2017 Acura NSX Shooting Brake Rendered as Beastly Winter Car

Admittedly, the 2017 Acura/Honda NSX could've done better in its first batch of tests and that's to put things lightly, with rivals such as the Audi R8 and the Porsche 911 Turbo beating it on the track, while the 2017 Nissan GT-R left it behind in a drag race. However, the super-hybrid has its fair share of assets and we're here to gift it with another one, this time in virtual form.

We're referring to the pixel rearrangement we have here, which portrays the NSX as a winter beater. The rendering comes from digital artist Rain Prisk, who has given the gas-electric supercar a thorough transformation.

The 2017 NSX became a shooting brake, gaining a set of ice and snow-friendly modes, from the wheels and tires to the body protection elements. We're not sure about the ground clearance of the machine, but this seems like an issue that an air suspension could easily solve.

As for one's winter gear, such transportation needs are catered to with the help of a roof rack. And if this seems extreme, keep in mind that we previously showed you a rendering gifting the machine with a roof box.

This is the third winter car we've brought you this week, with each of these tales coming from different corners of the automotive realm. It all started with a YouTuber demonstrating that you don't have to confine your Porsche 911 GT3 to the garage for the cold seasons, not even when you also have access to a GT3 RS.

Things escalated when our spy photographers managed to come across Lamborghini engineers testing the 2018 Huracan Superleggera. New center-lock wheels aside, all the snow found in the prototype's gaping intakes was a thrill to us.

Before we end this piece, allow us to tell you we have a feeling the stop-the-supercar-hybernation stories won't end here.
