    I'm defo buying a honda again.  My honda hybrid refuses to die.  The cell is dodgy, but runs fine.
     
    Would struggle to get a bike in the back of that though

    It's a modern Honda that doesn't look like complete ****, didn't think they still had it in them.
     
    Also a mid engined sports car. That's always a winner.

    Pretty brave going for another NSX..even though the last one scalped all the super cars at the time, it wasn't exactly a selling success.

    Saw someone quote of look Honda have made an R8 which made my chuckle. Either way helluva fine car. Tool monkey whats wrong with Honda? Though I do agree if I am dropping R8 style money I wold probably want R8 style chops to go with it.

    nowt wrong w/ Honda, the original was one of the most underrated supercars of all time. can't help thinking this is too much like an R8 though - fab car itself, but Honda could have been a bit more original.

    I always remember this, although the NSX lost a couple of places at the end, in a straight race it  could hold its own..would have won if not for the cooked brakes.

    As Jeremy Clarkson said 'If you buy a Honda, you end up with a Honda'. It looks nice and probably goes like stink but would rather have something else for that money.

    Isn't that why it's branded as Acura? Or is that just in the States?

    rumors are its priced around £60,000. a so a good £35k cheaper than an R8.
     
    for that money i'd be juggling between this and a Nissan GTR

    Looks good. The electric motors apparently deliver instantaneous toque - I'd love to floor it to see this in action!

    Honda, good reliable car, had a civic in the past, nothing sporty though, just a normal one.
    NSX of old, great sports car.
    New NSX, looks great and should hopefully perform well with a high level of reliability.

    Fair enough but none of those are really supercars like the NSX.

    the very fact the comment was said by clarkson is good enough reason to treat it w/ the contempt it deserves

    Bloke I got chatting to who worked for Honda at Swindon told me that they hung up a number of VTEC engines all connected up with fluids etc etc.... and revved them at maximum revs (around 9,000 rpm), constantly for three months.  They then dismantled all the engines and checked for wear, and apparently there was hardly any.
     
    I have had an S2000 for about six years now I think... all I have done is maintain it with servicing, replaced a few tyres brake pads and the battery... the only thing ever to have gone wrong was a cheap brake line which needed replacing.  Very impressed with Honda. 
     
     
     

    I used to walk into a room full of people & wonder if they liked me..... Now I look around & wonder if I like them
