Motor Trend: 2015 Acura TLX Caught Testing

Acura NSX Prototype

The battle for the first Acura NSX continues in the latest episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. A cleverly placed Acura NSX Prototype ignites a short skit between Jerry and special guest Jay Leno as they pull up for coffee in a 1949 Porsche 356/2.

The last time we saw Seinfeld and Leno compete for the first NSX was in Acura’s Super Bowl XLVI Commercial.
