It might look like an S2000 out there on the 'Ring, but something's not quite right. We've all ogled the spy pictures by now, but Inside Line has produced a nifty little video of what we all think is a development mule for the next Acura NSX. Just listen to that angry exhaust note – that ain't no 4 pot. The S2000 duds are a nice blending tactic – it doesn't draw that much attention to itself, and it gives Honda time to get it together after their body design was met with a yawn in Detroit. The grey bomber makes good use of its rumored 5.5 liter V10 and SH-AWD as it digs into corners and claws its way around the German racetrack. Unlike the original NSX, this time around, the Honda supercar platform will be front-engined, and may not be called NSX. The high points of this mule have already been covered, so click the pic and enjoy the video.

        FFS! People use your monkey brain logic and may be try to read once in a while.

        THIS IS A TEST MULE!!!! they are testing something that they don't want you to notice. Honestly, what to do you think they would do!?! Have a huge neon sign that said "ACURA TESTING 2009 NSX HERE PLEASE LOOK!"?

        are you serious? maybe if you actually read the post and looked at the car you'd realize that this is a cut up S2000 being used to test the mechanicals of the new NSX. this is NOT the body for the next NSX.

      Actually, the test mule isn't even that ugly. Sure, the design doesn't fit the NSX, but it would make a perfect RX-8 fighter.

        Are you serious? A RX8 fighter? You better mean the styling. If not, you seriously need to read and listen to the video and article. You are comparing a wankel that makes 215 on the dyno to a 5.0L V10 that makes 550. And not only that, a rwd based AWD versus a RWD. The S2000 can run laps around a RX8 much less a V10 equipped NSX.

      Looks like he's driving with a 911 Turbo for most of the video, meaning that's probably their performance target. Aiming high, Honda...

      Personally, I think that they would be better off with an $80K V8 GT rather than a $150K V10 GT...it's a lot harder to spend that kind of money on a Honda rather than an Aston or Maserati. However, this is still going to be a sweet car, can't wait to see the real thing.
