2016 Acura NSX Spotted in the Wild

2 red NSX's spotted out in the wild being bench marked against an Audi R8 and Porsche 911!

Quote:
It appears that Acura is benchmarking the new NSX against some of the world’s finest sports cars.

Photos of the 2016 Acura NSX out in the wild were posted onto the internet, showing the Japanese automaker’s hybrid sports car driving with a Porsche 911 and sitting beside an Audi R8. While the NSX has already been seen at auto shows and even racing up Pikes Peak, this is the first sighting of these production-spec cars on the streets.

I'll be interested to hear some results from this comparison. I'm expecting the NSX to hold its own pretty well. I don't think that red will be the color I go with though. I just don't like how the red doesn't contrast with the tail lights.

I doubt we'll hear what Acura has to say about their results from benchmarking the NSX against its competition but instead we should hear that from automotive publications.

Turns out this was all part of a tour, they're using the hashtag #AcuraNSXOnTour.



Lots of coverage going around, here's what I found so far:

We're going to spot more NSX on the roads now that deliveries have started. I know the NSX is a hybrid that still requires gas but it's a bit odd to see someone fueling it up at the gas station.

Better start frequenting the local Acura dealer to see if there are any. From the time a dealer gets it to the time an owner takes delivery it will be a while, there's a lot of prep, so there's a good chance that sort of spotting will happen.

Nah, I think that guy just needed some gas and was spotted by someone while fueling up but I won't be surprised to see someone take the NSx on a road trip at some point.
