FastAndFurious We most likely won't see a safety test report until a few months after the NSX has gone on sale.

Mandrillano I did have the same thought relating that floor. That's a lot of metal. As lengthy as it's still delivering with adequate security. Would like to see how this body system deals in the protection & proper assessments.

FastAndFurious I thought the floor would be part of the frame. Guess not.

That information wasn't false, you're looking at a graphic that shows the vehicles frame, that would be why it's called the 'space frame'

Showing the floor panel here would be completely irrelevant.

St.Who I"m surprised there is no carbon fiber at all listed here though. I knew that they used less of it to cut on costs, but I thought more than I'm seeing here.

|\|SX It's going to be safe, Honda/Acura creates some of the safest products in the classes it competes in.

We have yet to see crash test videos, those should come soon.

FastAndFurious That's a lot of aluminum. As long as it's still providing you with sufficient protection. Would like to see how this body fares in the safety battering tests.
