Inside Line gives us a closer look at Tony Stark’s Acura NSX from the forthcoming flick, The Avengers. Though it looks like the Acura NSX Concept that’s been making the auto show appearances as of late, it’s a re-envisioned 1991 Acura NSX under the new design, interior and all. How else was Acura going to out-show Tony’s R8 from the Iron Man movies? If you’re wondering why Inside Line says this beauty ranks right up there with the bat-mobile as one of the most impressive movie cars ever built, check out the video below.
With their first ever Superbowl ad to air this coming Sunday, Acura has really aimed for the fences by showing off a beauty we can’t wait to see on the road. The spot features Jerry Seinfeld and even gets another notable car collector on the screen — Jay Leno. Production of the Acura NSX is set to commence in 2015 with manufacturing of the super car to take place in the United States for the first time. Oh and don’t think it’s going to be a push over as it features the automaker’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD technology to take things next level.
An extended version of the spot that’s set to air this Sunday can be seen below.
After months (if not years) of waiting, Acura has finally unveiled their next-generation NSX Supercar. Though still a concept, the it boasts the car’s future exterior design inspiration as well as what’s under the hood. Power comes from a mid-rear V6 engine that’s made to an electric motor to form a hybrid setup. The SH-AWD setup also features a dual-clutch transmission for added performance, while the two motors can instantly send negative or positive torque to the front wheels for improved handling. No word yet on horsepower figures but expect the power-to-weight ratio to be top-notch.
Acura and Studio Dror recently collaborated on a limited-edition desk inspired by the automaker’s role in Thor, the new Marvel film that’s due out May 6th. The S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Desk features a graphite and light wood base with subtle insignia on legs. The Acura TL’s chassis inspires the finish and the overall aesthete of the desk is very refined. We like the clean look of it all like the concealed Bose speakers and secret drawers and compartments. There’s also a discreet iPhone/iPad docking station.
