That's because the power numbers are gonna be lame.
Jake Trumbull Jan 17, 2013
It's lame that they are withholding power numbers
Harrison Trapnell Jan 16, 2013
Its been a year? Wow...
Janya Pulusu Jan 16, 2013
I can't wait till 2015
William Downs Jan 18, 2013
Dont hate on something u dont fully understand just cause u dont see it as a performance option
William Downs Jan 18, 2013
Better then electric cars and boring ass hybrids, diesel is a proven technologhy in both mpg and performance, and with current diesel technology there also better for the eviroment. Then gas and electric power trains
James Salaba Jan 17, 2013
V8 or v10 it doesn't matter! So what's next diesel f1 maybe diesel wrx! Haha!
William Downs Jan 17, 2013
Really so then why has audi dominated le mans with its diesel race car, dont be anignorent fool about something just because u dont see it as a performance options, that and im not ahige fan of v12's mhch preffer the sound of a v8 or a v10
James Salaba Jan 17, 2013
Common people you would really pick a diesel supercar over v12 petrol? Diesel is designed to do mileage like a business car or taxi not a sport car! I don't wanna offend anyone but that's just wrong!
Jesse Jalapeno Jan 17, 2013
I agree with William.. I'm a diesel fan, I think it would be awesome.. And it would sound good..
William Downs Jan 17, 2013
I agree with the hybrid part but totakky disagree with the diesel part, diesel super car will be a monster... specially with audi and there diesel racing dominance from Le mans
James Salaba Jan 17, 2013
Thanks Jacob at least one who is agree with me supercar is petrol only! Not hybrids and certainly not diesel (Audi r8)!
Jacob Burford Jan 16, 2013
Another Acura I will pass! Looks alright, but hybrid technology in a supercar is a turnoff!
William Downs Jan 16, 2013
20" inch rims look good on nothing unless it came stock in that size
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 16, 2013
@CB first of all. I dont like oversized rims. there's a difference between big rims and crazy sized rims. 20's looks right on certain cars as well as 18's. There's nothing wrong with an auto. so please just hop off my jock.
Colin Caton Jan 16, 2013
I'll take the Ford Focus ST back there
Colt Eklund Jan 16, 2013
Ugh, change the wheels back!
Phil Martini Jan 16, 2013
I work for Acura & this car is down right ugly. The Front, back, side & wheels are garbage. There is nothing original about this car. Exterior front & sides looks very similar to McLaren mp4-12c. And the interior is straight outta the aventador.
James Salaba Jan 16, 2013
Looks quiet ok but I would take the NSX from 90s over this one anytime! Cant beat the pop up lights!
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 16, 2013
@aaron, I'm not hating completely on hybrids but seriously the only reason in mad is that they put these hybrid engines in exotic supercars which raises the price crazy high, if they went with a v8-10, it would be affordable.
Victor Pitts Jan 16, 2013
Gorgeous!
Tn Ng Jan 16, 2013
Looks so sharp like a samurai
Maaz Khan Jan 16, 2013
I agree with you Justin on the grill part... Also Love the look of this NSX, so amazing
Jesse Jalapeno Jan 16, 2013
@Ron..that was my first thought too
Justin McLeod Jan 16, 2013
At first I hated the latest gen TL's beak nose, and the redesign looked better. But over time it's kinda grown on me, call me crazy but I like the original big beak nose now more than the smaller redesign. I like the Ron Jon grille most of all though
Justin McLeod Jan 16, 2013
I think the front end of this thing is GORGEOUS. I have a 07 TL-S and IMO those gen TL's & TSX's had the best looking grilles. They were simple, stylish, sleek and to the point with no nonsense. Why update something that doesn't need to be changed?
Ron Vinson Jan 16, 2013
Still looks like a R8 clone overall.
Jack Howard Jan 16, 2013
I used to hate the beak grill but they toned it way down and made it pretty nice
Aaron Sparks Jan 16, 2013
I for one think that we're about to witness the last years of the supercar and possibly the car as we know it. Cars have always excited us in the past no matter what method they use for propulsion. The future will be no different.
Aaron Sparks Jan 16, 2013
Get used to hybrids because we're all going to be driving some variation of one in the future. Besides, there's a potential for better performance with hybrids coupled with greater efficiency. Why not have your cake and eat it too?
