The second-generation Acura NSX certainly no longer looks much like the first design. After all, this is what you’d normally expect as many generations have passed before the new Acura NSX was finally introduced.
But there may be a number of iconic features from the first gen that some of you might be wishing were still there. Let’s picture that for a moment. What if Honda had not replaced them? Do you think the new Acura NSX would be just like the original? Perhaps this is also what rendering artist Peisert Design had in mind when they came up with their latest project.
Obviously, Peisert Design rendered the new Acura NSX closer to the image of the first-generation model. As you can see right here, the rendering artist had almost changed the rear end entirely back to its original form. Since the new model has a curved blade air intake along the edge of the greenhouse that goes down to the beltline and extends all the way to the door panel, Peisert needed to remove most of these parts for him to achieve the old look.
As expected, Peisert did the same for the side air intakes, the iconic squared off-tail and also the car’s rear wing. Since all these awesome pieces come from the 90s, the same generation that gave birth to the first original Acura NSX model, it may also be the reason why these features deserve to be here more than anything, right?
Strangely though, Peisert Design did not modify anything at the front end. Maybe that’s because the second generation Acura NSX already looks good to begin with. It is aggressively styled up front with sharper angles to boot. We would prefer the new generation Acura’s design over the old one. In fact, the original NSX design remains extremely popular to car enthusiasts. And that’s despite the reality that it was designed during the 90s.
Interestingly, Honda wants to replace the first gen’s engine design with a new front engine. Something that comes with a powerful V10 or a V8 at the very least. But as it turns out, the second gen NSX still comes with the usual V6 engine. All the same, the new Acura NSX now comes with the new all-wheel drive powertrain and the latest 9-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. If you ask us, we think that these are probably the best things that have happened to the NSX after so many years.
