We gave the Acura NSX a nose-job

The first 2017 Acura NSX hasn't even made it into an owner's garage, but is the supercar already due a facelift? That's the question we couldn't help but ask ourselves after seeing the Acura MDX break cover today at the North American International Auto Show, complete with the company's brand new - and far more charming - nose.

Acura is taking this NSX GT3 racing

When you go to the effort of crafting a whole new supercar, it seems frankly wasteful not to take it racing, and it seems Acura feels the same way. The company has taken the wraps off of its new NSX GT3 racecar today, bringing the custom variant to the New York International Auto Show ahead of its planned debut on the track sometime in 2017.

2017 Acura MDX borrows NSX’s slick Sport Hybrid SH-AWD

Acura's luxury SUV, the MDX, has had a nose job, with the 2017 MDX showing off its new look at the New York International Auto Show 2016 today. The polish also includes some work under the hood, with a new hybrid powertrain that, so Acura is predicting, will add 7mpg to the 2017 MDX's economy figures.

Acura’s US NSX plant treats supercar like a chicken

Acura’s US NSX plant treats supercar like a chicken

How many American-made supercars are actually made in America? The number might be smaller than you think, with Acura claiming the 2017 NSX is the only such vehicle to be designed, developed, and produced on US soil. Deliveries of the car itself won't begin until later in the year, but trial production of what's practically a hand-built, boutique exercise is already underway.

The big tech behind the 2017 Acura NSX specs

Never has there been a supercar as relentlessly cutting-edge, as deliberately modern, as the 2017 Acura NSX. Picking up the torch passed on from the original NSX of the 90s means more than just a nameplate and that legendary Honda reliability: it's also about embracing the very latest in powertrain, handling, and hybridization. Complicated stuff: here's what you need to know for your next geeky dinner party.

2017 Acura NSX First Drive

Patience is a virtue when you're waiting for the next must-have supercar, but the 2017 Acura NSX has demanded more faith than most. Daring to reboot an icon - and that's certainly what the original NSX was - not only puts you squarely in the crosshairs of its most ardent, vocal fans, but levels big questions from the outset. Will the new NSX be the supercar-for-the-everyman-driver like its daddy was? Can it be both a brand beacon and a legitimate future-classic in its own right?

You don't need to be a sports fan to know that the 2016 Super Bowl commercials are A Very Big Deal, and Acura is kicking things off early. Unsurprisingly, it's the company's flagship NSX, the upcoming hybrid supercar, which is star of the thirty second spot, with a particular focus on how it sounds.

Acura Precision Concept revealed to give luxe rebirth

Acura is looking to get back to its "Precision Crafted Performance" roots with the new Precision Concept, a striking sedan revealed at the NAIAS 2016. Aiming to influence tomorrow's Acura sedans - and give them a needed aggressive and distinctive boost - the bright red four-door with its B-pillarless suicide doors is no mere concept, Honda's luxury division says, but a design study to revamp the brand on its 30th anniversary.

Acura previews more aggressive design with Precision Concept

Acura may be caught up in 2017 NSX excitement right now, but that doesn't mean it hasn't been thinking about what to do with its more mainstream sedans. Honda's luxury arm isn't quite ready to show us the replacements to the TLX and ILX yet, but it is promising a hint of what we might expect with a concept car pencilled in for the North American International Auto Show in January.

When it comes to hotly-anticipated supercars, the 2017 Acura NSX might be top of the list, but the lingering question - answered today - is how much it will cost. Acura has finally spilled the beans on pricing for the striking hybrid coupe, confirming that preorders will kick off early in 2016.

First iPhone hacker built a self-driving car with Linux

First iPhone hacker built a self-driving car with Linux

Wait, what? You might be asking yourself what inspired a hacker by the name of George Hotz to build his own self-driving car. That's what we wanted to know, too. It would seem that Hotz decided to kick out a self-driving car using a 2016 Acura ILX in "about a month." He's using Ubuntu Linux as his operating system and has an absurdly massive 21.5-inch display sitting in the middle. A flight navigator joystick rests between the front two seats which, when triggered, engages a fully operational self-driving vehicle system.

2017 Acura NSX First Drive Preview

We've been waiting for the new 2017 Acura NSX so long, I was starting to worry I'd find it passé even before I drove it. It's been three years since Acura first showed off the NSX Concept, and only a little less than that since their abrupt about-face on the powertrain that turned what was shaping up to be a relatively mainstream sports car - albeit with an iconized nameplate - into a complex hybrid.