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 16, 2013
And also why a hybrid engine why not a regular one?!? Tired of hybrids
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 16, 2013
Looks like an aggressive bird
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
I honestly don't notice the beak. I think It actually accents the car well. And it's a lot smaller than some the beaks on other acura's (but I don't mind the so called beak grill)
William Downs Jan 16, 2013
I do like the car alot but every time i look at the frontthat beak just steals my eye and kills it for me, and the back i think needs a redesign, does not match the agressive front end at all
John Serely Jan 16, 2013
William your right about the beak thing
Carlton Salmon Jan 16, 2013
@ William. Totally agree with you on the bird beak thing but it seems as though they've toned it down a little on this version. I think the last one was chrome if I recall...
William Downs Jan 16, 2013
Its nice looking but i hate thatbacura bird beak thing its got going on and the back end is less then appealing, just dosnt match the front imo
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
If this goes into production like this, I wouldn't hesitate to say it would b the best looking car on the market. This thing is so f**king sexy!
Matt Marchant Jan 16, 2013
Still hate it, I'll take the old one over this hybrid shit any day.

I wish..... I just really like the old nsx.
Phil Martini Jan 16, 2013
I wish they'd hire new designers
Thibault Leroy Jan 16, 2013
Agreed
Tyler Cook Jan 16, 2013
I wish it was at least a V-8:/
Antoine Boily Jan 17, 2013
Wheels are ugly
Mohammed Suhail Jamil Jan 17, 2013
3 LEDs either side will look descent, but 5, looks hideous!!
Ben Knorr Jan 17, 2013
front looks sexy but everything from behind the door is just tragic
Johnny Kwon Jan 16, 2013
It can be done.
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 16, 2013
@ben, driving a supercar like this in the city is a bad mistake, alot of reckless drivers out here...
Harrison Trapnell Jan 16, 2013
WOW! Look at that beautiful red van in the background! :D
Ben Randle Jan 16, 2013
@author what??
Dave Rain Jan 16, 2013
This thing is hideous
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 16, 2013
I could just imagine if you scratched this car you can't have this in the city it'll be crazy
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
Don't like the wheels, but everything else is perfect.
Ryan Haverty Jan 17, 2013
Change the wheel design!
Dave Larby Jan 16, 2013
Those wheels make me want to puke... They are circus ugly!!
Derrick McCarthy Jan 16, 2013
The wheels are hideous I say, they don't look round!
Dayan Fernandez Batista Jan 16, 2013
One car I would like to have! In my opinion, it looks like a sharper Audi R8, but still very well done as it is right now.
Chris McCormick Jan 16, 2013
From the side it almost looks like a Honda accord
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 16, 2013
Needs new rims that's all...
Maaz Khan Jan 16, 2013
Boring? HELL NO! Sexy? HELL YES!
Dylan Arms Jan 16, 2013
Yeah this car is perfect except for the wheels, but it looks like they might be functional, maybe channeling air toward the brakes? It looks like it has like fins on it
Oleg Odessit Jan 16, 2013
On the profile it looks like nothing new at all, maybe its the color and those hopeless rims
Wyatt Gordon Jan 16, 2013
What a boring profile
Dave Rain Jan 16, 2013
No no no
Mic Wong Jan 16, 2013
I want to know to reason of those weird wheels...
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 16, 2013
@aaron, I thought jay Leno had the first new nsx concept that was premiered a while back what the hell? There are 2 models?
Stephen Tyler Learn Jan 16, 2013
This car reminds me a lot of the tru 140s or whatever Chevrolet concept that came out last year. Of course the nsx is mechanically leaps and bounds ahead of the Chevy they have similar side profiles
Austin Sullivan Jan 16, 2013
Yeah, this is sexy.
Jackson Michael Jan 16, 2013
I'm with matt
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
If this isn't sexy idk what is, just saying.
Darryle Moody Jan 16, 2013
There is no drama to this. It is actually boring. Functional, probably. Sexy? Not even close.
Aaron Crisp Jan 16, 2013
It's a new model. It hasn't been in production for years.
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 16, 2013
I thought this was already out? Am I going crazy?
Andre Houtz Aug 10, 2013
I actually like it. I'll show myself out...
Ben Knorr Jan 17, 2013
uuuuuugly. I'm sorry but that just doesn't work for me.
Chris Kuyumdzhyan Jan 16, 2013
Dave's talking about the light strip the accord has on the trunk. Lolllllll c'mon, how did you guys not get that?
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 16, 2013
I wanna put neon under it just like fast and furious! Lol
Maaz Khan Jan 16, 2013
I love the back lights, just brings back the one backlight concept from th original NSX
Dylan Arms Jan 16, 2013
Sexy.
