Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) was spied driving around in the hot-looking Acura for several scenes during the shooting of the Avengers. It became clear from Auto Blog that the vehicle was produced specially for the Avengers film. Looks like the legendary NSX supercar is back. While Acura is Honda's US-only luxury brand, the model's appearance is rather important for fans waiting to see Honda come back to the supercar arena.
It was stated by Honda earlier that the automaker wanted to create a supercar which breaks the mould along with creating new technological package. The new NSX will use the 2001 Honda Dual Note concept's all-wheel-drive hybrid drivetrain. The vehicle will hide a VTEC V6 3.5-3.7 litre engine under the hood, driving the rear wheels and an electric hub motor in each of the front wheels.
Boasting the impressive torque, it could really be the supercar so much expected by Honda fans. The car will go on sale by 2014. As for Honda, its officials keep on denying that Tony Stark's vehicle is the new NSX's representative.
