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. Cuing on everything from a '32 Ford to shoes to the gym, she and her team of eight worked to make the 2016 NSX three-dimensional and "kickass."
Acura's long-awaited NSX is finally here, and it's longer and wider that the 2013 concept that signaled its revival. It's also got a hybrid powertrain with 550+ horsepower.
The 2015 Detroit Auto Show is set to feature a long list of powerful new cars as the industry moves beyond the Great Recession.
Developing a new vehicle is not without its complications, we're sure, but usually things follow a fairly predictable progression: you develop a prototype, you test it, test it and test it again, then you put it into production. What you don't expect is that your prototype will burn to the ground, but that's what famously happened to the NSX which Honda engineers were testing a few months ago.
