A Must Read!
I've been doing some hard core digging in forums across the web. I came across this forum with several post by a guy called "RolledanNSX". Previously, he said that the Civic Type-R ran the Ring in under 8 minutes months before that info was public. He also knew the power output of the TLX before that was public. Lastly, he knew the displacement of the NSX (3.5L) before that was confirmed or public. He's got some sort of inside connection, and he's got some serious things to say about the NSX!
"That is still a secret because they didn't push it to the limit yet.They was taking a step by step method while testing it,going faster everyday.On the second day a Ferrari 458 Special couldn't catch it.The car showed very very little body roll and mild understeer. "
October... time trial.(aiming for less than 7:00 minutes!) "
"Whispers is the CTR is doing it in the 7:45 range and the NSX is aiming for the 918 Weissach(6:57) and beating the GT-R NISMO(7:08.68)."
"they've already beat the GTR Nismo and are aiming for 918/P1/La."
"So in terms of Ring time this puts it between 7.08 and 7.00. The 488 is a bit faster than the 458 Speciale so it's still not near Nismo level. So we know that the NSX is going to be faster than those."
NSX to beat the GTR Nismo
NSX Type-R to beat 918"
"we know its capable of lapping the Nurburgring in under 7 minutes, should we even worry about its "competition"?
"NSX's transmission will be built at the Hamamastu factory."
"Honda is using their past history of underperforming to float under the radar with their comp with the NSX.
The 650S GTR and the new 488 GTB has set the class hp rating(670ps).
Honda will have to match them with performance but the NSX will not steal buyers from those makes.So they are really comp on paper(auto press tests).
The NSX comp is the next 911(turbo and with the 918 hybrid system in top version) and the next R8(will it go hybrid or not that is the question).
In Japan,it's comp will also be the GTR(going hybrid).
That's why Honda is playing this game of hinting the NSX is going to be low on horsepower from day one but really isn't."
"160hp per liter from the twin turbo V6 would not be hard to achieve."
"3.5L X 150hp/L is 525hp
3.5L X 160hp/L is 560hp
ePower will be around 100hp(Honda rating)
So you can almost bet your house the NSX will be over 600hp but under 700hp."
"The Horsepower baseline is now known for the NSX.
488 GTB 670ps
Honda will not get in a horsepower war and what that means is Honda will not go over 670ps with the NSX.
So expect around 650ps for the NSX."
"The horsepower base and top is now set for the class of sports cars that will compete with the NSX.
Base is the Audi R8 at 610bhp.
Top is the Ferrari 488 at 661bhp and the Mclaren 650S LT at 666bhp.
So the NSX will come in between those numbers,not less and not more for the standard NSX.
All we are waiting for now is the numbers for the next 911 Turbo Hybrid
(rumor is around 700bhp).
Honda will most likely be closer to the top numbers because it's going to weigh more."
"NSX will be 1600kg-1700kg curb weight
NSX Type-R around 1500kg(more carbon fiber parts)
NSX Type-R 3.5L V6 Turbo will make about 600hp + 150hp
Expect it in 2017
price $230,000-$250,000 USD"
Is anyone else excited yet?
This article is in russian, but it confirms that Honda is going for lap records with the new NSX: http://www.kolesa.ru/news/sportkar-acura-nsx-sobiraetsja-postavit-rekord-kruga-na-njurburgringe-2015-03-27
"In my inner circle, painting was seen as more of a hobby than a profession. They started to take me seriously much later when I started to exhibit my work. If I had not decided to go live in Paris with my husband and daughters, I think I would never have become a painter. Too many family and social pressures in a country I love but one which becomes increasingly conservative, rendering it impossible to grow artistically within the absurd and alienating confines of duty and obligation imposed upon women.
Only after living in Paris and painting for over twenty years have I finally accepted that painting has become my job. I have painted privately for years while raising my three daughters before finally showing my work."
Humbling and inspiring. :)

Like a pearl, a white dwarf star shines best after being freed from its shell. In this analogy, however, the Sun would be a mollusk and its discarded hull would shine prettiest of all! In the above shell of gas and dust, the planetary nebula designated NGC 2440, contains one of the hottest white dwarf stars known. The glowing stellar pearl can be seen as the bright dot near the image center. The portion of NGC 2440 shown spans about one light year. The center of our Sun will eventually become a white dwarf, but not for another five billion years. The above false color image was captured by the Hubble Space Telescope in 1995. NGC 2440 lies about 4,000 light years distant toward the southern constellation Puppis.
