!” is the appropriate response. Along with a bunch of weeping, which I’m going to assume took place after this video cut out.
