Hot Weather Testing in the UAE



Seems the NSX is still undergoing calibration and durability testing as it was recently spied sporting full camo in the UAE.

Production has been pushed back into the early part of 2016, due to a myriad of delays. Oddly however, this prototype seems to be wearing projector headlamps instead of the Jewel Eye LED's we've seen on the production model that debuted in Detroit and most recently on the uncovered car lapping the Nurburgring.



Still undergoing hot weather testing at this stage of the game is strange, however is it possible that Acura and Honda are outfitting the NSX with more power, maybe even more electric power? Their initial benchmark, the Ferrari 458 has been replaced with the far more powerful Twin Turbo 488.

While the waiting game is starting to push into the realm of absurdity, if this latest push back is related to more power, who are we to complain?

Waiting to get an NSX is like hunting down Big Foot. There are sightings, you always seem to getting a little closer, but deep down you know that it is impossible.

Anyone have an idea of why the filling of the front fascia is black or white. This other thread shows it looking much different.

I bet we'll see a lot of production NSX's on the road in the middle east, been seeing a growing interest for Acura's over there especially in Dubai where there's more of the wealthy.

Acura is more of an affordable luxury brand. I question how popular it will be in Dubai since they are very opulent there.

Dubai seems like a go big or go home market when it comes to luxury vehicles. Not sure how well an affordable luxury brand will do there.

I always thought there was room for affordable luxury brand to enter the market and do well, don't see why not.

I'm sure there are people who are looking for something a bit more affordable than the rest of what is out there. Families with slightly less money, or that just like to be more frugal.
