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.

Rumor: North American Acura NSX Launching in 2015, Europe to Follow

Posted by   on October 7th, 2014 No comments

Next Evolution Acura NSX Concept

UK website What Car? is reporting the next generation NSX is still on track for a 2015 launch, at least for North America. What Car? states the NSX will initially go on sale in North America next year in 2015, while Europe will see a delayed launch in early 2016.

What Car? also mentions the production NSX will be revealed at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show in November, but this could be a reference to a Honda badged NSX for the Japanese and European markets. There have been rumors that we could see a production Acura NSX as early as January 2014 for a debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Flashback Friday: Perfecting the NSX

Posted by   on August 1st, 2014 No comments

Ayrton Senna NSX Prototype

If you consider the HP-X (Honda Pininfarina Xperimental) concept car in 1984 as the starting point of the NSX, it took Honda 6 years to turn their vision into reality. Perfection takes time, but it were those long years of development, testing, and even failures that would help to define the NSX as an engineering icon.

In this video flashback from the late ’80s, legendary Formula One World Champion Ayrton Senna takes an NSX prototype around Suzuka Circuit for testing. His direct input and collaboration with Honda engineers would eventually help to fine-tune the NSX’s driving characteristics to perfection.
