Rendered: Darth Maul’s 2017 Honda NSX

What earthly cars would Star Wars characters choose?

UK automotive website carwow answers that question with 8 cleverly modded car renders, each based on its owner’s unique characteristics.

As it turns out, the new 2017 Acura/Honda NSX is fitting for the Sith Lord Darth Maul:

“We’ve been waiting for the new hybrid Honda NSX for as long as we have a new Star Wars film, but luckily our favourite double-ended lightsaberist has convinced Honda to make sure he gets one of the first cars off the production line. Complete with horned exterior and enough aerodynamic bolt-ons to completely destabilise any car stupid enough to give chase, Darth Maul’s NSX is a wicked work of sinister beauty.” – Tim Rodie, carwow

Rendered: Widebody NSX by Jon Sibal

Check out the latest NSX widebody rendering by popular automotive Graphic Designer and Illustrator Jon Sibal. According to Jon, the silver Honda NSX is featured in a double page spread in the November issue of Super Street magazine.

It’s only one of three renders that Jon has crafted for the new NSX. Have a peek at his previous two renders in the gallery above.

Rendered: Acura NSX Roadster in Nouvelle Blue Pearl

We’ve seen a few renderings of an open-top version of the new NSX, but this latest one from Remco M is based on the newly introduced Nouvelle Blue Pearl color. Remco says he opted for a targa top rather than a convertible to “keep the R&D costs lower” and to maintain body rigidity. Click here for a 900×600 pixel image.

Rendered: 2017 Acura TLX

Acura Designers got it right with the refreshed 2016 Acura RDX. A lot of the new Acura styling elements have been carried over from the 2016 ILX, but the differences in their designs seem to really benefit the RDX. Compared to its predacessor, the new Jewel Eye headlights and edgier details give the 2016 RDX a more aggressive and premium look.

I loved the styling so much I wondered how it would translate onto the TLX. Although the TLX has another two years before a refresh, I imagine it would look something like the render above if it followed the styling trends of the 2016 ILX and RDX. Click here for 795×320 pixel image.

Rendered: Next Generation NSX Racer

Here’s a recent rendering from TKF Renders of an NSX Racer based on the next generation NSX. What’s neat about this one is that it’s an actual 3D model, allowing us to see a detailed view of both the front and rear of the car.

Rendered: RealTime Racing Acura Coupe Concept

Artist Robert Meijer created this RealTime Racing Acura Coupe based on the new Civic Concept. I do love the design of the Civic Concept, but seeing this render I actually think the V-shape of the Acura grille is a better fit with all the hard angles on the front bumper.

Although this render was all in good fun, with the announcement of some new turbocharged engines and a Civic Type-R launching in the U.S., you’ve got to wonder if Acura will follow up with it’s own sporty coupe.

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.
