  • Acura NSX Roadster prop from Avengers movie

    Having appeared briefly as Tony Stark’s ride in the movie The Avengers last year, this Acura NSX Roadster movie prop may end up spawning a production version. Honda confirmed to Autocar that a convertible version of its new NSX was being considered, and if the green light is given the car could be on sale two years after the coupe is launched, meaning a likely release date in 2017. Readers may recall that the original NSX had an open-top version, too. However, this was a targa with removable roof panels and any new NSX will likely feature an automated folding roof. The NSX Roadster that...

    A year ago, when Acura first announced that its RL flagship sedan was to be replaced by a new model called the RLX, the Japanese automaker rolled out a thinly-veiled concept version of the new RLX that was powered by an advanced hybrid system similar to the drivetrain destined for the new NSX...

    2014 Acura TSX Priced From $31,530

  • Honda NSX Concept-GT

    Honda has given us our first look at the new race car it plans to compete with in the premier GT500 class of Japan’s Super GT touring car series from next year onwards. The new race car is still in the concept phase but it already closely resembles the final version due on the grid next year. It is called the NSX Concept-GT and is based on the second-generation Acura NSX sports car due out in 2015. It complies with Super GT’s revised regulations coming into play next year, as prescribed by the Japan Automobile Federation. The regulations now more closely match those of...

  • 2015 Acura TLX spy shots

    Acura will launch a mid-size sedan next year that will serve as the replacement for both the TL and TSX lines, and we have the first spy shots of a prototype for it. The new sedan is expected to be labeled the TLX and fill the gap between the ILX and new RLX flagship, with Acura’s reformed lineup mimicking that of most rival makes in the luxury segment. Underpinning the car will be a premium version of the platform underpinning the Honda Accord. Lighter materials may help engineers save weight on the Acura version. In the powertrain department, the TLX is likely to launch initially with...

    With the introduction of the ILX, Acura’s aging TSX has been forced to compete with a much newer model that’s almost the same size and occupies a similar price segment. This has led to suggestion that the TSX may be dropped from Acura’s lineup or perhaps even merged with the TL to...

  • Acura NSX II concept - 2013 Detroit Auto Show

    Performance cars are about to enter a new era, one destined to be dominated by vehicle electrification, and in typical fashion it is the world of motorsport where the technology has been bred. It should come as little surprise then that the first round of electrified performance cars is coming from automakers heavily involved in motorsports, namely, Ferrari, McLaren and Porsche. However, Acura, too, is working on an electrified performance car of its own, a new hybrid sports car that will revive its storied NSX badge. The new NSX will be nothing like the original, though that is to be...
