Honda Just Vowed to Replace the NSX With Something Even Better
Honda has finally spilled the beans and laid out its electrification plans for the rest of this decade. Its plans are quite robust and even a little bold, with the goal of producing two million EVs annually on a global scale by 2023, introducing new solid-state battery technology, and – believe it or not – launching not one but two all-electric sports car flagships, one of which will be a successor to the NSX.
These Are The Cars With Most Horsepower Per Dollar in 2022
Despite the ongoing chip crisis, there are some fantastic choices of new cars (if you can get your hands on one, that is) out there, and James from Donut Media gives us a run down the rides that offer the most ‘HRSPRS’ i.e horsepower for your dollar.
His end goal? To find out which new car offers the most value, when it comes to the number of ponies on tap.
The Coolest Cars in the World
If you are in the market for a car, you will be surprised at the number of offerings you get in every single segment. Right from your Nissan Versa to a Ferrari F8 Tributo; there is competition in every segment. Whether you’re into classic cars, imported models or luxury items, you will be spoilt for choices. But, not every car you see is a cool one. There are a number of factors in determining whether a car is cool or not. There’s the exterior, the interior, the performance, and most importantly, it’s every individual’s opinion. You may or may not agree with some of the entries here, but here’s a look at the coolest cars of 2021.
The F1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix made the rest of the 2021 season seem dull.
This Ridiculously Quick Radio Control Car Defeated An F1 Car And A Honda NSX In A Quarter-mile Race!!
The ‘Carwow’ team brought three extremely different cars to the drag strip to take on each other. The first one was a Honda NSX, the next one an F1 car, and the unlikeliest rival of them all, a radio control car! From what we’ve seen before, you can never rule out an RC car; and the same was proved yet again. The Arrma RC car exceeded all expectations and smashed not just the NSX, but also the F1 car. How about that!
A tuned Honda Civic Type R takes on a Dodge Challenger Widebody Scat Pack
A highly tuned Civic Type R takes on the mighty Challenger Scat Pack in a couple of ¼ mile drag races. Sam, who is based in Toronto, is especially excited for the Challenger because its owner drove up all the way from Florida. The Challenger Scat Pack went up against an equally interesting Civic Type R that is anything but stock. Let’s have a look at the performance numbers, shall we?
Drag Race: 850 Hp Bentley Continental GT Pikes Peak vs 600 Hp Honda Civic Type R
The Hoonigan crew is very good at justifying seemingly pointless drag races, between two very different machines. We are very glad they do since today we have another epic stand-off between two high-horsepower machines in the “This vs That” series. “This” is a Bentley Continental GT Pikes Peak and “That” is a stock-looking, but highly modified Honda Civic Type R.
Two Reputed Japanese Sportscars Learn It The Hard Way To Never Mess With The Porsche 911 Turbo S!
The Porsche 911 Turbo S needs no introduction. It is in its elements almost always, but on the drag strip, it is nearly invincible. The folks at ’Carwow’ decided to pit the German against two Japanese sports cars – the Nissan GT-R Nismo and the Honda NSX. Knowing their credentials, it looked like they stood a chance, especially the Godzilla. But, neither of them were even in the Porsche’s league and got their asses handed to them multiple times.
This Honda Integra Type-R Rendering Is Faithful To Both The Past And The Present
The Honda Integra Type-R is not a car that needs an introduction. It’s considered the best front-wheel-drive sports car ever made. The Integra Type-R had all the right ingredients out of the box. A nimble chassis, close-ratio five-speed manual, helical LSD, and of course, the B18C5 engine that revs to almost 9,000 RPM. Sadly, prices have sky-rocketed, and if you want one, you’d have to sell an arm and a leg. However, industrial designer Jordan Rubinstein-Towler has decided to give us his own vision of what a 2022 Honda Integra Type-R could look like.
This Honda HR-X Delsol Is the Apocalytic Honda Sports Coupe You Didn’t Know You Wanted
As soon as the world caught glimpse of the first Cyberpunk screenshots and the cars included in the bug-plagued game, the internet’s pixel manipulators saw they creativity kick in. The result was a long list of eye-candy design studies that tried to forecast what sort of cars we will be driving 20, 30 years from now. Enter the HR-X Delsol.
This AWD, 650HP Honda Civic Is Downright Insane
When most people think of the Honda Civic, they think of the 1990s riced-out econoboxes with fart cans and big wings that serve no function other than to look ridiculous. Not all Civics are the same, however, as those who know what they have and know how to get the most out of them turn them into extraordinary machines, capable of easily embarrassing an exotic car with a six-figure sticker price.
This Is Probably The Cleanest Acura NSX Type R That You’ve Ever Seen
The Honda NSX Type R was all about shedding weight. It came to serve those customers that wanted even more from the beautifully-balanced NSX with better track performance and the lack of your regular creature comforts.
Honda built just 483 units of the NSX Type R and they were all offered on the Japanese market, hence the right-hand-drive layout. The example you’re about to admire went through a restoration that not only does it a lot of justice, but also makes us forget its age.
Watch How a RWD Honda Civic Drift Car Comes to Life in Just 10 Minutes
Honda Civic conversions happen more frequently than most people realize. Most of these conversions usually involve turning the front-wheel-drive compact car to either rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive, usually for reasons that involve one form of motorsport or another. These conversions aren’t difficult to do, and that probably explains why a lot of Civic conversions aren’t as well-thought-out as we’d expect them to be. They get the job done, sure, but the finished product still left a lot to be desired. Then there’s this Honda Civic conversion that comes to us by way of Jimmy Oakes of Oakes Garage. Not only was this build completely thought out, but the painstaking process and attention-to-detail is something to behold. To think this Civix started out as a beater and turned into a fully formed drift car is a testament to the work put in by Oakes and his peeps.
