Review of the 2017 Acura NSX: Back From The Dead!!!

On: Fri, Apr 22, 2016 at 3:45PM | By: Lou Ruggieri


2017 Acura NSX test 2

In the list of things that we as a society have collectively been waiting for to return from the dead would probably look something like this:  1) Jesus 2) Tupac 3) the NSX 4) the Cleveland Browns. No word on Jesus just yet, Tupac seems like he comes and goes every other year, the Browns might have some luck with their new quarterback, and, then again, they might not. But, that one car that has been as elusive as Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster is finally, finally, finally back from the dead.

Ferrari Could Be Forced to Revamp Strategy For Ailing Luxury Goods Line test 1-1

When Ferrari was spun off by FCA several months ago, the Italian sports car company had goals of expanding its influence into other forms of luxury goods, but sluggish progress in this arena may force Ferrari to reset its long term goals, according to a report released by Automotive News.

eBay Motors' Top 5 sales top 9.5 million dollars, including a $1M+ Mustang! USA! USA! test 1-1

You know the drill. I spend WAY too much time on eBay Motors looking for the most expensive cars sold over a given period, and I amaze you with what people will spend on cars you'll likely never see.

[Sorry, that was rude. Just book a flight to Los Angeles, camp out in the ritziest part of town, and I'm sure at least a version of one of these cars will pass by your sidewalk encampment.]


Two Beetles or not two Beetles: With this pair, only you (and maybe some Brazilians) will know

Two Beetles or not two Beetles: With this pair, only you (and maybe some Brazilians) will know test 1-1

My parent's first cars—and second (I think)—were both VW Beetles. This should come as a shock to no one, seeing as how ubiquitous the car was for decades—right up to the 1990s, it would seem, as my high school girlfriend had one right up until her father made her get a more “practical” car (a Geo Metro!).


 

Ferrari F355: The truest form of the Ferrari experience

Ferrari F355:  The truest form of the Ferrari experience test 1-1

So rarely does a car come along that actually makes a significant change in its parent company. Sure, if you believe the commercials, every single new car is some big, grandiose example of how the company is transforming and evolving into something bigger and better. But the truth is, a lot of those cars are just "filler" cars, and really don't do much except affect the bottom line. But the ones that truly make a difference are the ones we remember, especially when that company is one that doesn't create cars, it creates dreams. The F355 was not only a dream come true for teenagers and millionaires everywhere, it also helped revitalize the Prancing Horse to international automotive supremacy.

Just how far gone is TOO far for a car TWO: Flushing away $99k or shrewd entree into a major payday? The new owner lets us know! test 1-1

You're not a real automotive enthusiast until you've let a project car you had all the plans in the world for go to someone else for a song, only to find that what you sold for scrap value—if you were lucky—was something truly special.

Like WORTH A LOT special.

A rolling Moss gathers $2.6M in stones at Bonhams' all-Benz auction test 1-1

Bonhams held its appropriately named “The Mercedes-Benz Sale” at just about the best place on Earth they could have—the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany—on March 19, and it was packed with the swoopy, super-expensive 1930s models that made the brand the luxury powerhouse it is today.

Problem is, none of them sold.

Gooding & Co.'s Amelia Island auction sells seventeen of Seinfeld's finest for $22,244,500 test 1-1

I've never understood the fascination people have with Porsches, and I'm apparently not alone. Hell, the world is filled with idiots that don't even know it's pronounced poor-SHA. (And that's everywhere, every time, jerks. No exceptions.)

Jaguar F-Type SVR Leaked, Brings 575 Horsepower To F-Type Ranks test 1-1

The current generation F-Type "R" model currently holds the mantle as the most powerful F-Type avalible to buyers thanks to its 550 horsepower supercharged V8 engine as well as its slick exterior styling, however thanks to a poorly timed leak by a German importer (which was spotted by the folks at Autovisie,) that model will be surpassed by a new breed of feline that brings more power and technology to the F-Type ranks while also putting established entries from Porsche and BMW in its crosshairs.
