We know you've got a stack of cash just burning a hole in your pocket, and you've been eyeing a 2021 Acura NSX for a little while now - we're right there with you. Now, along with Acura's extra spicy Thermal Orange, Indy Yellow, Nouvelle Blue, Source Silver and Casino White pearl color options, you've got Long Beach Blue Pearl. These all come at the additional cost of 1,000, as compared to the standard 130R White, Curva Red and Berlina Black.

Of course, if you've got over $150K to spend on a new car, then that extra G-bar won't even leave a mark. The new eye-catching hue follows in the NSX's racetrack-themed footsteps and represents the Long Beach Grand Prix, a staple in the motorsports world that Acura currently serves as the event's annual presenting sponsor.

You're already intimately familiar with Long Beach Blue Pearl, having seen is slathered across a limited number of the first generation NSX, after it replaced Monaco Blue Pearl way back in the early-to-mid 2000s. The ultra-deep color is a natural fit for the NSX's sleek lines of yesteryear, as well as the modern take on the technologically advanced flagship.

Like all current NSX models, production is handled at the Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, Ohio. There, a much more detailed assembly takes place that includes all of the bells and whistles so that the end-user gets Acura's finest offering. The PMC also churns out a limited number of TLX, MDX and now RDX models that often carry unique appearance and material touches.

Other than the fresh color option, nothing else changes for the modern NSX, its last noted updates occurring during a 2019 refresh that included stiffer front and rear anti-sway bars and bushings, more rigid rear hub and a reworked electric power steering. Also, standard tire sizing moved up to 245/3519 front, 305/30-20 rear. It's $157,000 worth of high-tech grip and exhilaration, and though none of us will ever have the chance to own one unless it shows up on one of those Instagram raffles that end up paying the organizer twice the value of the actual prize, we can dream.

The show must go on, as they say, and so that’s exactly what organizers of the much-loved annual Tokyo Auto Salon did, taking the 3-day event that usually happens in Chiba’s Makuhari Messe convention center and translating it (metaphorically, not literally; it was still largely in Japanese) into both streaming video and 3D. Auto Salon

Super Street: Anytime we talk about a vehicle prototype, the overwhelming response, once some of the initial smoke has cleared (and people are done cursing out the manufacturer and demanding that their design team be fired immediately), centers heavily on claims that the production car will look nothing like the demo car. In some cases,

You know the name Joel Tan (@jt_built) from his wildly popular SR20DET-swapped, ‘40s-era Willy’s Jeep that mingles among the top of Super Street’s most popular feature cars of all time, and we expect his 1972 Nissan Skyline GT-R and Toyota Trueno of the same birth year will also have a lasting impression. Both cars feature

The “most powerful 3-cylinder in the world,” applied to Toyota’s much talked about GR Yaris still sounds a little strange when you hear it, but you can’t deny the nasty 250+hp and over 260 lb-ft. of torque that are delivered through an eager AWD system, all packed into a relatively lightweight (by modern hatchback standards)

As if to pour a little salt into the wound that the hottest hatch in ages, the AWD Toyota GR Yaris, is not being brought to North America, the interwebs has begun to conspire against us by teasing us with modified versions from some of the biggest tuners in the biz. In December, those sneak
