It didn’t take long for digital artists and photoshoppers to have their way with the new Acura NSX. If you knew where to search, you could probably find the 2016 NSX rendered in the color of your choice shortly after the debut. But the customizations didn’t end with just a few color changes or wheel swaps, visions of different NSX variations started to appear within the week, from a simple targa top model to the extreme GT racer featured above.
From Facebook, Instagram and around the web, I compiled a few of my favorite 2016 Acura NSX renders and added them to the gallery above. For more info on the artists, see the list below:
• GT500 NSX - Khyzyl Saleem
• Super Widebody Kit - HugoSilva Designs
• 2016 Acura NSX Widebody - Carlifestyle
• Liberty Walk NSX - Top Tier Imports/@shaunjeroski
• Acura NSX Type-R - X-Tomi Design
• Acura NSX Type-R in Championship White - Sinh-Truong

You’ll find a handful of Acuras at the newly opened Honda Heritage Center in Marysville Ohio, but the one car you’ve probably never seen or heard of before is the mysterious Acura Sedan Design Study.
Created in early 2011, the Acura Sedan Design Study looks like a sleek sedan version of the Acura NSX Roadster that appeared in The Avengers from 2012. While the rear of the car is lacking and begging for details, other design elements like the long sloping roofline and short front overhangs are things I would be excited to see in future Acura sedans. Check out that side profile and tell me you don’t agree.
We reached out to our contact at Acura and she provided a few extra photos and the description which appears alongside the vehicle at the Honda Heritage Center:
Acura Sedan Design Study
Most concept cars are never seen outside the walls of Honda R&D Americas’ California design studios.
This never-before-seen concept, the Acura Sedan Design Study, was created by stylists at the Acura Design Studio in early 2011 to set the direction for future Acura luxury performance sedans.
The Acura Sedan Design Study exterior styling pursued a modern design with classic luxury sedan proportions – low and wide, with a longer dash-to-axle ratio (the distance between the leading edge of the dash and the front axle). The styling is accented by ceramic- type headlights and chrome trim that runs the length of the body, finishing as rear taillights.
A customizable interior was designed to achieve a new HMI (human-machine interface) experience with an elegant and intuitive layout, a three-dimensional meter design and a navigation system where the user will feel immersed in the decision-making.
With the Acura Sedan Design Study, the styling team created a road map for Acura design – a direction that has since been eclipsed by further styling concepts that will lead to future Acura luxury sedans.

Check out some snapshots from Tyson Hugie at the 2015 North American International Auto Show for the Acura NSX debut. He ended up with seats right behind comedian Jerry Seinfeld who later posed for a quick photo. There’s also a preview of some NSX merchandise that will be available from Acura later this year.
And if you want to see how the NSX reveal was like from the second row behind Jerry Seinfeld, watch the clip from Tyson below.

The Honda Heritage Center in Marysville Ohio opened its doors this month, and inside there’s a mystery Acura Concept on display. With the museum opening to the public in January, so far there isn’t much information about the vehicle, but it’s clearly visible in the video footage provided by Honda.
As some have pointed out on the forums, this 4-door concept shares a similar front end design with the Avengers NSX Roadster, especially the headlights. The grille however looks more recent, closer to the new 2016 Acura ILX. Its sloping roofline and hidden door handles remind me a bit of the ZDX.
Is the concept a design study from the past, or hint at a future model? We’ll keep you posted.

Official release from Honda Media Newsroom:
Acura NSX Production Model to Make World Debut at 2015 North American International Auto Show
Dec 17, 2014 - TORRANCE, Calif.
The production version of the highly anticipated Acura NSX supercar, successor to the legendary original NSX, will make its world debut at the 2015 North American International Auto Show on Jan. 12, 2015. The model will reflect the production design and specifications of the mid-engine Acura supercar that is slated to launch in 2015. To celebrate the impending debut of NSX, Acura released a 30-second teaser video that gives an early glimpse of the production car and the sound of its three-motor, twin-turbocharged Sport Hybrid power unit. View the video on Acura’s YouTube channel at youtube.com/Acura.
“The next-generation NSX will deliver a ‘new sports experience’ true to its heritage and to the supercar concept that originally gave rise to the name NSX,” said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager. “The NSX will serve as the ultimate expression of Acura performance that is fueling a reenergized brand.”
