Does anyone know if the Spoon NSX is based off of a brand new or used NSX?

I'm guessing it'll be a used NSX because where would they get new ones from?

Seems like the ones shipped from Japan are new. Wonder how the Vin reads and will they show up on Acura monthly sales report as 2009's? Will they even show up?

These units would have no way of showing up on Acura sales numbers as they have already been "sold" to Spoon. Spoon is simply reselling them.

Exactly... the VIN's just need to be accepted by the DMV.

So they held them till the warranty ran out??

Acura Factory Warranty is 4 years 50k Limited Comp. AKA--Bumper to bumper. 2005 Acuras came out in Fall of 2004....Fall of 2008......BINGO! 4 years!

Was this something Spoon had to agree with Acura on?? Pretend I'm clueless because I am? You would think anything Spoon did with an Acura and put it in the public eye Acura would only grow in demand. I bet every car will be sold with in 2 months if not already sold.

Hmmm, I know that, but if it comes here will it have an "H" on the hood or an "A"? Thats what I'm wondering? I replaced all my Acura emblems with "H" and Honda on my 91 Intagra and when I took it to get inspected they gave me a hard time. I had to to them I modified the car to look like a Japanese Intagra. He looked at me like I was nuts. He finely let me through.