Darian Vorlick Jan 16, 2013
Definitely see styling cues from the current honda lineup. It's more that we're seeing a bit of the NSX in the Accord given that manufacturers tend to stylize their lineup with motifs from flagship concept cars it's not surprising.
Ben Norton Jan 16, 2013
I do see accord. The last nsx looked like a race car to me. This is very mild in my opinion
Jack Howard Jan 16, 2013
I seriously doubt anyways would make that connection
Jesse Jalapeno Jan 16, 2013
Not sure what Dave is trying to say..
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
I love the rear. I don't want them to change it at all. And @ Dave, uh ok?
Dave Rain Jan 16, 2013
"It's that a new accord?" "No, it's the new NSX."
William Downs Jan 16, 2013
I agree with Darryle the back when compared to the front is extremly boring, hopefully they fix that before production.. its to safe looking to be honest
Jesse Jalapeno Jan 16, 2013
His last name is moody...
Jackson Michael Jan 16, 2013
Someone is a little grumpy this morning
Darryle Moody Jan 16, 2013
The rear treatment is borderline sad looking. The diffuser is angled outwardly instead of vertically. Does not appear well conceived.
Anthony Boggs Jan 20, 2013
Almost looks like the one77
Mohammed Suhail Jamil Jan 17, 2013
Look nice from the rear. Love the lights!
Nick Bultman Jan 16, 2013
Sick

SH-AWD wins soooo hard.
Maaz Khan Jan 16, 2013
Oh interesting position for exhaust, took me a few seconds to actually locate them! Very interesting
Jon Wheel Jan 16, 2013
Just because of the shape of the tail lights? Stupid comparison
Ryan Lopez Jan 16, 2013
One mb
Ryan Lopez Jan 16, 2013
Austin Martin knee 77?
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
Love that ass.
Ben Knorr Jan 17, 2013
hmmm where have I seen this interior before...ah yes, the LFA. how lame.
Tyler Tarbox Jan 16, 2013
Neither of y'all will be banned. The only people who get banned are the ones that come along ever so often that literally everyone hates
tylergrandstaff Jan 16, 2013
wow how did I get to the drama club. the interior is flat out ugly
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
@ Patrick, what would I get banned for? Ur the one who's always being an ignorant a-hole :-)
Patrick Schalk Jan 16, 2013
Haha I'm not the king of CarBuzz but I appreciate that. I'm not gonna get banned for what I do to Matt. He will get banned before just being typical Matt.
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahaha.... Ahhhhh, Patrick, the kind of carbuzz? Lmfao omg ur killing me!!!!!
Jordan Smith Jan 16, 2013
Patrick as much of the king of Carbuzz that you are, toying with Matt like this could get you banned. And that would suck.
Jacob Murray Jan 16, 2013
I have a picture of an interior from an LFA I saw at a car show and this interior is almost identical. I looked back and forth a few times to make sure but yea it's straight out of an LFA. With that being said I can't wait to see how this thing runs!
Tyler Tarbox Jan 16, 2013
@Johnny. A lot of new Porsches have it too
Johnny Matias Jan 16, 2013
I didn't see too much of this type of center console (by my knowledge) aside from the last NSX before the Lamborghini Aventador. It's absolutely a new and futuristic looking interior. Maybe add some black on the headliner and seats but otherwise good
Patrick Schalk Jan 16, 2013
Apparently it is.
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
@ Tyler, not really. And pat, simple, I'm not. Not too complicated bud
Patrick Schalk Jan 16, 2013
Matt, how are you ever NOT ignorant?
Tyler Tarbox Jan 16, 2013
@Matt. You're very ignorant if you think this is is so much better than the Vette or Viper. If this had a Dodge, Ford, or Chevy badge on it you would say it was awful
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
@ pat how am I being ignorant?
Patrick Schalk Jan 16, 2013
I actually like this minus the red. I agree with everyone.
Alex Smith Jan 16, 2013
Waaaaaay to much red. Red seats can only look good if the rest of the upholstery is black. It looks tacky as hell. The red material in the center of the seats looks cheap and awkward. Also the red on the steering wheel needs to go. Looks like a cover
Tim Preisinger Jan 16, 2013
I think it's pretty nice. Way too much red though
Jesse Jalapeno Jan 16, 2013
84+6=90 :D
Patrick Schalk Jan 16, 2013
Yeah Matt I'm 6. What are you today? 84? Your ignorance amuses me. Please carry on.
Dylan Bruder Jan 16, 2013
Agreed with jordan on the first part I don't know the lfa well enough for the last statement
Jordan Smith Jan 16, 2013
Aye they all look good. The Corvette, the Viper, and the NSX. You can't say no to that. I do however think this looks a bit too similar to the LFA's interior.
