    Lol.

    I drove one hard for 11 laps in Vegas. I liked it, didnít blow me away.

    For 200k, itís a pass for an R8. For 150k, it makes a lot of sense.

    Looking forward to what they do for the S. Iím thinking 620hp

    I'll contradict a lot of what I've said about a lot of cars when I say "the interior is horse shit on this car".
    Other than that, it's apparently amazing. Which is all that really matters.

    Yes, you’re right.

    It was too ambitious with motors and gizmos. If it was 140k new, 3500lbs with an 8000rpm 3.5L 525hp turbo.

    It would have sold better.

    Sales figures back up the fact that this is a better commercial strategy. Vette sells two thousand a month, Acura sells two hundred a year.

    Yes. But you know, an Acura vette.

    Nsx is basically hand built. Corvette is not.

    People wouldn’t feel slightly itchy driving the Acura if they’re not mullet infused rednecks or old men.

    That’s the stigma

    I feel like Acura really missed an opportunity with this car. It's a very capable car but is the automotive equivalent of an answer to a question that nobody asked. As with the GT-R most of the people that want an NSX cannot afford to pay six digits for one.

    Do they really think they can sell 350 of these?

    It was. I think Honda failed to acknowledge what made the original a success - simplicity and a compelling price point. Perhaps the former is neigh impossible in today's automotive world, but the latter is a back breaker in light of better competition with marquee badges.

    Yeah and those people can barely afford a Supra let alone a car that's costs x 2.5 times more. There's still a lot of 90's Japanese nostalgia as look at the Civic Type R being sold over MSRP in the USA for it's entire model run.

    I like the idea of the car but I don’t like the price. If I was in the market I wouldn’t want to spend that kind of coin on a NSX.
