click above to high-res gallery of Acura NSX spy shots

The spy shots we showed you earlier of an Acura NSX prototype on the street were taken in Germany near the famed Nurburgring test track. Of course, any prototype driving around the 'Ring will eventually be driving on the 'Ring, and so it was today for Acura's future supercar. KGP photographers snapped the NSX prototype being driven hard around the Green Hell, so much so that the car's left-front wheel catches air at one point during hard cornering. There are many more angles and views of the next NSX in our gallery below that should allow you to see the car's form through its heavy camo paint even better.

KGP Photography:

Here are some new shots of the NSX, doing some hot laps on the 'Ring (along with another set heading back to its facility). The new shots all have their own charms, and each reveals something new, thanks to the different angles and lighting. One particularly intense track shot has the NSX raising its front wheel under hard cornering.

      It looks very similar to the Nissan 300zx.

      dosen't feel like an NSX to me
      • 6 Years Ago
      Sorry for off-topic, but the camouflage is really good. Still can get an impression of this prototype, even after having stared at picture for several minutes.

      Why are they abandoning the mid engine layout that made the original nsx so unique? this shape is dime a dozen these days-- looks like a beefed up z4, or a squashed z06.

      it reminds me of the lexus
        • 6 Years Ago
        um matt...the es350 is camry based not the is
        true that the is lacks performance but the only lexus that really has any is the is-f

        Matt

        German and English cars are good cars, fact is though they are so overrated, especially English cars (Bentley).
        wtf kind of name is flying spur? sounds like sonic the hedgehogs sidekick. and the CTS? come on now, if I'm going to spend 40k on a car I want a car that's going to last me at least 30k miles without having to goto the shop 2x a month, because we all know what american manufacturing did to the TL, TSX and the Camry.
        Basically, your ignorance is overwhelming.

        Give this person a cookie. He/she has x-ray vision and can see through heavy camo and obvious add-ons to throw off the naked eye. :)

        I wonder if the wench was able to get a video. I'd like to hear what's under that hood and hear what's going on with the transmission.

        Matt, do you understand the difference between front wheel drive and rear wheel drive? You're Big Wheel is front wheel drive.
        • 6 Years Ago
        You just another typical toyota boy toy....jus shut up till you see the production version then comment. btw fawk toyota and the founder.
        • 6 Years Ago
        yup, and i'm not caring for what we can see of that front and rear end, to narrow, to much like a slightly larger s2000, and those accord esc tails... eep.
        • 6 Years Ago
        i second that. from other angles this thing looks almost like the LF-A
        • 6 Years Ago
        No offense, but why would you want to be a fanboy of Acura OR Lexus? If I'm spending $40,000+ on a car, I'm buying a German or English car, or a CTS, not some ghetto wanna-be Camry junk.

        Have you SEEN the IS-350? That thing IS a Camry, they don't even TRY to hide it. And the Camry is gross.

        GROSS.

      no mid-engine, no nsx.

      that's all there is to it.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Exactly. This is a Jag XKR / Aston competitor.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Not again with the damn stacked exhaust!
      Well at least the NSX version doesn't look as stupid and riced-up like the Lexus IS-F.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Hmmm... The door crease, the vertical ridge line bisecting the trunk lid and back bumber... Could this possibly be a *gasp* new generation TL coupe ? ;)
      • 6 Years Ago
      It is the NSX and it is now front engine with a v 10 motor. It looks nothing like the advance concept as it received a poor reception. In my opinion it’s uglier the advance concept.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I'd be surprised if Honda call it the NSX. Its a different car, more a GT i'd say. I'm hoping Honda will give the sports car a last go before fuel prices make it extinct, but i guess we will see.
      • 6 Years Ago
      If the wind was normal...someone needs to tune that suspension
      • 6 Years Ago
      Can't believe Honda goes for FR instead of MR. The HSC Concept should have been the next NSX, not this crap.

      I should have kept my 03 NSX.........
