NSX prototype to lap mid-Ohio race track

Acura has announced that it will be officially unveiling a running prototype of its new NSX sports car at the mid-Ohio Raceway prior to the Honda Indy 200 race. The prototype vehicle will feature custom graphics and is set to lap the road course before the official race kicks off on August 4. The race will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network at 3 PM on August 4.

Honda says the prototype maintains the styling in proportions from the NSX Concept that was first seen during the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The production car uses a mid-mounted V-6 engine.

The prototype also uses Acura's three-motor Sport Hybrid SH-AWD all wheel drive system. There is no word on when the production vehicle will roll in the showrooms or how much it will cost.

Oct 20 2014 4:13pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued an urgent plea to more than 4.7 million car owners whose air bag inflators have been recalled to get them repaired. The air bags, especially in areas along the coast with high absolute humidity, have inflators that can rupture. If the air bags go off in a crash, that can send shrapnel into the passenger compartment and injure people. Below is the list of models covered by recalls that dat ...

“Substantially New” 2016 Acura ILX to Bow in L.A., Doesn’t Appear Substantially Different

Oct 20 2014 2:50pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Acura’s ILX compact sedan has been a near total sales dud. Sure, the idea of wrapping the Honda Civic’s bones in fancier clothes and ladling on an extra helping of refinement sounds good—and it worked in Canada!—but that’s not exactly how the ILX turned out when it hit the market as a 2013 model. Yet don’t bury the thing just yet, because Acura has announced it will debut a refreshed version at th ...

The Lame Acura ILX May Not Be So Lame After 2016 Refresh

Oct 20 2014 1:13pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

I think the problem with Acura these days is that they really aren't given much to work with. That's why the entry-level Acura ILX is basically a dressed-up Honda Civic Si , and also why it hasn't sold especially well. But Acura says they have big changes for the ILX coming soon. Read m ...

Filed under: LA Auto Show, Sedan, Crossover, Acura, Honda Honda has already showcased its new Fit-based crossover around the world. We've seen it in Tokyo wearing the Vezel name and we've seen it in Paris in 'prototype' form. We've even seen photos of the US-spec version. We just haven't seen that North American model in the flesh, but that'll all be fixed next month at the Los Angeles Auto Show. That's where Honda will, at long last, unveil the US v ...

Acura to refresh ILX sedan in time for L.A. Auto Show

Oct 20 2014 11:30am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Acura is getting ready to debut a refreshed version of its ILX compact sedan at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November. The ILX hasn’t been a strong seller for Acura in North America, which is likely why the automaker is reworking the model with a “substantially new” facelift which the company hopes will provide “a sharper performance focus while delivering a greater set of high-value comfort, convenience and safety fea ...

Updated 2016 Acura ILX To Debut At Los Angeles Auto Show

Oct 20 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: Motor Authority

Acura had high hopes for its newest gateway vehicle, the ILX compact sedan, which was introduced at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show. The idea behind its creation seemed logical enough: by basing an Acura model on the Honda Civic, the automaker could lower the price of entry and attract a younger, hipper audi ...

New Honda HR-V, 2016 Acura ILX to Debut at 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show

Oct 20 2014 10:30am CDT | Source: Cars.com

Honda and its Acura luxury division plan to debut at least two vehicles at next month's 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. One is Honda's latest — and smallest — SUV, the HR-V; the first exterior images of the tiny crossover appeared last April. As we expected, Honda says the Fit-based HR-V will slot below the popular CR-V, which means it should compete against a burgeoning segment of entry-level crossovers like the Nissan Juke and Chevrolet Trax. Honda also ...
