Glacier Climbing

Think the NSX would look pretty cool climbing a glacier. Would anyone be interested in doing something fun like this ?!

Yea...No. You only saw the fun part of his Lambo trip but you didn't see him get stuck even with spikes on his tires.

The NSX would look nice up there for a photo shoot... that's as far as I would go though

I'd like to see it happen especially with how reliable Honda's and Acura's are known to be and conditions like that should be no problem for it. Plus it will us a bit more confidence in the product, seeing it put through its paces in extreme conditions.

I think the AWD system should be able to handle it well, but I think the most we'll really see is a video of it on an ice track or something. Nothing like climbing glaciers

At this point there seems to be no telling if Acura will do it or not, they're at this point that they can use whatever creative ways they can to promote the brand with the on-going changes being made.

It's not a matter of reliability, that snow was just too deep and the car was just too heavy. The NSX is by no means a light vehicle so I doubt it'll be able to go up a glacier. What Acura can do is give the NSX a custom wrap like that and drive it around a snow track like the one in Arjeplog, Sweden.

At least when it comes to winter driving, one thing I know we'll see for sure is some winter drifting. although it won't be as fun to see as with this Regera:

I don't think anything is more enjoyable than watching an Regera in the snow... nothing at all
