Quick Tease: 2016 Acura NSX at Detroit Auto Show
My, oh my, it’s been a star-studded day out here in Motor City. I’ll need a little time to wrap my mind around all 154 pictures that I took today during my first day at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), but I would be selfish if I kept them all to myself any longer than I already have. Specifically, I want to share with you just a few images of the newly-revealed Acura NSX.
Acura’s “halo” supercar debuted today after a 3-year development process that started when the concept model first saw the public eye in 2012. When the twin-turbo V6 rolled out onto the show floor today in front of hundreds of journalists, it left most of us stunned. And when they revved the car’s engine, it sent shivers down my spine. This was the performance car so many of us have been waiting for. I’ll share my experience at NAIAS in greater detail soon, but here are a few teasers.
Early arrival for a second-row seat for the 11:50 a.m. press conference. With me in attendance were none other than Sofyan Bey, Editor-in-Chief for Redline Reviews, and Hondapro Jason. Like I said, I was surrounded by celebrities today.
This gorgeous car made its entrance amid music that had our hearts pumping.

Vantage point from my seat. Does that guy at left look familiar to anyone?
He should. That’s Jerry Seinfeld! How’s this for a #seinfeldselfie?
And the crowd goes wild!
Finally was able to squeeze my way in for a quick pic!
And here’s one without me blocking the nice view!
Full 35-minute press conference on Acura’s YouTube channel. Watch for me in the background at about 26:20. Haha.
Much, much more to come in the days ahead as I get my act together and start posting. I’m just having too much fun!
Adios from Detroit.
