Rendered: Acura CDX Crossover

Recent news of a potential small crossover model from Acura has prompted Russian automotive website DRIVE.RU to create this rendering of the Acura “CDX”.

There really isn’t too much to the rendering, it simply places the whole front end of the 2016 Acura RDX onto the body of the Honda HR-V and adds some new wheels. It does however give us an idea of how the newer Acura styling traits would look with the compact proportions of the HR-V platform. Of course, if Acura did create its own version of the HR-V, we’d expect significant upgrades both inside and out to distinguish itself as a premium vehicle.

2016 Acura NSX Render Compilation Part 2

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.

2016 Acura NSX Render Compilation

Acura NSX Le Mans Race Car

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

Rendered: Next Generation Acura NSX Targa

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.

Rendered: 2016 Acura NSX Color Options

2016 Acura NSX Andaro Blue

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.

Rendered: Acura TLX Type-S

I thought it would be fun to give the new Acura TLX a new front end, one that could give us an idea of what an aggressive Type-S variant might look like. This semi-quick render took about 4 hours, I meant to just play with the front bumper but ended up doing some last minute additions with an alternate TLX GT grille, Type-S badge, and wheels. Admittedly, the front was a bit “Audi RS” inspired. Leave me a comment below and let me know what you think.

Rendered: 2016 Acura ILX

2016 Acura ILX Rendering

Here’s another take on a refreshed ILX exterior from graphic artist Hondatalover. The render incorporates Acura’s Jewel Eye headlights and an updated, more aggressive front bumper. Overall I think these changes work really well for the ILX. We expect both exterior and powertrain changes for the 2016 mid-cycle model change. Click here for a 900×450 image.
