The second most interesting news in the automotive industry apart from a supercar launch, is a supercar crash. It gets even more interesting when the supercar that crashed is a very rare car.
The latest incident involves a Honda NSX, which is marketed as the Acura NSX in some countries. The car crashed while a journalist from a local magazine was test driving the car in Taiwan.
The car ended up hitting a road barrier on a highway near Taipei city. The person behind the wheel is a 27 year old, identified by his surname, 'Hu'.
The 27 year old informed police that he was test driving the car with the window open, when a bee made its way into the car and stung him on his neck, which made him lose control of the car and crash.
What makes this incident really sad is that only 9 of the Honda NSX hybrid sports cars are allocated for the country, and one of them was this. The police conducted a test to see if the young journalist was under the influence of alcohol, which proved negative.
Lucklily nobody was hurt during the accident and the only damage that took place was to the car, which looks very repairable. The left front portion sustained damages, which does not look bad enough to write off the car.
The Honda NSX hybrid sports car is powered by a 3.5-litre twin turbo V6 engine, paired to three electric motors which in total produces 573bhp.
The Honda NSX has an all-wheel drive system and the hybrid engine comes mated to a 9-speed DCT gearbox. The car has a top speed of 191mph (307km/h) and can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 2.7 seconds.
