Trends come and go. Some come around full circle sooner than expected. Cause some styling is really timeless. And the same holds true for certain models of auto styling where they were really so far advanced they remained current for over a decade. The same body style (with some modern twists) could drop tomorrow and buyers would still line up to order one. And there is no better example than the Acura NSX.
The owner Ron Warnick, turned to Spade Creations in Cinncinnatti to hit the computer and design something that resembled nothing of the original. The most outstanding feature is the sweeping arc dash panel housing several gauges and a fully functional tablet PC in the center. This color matched panel houses several Defi BF gauges including: oil pressure, fuel pressure, boost and water temp. The entire dash has been recreated out of fibreglass as are the door skins.
The C30A engine was about to get a massaging from the guys over at Science of Speed in Tempe, AZ. They bolted up a CompTech high boost supercharger and a CompTech high flow intake for the force fed air. All of the exhaust is funnelled out the back through TaiTec GT headers, CompTech high-flow cats and JGTC exhaust. Management was delegated to the AEM EMS standalone and after some time on the rollers threw down 360whp.

The wider fenders meant more offset and more lip when he went shopping for Volk Racing GT-Cs. He settled on 18x8 in the front with 19x10.5 in the back, wearing Bridgestone Potenza S03s in 255/35R18 and 285/30R19.
The lunacy spread to the trunk area where photos just don’t capture what is going on there. Several carbon fiber panels are integrated with painted inserts and color-matched meshed curved into the center of the trunk. Lurking beneath all that flare are two serious subs the JL Audio 8W3V2 8-inch brutes.
Ron had to make the most of the limited trunk space the NSX has, due to it having a mid-engine configuration, but the end result is nothing short of outstanding.
