The new future car 2016 Acura NSX spotted testing yesterday on the Nuburgring has caught on fire during the session. The occupants in the car have reportedly escaped virtually unharmed but this inferno just means that Acura has officially entered the supercar territory. The well known exotics like Ferrari and Lamborghini have caught on fire before, so catching on fire has become somewhat of a cult requirement before a company can join the supercars category.
With a touch of irony, this NSX is the exact same car photographers caught only yesterday has been reduced to a mass of charred metal remains. You shouldn’t be worrying about it too much though, as car manufacturers really test their new vehicles to their ultimate limit before they fix all of the issues accordingly.
Based on these new spy shot photos, it looks like the future car Acura NSX is back. While it will still bear the Honda name in most countries, the new NSX has tons of different colors, badging, and grilles for a more fierce and aggressive look. The shape of the new NSX is visibly evolving with extra sculpting given for the doors and a really nice side intake. This NSX will also get a really nice LED treatment, just like many Acura models are equipped with a higher end lighting system.
What’s a mystery is the car’s hood vents because it’s so carefully covered under all of that camo wrap but it should be pretty impressive. The price tag on this new NSX is sure to be over six-figures, giving it some credibility when it asserts its status as a luxury brand. The NSX will have a dual-clutch automatic transmission with a hybrid powertrain V-6 engine.
