Newport Convertible engineering was first US coach builder which designed, engineered and distributed Acura NSX Convertible.
Acura signed on for a multi picture deal with Marvel to have its cars featured in a series of superhero movies. their NSX is featured in Avengers, where it replaced Tony Stark’s Audi R8. The Japanese automaker put together a new gen NSX for the film.
They took a 1991 NSX and gave it a new roadster body to mimic the concept car that’s been making the rounds of the auto show circuit. The folks over at Inside Line got a behind-the-scenes look at the roadster, along with the kitted-out MDX crossover and a TL with a similar treatment. Check out the video clips of them having fun after the jump.
By now you know the routine with most highly anticipated cars: the automaker releases a few awesome sketches, which are then followed up by a toned-down concept model. Not so with the 2015 Acura NSX.
What you see here are the design sketches for the NSX Concept, to which the concept that wowed us at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show stayed surprisingly true. Drawn at the automaker’s studio in Southern California, the sketches also show a bit of the interior, which was absent from the physical concept.
It’s too soon to say if any or all of what’s been reveal thus far will migrate to the production model. But as long as Acura doesn’t veer too far away from the concept, we’d say it has a compelling and proper follow up to the much-loved predecessor.
