10. Acura NSX Concept

As has become the tradition, there was no shortage of big debuts at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.

Ranging from concepts so bold they border on absurdity to production cars that kept enthusiasts clicking, this is’s list of the top 10 cars unveiled during the North American International Auto Show.

The Acura NSX concept car kicks things off, but remember before you blow your stack that Honda’s luxury brand did actually show something new about the car.

While the shell stayed mostly same, there’s actually an interior to look at inside the Japanese supercar that the brand says will focus on simplicity, good outward visibility and style to enhance the driving experience. And it’s based on that interior alone (see it here) that the NSX makes out list.

Buy or sell the PR jargon as you like, but there’s no getting around the fact that Acura is at least one step closer to building the NSX.
