The NSX had a lot to live up to with all the hype that's developed around the car's return over the last few years, but the finally arrived production model did. It's modern, sleek and aggressive, yet it retains a clear design connection with the original NSX. During the car's reveal, Acura said team members from the original NSX project were part of the group working on the new car.
The front-end looks good and appropriately exotic. It's covered with cooling inlets and a slim version of Acura's corporate shield grille. The car is designed so air flows through the front inlets and out the hood and fender vents, both of which are new design elements since the last NSX concept. The rear gets a prominent diffuser and quad exhaust outlets. The overall look is more McLaren than Ferrari or Lamborghini.
