Honda is testing for a long time now the NSX supercar; and even if it won’t be unveiled until 2010, Best Magazine gave us a pretty good idea of how the supercar will look like.
The NSX will be sold under the Acura badge, and will be powered by a 4.5 liter V10 engine that will deliver 550 hp. The AWD super will make the Nürburgring in just 7minutes and 30 seconds: better than the Porsche Carrera GT. The Japanese magazine expects the car to be priced between 12,500,000 and 15,000,000 yen (that’s $125.000-$150.000).

In 2007 at the Los Angeles Auto Show Acura launched the Acura Advanced Sedan Concept, a preview version of the next generation RL that will debut in mid-2010 at a price of $70,000.
With exterior design inspired by the Honda Accord, the 2010 RL will be powered by a V8 engine, to help it compete with strong rivals in the U.S., including Audi, BMW and Lexus.
Honda is currently working on a 420-horsepower 4.8-liter V8, and will employ the same cylinder deactivation technology we see on the current Japan-spec Inspire V6, thus generating class-leading fuel economy figures.
Acura will introduce the new i-DTEC clean diesel engine to the North American market in 2009. The i-DTEC engine reduces noxious exhaust emissions while boosting power and fuel efficiency. A combination of optimized combustion chamber design and reduced injection time results in a clean, quiet engine that delivers excellent performance for an enjoyable driving experience.
Honda announced that the next-generation Acura NSX will be unveiled later than initially expected. Initially the NSX was supposed to be launched in 2008-2009, but now the company says it will come in 2010.
