    It should turn out to be aweseme. Don't expect GTR or Z06. Expect modern 1G NSX. It sucks having to keep my mouth shut:) There are rumors of 0-100 kph in 3s flat...

    I love it overall. The thing is tiny btw. Smaller than an R8 or the 458. Miniscule compared to a GTR. I LOVE the roof line, and the C-Pillar treatment. Not digging the wheels. The Acura beak is meh. Good thing those are easy to fix.

    Nice looking car. It reminds me of the R8 a little, but that's not a big deal. 0-100kph in 3 flat? Yes plz.

    All you need is Will Smith with a robot arm in the driver's seat.

    Is that the new trend? Make all of your vehicles look essentially the same from the front and call it good?

    Yea, lots of companies are going to a corporate front end. Audi, Acura, Chevy, Dodge to name a few. Some have been doing it for a loooong time though. BMW comes to mind. Some companies get it right, others (like Acura and Volvo) just screw up all their cars with it.

    It's going to be designed in the office I work in and built down the road. They are setting up a low production facility adjascent to the plant that Accords and TL's are built. The Acura corporate front end has been tough. The 09' TL was a bad execution. The car looked badass in the sketches but turned out fugly. They were able to tone it down at the minor model change for 2011. Look at the new ILX coming out soon and you can see that they are starting to figure it out. FYI - the ILX is Civic based and designed to compete with the high trim Focus and Elantra.

    An improvement. But I think I know why I like it. It looks like a squared off version of the 99-00 Si front end. lol

    Love the lines on the back. Look a little BMWesque, but that's a good thing.
