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 Acura TLX: First Drive

Aug 29 2014 8:57am CDT | Source: Cars.com

For years the TL sedan was Acura's bread-and-butter sedan. It was a strong seller until a radical redesign in 2009. The brand has been trying to recover ever since and hopes an all-new version with an all-new name will return the brand to luxury-sedan success. Related: 2015 Acura TLX: First Look The TLX not only replaces the TL, but also the smaller TSX sedan — which was less controversial but didn't fit properly in the brand's ...

Tesla Model S now the least-stolen car in the US

Aug 28 2014 6:10pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: EV/Plug-in, Green Culture, Tesla Motors When is a Honda Accord more appealing than a Tesla Model S? When you're a thief. The Accord continues to reign as the most-stolen car in the US but the Model S is now claiming a new and interesting title: the least-stolen car in America. Last year, it wasn't even on the list. Of course, sometimes a Model S is stolen and the most famous case ended with tragic results. Last year there was an eight-way tie for "least ...

Luxury Lugging: Towing My Track-Prepped Integra with a New Cadillac Escalade

Aug 28 2014 11:08am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Yesterday, when we posted to our Facebook page our instrumented test of the 2015 Cadillac Escalade, the commenters went nuts. Not over the lumbering SUV, mind you, but over the car it was towing in the picture: my personal track vehicle, a 1998 Acura Integra GSR. Seriously, the vast majority of 250-plus comments focused on my ’Teg. Here, to calm the howling masses, are some details about my car and the story of how it came to be behind the Cadillac—it wasn’t simply a photo prop. It’s w ...

1997 Acura Integra Type R: An Icon Among Front-Drive Cars [C/D Archives]

Aug 27 2014 2:46pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

At a blaring 8400 rpm, the Acura Integra Type R’s pistons are pedaling at about 80 feet per second—much higher than the commonly accepted threshold of 67 feet per second. That’s close to the piston speeds in Formula 1 and Indy-car engines, which have much shorter strokes than the under-square Integra powerplant. Still, you don’t think much about piston speeds at full throttle. It’s the sound you think about. That intense, fervent bellow radiating from the engine absorbs every bit of your ...
