    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Wait to see depreciation on the 570S after one year. I'm guess it will be not that bad and much better than all other McLarens, but better safe than sorry.

    I'm fascinated with the technology. How the electrical power works with the combustion engine. I would like to give this car a chance. 

    Same here. I think Honda did a great job technically and the new NSX is a worthy successor to the original car. Smiley

    NSX is a 918 lite, pure and simple.

    It will be very different than anything on the market right now.

    I have gone over the specs and conversations with relevant personal, it will be a considered a bargain at 1/10 of what a 918 cost while providing 75% of what the 918 offers..

    Here we go - that's what I said couple of threads ago. I too think, that the NSX concept and price is uncomparable. Great specs, amazing tech - light years ahead of any 991

    That is quite an endorsement. I may have to take a second look at this car.Smiley

    I haven't seen it in the flesh and wonder whether it looks like a $165,000 car.

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    I had a good look at Geneva, and like it a lot. The front has quite a bit of busy current corporate identity stuff going on but overall it looked vey good to me. Well-proportioned and very neat from most angles. Will look pretty elegant in a dark colour I think.

    I read a first test by a Swiss car journalist. He was very impressed. And saying : this car is not about Ring times. 

     I do find the car very interesting.  If only I can get used , or not see , that front who looks likes a civic ...

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    One race car driver who I will not name is part of our 918 owners group, and he was quite involved in tuning the new NSX's handling with Honda.

    In Switzerland Japanese cars are very well represented. Probably equal if not more then German cars.

    Another view & certainly not a Civic. 

    Honda has always had a different way to say the same thing.....lots of successes. 

    Owned many generation 1 NSX's .

    Definitely more subtle. Smiley

    But on a more serious note, I think the new NSX looks great from behind and viewed from the side as well.

    The front is a bit busy, with its body colour, gloss black, chrome and mesh elements. Reminds me of the messed up fronts of all current McLarens (570 is best in this respect, actually in all visual aspects Smiley).
    But whereas McLaren has a problem with the styling, I think with the NSX it's mainly a problem of too many different materials at the front. Less would be more in this respect.

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Honda always did tend to go its own way where styling is concerned, sometimes to good effect, sometimes maybe less so. 

    At least, they can't be accused of copying every new trend.

    It's not a bad looking car at all, in the mound of a R8. That is, sporty but not extravagant unlike say Ferraris or Lambos.

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    Must admit I'm on the list for one as a bit of jingoism set in since much of the NSX was designed in the States as well as built in Ohio.

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    A friend told me that he is on a list to get one and it will take up to 18 months.

    Re: 2017 Acura NSX

    LOL. 18 months is an eternity in today's car market. I can't figure out why people order normal cars that take two years to get. Car is old by the time you get it and new stuff is already available and announced elsewhere. It's one thing if you're getting something really special, but it's another if it's a normal production car. 

    Wait 18 months for your NSX, or buy one off the lot in 20 months, or buy a used one for under MSRP in 12 months.
