Acura might be the vehicle of choice for Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, but it would appear Tony Stark(Iron Man) will also choose an Acura as his new ride in The Avengers.
To the surprise of many, a never-before-seen Acura open-top sports car was captured filming on set in New York for The Avengers this past weekend. The maroon-colored mystery Acura has raised a few questions; could this be a concept for an NSX successor or a whole new model?
Autoblog.com has thankfully done some digging and got a reponse from Acura spokesperson Gary Robinson:
The open-top sports car that was photographed yesterday is a one-off, fictional car that was made just for the movie and will not be produced.
That said, as you may also know, our CEO has said publicly that we are studying the development of a new sportscar, but we can’t say any more about it at this time.” – Gary Robinson via Autoblog

A S.H.I.E.L.D. TL was also photographed on set, this one looked like it had a matte grey color and front push bars:
