Acura (Honda) puts a concept car in the Avengers movie

New Acura supercar to debut soon ?
Find out by reading the rest of this post, after the jump...

The biggest talk around town, Honda enthusiast town that is, is the emergence of an unusual Acura sports-car in the shooting set of the forthcoming Avengers movie. 'Tony Stark' (i.e. Robert Downey Jr) arrived at the set in what seems to be a brand new, as yet unseen & unheard of super-car bearing the Acura nameplate. Thus there are now talks about how Tony Stark will swap his Audi R8 for an Acura supercar in the Avengers movie. Naturally too, the appearance of this car has sparked wild speculation about whether it is actually a brand new supercar that Acura will be launching for sale very soon. For us in Asia however, do bear in mind that in this case, Acura means for the U.S. market only.

However it seems the car is just a concept after all. The superherohype website carried a clarification from Acura (of U.S.A.) spokesman Gary Robinson who was quoted as saying:

As you may know, Acura has been in the Marvel Comics Universe films as the official car of their fictional law enforcement agency called S.H.I.E.L.D. That relationship continues for The Avengers.

The open-top sports car that was photographed yesterday is a one-off, fictional car that was made just for the movie and will not be produced.

That said, as you may also know, our CEO has said publicly that we are studying the development of a new sportscar, but we can't say any more about it at this time.

So a new Honda or Acura sportscar will definitely come but apparently, according to Acura of the U.S.A., this one is not it. Nevertheless, with the recent developments, the appearance of this concept car is still a very welcome excitement to Honda fans.
