Next-gen NSX(?) Test Mule Spied in Germany
 Date: May 21, 2007 22:01
 Submitted by:  fjdude
 Source: The Torque Report (www.torquereport.com)
 Credibility Rating: N/A


A test mule that looks like the lovespawn of an S2000 and Buick Reatta has been snapped by spy photographers near the Nurburgring in Germany. There's speculation that Honda is using it for drivetrain and chassis development for the next generation NSX.

Spyshots available at the following links:
http://www.thetorquereport.com/2007/05/2010_acura_nsx_caught_testing.html
http://www.leftlanenews.com/acura-nsx-future.html
http://www.motortrend.com/future/spied_vehicles/112_news070622_acura_nsx_prototype

UPDATE: According to several of our resourceful readers who ran DVLA enquiries on the two plate numbers worn by the test mules, there are two engines being tested. One of them (plate number OU07 EFX) is fitted with a 5.0L petrol motor while the other (plate number OU07 EFW) uses a 2.2L diesel motor. The online search facility is located at http://www.vehiclelicence.gov.uk/ (select "Vehicle Enquiry" on the left hand menu list).

UPDATE 2: Video Now Available!
Edmunds.com has now posted video footage. This thing is looking pretty fast and that V10 sounds pretty sweet.
