Have we ever seen the engine bay without the cover?

At this stage i'd be surprised if that actually happened, since all of the NSX's we've seen have been right from acura in their full form. Will have to wait for dealers to officiallly get these for that to happen.

We've seen the engine by itself but it's lacking in everything else like wiring.

I'm kinda surprised that they haven't just shown off the engine. Why not? Just to leave some things up to surprise?

You'd think they would have done so by now as the few NSX buyers are most likely car enthusiasts who wants to see what they're buying. Can't really make out much besides the engine cover in the middle.

If some brand that makes forced induction systems decides to get involved then we could see something coming from them, but so far there has been no sign of that.

I suspect the covers might be designed to aid air flow management for cooling devices as well as heat exchangers beyond just the gas engine itself (a big deal in this complex car for efficiently and longevity). Plus they may be aiding some sound control/management to the engine compartment?
I personally have no desire or need for hearing a lot of engine or exhaust noise when driving like some do... And am not fond of "piped in" acoustic adders ?
That said I do appreciate what the engine and exhaust sounds like from OUTSIDE the car?. We all must realize that NO car will do all things desired for all drivers, so must accept some "by design" or engineering compromises.
And for those considering adding bling lights (yuk) , I can only assume/hope that is for when parked for showing as there would probably a lot of annoying reflection issues off rear window as seen in rear view mirror when driving.

From the few reviews published, interior sound isn't something you have to worry about as the NSX is supposed to sound a lot louder outside than inside. Someone at some point will install some interior LED lights to illuminate the engine at night but I assume that there's a way to turn them off while you're driving. Sounds dangerous to have them on at night and mess with your rear view.

I agree on that last part about lighting, absolutely no need for that, surprised to even see it mentioned on this forum LOL

That's something i'd expect from the Civic crowd not NSX owners.
