Those looking to see the 2015 Acura TLX GT make its late season debut at the Pirelli World Challenge this weekend will be disappointed to hear they will have to wait a bit longer:
“Unfortunately, our program suffered a serious setback yesterday afternoon during final testing which immediately ended our chances of making our debut in Detroit as promised.
Everyone involved in this exciting project feels just terrible right now. We were so looking forward to competing for the first time against all of the incredible Pirelli World Challenge GT teams this weekend.
We also feel bad for letting down our fans. Please accept our apologies and understand we will get this TLX GT tuned up and we will be on track just as soon as we can!” - RealTimeRacing

Whether it wears an Acura or a Honda badge, the admiration and passion for the NSX is worldwide. While the number of NSX owners may not be as strong on the European side, the love for this machine is still definitely present.
NSX Club Europe recently brought together 33 NSXs from all over the continent, and that’s a huge turnout from their perspective. But this was not your typical meet up, this was a carefully planned three day tour that took them to three countries, two legendary race tracks and the Autobahn.
Here’s how it went down:
“The route we set out would take us to Spa-Francorchamps, where the Spa Classic was held An event where all kind of race cars from bygone times would meet and go head to head again. From there we would drive to our hotel in Luxemburg. On Saturday a navigated drive to the Nurburgring was planned. On the (in)famous track, a VLN race was held. On the agenda for Sunday where long Autobahn straights, directly to Europe’s biggest Honda gathering, HondaFest. With these ingredients on the table, NSX owners from all over Europe started to subscribe. 10 from The Netherlands, 9 from the United Kingdom, 4 from Norway, 2 from Austria, France and Luxemburg, and one from Belgium, Croatia and Switzerland. And we were honored to welcome five special guests from Japan, of which the President of the NSX Club of Japan, Hirofumi Tomiyoshi.” - NSX Club Europe

Rapper/Actor Ludacris appeared on The Ellen Show yesterday where he spoke about the 1993 Acura Legend he has owned from before his commercial success.
“I used to write music in this Acura and I still do till this day so it’s just one of those things I can never get rid of. I will never get rid of, ever.” Ludacris
Last year Ludacris tweeted a photo of his Acura Legend and private jet which was displayed during the conversation. He told Ellen the Legend now has over 250,000 miles on it, adding approximately 10,000 more miles since his Chelsea Lately interview last year in May.
Watch Ludacris talk with Ellen about the Acura Legend in the clip below, from 1:40 to 2:25.