Dylan Bruder Jan 16, 2013
Not to attack Matt today but not seeming very special or unique after how much he built it up to be not bad though
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
Wow pat, u may b the most clueless person on this app if u think that's what I meant. Like what r u, 6?
Patrick Schalk Jan 16, 2013
By Matt's logic, yes Jack.
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
God ur dumb pat lol
Jack Howard Jan 16, 2013
Patrick how so? The fact that they have seats, a wheel, and a dash?
Patrick Schalk Jan 16, 2013
Matt, this has the same layout of some cars from the 90s and early 2000s.
Lead Peddalin Jan 16, 2013
Holy Red! Tone it down a bit fellas. This is tacky.
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
Vette and viper have nothing on this interior lol
Tyler Tarbox Jan 16, 2013
I love it. Rivals the Vette and Viper interiors
Jesse Jalapeno Jan 16, 2013
@garett,agreed.. I think is a bit much red going on..
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 16, 2013
Red velvet
Garrett Chatterton Jan 16, 2013
Bad Acura bad now go back to the blueprints and think about what you've done, if you put in a 6-speed manual transmission in the car all will be forgiven
Darryle Moody Jan 16, 2013
The red leather and alcantara is fantastic. They didn't go crazy with carbon fiber, and the restraint of its use is well done. Excellent job here.
Darryle Moody Jan 16, 2013
Real nice seats there.
John Patten Jan 17, 2013
I love it, but it looks like a LFA. Not that it's a bad thing. :P
Julian Yo Jan 16, 2013
My opinion is that they just use a modern version of the first gen NSX interior and maybe is the LFA that copy them in the first place :P
Ian Ragsdale Jan 16, 2013
It's funny that Porsche originally designed this up sloping console for the CGT to raise the position of the shifter similarly to a race car...... And now it's being done on cars with no console shifter..
Maaz Khan Jan 16, 2013
Other than the overkill on the red, this looks pretty nice. I like how the pillars at the windows are small for better visibility. And the "oh crap" handle bar goes with the flow I the car look
JB Kolod Jan 16, 2013
Feels like a mix of Porsche and mp4-12c
Justin McLeod Jan 16, 2013
Uhh LFA much, is it just me or does this resemble the LFA's interior quite a bit? Not saying that's a bad thing but the center console looks very similar.
Ron Vinson Jan 16, 2013
Porsche center console design.
Geoff Novak Jan 16, 2013
I love the flow from dash to passanger door handle
John Serely Jan 16, 2013
Looks good
Darryle Moody Jan 16, 2013
Excellent work here.
Aaron Crisp Jan 16, 2013
Looks fine.
Ryan Haverty Jan 17, 2013
Nice interior, the only similarity I see with this and the LFA is the center console sloping up and the race car steering wheel with the flat bottom. I think the color combo is what makes people think they are similar. Btw I think the LFA might have the best steering wheel period!
Adam Thomson Jan 17, 2013
Nice interior!!
Randy Hjelm Jan 16, 2013
Don't like how they drug out the center console like a Ferrari
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 16, 2013
All I wanna know it how you shift is it like the jag with a rotator shifter!?
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 16, 2013
Crz?!? LMFAO GTFO here with that nonsense!
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
Yea I'd agree lol, the crz isn't the greatest car in existence lol
Stephen Tyler Learn Jan 16, 2013
@matt I completely forgot about the crz. Probably because it sucks haha
Tim Preisinger Jan 16, 2013
The center console is the one thing that looks bad with this interior
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
The crz has a manual
Stephen Tyler Learn Jan 16, 2013
Has there ever been a hybrid with a manual?
Oleg Odessit Jan 16, 2013
By the look of the console there will be no manual
Jack Howard Jan 16, 2013
I agree with William
Stephen Tyler Learn Jan 16, 2013
That center console is retarded
Bala Uncc Jan 16, 2013
Looks a lot like LFA
Ryan Heetderks Jan 16, 2013
I think it matches the exterior design nicely!
William Downs Jan 16, 2013
The shapes and lines of thendash scream honda, but the general shape and lay out of the dash and center counsel look alot like the lfa's interior... very nice interior
Darryle Moody Jan 16, 2013
The center console's width appears to be very good. Not to wide and not to narrow. Nice details with compartments.
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
Looks better than the LFA IMO. And the LFA has a damn nice interipr
Tristan Calangi Ü Jan 16, 2013
LFA copy
Nate Vongshotivat Jan 16, 2013
Why so LFA like?
