2018 Acura NSX Changes, Exterior

The exterior design of this car consists of low-slung dimensions, apprehensive styling, and scores of vents to give it an impressive costume for sports-car enthusiasts. Its trademark headlamps are angled inwards and towards the bottom of the broad air intakes.
The vented hood begins at a lower point and inclines back sharply. This hood intersects a steeply grated windshield and curves over the cockpit before slanting past the mid-mounted compartment for the engine.
