When I think of who makes the most ugly cars in present day (and the last decade really), Acura instantly springs to mind. So that would dampen any enthusiasm for myself personally

I think it looks pretty sharp.
Its a lot less bland than the bland mobiles they're pumping out lately.

Its got a bit of a Lexus IS silhouette to it....

But that rear end reminds me of a Buick....

The concept isn't tooooo bad but they will bland it up for production. If it ever hits production. Just a prettied up Honda anyway.

Wait until the design team get's through with it. It will show it's Honda heritage.

And that has been Acura's problem its entire existence, they're just prettier Hondas. Get in them, and they feel like nicer upscale Hondas.

Get in a Lexus and Infiniti and they feel like a step up from Toyota and Nissan (respectively), Lexus moreso than Infiniti.

I am still waiting to see what the new(ish) Genesis brand will do for a coupe. Yes they are just upscale Hyundai's but Hyundai has come a long way in a short time and the Genesis branded cars are easily starting to compete with the other upscale brands.
