It would be a terrible cliché, one quite frowned upon in motoring journalism circles, if I were to begin this article by saying that every so often a car comes along that simply rips up the rulebook, and back in 1990 the original Honda NSX was one of those, but I'm afraid it seems I just have. It is true, though. You see prior to the NSX, supercars were difficult buggers, with recalcitrant gearboxes and awkward driving positions and intractable powertrains. If you could see out of one you were lucky, and you were indeed blessed if you could complete a whole journey without needing the AA. However wonderful some of them looked - and some of them looked very wonderful indeed - the truth is that today you could probably drive much faster on nearly all roads in a modern Vauxhall Astra diesel, and much more reliably too. What set the aluminium NSX apart was that it was easy to drive and easy to see out of and wonderfully docile around town. It was also in most respects unburstable, … [Read more...] about Honda NSX: Spotted
Cela marquerait la fin d'une longue attente. Voilà des années que l'on parle d'une potentielle commercialisation de la version découvrable de la Honda NSX. Du côté du constructeur japonais, rien n'a été confirmé ni même infirmé. Cela laisse donc place aux rumeurs, que le site Autobild vient une nouvelle fois de remettre sur la table. Selon les journalistes d'Autobild, le constructeur Honda pourrait présenter en 2018, la NSX Roadster. Cela est bien évidemment à prendre avec des pincettes, car la source de cette information ne semble n'être ni interne ni proche du dossier.

Honda is reportedly gearing up to release an NSX Roadster before the end of 2018, according to German publication Autobild. Given the popularity of drop-top supercars, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if the Japanese automaker does indeed cut the roof of its hybrid supercar. As of yet, however, our spy photographers have yet to see an NSX Roadster testing in the wild so if the car is indeed launching in the coming months, Honda has been very secretive about putting it through its paces. Any possible convertible version of the Honda NSX would inevitably feature the same powertrain as the hardtop. Consequently, the car would use a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to three electric motors to deliver a combined 573 hp and 476 lb-ft of torque. That grunt would be enough to send an NSX Roadster to 62 mph (100 km/h) in roughly 3 seconds. As it stands, the NSX coupe is one of the most attractive cars in its segment. Chop the roof off and revise the rear decklid with a pair of … [Read more...] about Honda NSX Roadster Tipped For 2018 Launch
Tweet TweetHonda released an official promo video for the NSX Concept-GT, a racing model scheduled to race starting next year in the Super GT Series. Powered is offered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit alongside an electric motor. The engine is mid-mounted and promises to provide decent performance figures, even though we have no official details in this regard. At the exterior, the Japanese model which is based on the Acura NSX Concept, comes with large front and rear bumpers, side skirts and a rear wing. Side vents are also offered alongside new alloy wheels fitted with Bridgestone Potenza tires. At the interior, the new Honda NSX Concept-GT benefits from racing seats, a roll cage for improved safety and a sports steering wheel. With this been said, be sure to check the official video above for a closer look at the new racing model. … [Read more...] about Honda NSX Concept-GT debuts on video
Tweet TweetThe 2015 Honda NSX seen here in the picture, has burst into flames while undergoing some tests on the track at Nurburgring. We are talking of course of a test mule that has been totally destroyed on the Ring, which might be another clear case of “spontaneous combustion”. If we take a close look, we can state that the fire perhaps started in the fire compartment, quickly moving to the entire body, ending thus in fire in just a matter of seconds. Luckily, no one was injured, as those being in the cabin succeeded to get out of the firing test mule in an instant, but we can`t say the same think about the car. To be a reminder, the 2015 Honda NSX will be powered by a 3.7-liter V6 unit, developing 600 horsepower, competing thus against the McLaren 650S, the Ferrari 458 Italia, or the Lamborghini Huracan. Judging by the way the incident occurred, the Honda Japanese automaker might need to make some real adjustments to the car`s engine, before hitting the market. … [Read more...] about 2015 Honda NSX Bursts into Flames on the Ring
