Honda NSX Super GT

We still aren’t convinced that the new Acura NSX will ever arrive in the US. After years of “concepts” and previews, it all seems like an elaborate tease put on by Honda to mess with journalists and auto enthusiasts. We’re so looking forward to being wrong…

What isn’t a joke, though, is the NSX Concept-GT, a wildly awesome racer that runs in Japan’s extreme Super GT series. As a sort of welcome to the weekend, Honda has some footage of the NSX racer at Japan’s Suzuka Circuit. We’re really digging the NSX’s aesthetic when driven in anger, and the noise it makes isn’t too bad, either.

Scroll down and have a look at the video, and let us know what you think of this NSX racer.

The Winners Of 10 Automotive Awards Someone Should Have Handed Out

Automotive awards are so damn boring. I can’t remember which car company won the WAPOW or the NECTARINE, and which one had the magazine ad with the trophy in it. I’m too busy with my ADD and this copy of Entertainment Weekly.

Official: Fire up your 3D printer! Honda releases data for several of its past concepts [w/video]

Honda 3D Printer

Futurists have been treating 3D printing like it is the second coming of the Industrial Revolution for years. Everyone will have a 3D printer in their garage and be able make practically anything at home before you know it, right? Well… not quite.

While we can imagine a piece of trim breaking on our car and being able to download the file to print a new one at home, the reality is that 3D printing is still in its earliest stages as a consumer device. Still, Honda is capitalizing on the technology by allowing people to make models of its concept cars at home.

The Honda 3D Design Archive currently consists of five models based on the Fuya-Jo, FSR, Kiwami, Puyo, and NSX concepts. The printer files can be downloaded from the web and carry Creative Commons 4.0 licenses, which allow them to be freely shared. Honda promises that more files will be added to the archive soon.

Honda’s 3D Design Archive may be providing little more than toys at present, but it shows exciting promise for the future. Scroll down to watch a time-lapse video of Honda printing its Puyo concept.

Report: Honda already working on NSX roadster

Honda NSX Concept

Honda doesn’t do many convertibles. There was the original Sports 360, the Civic del Sol, the S2000 and the Beat. But so far, that’s pretty much it. The previous NSX was offered with a targa-style top, but the latest reports indicate that the Japanese automaker is already working on a proper convertible version of the new NSX, to be sold once again as an Acura in North America and a Honda in other markets.

Although it’s not yet known whether the NSX roadster will offer a hard or soft top, sources indicate that it won’t be a mere removable roof panel. Whatever form it does take, however, expect it to arrive a good couple of years after the tin-top version launches in 2015 with a similar form to the concept but with different underpinnings and a radical interior.

2015 Acura NSX Gets Two Turbos To Go With Its Three Electric Motors

The painfully slow rollout of the 2015 Acura NSX continues as Honda spilled some more details about what’s actually going to power the car when it eventually goes on sale. Hint: it’s turbocharged.

Video: NSX Concept-GT is the world’s hottest way to boil water

Honda uses NSX Concept GT to boil water in latest commercial.

The Honda NSX Concept-GT is one sexy machine, and it looks to be a very effective tool on a race circuit. But Honda’s latest web spot leads us to believe that it also can be used to make tea.

In the video, the racecar is hooked up to an apparatus that uses tubing to harness the energy from the car’s 500-horsepower hybrid drive system, using it to boil water. The novel tea-making technique reminds us a bit of a couple other inventive Honda commercials, namely Hands and Cog.

Watch the NSX ad below, and be sure to turn the sound up to hear that glorious engine note.
