Acura’s Advanced Sports Car Concept was revealed at the 2007 North American International Auto Show, hinting at what the legendary NSX’s successor will look like. While not quite as sexy as the HSC Concept originally shown as the NSX replacement, the prototype shows us the next step in exotic sports car styling. Take a look below to see comparison pictures.
The new Acura concept is expected to have a powerful front-mounted V-10 engine, and use a brand new, high-performance rear-wheel drive version of Acura’s exclusive Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). The LED headlights are styled to mimic the NSX’s original pop-up headlight design (while closed, of course.)
Take a look at the comparison pictures of the new Advanced Sports Car Concept and the previous HSC Concept:

The pictures are as close as I could get to each other, so sorry about the differences. The rear of the new concept is much better looking than the HSC Concept, but they lost a lot of the sleek, sexy lines and went with the high-tech look instead. Not that it’s a bad thing though, it’s all about personal taste. I personally like the old concept better, but maybe that will change when I see it in person at the Chicago Auto Show next month. What do you think about the new concept compared to the old one?
