2021 Acura NSX — The silent, screaming supercar



By Jim Prueter

(March 25, 2021) The Acura NSX supercar couldn’t help but turn heads and draw a crowd whenever I parked. The styling is gorgeous with an exterior design that’s enticingly worthy of praise. No crazy swoops, no melodramatic over-the-top spoilers at the rear or sculpted fins, rather styling that’s astonishingly beautiful, mostly. The snout is large and a bit on the fussy side, the rear a bit heavyset, but overall errs on mimicking the likes of the McLaren 570S in my eyes.

The new generation, as expected, launched with more power, better performance, and necessary safety and tech upgrades. Most of these upgrades are thanks to the 3 Series sedan, which was redesigned for the 2019 model year.

(March 7, 2021) It’s luxurious; and fast; and very, very good; and sounds absolutely magnificent. It also costs a lot, over $135k, about twice the price of the non-AMG E-Class five-passenger family sedan.  Armed with fire-breathing 603 twin-turbocharged horsepower from its 4.0-liter V-8 engine along with a maximum torque of 627 lb.-ft and paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive, the E63 S launches itself to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds from a standstill.

(March 1, 2021) Infiniti made a decision to up its performance game to compete with high-performance German sports sedans like the compact Mercedes AMG C43, BMW M3 and Audi S4 and S5. For the Infiniti brand, Red Sport is the name it gives to its highest performing cars including the Q50 with its 400-horsepower twin-turbo V6 tested here.

(February 20, 2021) There’s been quite a buzz about the new Mustang Mach-E, ever since it debuted at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show. Fast forward through 12 months of presidential-election fever, a global pandemic, and we finally got a week of seat time behind the wheel of Ford’s first mass-market all-electric SUV, and it bears the legendary Mustang pony badge fore and aft.

Motor Trend named Telluride its 2020 SUV of the Year. Perhaps even more prestigious, it took top honors as the 2020 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year.

(January 31, 2021) Last year, we tested the bargain-priced Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack Plus, equipped with a 485-horsepower, 6.4-liter V-8 SRT 392 Hemi, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. That Charger was overshadowed by the attention-getting headlines of its more powerful big brother, the 707-horsepower Charger Hellcat.

(January 28, 2021) Say what you will about the minivan and the stigma associated with owning and driving one, it’s undeniably the most versatile family-friendly vehicle you can buy. And, when it comes to flexibility, cargo and passenger capabilities along with ease of overall use, any three-row crossover — regardless of size — pales in comparison. And I haven’t even begun to laud plaudits regarding ease of mid- and third-row entry and exit seating.

Acura is Honda’s premium brand, and has been around since 1986. The popular MDX was first introduced for 2001, and Acura says the new model is in an entirely new class. Changes start with the exterior styling, and continue to the all-new ultra-rigid platform with an MDX-first double-wishbone front suspension, new technology, and more space for people and gear.

(January 21, 2021) With the large, expensive SUVs back en vogue, Land Rover decided that now would be a great time — after a 22-year hiatus — to bring the Land Rover Defender, one of the world’s most iconic nameplates, back to the U.S. market. It’s all-new, funky fresh, still boxy, and an off-road triumph of capability that more than lives up to its go-anywhere English heritage. And there was, indeed, a lot to live up to.
