Detroit 2013 – The Acura NSX, now with more interior! (kind of)

acura nsx

This one is for Muthalovin’… It’s the Acura NSX concept, and we’ve all seen it over and over. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though, because it looks rather badass. Still, we want to learn more about what the production version will ultimately look like, and we’ve come one step closer. How? There’s an interior with this one… click past the break for pics (s0rt of).

That’s it. That’s as close as I could get. It was on a pedestal, not rotating, and there were people standing in front of me.

I tried folks, I really tried.

    Uh-oh. It's… growing on me.
    Can we just not call it NSX?

    I predict a global shortage of edges, angles and points over the coming years, now that Honda is using them all up.

      The 2014 Corvette is using them twice as fast! (And half as well…)

    Hybrid will = fail. PLEASE Acura just make a worthy, light, awesome NSX and skip the billion pounds of batteries and motors and all that crap.

      I can only thumbs this up once?!

    I don't know if it's just the lighting or if those side vents have gotten deeper, but I'm liking the shape more and more. It already looked sort of like an Audi R8, now it's like an R8, only better.

    And yet, I'd say it still isn't sharp enough.

    Honda canceled the NSX, and all their stuff started to suck. Then they revived the NSX, and now their stuff is starting to get better again.
    I don't believe this is a coincidence!

    Thanks Jeff! Good thing you are a solid foot taller than most other auto-journos.

    Wait… It's.. It's missing a pedal.
    /goes and looks at Wikipedia.
    Damnit. Another 7 speed dual clutch.
    Well. It's pretty. Except for the center console, which is way too high (and missing something).

    I don't get all the performance hybrid hate. Porsche 918 is faster than all get out, Porsche GT3 with KERS system is winning, Audi's doing it with diesels and winning. The shit works and it could be better for the environment. How is this a bad thing?

    1. danleym Avatar

      Well, I think part of the problem, as with all hybrids, is that the "could be better for the environment" is more often referred to as "definitely is better for the environment" and accompanied with a lot of smugness. Plus, we're already talking about a 6 figure car. How many of them are out there? So if it is actually better for the environment, there is a limit to the benefits with a car that will sell a few thousand vs a car that will sell a few hundred thousand. And there's a lot of complexity that comes with those limited benefits.
      For me, it's more about splitting the direction of the vehicle. Is it a fuel efficient hybrid, or is an all out performance vehicle? When you put both parts together, you're going to have to draw a line somewhere inbetween them. Yes, Porsche has made a few very fast hybrids. Is that the place Honda is aiming for- fast as hell with only the electronic/hybrid stuff that will make it faster, or are they going to give a little on the performance so that they can tout it as "green?"
      There's also a question of if they will be able to pull it off well, which is a lot more of a question with a hybrid than with a typical set up. Some companies have done it, but it's still unproven en masse.

        The other problem is Honda has the big Hybrid Sports Car Let-Down on their books. The CR-Z got some pretty mixed reviews. OTOH, maybe they learned something from that one and this will be better. (Then again, Honda stuck a standard transmission in the CR-Z as standard. Yes. I'm still grousing about the DCT.)

          That car is a blast to drive in anger…

            But would you take it over an FR-S?

        2. Vairship Avatar

          There's not much wrong with the CR-Z, other than it should have been called an Insight. It is much more like the gen 1 Insight than the CR-X

          1. jeepjeff Avatar

            Apropos of the 3-series vs 4-series Hooniverse asks today, you're right. The only thing that truly bugs me about the CR-Z is the attempt to cash in on the CR-X legacy. I don't think it lives up to that, but at the same time, I otherwise like the CR-Z. If they'd made it the new Insight, I wouldn't be attempting to compare it to the FR-S.

        Because no car maker has ever had technology to trickle down from a halo car…
        and anything that burns less fuel while maintaining its objective (going fast) is better for the environment.

      I feel the same way

    Ummmmm…….Is there any chance, any chance at all……that we can have cars that look like a human being designed them? This is just some algorithm's wet dream.

    It looks more NXS than NSX. But I kind of like it, just don't believe that it's styling has all that much to do with its engineering. Now if they could unmatte the paint, unwrinkle the rims, and dial back the dark and high contrast interior a smudge, I might get to appreciate it. It's only going to cost as much as a couple or three Integras, right?
