Spy photos taken at the set of the upcoming Avengers movie is providing us with a glimpse of a future Acura sports car, driven by Robert Downey Junior who plays Iron Man, Tony Stark.

According to AutoExpress, this vehicle points the way for the future NSX successor. Honda‘s previous plans to develop a new front engine V10 supercar, the Honda HSV-010 GT, were thwarted by economic recession. Honda later salvaged the project and shifted its efforts to bring the HSV-010 to Japan’s Super GT racing series.

Undeterred, Honda president and CEO Takanobu Ito wants a production halo to boost Acura’s relevance in the industry. Rumors suggest that the NSX successor will be based on a lightweight aluminum chassis, receiving power from a V6 engine as well as an advanced hybrid drivetrain. The combustion engine will drive the rear wheels while electric motors drive the front.

Pricing for the NSX successor are expected to be along the lines of $80,000 to $100,000, placing it squarely against its fellow countryman, Nissan GT-R, as well as foreign rivals like the Porsche 911, Audi R8, Aston Martin V8 Vantage and Chevrolet Corvette.

No word on the release date, but you can count on Honda taking a number of years before making an official announcement.
