The next NSX has been revealed at the North American Show. I loved the previous NSX. Great engine, gearbox and build quality.

This new one will be built in Ohio and , I'm sure be ultra reliable with a sowing machine engine and snick snick box but it looks frumpy in a high set sort of way.

How do you see this as an automotive design? I want to like it but it looks heavy!

DITTO. I'm with u, I luv'd the original esp early years with the pop up headlamps. Great design original SHRINK WRAPPED lightweight n great engine. Reliability bar none back in it's hey day. New NSX has Lotus Espirit (concept) look, which isn't really a bad thing I guess;)

R8-looking front? I think the mini mac will blow it out of the water, performance-wise. As far as looks... We'll see... Frank seems to be very excited about it!

Looks a bit like the R8 as mentioned above which isn't a bad thing. Don't mind the looks personally but will it be engineered as well as the old NSX? Running the hybrid drivetrain also probably means it's going to be rather heavy.....

Exterior is too chiseled, needs to be more organic.
Interior is very nice however.
Actually, its like they dont match, clearly two teams came up with their own result.

A luxury sports car. It looks a lot better than their competition Cadillac IMHO. And I agree that the R8 nose look is a good thing. Nice

Someone at Honda actually thinks those wheels are good looking? :(

Apart from those wheels, this car is going to win minds and hearts. Concept wheels, still time to replace those wheels Japan.

If Honda produce an engine that spins and sings like no other then it will win hearts and minds. Shame there will be no room for the S2000 snick snick gearbox which is so brilliant to use and also like no other box I have used.

My concern would be that the chassis is ordinary as the S2000 is mediocre ( terrible in my book ).
