Do you guys think the NSX GT3 will race with all that carbon fiber exposed or will they wrap it? I think they'll race with the carbon fiber on show, why would they release these pictures if they weren't?

I'm almost positive it'll be wrapped. They would have to get all the sponsors on there, all the stickers and graphics. I highly doubt they would leave it carbon exposed.. as much as I would love to see it

Think Acura will ever release a full carbon fiber NSX? Doesn't meed the large rear wing and racing features, just some nice lightweight carbon fiber in a special edition of some kind of a really expensive exterior package.

I think it's very possible. Considering we're seeing a few exotics coming in full exposed carbon fiber packages now a days ? For example the McLaren 675LT

Acura might 'test the waters' with a carbon fiber trim similar to what Lexus did to the RC. At least then they can address some needs and probe the need for something even better. PLUS it's a great way for owners of the regular NSX to get some carbon fiber parts without depending on aftermarket.

That's true... offering them as individual parts would be pretty cool too. The parts will probably be pretty pricey though compared to the aftermarket

Is this NSX order form is anything to go by, people do want more carbon fiber with their sports cars.



Maybe replace the front bumper arrow pieces with carbon fiber too.

People definitely do, but the manufacturers won't be providing all of it. Unfortunately at this point we're going to have to wait for the aftermarket to step in. Now it's more a matter of who

The problem with you saying that is it's just ONE example, you need a decent sample size to even begin suggesting what people will want.

Wait a few months, 6 months, or a year, then you'll see what people want.
