First Reaction: "Amazing" Says Ludacris on 2016 Acura NSX

At a VIP reveal of the 2016 Acura NSX, Acura flew in special guest, hip hop star, and actor Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, whom you may know from The Fast and the Furious franchise of movies. Bridges is a friend of the brand and a legitimate Acura enthusiast. In his remarks before and during the dinner event, he spoke fondly of his 1993 Acura Legend sedan, which has 230,000 miles, and was recently involved in an accident. The insurance company of the party that hit him wanted to write it off as a total loss. Bridges wasn’t having that, and looked around for a body shop that could restore it, even though it meant paying out of pocket. Clearly Ludacris is a fan, so we asked him for his thoughts on the NSX the minute the sheet dropped.

CLB: "I’m a loss for words, I mean I don’t know what to say -- it’s amazing. It’s almost like a hybrid between all of the great supercars, put together in one -- that’s how I feel about it. As [exterior designer Michelle Christensen] continued to explain, the aerodynamics, the design, the body, it’s one thing to look at it, it’s another thing to hear. It’s the future, man. This is the future. You see so many different car companies post pictures of what the car is supposed to look like, all of the prototypes and all that. This is actually here, you know what I mean, this is something that you see, that is supposed to be coming, but it’s here and available to the world. So I applaud Acura for having this here. Of course the next thing is just about driving it. But in terms of how it looks it’s amazing. Like I said, it’s like a hybrid of all your favorite supercars, yet still Acura still doing what they do best and being ahead of the game.
