The LFA and "new NSX" are much more similar with the higher center console and a gentler curvature.

Also, another big difference with the Carrera GT is that the space underneath the center console is actually just empty space - so there's just this big gaping hole underneath. Just seemed kinda tacky to me.
Civic lovers comes on a Lexus forum to tell us we give Lexus credit for stuff. You can't make this up. The NSX interior is LFA inspired period, not CGT, anyone that has sat in both knows the CGT and LFA interior are nothing alike. They have a hard time giving Lexus credit for anything.

The LFA interior is mind-blowing so it was smart to use it as a bench-mark. The NSX concept interior looks good in those pics.

I have to admit the side angle looks good to me and its growing on me.

The only thing I like about the LFA is the interior so kudos to Acura for copying it and selling the car for 1/3 the price.

Cant wait to see this in person, for the lexus fan boys and the non fan boys, give credit where credit is due. The LFA clearly inspired ACURA and the interior of the new NSX, however the LFA definitely was not the first car to display that "style" of interior. The sloped center. The Bugatti Veyron also has a sloped center. And most clearly, the OLD NSX already had a sloped interior.

They received 25 deposits and OMG it is in such HUGE demand, people can't wait to buy one!!

I might buy one when the value tank 60% in the first few years sitting on the lot noone wants it, it would be a nice mid engine Accord Prius for me. I just hope the AC is cold.

What are you talking about BNR?
25 is a huge demand........................................................ for vaporware so far

A rumor/unconfirmed price tag (mentioned on nsxprime) was set at $170k, so that number will drop back down

Not a peep yet about that factory in Ohio

So, after reading all these pages, I'm still not sure if it's still a concept, or an actual production car?

$170k?............must be Japanese Yen. It will be $100k USD at best, looks like the drivetrain will be nothing exotic, just be the Hybrid SH-AWD from the RLX/TL turn up a tad. That would drop the cost considerably as those are high volume models.

So $100k USD MSRP and dealers will be selling below cost due to zero demand.

I don't think anyone cares anymore. It comes out when it comes out. It is already outdated, so there is really nothing new to check out even if it is at the dealer now.
