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.

2015 Mercedes-Benz C300 4MATIC Tested: An Effective Weapon in the Entry-Luxury Wars

Sep 29 2014 4:55pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

During the Mercedes-Benz family’s most recent growth spurt, the entry-luxe CLA and the top dog Mercedes-AMG GT S have grabbed inordinate attention. More significant is how the new C-class fares against rising hostility in the premium compact-sedan class. Traditionally, Audi has been the style and luxury leader and BMW has defined exemplary performance, while Cadillac’s ATS, Acura’s TLX, and the latest Lexus IS are fresh party crashers. B ...

Well, damn—what we have here is a 918 Spyder that went all GT3. Or NSX. Or Gallardo. Or, well, any supercar, because we’re pretty sure “burns to the ground with a fiery incandescence matched only by its ability to warp faces” is listed among the standard features for anything with more than 475 horsepower. The 918 seen here is allegedly owned by Canadian investor and TV personality Michael Wekerle. It is said to have gone up when overflowing fuel and its associated vapors were ig ...

Everything you need to know about car suspensions

Sep 26 2014 2:07pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Finally, the all-new Mustang has arrived in the 21st century with a proper, multi-link independent rear suspension. Corner-carving is up. Chatter from the rear tires over broken pavement is down. Yes, there’s a slight weight penalty versus the old live-axle setup, but the handling benefits are huge. What’s among the exciting new parts coming from Ford Racing for this mighty beast? A swap-in kit for an old-fashioned solid rear axle – wait, what? ...

Acura ILX 2.4L Premium - Driven

Sep 26 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

The last time Acura made a compact luxury car based on the Civic we received the RSX, which had a cult-like following but ultimately didn’t fit what Acura was trying to be. After only five model years, Acura laid the RSX to rest and left the Civic alone for a few years. With the luxury compact sedan market as hot as it had ever been, Acura chose to meddle with the Civic again and released the 2013 ILX. Initially, the ILX had three drivetrains available: two gasoline drivetr ...
