Several new renders based on the 2016 Acura NSX have appeared since our first render roundup. One in particular from Pratyush Rout/Chris Doane Automotive of a blue NSX Type-R is in the spotlight after its recent feature on both Car and Driver and AutoGuide.com. Some of my new favorites featured in the gallery above may not have gotten as much attention, but they’re still very impressive. Drop me a line if you have any info or links for the artists of these renders.
An NSX Prototype was spotted a long way from home again, but this time it wasn’t track testing in Germany.
Last week the NSX was caught hot-weather testing in a town called Alice Springs in Northern Territory, Australia. Australian automotive website CarAdvice has collected several photos of the camouflaged vehicle seen around town, which probably wasn’t hard to miss especially with the bright yellow “left hand drive” sticker on the rear. Some have speculated Acura engineers were in Northern Territory to make use of a particular stretch of highway with an open speed limit just outside of Alice Springs.
See the full article and the rest of the photos at caradvice.com.au – Honda NSX spied testing in Australia.
While both issues are now available in hard copy and as a digital download, Motor Trend’s feature on the NSX can be viewed online at motortrend.com – New Sports Experience: The Second Coming of Acura’s Halo Supercar.
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:

Rapper/Actor Chris “Ludacris” Bridges was on hand for a VIP reveal of the 2016 Acura NSX last week where he gave his first reaction to Motor Trend:
“I’m a loss for words, I mean I don’t know what to say — it’s amazing. It’s almost like a hybrid between all of the great supercars, put together in one — that’s how I feel about it. As [exterior designer Michelle Christensen] continued to explain, the aerodynamics, the design, the body, it’s one thing to look at it, it’s another thing to hear. It’s the future, man. This is the future.” - Ludacris
A long time owner of a 1993 Acura Legend, Ludacris has a growing relationship with the Acura brand and has been involved in several Acura events in the past year.

X-Tomi Design chops the top off the new NSX and presents the return of the NSX-T. An open-top version of the second-generation NSX isn’t too hard to imagine, we’ve already seen the one off NSX Roadster in the Avengers movie a few years ago. While Acura hasn’t officially announced plans for a convertible NSX, Chief Engineer Ted Klaus has made mention of an open-top model further down the road. Click here for a 900×506 pixel version.

The second generation Acura NSX debuted in a sizzling red color this week, a nice homage to the cherry-red NSX that made its world debut at the Chicago Auto Show in 1989. But if red just isn’t your color, here are a few quick renders of the new NSX in other hues.
