Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) was caught on set of The Avengers standing next to the new Acura NSX. The new Acura NSX concept car will not even be available to the public until late 2015, but the whole world is buzzing because the Acura NSX is now the official car of The Avengers.
This early summer blockbuster should be one of the best superhero movies from Marvel Productions, partially because of the new NSX which could very well be the Honda supercar we’ve been waiting for. However, the new NSX featured in the film may not exactly resemble the NSX that is said to be available in late 2015. Tony Stark’s NSX is a multimillion dollar, hand built, one of a kind car that was made specifically for The Avengers movie and it was actually created from a 1991 Acura NSX.
Even the interior has the old NSX tape player! Although Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) will get the honor of cruising around in the Acura NSX concept, people are asking, how fast will he actually be driving? Good question! We were shocked to learn that if the The Avengers Acura NSX goes over 10mph, the body panels will fly off!
Acura has signed a multi-picture deal with Marvel Productions, and needed a car that would live up to Tony Stark’s extravagant, thrill seeking, peddle to the metal life style. To replace Tony’s Audi R8, Acura needed to produce a fast, sexy and over the top vehicle, the Acura NSX Roadster. According to Mike Accavitti, Vice President of National Marketing Operations, “Acura is excited to continue our presence as the official vehicle of S.H.I.E.L.D. in Marvel films.”
