It’s probably fair to say that the public reaction to the new Honda NSX supercar – due in early 2014 – has been mixed at best, especially when you put the first-gen. NSX into the mix; a car that car-lovers just adore. Some say the new car is too generic supercar, with a lot of Audi R8 in it, and too many angles and shapes that could have come from anything automotive, fast and recent. Well, sure, taste is a personal thing as always, and if I had to choose one, I’d take the first NSX home all day long. I’ve popped a white, 1st gen. NSX-R in the pics below just to remind you want a jet-fighter-like stunner she was.
If you’re not sure just how loud 130db is, watch this video of the new Honda Mean Mower. This 1,000cc, V-twin motorcycle engine-powered, custom lawn mower kicks out one hell of a snap, crackle and pop from its hand-built Scorpion exhaust system. There’s no way it would pass noise regulations at UK race circuits, even with British Touring Car Champion, Gordon ‘Flash’ Shedden, behind the wheel.

The nearest I’ve ever got to the excitement of an amphibious vehicle was while working with a friend as a window cleaner in London for two weeks one balmy happy summer, He drove a small Renault van which was bright yellow.