If You Want a New Honda Civic Coupe, You Need To Move Quick
The Honda Civic – it’s a good, reliable, efficient, and even a sporty car, but there’s one model that just isn’t meant to live beyond 2020. Honda is busy preparing to showcase the 11th-generation Civic in 2021 as a 2022 model, and now we’ve received confirmation that while the Hatchback and Sedan body styles will carry over, the coupe is officially dead in the water in the U.S. market. This will mark the first time in decades that we won’t have access to a new, two-door Civic. Times are certainly changing, but there’s some good news too.
Can the Original NSX Keep Up With a Modern Civic Type R?
As particular countries are relaxing protective measures against the coronavirus we are bound to see more car-related content flowing online, which is always a good thing to have.
Adhering to this trend is Mat Watson and carwow, who came up with a pretty interesting head-to-head between a 2005 Honda NSX and a 2017 Honda Civic Type R.
Watch a 1500-Horsepower, AWD Honda Civic (Kinda) Jolt to 60 MPH in just 1.1 Seconds
Alright. What’s the first thing that pops into mind when you hear the words Honda Civic? Nippy driving? Reliability? The Type R? A teenager’s car? Uber? Well, to us, it’s all of the above but to Norris Prayoonto and P-Racing, the Civic is proper dragster material. A downright scary one.
Video: Check Out This Honda Integra DC2 Type R Screaming Up a Hillclimb
There’s something special about a tuned Honda going flat out on a race course. The sound of the four-cylinder’s soaring rpm’s is enough to make the hair on the back of your neck stand up, and when properly sorted, the speed these machines can achieve is undeniable. Such is the case with the lightened ‘Teggy Type R featured in this 3-minute, 15-second video from Hillclimb Monsters.
The 2019 Honda Civic Is Safer and Better Looking
While the Type R may be a bit over the top with its styling, the lesser versions of the latest Honda Civic are definitely exceptional in their compact-car mission. Now, Honda has revealed the 2019 Civic with new styling features for the coupe and sedan. As an added bonus the Sport trim can now be had on the Civic Coupe.
Video of the Day: 2017 Honda Civic Type R vs 2005 Acura NSX
In one corner we’ve got the 1991 - 2005 Acura NSX; in the other corner, we’ve got the 2017 Honda Civic Type R. What do these two cars have in common other than coming from the same place and sharing common roots? Well, not much. The NSX was rear-wheel drive and rocked out less than 300 horsepower while the new Type R delivers as much as 320 ponies to the front wheels. Oh, and don’t forget that the NSX doesn’t have the same engine configuration as the Civic. Nope, it’s mounted midship compared to the more common frontal location of the Civic’s beastly little four-cylinder. Both cars are legendary in their own right.
The Civic Type R is the first one to roll off the production line and straight into U.S. Market. It’s also the most powerful production Civic Type R ever made. The NSX is, well, it’s an NSX. It was unbelievably reliable (as all Honda’s typically are) it looked amazing, and despite it’s relatively lower power output, it had world-beating performance thanks to a lightweight chassis and crazy aerodynamics. It even had a manual steering rack folks. So, what did all of that compute to? Well, it could beat the hell out of Ferrari at the time for less than $80,000. Now, the question is, can it beat today’s Civic Type R? Well, Check out this video from Carwow to see just how they stack up head-to-head!
Do New Patent Images Reveal Forthcoming Honda NSX Type R?
Recently published patent images show that Honda has a new, simplified air dam design that increases strength and rigidity, while simultaneously improving air flow as well. The patents also show what appears to be the new air dam attached to a second-generation NSX, spurring rumors that the H Badge could be cooking up a go-faster Type R iteration of its hybrid supercar.

2017 Honda Vision Gran Turismo Concept
The rumor mills we’re churning, anticipation was building, everything was falling into place. Word of Honda’s plan to build a “baby NSX” reached fever pitch when patent images, spy photos, and teasers found their way to the surface. Would it be possible for Honda to actually double-dip on the NSX nomenclature and introduce two versions of it? Well, we finally have our answer and it’s a “no.” What we do get instead is the Honda Vision Gran Turismo, a no less exciting concept that we can all enjoy… in the world of Gran Turismo Sport.
I honestly don’t know if I’m going to be thrilled or disappointed at this development. I suppose it’s a mixed bag of both, though like everyone else, I was genuinely over the moon at the thought of seeing a baby NSX hit the real world. Not only would it provide us with a new option to get our NSX fix, but as the supposed “baby” of the two, it would, in theory at least, be the far more affordable version than the current NSX that starts at $156,000. As awesome as it is, the NSX’s price tag has priced a lot of people out of buying one so the excitement surrounding a smaller and more affordable version was tantalizing. The good news is that the version that we did get - the Vision Gran Turismo - is a lot cheaper than what a baby NSX would’ve been priced. It comes free as part of Gran Turismo Sport so at worst, you’re only spending for a PlayStation 4 console and a copy of the game. That’s what, $400? Still, it would’ve been much better if all that teasing led to a baby NSX. That’s not the case this time, but there’s still hope for the future, right, Honda?
