2016 Acura NSX Prototype Nürburgring

It seems the 2016 Acura/Honda NSX Prototype has returned to the Green Hell for more testing in a video posted today. The vehicle’s plate numbers and a few other minor differences suggest this is indeed separate footage from the batch that was previously posted in July.

Recent reports state that the second generation Acura NSX is on track for a 2015 launch in North America.

2016 Acura ILX

Last month we posted a link to an gallery that had three images of a partially camouflaged 2016 Acura ILX. A few more higher resolution photos of that same vehicle have now emerged on showing even more detail. Again, there are exterior changes all around with the Jewel Eye Headlights and new grille design being some key points.

Acura promises to deliver “a new powertrain, more forceful, sporty exterior styling, and substantially upgraded interior design” for the 2016 model year.See the rest of the spy photos on – 2016 Acura ILX Spotted Playing in the Sun.

NSXPO 2014

The fifth and final day of NSXPO 2014 brought the crew to the Honda R&D Ohio Center where some group shots took place in the parking lot. Inside they were treated with an up-close look at the blue NSX Prototype that debuted last year at the Honda Indy 200. Photos of the NSX Prototype were apparently prohibited, but photographer Tony DeJoie was allowed to take the one group shot seen above.

NSX owners then assembled on the banked oval of the Transportation Research Center track for an epic photo shoot. According to Tony there were a total of 71 NSXs on the track, minus one lonely NSX which stayed in the parking lot short on gas.

Credit to Tony DeJoie for sharing these photos from the event. If you’re looking to view high quality versions of these photos, visit Tony’s full gallery on SmugMug.

2016 Acura ILX

Official release from Acura Media Newsroom:

Catch the Debut of the 2016 Acura ILX at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show

10/20/2014 – TORRANCE, Calif.

Big Changes in Store for Acura’s Sport Sedan

Acura is preparing to unveil a substantially new 2016 ILX at the L.A. Auto Show next month as the brand aims to raise the stakes again in the entry-premium sedan segment. Already bringing in more buyers under the age of 35 to the segment than any other entry-premium model, the new 2016 ILX stands to solidify and broaden its appeal with a comprehensive update that includes a potent new powertrain, more forceful, sporty exterior styling, and substantially upgraded interior design.

Much like its hot new stable mate—the brand new TLX—the 2016 ILX will bring a sharper performance focus while delivering a greater set of high-value comfort, convenience and safety features that consumers desire in the increasingly competitive entry-luxury field.

Catch the unveiling of the ILX on Thursday, November 20, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. in the Acura booth at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

2013 Acura ILX 2.4: 100,000 Miles Achieved

Posted by  on October 17th, 2014 No comments

2013 Acura ILX

When Acura’s John Watts handed me the key to my 2013 Acura ILX 6-speed on June 12, 2012, I don’t think he realized just how quickly I was going to put that car through its paces. By the time it was a year old, its mileage had already taken it out of warranty. And now, some 28 months after driving off into the sunset with a factory-fresh 16-mile ILX, it’s surpassed the 100,000 mile mark. And it’s done so with flying colors – just routine maintenance and an occasional wash.

Will I take this ILX as far as my now-531,000 mile 1994 Legend? I’m still not sure. But, I’ll confirm with a certainty that Acura has definitely still “got it.” The ILX is as solid today as ever, and it seems anxious every day to start up and to continue this mileage crusade. Thanks again to Acura for the chance to spend some time behind the wheel.

See you at the next checkpoint.

Head over to Drive to Five Legendary Quest for 500,000 Miles (And Beyond) for more on the 100,000 milestone.
