At Least They’re Trying…

So there’s this thing going on right now in the Motor City, the Detroit Motor Show. And as expected, many cars are being debuted. And here’s one, a mid-engined AWD supercar. And would you believe, it’s a Honda!? Yeah, the company that killed off great cars like the S2000, and the *real* Civic Si (which is now a joke of a sporty compact). They also killed off the brilliant NSX, well until today. It’s back. Yes, in case you’re a bit thick, this very car is the return of the NSX.

Yes, it’s a concept. But don’t worry, it’s coming. Or so they say. We’ll see, this is Honda after all. And while this concept is a stunning looking thing, I don’t know. For me, it’s missing that certain something. I don’t know, the looks the stats, it just doesn’t wow me. Maybe my tune will change when this thing get’s closer to production, but it just doesn’t wow me in the same way other supercar debutes do. Maybe Honda was just a little to late to the party? The LF-A and GT-R sure think so.

My friend turned me on to this video, and I have to say, it’s one of the best, most well-made videos I’ve ever seen, for an amateur anyway. Epic music, epic shots, epic car, epic WIN. And it features Ayrton Senna, one of the (if not THE) greatest F1 drives of the modern era. Take a watch if you have the time, it’s great!

Check out this DC2 with a JDM front. I still to this day don’t understand why we didn’t get that front end here. Oh well, as far as cars, the rest of the world > USA.  This car was featured on Speedhawaii btw!
