The coolest rides have made their way to the big screen and now it is the NSX Roadster of Acura set to appear in the upcoming The Avengers movie. The hybrid roadster was spotted last year during the filming of the Avengers but Acura recently shared that the NSX Roadster will be the ride of Tony Stark portrayed by Robert Downey Jr. in The Avengers film.
The Acura NSX Roadster is in every angle and every inch perfect for Iron Man, the alter ego of the character Tony Stark. The design lines of the car are perfect for the adventurous and powerful suit of the Iron Man who is among The Avengers.
Acura does not have any clear plans of producing the NSX Roadster bu the NSX Coupe will be rolled out by 2015. The movie though might be used by the car manufacturer to gauge the pulse of the market if the roadster should hit the production line.
Like the hard topped sibling, the NSX roadster will feature the Sport Hybrid Super Handling AWD system which combines the powerful V6 running on gasoline and 3 electric motors. The setup guarantees that the Acura NSX hybrid will be among the greenest sports cars in history.
The NSX also has a pure electric mode with the gasoline engine kicking in when more power is required.
The NSX hybrid Roadster is only one of the Acuras that will appear in the movie as part of the SHIELD organization. The other Acura models include the Acura RDX, TL, ZDX, and MDX.
The Avengers will hit the movie theaters on May 4 but more than a hundred dealers of Acura will host pre-screenings to celebrate the brand’s involvement in the movie.
