  • Acura ARX-05 prototype race car

    Acura will field this new prototype race car, the ARX-05, in the 2018 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, the automaker announced Friday. The fifth-generation endurance racer takes the ORECA 07 chassis and powers it with a distant relative of the V-6 engine Acura fits to its sedans and SUVs. The engine's also been seen in the Pirelli World Challenge GT division, where it's been fitted to the Acura NSX GT3 race car (a car you can have now, for a cool half-million bucks).

  • 2018 Acura RLX
    2018 Acura RLX gets new look, but will it be enough to compete?

    The Acura RLX hasn't exactly been a sales blockbuster. Last year, Acura sold a grand total of 1,478 of them while BMW parted with 32,408 5-Series and Mercedes sold 46,740 E-Classes. Now, Acura is hoping a new look will boost sales. Ahead of its public debut during Monterey Car Week August 15-19...

    Take a lap of the Nürburgring in the Acura NSX

    Nürburgring lap videos typically fall into one of only a handful of categories. There are the manic, on-the-limit attempts to set blistering times. There are also videos highlighting bad driving or even crashes. Other times, there are simply automaker marketing pieces to show off the latest...

It has a big turbo, some serious aero modifications, and a singular goal of going very fast over the course of a 1/2-mile of runway. Myles holds the record in this space for...

  • 2017 Acura NSX does donuts

    Inquiring minds wonder: will the 2017 Acura NSX do donuts? The short answer: yes, yes it will. But, what brought about this fresh batch of donuts and all the show and smoke that comes with it? IMSA driver Katherine Legge decided it was her time to have a little bit of fun after the NSX GT3 racer won at the Detroit Grand Prix last month. Her teammate, Andy Lally, was given the chance to perform the ceremonial victory donuts, however. That's why she's her, and she didn't hold back for the video. Like the NSX of yore, the 2017 Acura NSX is still a technological marvel, but a primitive instinct...

  • 2000 Acura Integra shipped from California to Ohio
    I bought an Acura Integra GS-R from across the country and it was hardly a simple process

    I live in Ohio, specifically, Northeast Ohio. It's not easy to find nice things in this part of the country. That should be all you need to know about why I didn't start looking for cars in my home state—salty roads mean rusty cars. It's a shame. I was stupid a few years ago and sold my...

  • 2018 Acura TLX A-Spec

    A jack of all trades, the 2018 Acura TLX is so balanced it fades among more daring, extroverted rivals. A mid-cycle update rather than a full-scale redesign, the 2018 Acura TLX hammers yet another nail in the coffin of Acura's hated shield grille. The new grille stretches more horizontally and sits higher on the front bumper. It looks lighter as a result, and gives the TLX a face that begs to be seen in person. The rest of Acura's exterior changes are much subtler. A new bumper here, taillights there, and bigger tires headline the updates. The result of this work is neither conservative nor...
