Vehicle maker Honda and a team of talented artists pay tribute to the creativity and effort that goes into the production of modern motion pictures, peeling back the layers of the visual effects onion, and reminding us how little of what we see on screen these days is real.
Good Bad News everyone! The production version of the new Civic Type-R is almost exactly the same as its prototype. It’s still front-wheel drive, it still looks over-the-top, and it’s still coming to the US. Its 2L turbocharged VTEC produces up to 306hp and 295lb.ft. of torque.
Honda’s one-off Riding Assist motorcycle uses an advanced steering actuator to keep itself balanced at rest or at low speeds. Its front wheel and fork can also be adjusted to provide greater balance. As a bonus, it can move on its own and follow a subject.
The badass big brother to Honda’s hot new hatch looks incredible, with beefy aero bits, a brushed aluminum wrap, carbon fiber skirts, 20″ piano black rims, and a 2.0-liter turbo-4 rumored to push out around 340 horses. The best part? This Type-R is coming to America.
Carfection checks out the new NSX to see if it’s still a daily driver supercar. The answer is a confident “yes,” with the car’s cutting edge tech working so well you barely notice they’re there, and you’re left with a familiar, comfortable and fun driving experience.
Motorelic overhauled Honda’s failed street bike into its ideal form. They lowered its front forks, added a rear hoop then worked their metalworking magic with the front plate, seat and exhaust. Homeward Bound’s racing paint job completed the rebirth. More here.
