Next Evolution Acura NSX Concept

As the photos started trickling in from NAIAS 2013, I couldn’t help but notice how much better the NSX Concept looked compared to the shows of last year. When you factor in the exterior updates, the new metallic paint job, and a new display stage with improved lighting, I figure it would be pretty difficult to turn out a bad shot of the NSX Concept 2.0. Some of the best photos in my opinion come courtesy of Canadian site Beyond.ca. The one featured above is one of my favorite shots of the NSX Concept so far.

Head over to Beyond.ca to check out the full set of NSX Concept and MDX Prototype photos.
