2017 Acura NSX Engine Cover

Don't think it's been posted yet so here's a shot of the engine covered. If you find a picture of it uncovered feel free to post it here.




Thought it would be interesting to share. Also, will the glass and black cover cause the engine to overheat if it sits under the sun long enough?

Engines do not overheat from sitting in the sun, that probably happens on another planet, but not on planet Earth. Do you realize what it takes for an engine to overheat?

It certainly looks beautiful, and with a vehicle like this, that actually counts for a lot.

Track racing on a very hot and sunny day? No idea.

I think that a fun and relatively easy mod to do would be putting lighting in the engine cover. The engine cover looks so cool, so why not add some lighting to really feature that part of the car.

I'm thinking mounted to the underside of the cover so that it just makes the engine glow.

That's just going to make it look tacky, the glass cover it is good enough. Highly doubt you'll find any owners of the first generation model that did exactly this, it's just not what you do to a vehicle like this.

I suppose that you can have your opinion. If I do find it tacky I won't do it, but I'm not quite so convinced without seeing it that I won't like it.

Also, the first generation model is far different from this model. I'm not sure that saying you wouldn't do it to the old one so you can't do it to this one really is a argument that holds water with me.

I think my first mod will be REMOVING the engine cover... C'mon they build a beautiful TT V6 and then cover it with junk FFS...
