Next-gen NSX/Sports Car prototype spied on the 'Ring
 Date: June 17, 2008 13:01

 Credibility Rating: Not Specified


You've likely seen all the spy shots from KGP Photography already, but Brenda Priddy & Co. got some shots of their own. There's already been a lot of discussion surrounding the KGP shots in our forums, and at least one user is questioning whether this car is really the NSX, or perhaps some other new "sub-NSX" sports model as the photos make this car appear rather small. Also, notice the Z06 ZR-1(?) in the background of the first pic, apparently being used as a benchmark during this test session being tested at the same time as the Honda sports car. A while back there were some rumors that Acura was working on a sub-NSX sports car that would be priced in the $50-60k bracket, a so-called Corvette-fighter. Considering the fact that the next-gen NSX isn't expected to debut until the Tokyo motor show in 2009, it's possible that this car, which appears largely finished, could be that long-rumored mid range sports coupe.
