Honda Acura NSX Takes Detroit Show by Storm

January 14, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Over at the Detroit Motor Show, one car that managed to grab as many eyeballs as the Lexus LF-LC concept was the Acura NSX. For those who do not totally understand why, Acura is Honda’s premium brand and the original NSX, launched in 1989, was the one car that defined the modern, usable supercar.

This is the time to be impressed by the looks of the car and not go into its power and other specs. Man, isn’t she a real beauty. It kind of looks like the Audi R8, which along with many other supercars, was inspired by the NSX.

The car looks light and small, so it must be quick as well. Takanobu Ito, President and CEO of Honda Motor Co., who led the development of Honda’s first NSX supercar, said that Honda will again express high performance through engineering efficiency, like the first NSX. In this new era, even as the company focuses on the fun to drive spirit of the NSX, he said he thought a supercar must respond positively to environmental responsibilities.

And in case you are not as impressed by the photos of the car as you should be, let us say it looks much better in metal than in photo. And this one is a concept; a road-ready NSX will be coming in three years time, according to the Honda people.

Hopefully with not much changes to the exterior.
