2010 Acura NSX Is Real After All

Even though we thought the Acura Advanced Sports Car Concept from the 2007 Detroit Auto Show was a bit of a stinker when it came to telegraphing the 2010 Acura NSX, it looks like the shape has finally evolved into the real deal. That’s right, here is the first look we’ve gotten at the front-engined successor to the mid-engined supercar.

Clad in heavy camo, the scion of the NSX is rumored to be sporting a V10 under that long bonnet, and we wouldn’t be surprised to hear of some magical transmission trickery either. We also wouldn’t be surprised if they pulled a fast one and released it as a 2009 model, considering how far along this one seems. But all of this has us a bit. confused.

The original NSX was considered the everyday supercar — something you could live with, service, and easily get parts for. Hell, half the engine was straight out of a Honda Accord. With a fancy new engine, and most likely all kinds of crazy tech gizmos, will the new NSX just be an also-ran in a wide field of $100k+ sporting coupes? Guess we’ll find out.

But we don’t want to be Negative Nancys this early in the morning — so yay new NSX! Check out the stacked quad tailpipes, fancy aluminum suspension and shiny LED tail lamps. But let’s see what the KGP spy shooters have to say about it:

Rumors of design dissent have plagued the new NSX program since Acura’s

Advanced Sports Car Concept debuted to a lukewarm reception at

Detroit’s North American International Auto Show in January 2007. The

resulting uncertainty reportedly delayed the introduction of the

production NSX at last fall’s Tokyo Motor Show, while Acura decided on

a true design direction for the supercar. Now that things have

It appears that the general layout of Acura’s Advanced Sports Car

Concept has survived, but changes have been made to increase the level

of aggresion for the NSX. The prototype’s nose shows marked changes

over the concept, with two large, wide-set intakes flanking an even

larger central grille. The result is a less pretty, but more

The general shape of the NSX’s profile looks very similar to the

concept, although a taller, more production-feasible greenhouse

appears to be in play on the test vehicle. The side sculpting has

also been reworked with the prototype’s convex rocker panels jutting

outward, instead of the concept’s lower rockers, which tucked

gracefully under the car. Once again, the end result is a more

muscled look for the production model.

The production NSX retains the concept’s dual stacked exhaust set-up,

but rest of the rear bumper is completely different, with reconfigured
