Acura Unveils Next Evolution of NSX Concept at 2013 North American International Auto Show
Acura provides first look at possible NSX interior design concept
01/15/2013 - DETROIT, Mich
Acura today unveiled a new NSX Concept that showcases the evolution of the next-generation supercar’s styling and design, including a first-ever look at one possible direction for the next-generation NSX interior design.
“This further evolution of the Acura NSX Concept design is remarkably true to the original concept styling,” said Mike Accavitti, vice president of national marketing operations. “We’re making great progress in delivering on the expectations we created a year ago, with advanced technology that will bring new levels of performance and a unique, dynamic experience to the exotic sports car market.”
The new Acura NSX Concept is based on the expected underpinnings of the vehicle Acura will bring to market. Still, the new NSX Concept maintains its low and wide stance with the dynamic and alluring proportions that debuted in the original NSX Concept at the 2012 North American International Auto Show — highlighted by clean, modern and simple surfacing, and edgy details that communicate supercar attitude and a high-tech feel.
The new NSX Concept also features a first-ever look at one potential direction for the next-generation Acura NSX interior design. The design concept is founded on a “Human Support Cockpit” theme, a strong expression of Acura’s product direction focused on “the synergy between man and machine.” The interior package boasts outstanding visibility, an exotic driving position, and an intuitive “Simple Sports Interface” that minimizes interior clutter, allowing the driver to focus on the driving experience.

Along with the photo AsianMartin tweeted, “It’s official, production Acura NSX to be unveiled on Tuesday.”
There have been rumors that a production NSX with full interior will be unveiled soon, but as it stands there has been no official announcement from Acura.

I remember when the mysterious Acura Roadster was first spied on set last year during the filming of The Avengers, everyone asked, “Where the heck are the headlights?”. That silver strip that ran across the entire front actually looked pretty cool, but it still had me wondering, what would it look like with actual headlights in place?
With some quick photoshop I gave the Avengers Roadster the headlights found on the NSX Concept and also a slightly darker, more metallic looking grille. It’s not my best work, but it’s nice to finally visualize that idea I had in my head.

I hope everyone loved the NSX Concept that Acura unveiled early this year, because there is a good chance what we saw is exactly what we’ll get. According to several several sites, recent images filed by Honda from China’s patent office show an identical design to the NSX Concept. The Acura grille remains in place, as the new NSX will be branded and sold in China with Acura badging.
Whether or not the Chinese patent images are legitimate, this past week there have also been rumors spreading that a “production” NSX will be revealed at the upcoming 2013 North American International Auto Show in January, and that the styling will stay true to the Concept.
The next-generation NSX is expected to go on sale within three years, likely as a 2015 model.

Holiday Auto Rendering: Mini NSX
Motor Trend sources say a small version of the upcoming Acura NSX could be in the works, arriving a year or two after the 2015 NSX. The “Mini NSX” would obviously be smaller in size and less powerful, but could potentially share some of the new technologies and parts being developed for the new Sport Hybrid SH-AWD NSX. Priced in the range of $50,000 to $60,000, the Mini NSX would be a more affordable option to the “real” NSX which is estimated to cost approximately $130,000.
The rendering above from Japanese “car scoop” magazine Holiday Auto gives a rough idea of what the Mini NSX could look like. Notice the artist kept the Honda badge, but chose to incorporate the Acura grille.
