So $170k for a whale that performs worse than a Corvette?

And man...that thing is sure ugly!

read a good article a while back (I think jalop) about how the r8 served as the halo car for Audi, and did it's actual job of getting people interested in Audi, and cues from the car eventually filtering down to it's other cars blah blah. They (and I) don't see this doing anything for Acura/Honda. Could be wrong though

Really cool looking car, but I'd buy a Z06 or GTR for that money.

That thing weighs as much as my work car without my factory widebody in the driver's seat!!!

It does look sicker than an AIDS dick with a festering syphilis sore on the head, though.

EDIT: I'd rather have a 911 Turbo and spend the extra 20K on my high speed mediacom connection for redtube.

What's wrong with cars these days? Nothing seems to stir my soul like they used to.....like the previous NSX's did.

As a big Honda enthusiast, I dont see why this would cost $170k or who would actually pay that. Being said, I hope they sell well and perform extremely well but I think it will bring more disappointment then happiness for all of the NSX fans out there.

IMO they should have done the same as the big 3 and simply made a modern version of the classic that everyone loves. Meh

Looks like they took an audi r8 and sprinkled some nsx icing on it. Tried to cram so much junk in it that it became a land whale and lost the whole spirit of the car.

It's kind of like Honda raided the garbage bin for all of the rejected ideas on the new Ford GT, and put them on this car.
