NSX pic=Accord coupe?? [View News Item]    (Score: 1, Normal) 09-14-2006 08:47

check it out...seriously...the headlights are very similar. Sizewise it could be right, also. It sorta looks like they just strapped an A badge on the front, anyhow.

Would it be difficult to sort of re-badge the new Accord coupe and stick a V10 and SH-AWD in it, and then call it an Aston killer?

Yes.

Firstly, the proportions would be completely wron.

Secondly, transverse-packaging a V10 ahead of the axle line would be a handling disaster.

The idea of a MF RWD layout for a big coupe & next Leg End makes far more sense.
