Acura Reveals Official Image of NSX Concept Spyder

Celebrity

A supercar built for a superhero.

Yes, we've seen this before. Several months back, some on-set picture from the upcoming film "The Avengers" ended up online. Not only did they show the film's stars, such as Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man and Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, but also what appeared to be a previously unknown Acura spyder concept. Most suspected that concept to be the much-rumored future NSX. Sure enough, we were right.

Acura revealed their NSX coupe concept at the Detroit Auto Show last January, and now they've released this image of the spyder. And to no one's surprise, it's the exact same car we saw in those online photos. Tony Stark has officially traded in his Audi R8 Spyder for the new Acura NSX Spyder concept, confirming what we've known for roughly six months. No word yet on when (or if) we'll be seeing the Spyder concept at an upcoming live show, but we think this is a very strong indicator that Acura will build a production version. In the meantime, we'll be able to be jealous of Tony Stark once again when we see him in "The Avengers", opening next month.
