Spy Video: Next-Generation Acura NSX at the Nurburgring

Spy Video: Acura NSX at the Nurburgring

From this spy video shot by AutoCar, this may seem like a tuned Honda S2000. When in fact this is Honda’s next-generation Acura NSX hitting up the Nurburgring for some high-speed testing. Why is this test mule wearing the Honda S2000 body?

Well that’s because Acura engineers have completely ripped the whole Advanced Sports Car Concept script, which the NSX was supposed to be based on, and have decided to start from scratch since top Honda management isn”t happy with where the car is headed.

It was said that a redesigned Advanced Sports Car Concept is headed to Tokyo Motor Show this October, but rumors from Japan say that Honda has decided not to display it since designers are still unsure of the direction it’s going in.

The next-generation is expected to be powered by a V10 unit producing above 500 horsepower.
