New Acura NSX?

So I just so happen to be a super hero nerd as well as a car fanatic, long story short I was looking through new set photos of The Avengers and it looks like Tony Stark/Robert Downey Jr. may be driving the new Acura NSX? Though it's only a back shot of the car I do notice its a full strip tail light but in LEDs instead. Looks good from what I can see...another reason for me to look forward to seeing this movie now, to see the new Acura sports car, whatever it may be called.





Edit: I googled Robert Downey Jr. New Acura and found images of the front

Sorry, It's a one-off for the movie.

not a NSX, but definitely a research car for Acura. The fact that it appears to be a mid-engine sports car could be mistaken for an NSX. When Acura does release a new sports car, i hope its affordable and not another playback of Lexus LFA

Eh I don't think it'll be lfa pricing but it wont be cheap, judging by the price of Acuras it would probably fall somewhere between 90-100 grand.

Ya! thats cool...80-100 is acceptable IMO.. the older NSX retailed around that price range. But that was then and this is now, with a different market, different executives, different engineers..a lot can change in a small amount of time. I just hope they don't get their panties tied up in a wad and say, "hay lets build an awesomely rare sports car to showcase what our company is about and price it at 500k". Because its certainly possible.

Auto log said Acura won't produce this vehicle, but they also hint that a new NSX isn't dead.

looks like your TSX grille. It's certainly part of the Honda family!
