    I don't know what they were thinking when they designed the front of this thing. Maybe someone was heavily influenced by the movie "Cars". All it needs is two eye balls in the windshield.

    I agree, it looks like someone is trying way to hard to look modern. There isn't a pleasing line on it.:puke:

    Ugly alright! One other thing I noticed that I’ve been seeing a lot of. What’s with the rear wheels being right at the ass end of the car? Imagine the damage to the drive train in a rear end accident. Not to mention the loss of 'crunch factor' (my term) before the offending vehicle enters the passanger compartment.

    Perhaps they wanted to make a car that appeals to women or to rich guys who aren't well endowed by Nature and are trying to compensate.... it has a phallic look to it....

    I either have a dirty mind or else I'm starting to sound like a psych major....

    Acura has most likely done a lot of rearend crash test and found the data to be acceptable with regards to risk. Thus selling models would cover any losses in a rearend crash, and the ability to walk away is another factor. Most cars now are made on the crumble zone, so this maybe similar. Another thing is balance of the chassis/frame in relation to the rear tires. This would improve handling and over steer. And most importantly it is a concept car so it may not ever make it in the world

    wiper fluid thingy perhaps? but then I don't see wipers either. could it be a car with the single wiper like the little rice rockets do, which looks stupid as well?

    Really, it looks like a pathetic attempt at a mix of the Pontiac Crossfire and the Cadillac SLR Roadster (or CTS as well, since they are fairly similar).

    -insert loud obnoxious buzzer sound- Try again Acura.
