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:

Not bad, I like the overall shape and styling but the grille and front head lights look like the same material? It looks plastic, I think a chrome grille and black housing head lights would work! More photos please!
The rear looks sweet, I like how the LEDs light up!
Acura is 4ever going to be teasing us w/ concepts that will never be built …
Well I wouldn’t be too surprised this turned out to be concept they might actually produce. Maybe a S2000 type hybrid roadster? I can’t really tell from the photos if the dimensions are S2000 or NSX size.
Its possible it could be all for hype, but I would think Acura would have some response prepared when the movie is eventually released and everyone sees that car.
Acura’s still using that ugly ass grille? WHAT THE %[email protected]!!!.
Yes, Acura definitely needs to go this route for their new NSX. It’s unique, exxotic and I/m sure a wave of the future. Get away from the normal progress of style and make this one a home run hit right out of the park just the the original one was. Hope they see this.
