When the 2015 Hot Wheels lineup was announced, one new model stood out as our most anticipated, and we know lot of you agreed with us. Finally, a proper Acura NSX, newly dubbed a 25-year-old Nostalgic, was coming to Hot Wheels.
Well, we now have the exclusive first images:
This appears to be an NSX Type R, which didn’t exist in 1990. And the flares seem to be a little large, as does the rear wheel. No up-sloped chin, but it does appear the exaggerated racing themes have struck the NSX.
So yeah, another track car, and considering we already have a track-themed NSX in the line-up, this one is a bit of a bummer. Definitely more “stock”, but not as much as we thought. It is ultimately a kids toy, but when you see “1990 Acura NSX”, you have to think they had collectors in mind when it was designed. Oh well.
There are some things to like. At certain angles that fantastic slender silhouette of the NSX comes through, and we hope once we have it in hand we will like it a lot more. One way or the other, we are still looking forward to this one. Right now, we are a little underwhelmed.
