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.

It wasn’t the all-too-familiar Initial D series, nor was it the almost natural association with drifting that pulled Lester Donis’s attention to his two-toned 1986 Toyota Corolla GTS. It also wasn’t a feature story or any sort of social media influence that nudged him toward the iconic hatchback. Interestingly enough, his childhood encounter with a

LOOKING BACK AT THE SUPER STREET COROLLA The new 2021 Toyota Corolla is an entry-level car that we’ve had a ton of experience with as we built a 2019 hatchback two years ago. With the help of our friends at Auto Tuned and a rendering by Jon Sibal, we transformed our little XSE into a

Putting down the first few sentences of a feature like this 1987 Honda CRX Si is a little tougher than usual. It’s not the familiar story of picking up an old, used Honda, adding wheels and a drop before giving in and going all out on a full-blown build. Furthermore, to be clear, it’s also

Rodrez: It’s the measuring stick that offers as much speculation and attempts to discredit driver achievement as it does real-world data and raw, obsessively focused attempts to chip away at the clock. The Nurburgring serves as a standard by which most automakers set their sights. It arms internet debate specialists with numbers and comparisons by
