Automakers typically wait until their new car is actually released to roll out an online configurator interface, but Acura isn't waiting around. Instead it has launched a configurator for the upcoming NSX that's still in the concept phase.

Well, sorta. The online tool launched on Facebook in question isn't a full configurator in that it doesn't let you swap the wheels, install any options or even look into the cabin, let alone customize it. What it does let you do is view the NSX concept from one of three angles and select a color from either an array of presets or from anywhere in the RGB spectrum. We settled on the deep metallic green hue above – what color would you choose?

          This image explains it. Top is a proper looking mid engine. The others are plain bad or not mid engine looking. http://i133.photobucket.com/albums/q46/hkcrv/nsxlineage.png

          @carguy, yeah knew that one was front engine. There is also another front engine version not pictured that they raced and a purple avengers version not pictured there. Main point i was making is that Acura cannot figure out what this car is supposed to be and how it should be proportioned. They have lost complete sight of what the NSX is. As for acura styling not working on MR proportions. Acura style language is to make very upright cars, with huge gaudy front grills (covered mostly by a silver beak). and large headlights with lots of bling. This does not work well with a MR supercar. They dont need large grills (engine in the rear) especially not ones that block airflow. They need aerodynamic enhancing grills. Tall grills just look stupid. And they dont look good with giant bling headlights. Super car styling should not focus on headlights by making them huge and giving them 10 bulbs. Also the car is too damn tall and not low and wide enough as a proper MR car should be. This car in profile looks more like a futuristic Eclipse than a MR auto.

      From what I've seen Acura sales have only dipped. Its hard to believe how stubborn Acura is about retaining the beak that the public hates so much. Honestly, everything Honda/Acura does mystifies me.

          62% of Acura sales are crossover and SUV's. They have failed miserably on the warmed over Civic ( ILX) and Accord (RLX) TSX and TL are outdated and way behind the competition.

      Chrome has no place on a super car. That chrome Acura design cue its terrible, if in the crazy instance I owned this car, I would immediately black out the chrome accents.

      Acura's new jewel-eye LED headlights are sexy.

        Certain features probably will be played out by then, such as the elongated C-shaped LED taillights and the garishly huge and sharp-edged (faux?) air intakes below the headlights. I give Acura a pass to the extent those intakes are real and aerodynamically optimal. I have never had any problem with the much-maligned Acura "blade beak," which is subdued here.

      I think this car looks fabulous. And love that center console and love that binnacle display! I for one give it two thumbs up. Wheels could be a bit better though.
