The Avengers Acura NSX Roadster is really a 1991 Acura NSX [Video]

The guys over at Inside Line got to test drive The Avengers Acura NSX Roadster that stars in the movie.

When we reported last week that Acura is the automotive sponsor for Marvel Studio's upcoming movie The Avengers, and created a one-off convertible version of its 2015 NSX sports car for the upcoming movie, we were correct. But when we told you the NSX Roadster shares much in common with the NSX hybrid coupe concept that was first revealed at the Detroit motor show, we have to make a revision to the story.

When Acura released an image of the new roadster from the movie identifying it only as "an Acura convertible sports car", they were being completely honest. And the car is a special one-off Acura NSX Roadster created specifically for Tony Stark to replace his Audi R8. But the boys over at Inside Line got to test drive The Avengers movie car and were a bit surprised at what lies underneath the beautiful roadster body.

When the car was delivered to them in the Mojave Desert in a plain white unmarked semi, they were excited to get to drive the one-of-a-kind car. As the car was rolled down the ramp, they had to stop and stare at what they describe as a “gorgeous, devastatingly, truly gorgeous car.”
