Jalopnik reporting that the test Type R making its way across parts of America has made it from Ohio to NYC in under 2 days!

Have you seen the prototype anywhere near you as it rides around the USA?

What kind of testing do you think they are doing? Seems strange to drive it so far unless there is some reason for that. Any ideas?

Its not testing, its advertising. Honda came away empty handed from the Detroit show, not two words spoken about them, expect for how they flubbed the NSX launch... So now they're using their lessons learned to tease the CTR... even though we're not getting it for at least 2 years (IMO)... ok so maybe they didn't learn their lesson...

advertising is what it is, no real reason to have it being 'tested' here, i'm sure they could have achieved that back in Europe.

I definitely see it being an advertising move but they must have some other reason as well. Testing of one kind or another.

I never thought about this as advertising but come to think about it...

What testing are they able to do here that they couldn't do before in Europe? oh right.. 7/11 big gulp cup holder test Lol

^^^^^^^ testing market reaction... >:) depending on how many dirty socks they count will probably determine definate yes or now. Granted internet posturing and hand jobbing has never got anything else built before so we'll see...

i browse some of the more popular automotive publications and haven't noticed them reporting about this, overall there doesn't seem to be much hype. expected more of a reaction.

Because American sites know its nothing out of the usual and the Europeans dont care because they already have their pre orders in ;)

yeah that sure connects the dots
being here and doing independent research brings up a lot which the big blogs miss out on, which makes you wonder.
:D
