Report: Acura back to the drawing board with the NSX

When Acura unveiled the new Advanced Sports Car Concept at the Detroit Auto Show, everyone went crazy saying that the car “dynamically styled concept which provides a preview of the design direction for the successor to the Acura NSX.” While it’s being said that Acura would unveil a full blown NSX concept with a V10 engine at the upcoming Tokyo Show in October, don’t hold your breath just yet.

A source familiar with the Tokyo Show car has told WindingRoad that the concept won’t be for real and that Acura has completely ripped the whole Advanced Sports Car Concept script and will start from scratch since top Honda management isn’t happy with where the car is headed.

Unfortunately, the source reported that the front-engine V10 and all-wheel-drive will stay on board.
