No way will they sell a v10 for 50k... try 150k like said earlier. All info regarding the NSX was 100K+ for the next generation.

I have always loved the NSX... it was such an amazing car for its time, which I guess is the reason that Honda didn't change it all that much for 15 years. They have always been priced out of my league though... for 90 or 100k I'll just buy a porsche. I'm not big on the 4 tips though... reminds me of an IS-F.

That is if in fact it is the NSX. There is some speculation that this may be a sub-nsx sports car that may have a V-8.

+1 It's going to be out-of-reach for a lot of people. But I love how it looks so far!

The original test mule for the car had an S2000 body.

It was tested using an S2K to fool people, but most people guessed it was the NSX.

During the 1990s, there was no shortage of Japanese performance cars, with offerings like the Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo, Toyota Supra Turbo and Acura NSX. But due to several factors, these models slowly died out, leaving a void in the performance ca market. But things are back into full swing in the late 2000s and it looks as though the competition is just starting to heat up.

Nissan was the first to fire a shot across the bow of its rival Japanese automakers with its GT-R, and now the likes of Lexus and Acura are preparing to fight back. Lexus has already stated that it plans to best the GT-R’s 7 minute 29 second sprint around Germany’s Nürburgring with its upcoming LF-A and now Honda CEO Takeo Fukui has reportedly ordered that the next-generation NSX beat both rival supercars around the famous track.

Although besting the GT-R’s mark is a tall order, the NSX might just have the goods to do it. Acura’s next supercar is said to be powered by a 550 horsepower 5.5L V10 derived from the V8 to be used in the company’s all-new RL sedan, with power being sent to all four wheels via an updated version of the company’s SH-AWD. An eight-speed gearbox should help to keep the V10 in its sweet spot.

However, with development of the Nissan GT-R V-Spec already underway, Acura engineers may have to account for a much lower lap time to beat.
V10 is ridiculous on a asian car IMHO. GT-R went the smart way, V6 and FI the mofo

Doubt its FR. I would give Honda some credit with the fact they have a F1 team. S2000 is an icon of all times and so is the NSX.

Honda has some of the world's best engineers and are right up there with Ferrari and BWM. The thing is that Honda is a very conservative car company. But when they want to create great engines, they know how to do so, and i believe they will deliver with the performance of this car.

Apparently, the president of Honda was recently reported to have said that this car will beat both the GTR and the Lexus supercar around the ring. Bold words...
