I was relieved they decidee it should be an acura. Giving its probable price i think it would sell more.

M! M!
i feel sorry for acura to spend all that money on product placement and they cannot sell one NSX roadster until whenever. (same for the BMW i8 in MI:whatever) yes, it's going to be a very cool car for the kids to drool about and when they grow up they want an acura (at least that's what they want). back at the times with the Audi TT (in MI:whatever) and R8 in Ironman, at least someone can walk into the dealership and buy one.

Audi did go through it as well at i-robot movie with R8 silhouette futuristic supercar and it came to production line with R8, BMW i8 would eventually sold by next year and name for whatever they want. However for Acura, I have never had thought that RDX and TL will be for military vehicles and then it doesn't lure me to think so. I much prefer to see a G-class and S-class for military vehicles or Touraeq and Phaeton :)

I agree, I dont get all the fuzz about this car, I think it is ugly, the seats look cheap and the rims look like the SLS ones.
