It's a great time to be an enthusiast. From high-horsepower Hellcats to the purist BRZ, engaging automobiles are found in nearly every segment of the market. Everyone wants to join the performance parade. Everyone it seemed, but Honda.

Michelle Christensen was Acura's first female exterior designer - she drew the original concept for the ZDX - and now she is the first woman to ever lead the exterior design of a supercar.

The Acura NSX sports heavily tweaked styling for its latest debut at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. With a huge number of slashes, ducts, intakes and even a flying buttress in the C-pillar, the styling doesn't so much channel the air as bend it to the designer's will. In addition, the latest version sports a longitudinally mounted, twin-turbo V6 with a three-motor hybrid setup that powers all four wheels. Unfortunately, the Japanese brand is still keeping some very important specs for now.
