the rendering is not cookie cutter but it doesn't look nice either. I know some people like it but I personally hate those fender flare rivets. Takes away from the clean lines of the NSX.

The overall idea of Liberty Walk kits is great, it's just in how the kit is designed and fitted to the vehicle, it has to complement the original design, not take away from it, and that is what has been done here. No one would drop $15k on just the kit alone to have that look.

LB done right:

Yes I agree that it should compliment the car and not take it away from the design itself.

Now the picture above is a clean LB add on!

I know this is the old NSX, but what about the rocket bunny kit:

I always hated that kit for the NSX, what a way to ruin a classic.

My favorite is the Sorcery Widebody kit, and its one may enthusiasts of the older gen NSX can agree on:

I like how they kept the folding headlights in the second one but not a fan of stance wheels.

Same here, if it was up to me I would never get rid of the folding headlamps, it's a classic look and one that is sort of unique to the 90's. Always liked the hidden look and although we don't have folding setups now, I think down the road we'll see hidden headlight setups like what some current concepts have. Can't be that hard to integrate it.

But getting back on topic, this is how the last NSX Type R did going up against the current generation of GT-R, quite impressive. This time around the show down will be interested, power is improved, up GT-R and Ferrari 458 levels

Great find. The NSX seemed to have a substantial lead right from the start. Maybe the same could be repeated with the new hybrid motors to get the body up to speed faster.

That might be due to it being lighter than the GT-R, GT-R is a pig, and that's one big reason for liking the NSX , it's light, agile and in doing that offer a level of performance that cannot be had with the GT-R. But that's not to say the GT-R is bad, it just offers a different level of fun, what's better just depends on you as an individual.

Yeah I agree with you guys. It's funny how my buddy calls the R35 the preggo version of the skylines/godzillas.

NSX is a much preferred design for me, as it's so sleek in design.
I do hope they render something up with the folding headlights in the future :P bring back that classic look!

Both cars beautiful. Prefer the NSX. Go to quite a few car events/meets. Don't see too many NSX's, but catch lots of GTR's at the shows and on the streets.
