DETROIT — This afternoon saw the worldwide debut of the Advanced Sports Car Concept, heir-apparent to Acura's sports icon, the NSX, at the 2007 North American International Auto Show.

Distinguished by sharp angles and futuristic sculpting, the concept features what the manufacturer calls subtle cues associated with its predecessor. LED headlights intended to evoke the first-generation NSX's pop-up headlights.

"Our intention was to design an exotic sports car that gracefully combines advanced technology and strong emotion," said Jon Ikeda, principal designer, Acura Design Center. "The technical, machined surfaces and keen-edge design are balanced with sweeping curves and dramatic lines, all of which results in the ultimate exotic sports car."
