It’ll trouble the original NSX for acceleration, but can you fit your head under the wing? James investigates to find out: is it any good?

    No such thing as a 4 door sports car, Honda made a big flop making the type R a sedan with a hatch

      @Panagiotis Zaharis corners quicker only on dry pavement. It wins no where else. Not to mention it should never look like an sti

    • Panagiotis Zaharis
      Panagiotis Zaharis Před 5 dny

      Even though the STI has AWD, the Type-R corners quicker, and is faster on a track. From a dig, the STI will be faster. So Honda must be doing something right.

    Paddy McGuinness wouldn't understand complex car terms like "rear legroom" or "boot space" so that makes this video a bit complex for new Top Gear, other than Harris's bits

      @Gojira Gaming I feel like this is meant to be a parody of CHcliprs like Doug Demuro who will put out a 20 minute review of a car during which time he will spend maybe two or three minutes actually driving the thing. That's not to say it's bad content, but sometimes it just seems like way more than necessary.
