This concept is intended to be a "gateway" car for buyers that are interested in the NSX performance car but can’t afford it. It is targeted to young
customers that want a unique sense of style reflected on their everyday fashion appearance.
The design is inspired by the multi-faceted trend and uses a very elaborated "modern baroque-fashion" formal language, yet forming an aesthetic whole.
As Leon Paz explains "The idea was to show very aggressive styling on the body and keep it very simple on the top section with a dynamic roof line flow."
The see-through engine compartment is characterized by the Acura logo cover, along with titanium brakets and twin-turbos.
