It's a wide boi.

Supercars are supposed to miss the forest for the trees. These ragged-edge cars focus so intently on high-speed performance and high-cost trimmings that they're often tough to truly utilize on a daily basis, relegating them to weekend warriors at best. But not the [/roadshow/auto/2020-acura-nsx/ 2020 Acura NSX]. This Japanese scalpel is more than ready to rumble on a backroad, but it carries a softness that gives the car more than enough pliancy to make for a quality grocery-getter, albeit one that's a bit over equipped for the task.

Before I even get behind the wheel of the 2020 Acura NSX, I'm hit with that familiar kind of supercar weird-for-the-sake-of-being-weird-ness. On approach, kynghidongduong.vn the thin door handles pop out to greet me, tour phượng hoàng cổ trấn which is a fun parlor trick. Thankfully, the doors open in the normal direction, as the [/roadshow/make/acura/model/nsx/ NSX] has absolutely no problem turning heads without bringing atypical hinges and butterfly doors into the equation.

With interesting angles in every direction, from flying buttresses out back to the aggressive front bumper, the NSX is like most other supercars in that it's damn near impossible to blend in anywhere. Even beyond the show-off styling, my tester's $6,000 Valencia Red Pearl paint job isn't about to let that happen.

First impressions come quickly after sliding past the NSX's door. Despite the body's relative position to terra firma, the seating position is a little higher than I expect, giving me a greater feeling of normalcy than I encounter in, tour phượng hoàng cổ trấn say, a [/roadshow/make/mclaren/ McLaren] or a [/roadshow/make/lamborghini/ Lamborghini]. Visibility is quite good in most directions, with loads of forward sight (thanks in part to way-thin A-pillars) and superb blind-spot coverage from the mirrors that sprout from the body like antennae. The view out back is fine, considering there's an engine a few inches behind me. Be mindful of the sun's position, though: Too many direct rays from ol' Sol and the front windshield begins to resemble a cheese grater thanks to serious reflections of the massive speaker grille below. It can be really annoying, especially in spirited driving or slow-speed neighborhoods where children and squirrels are likely to be in the street.
