Default Under The Skin Of The All New NSX

Quote:
Check out the nuts and bolts of what will make the replacement for the Honda NSX special!

Set to reach showrooms late next year, the new supercar will be as technologically advanced as the Nissan GT-R. It will target big-name rivals such as the Ferrari F430, Aston Martin V8 Vantage and Porsche 911 GT3.

Where its predecessor had a mere 280bhp from its 3.0-litre V6 engine, the new model features a 5.5-litre V10 delivering 560bhp. This increased power is transferred via a six-speed semi-auto box, with steering wheel-mounted paddleshifters.
As a result, the car should cover 0-60mph in less than four seconds and hit a near-200mph top speed.

Honda’s Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system promises amazing grip, while huge brakes complete the package. Inside is a luxury two-seater cabin, with soft leather throughout. A price of around £100,000 is likely.

Whoever did those renderings needs to go back to school to learn horizons and angles. Both the right front and right rear end are skewed. Car's ugly anyways.

+1. if you were going to photoshop a car...and try to pass it off like you have some skills, at least make the chop look good. this thing looks like a butchered concept car from the 90's gone horribly, horribly wrong.

It needs to be a mid engine design to be a NSX. That much of a radical change in design constitutes a completely different car. That's just how I feel about it.

I feel the same. There's a reason why the NSX was one of the most enduring and unchanged designs from Japan (the oldest models still look great today IMO... if they'd brought the NSX-R here, I might've sold some limbs to get one). Those amateurish renderings represent everything wrong with Honda/Acura's visual direction. Tell me those aren't from the official drawing boards...

I agree with the mid engine design but I think it looks pretty nice. Kinda reminds me of an R8 and for some reason a dodge challenger from the back. No contest though the older model design is much nicer.

C'mon guys. This is from Auto Express.

Honda had nothing to do with this. I'm only surprised they don't have the bat boy driving Oprah around in it.

I think it's a good looking car, but it's no NSX.
first and foremost the engine is in the wrong place.

I rather wait for another model than this. They should call this the ASX instead.

So, is this any better?

Its an actual Honda design, rather than some Auto Express photoshop mashup.



It's Honda's latest Fuel Cell concept car, shown at the LA show today.
