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.

SUV Review: 2015 Lincoln MKC

Respect is typically the most sparsely gifted of all human qualities, doled out so infrequently that it makes altruism, charity and benevolence seem as common as the trinkets at the bottom of a Cracker Jack box. Rodney couldn’t get any (no matter how much he made us laugh). Aretha had to spell it out letter by letter that women of her era might finally demand some. And Stephen Harper has been the freakin’ pri ...

Jul 29 2014 3:12pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Affordability right now is exceptional says George Iny, president of Canada’s Automobile Protection Agency. But there’s a lot more to buying a vehicle than what you can “afford” every month. Most people today are paying for their vehicles through monthly installments or leasing them, he says. “If you don’t have any money to put down, the monthly payment on a brand new small car is frequently the same or lower than buying the same car used, and that’s one of the reasons why new car sales are s ...
