AutoExpress is just as interested in the styling of the next NSX as the rest of us are, so they pressed a digital artist into action to 'chop the shots of the car running on the Nurburgring. What they've come away with isn't nearly as bad as we thought it might be on our last podcast. It still looks like a hotted-up Accord Coupe in some ways, though the lines and proportions are rather classic, and the anti-flamboyance creates a car that wouldn't look ridiculous next to an F430, except for the quad stacked exhaust tips. Of course, all the renderings really do is muddy the waters until we see the actual car, but at least if these images ring true, the NSX won't suck. It won't stand out, either, but who ever bought an Acura to stand out?

      Hmmm, very interesting design…

      What is Honda/Acura’s vision for the future? How will car companies accomplished their organization’s short-long term mission?

      Over the years, car companies like Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Toyota, Nissan, Honda/Acura and many others have produced cutting edge products for passionate drivers all around the world.

      I hope car companies will continue their special vision-passion for designing, engineering, and creating beautifully crafted vehicles well into the future.

      I believe Honda/Acura’s newly developed engines-vehicles will perform extremely well. With current gas prices at an all time high many drivers are purchasing vehicles with better fuel mileage/economy.

      Acura’s new NSX looks well balanced…(interesting body-roof lines, designers added different headlights, side mirrors etc…NSX concept.)

      (Objects in mirrors are often closer than it appears)…If Acura’s mission was to build the world’s fastest-greenest production vehicle; perhaps their newly developed 5.5-litre, 550hp/420lbs V10 iVtec engine, matched with a unique 8 speed paddle shift transmission, all wheel drive, front engine chassis setup will help their company accomplish it’s mission.

      Looking at the photo images…I think there will be a few interesting aftermarket parts for this vehicle to make it stand out-exotics supercars… (Rare color pearl paint...)

      I think many tuners will add; highly modified power adders-twin turbos, a high speed rear spoiler, under-car tray, and flared rear quarters to fit lighter/wider wheels and tires 19x12 in the back-18 x 10 in front. It would be interesting to see new electronics-technology from the interior…

      Hmmm, interesting article on Acura’s newly designed NSX-unnamed coupe.

      Is this a joke?:

      "...and sit on a modified version of the US Acura RL saloon platform."

      That's not an NSX; this is an NSX: http://www.dragtimes.com/images/11783-1991-Acura-NSX.jpg

      If Honda is going to retire the mid-engine layout, they should also retire the name.

        When did the T1000 (or Acadian?) get a GTO badge?
        • 7 Years Ago
        Absolutely agreed. Retire the badge if you intend on creating a completely different car. This is the same as Pontiac bringing back the bastardized GTO badge on their version of the Chevette back in the '70s (ok, so this goes the other direction!). They just aren't the same car at all.

        "It won't stand out, either, but who ever bought an Acura to stand out?"

        Ummm... try the people who bought the ORIGINAL NSX!!!
        • 7 Years Ago
        Yup the NSX is too much of a cult classic to change everything and keep the badge.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Sorry, brain fart there. Meant to say "Le Mans" and I missed on the dates. It was actually the late '80s. Here's a link to the car:


        Let's just say that the GTO lost any attraction for me when it moved to the "Ventura" and started competing in the "compact muscle car" category. Just... Not... The... Same...

      beautiful...in a generic way.

      my jdm option would be a gtr.

      front looks like a refreshing of the S2000 and the rear looks like crap. At 90K pounds that translates to almost $200 here; for that amount I would stretch a bit and go for an entry level Ferrari.
      • 7 Years Ago
      At $30,000 it LOOKS like a great car; at $50,000 it PERFORMS like a great car; at a selling price anywhere near the last NSX of $90,000, i'd say forget it.
      • 7 Years Ago
      How sad. The previous NSX had some low-slung, cool supercar looks. This one looks like some Prelude-Z-S2000 knockoff.
      • 7 Years Ago
      With Nissan bringing back the Skyline, Honda bringing back the NSX, I wonder if Toyota plans on bringing back the Supra . .
        • 7 Years Ago
        errr, nevermind, i guess they are

      " but who ever bought an Acura to stand out?"

      Ouch! Burn!
      • 7 Years Ago

      It won't stand out, either, but who ever bought an Acura to stand out?

      If so why the need the for the Acura brand at all? Why not just use the Honda brand?
        • 7 Years Ago
        If I am remembering correctly, the Acura brand is not used in Japan.

      I don't it will look ugly, but don't call it the NSX.
