    A prototype for Acura’s second-generation NSX supercar only started testing at the Nürburgring yesterday, but already the car has been destroyed. The prototype caught fire during today's round of testing but fortunately the driver managed to pull over and jump out before the flames spread to the rest of the car. Onlookers said the fire started at the rear before engulfing the rest. The latest photos show the car as it is burning, a roaring fire completely enveloping the rear compartment before safety crews arrive to put out the flames. The rear is where the car’s...

    2015 Acura MDX Sees Slight Price Increase

    Time Spent With A 2005 Acura NSX Is Time Well Spent

    I was born in 1980, which means I really came of age in the 1990s. That period was a bit of a sweet spot for fans of Japanese sports cars. It's no surprise then that I'm rather attracted to iron from the Land of the Rising Sun. This attraction has fostered a love of everything from the older Datsun...

  • 2016 Honda HR-V

    At last year’s Tokyo Motor Show, Honda rolled out a new model called the Vezel that it confirmed would eventually go on sale in the U.S. where it would compete in the burgeoning subcompact crossover segment. At last week’s New York Auto Show, the American version of the Vezel made its debut, wearing the HR-V name. The new HR-V will be in showrooms this winter, as a 2015 model, and will be fitted exclusively with a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine shared with the 2015 Fit. That’s not all the two cars will share, as both ride on the same front-wheel-drive platform. Though...

  • 1992 Acura NSX once owned by Ayrton Senna

    You can barely bring up the three letters N, S and X in car-guy company without somebody mentioning Ayrton Senna. The racing legend only had a small impact on Honda's development program for the original NSX but a few photographs and videos here and there mean the car has forever been immortalized by the late Formula One champion's input. The Brazilian racer did own a couple during his time with Honda-supplied teams too, and another of those cars is now up for auction with Silverstone Auctions in the U.K. MUST SEE: Watch A Hennessey-Tuned Chevy SS Run The Quarter Mile In 11.84 Seconds: Video...
