In a new Acura NSX short film, dreams of becoming a race car driver start early for a young boy in his rural hometown. The visual, named “Beginnings,” was written and directed by Italian director Alessandro Pacciani and follows a child as he becomes a young adult pursuing his passion for professional racing. The Acura NSX serves as the perfect hybrid sports car for the film’s main character to use as he trains for an event, displaying his heartache and hard work towards becoming a champion race car driver. The video even accomplishes to channel the spirit and essence of Ayrton Senna, who helped develop the original NSX back in the late ’80s and is regarded as one of the greatest Formula 1 champions in racing history.

The 2017 Acura NSX boasts three electronic motors, a 3.5 L twin-turbo V6 engine, nearly 600 horsepower, and can reach speeds of 191 miles per hour. Curva red is the slick colorway of the car within the short. Acura’s supercar NSW rivals classic models like the Corvette, Porsche 911, and the Audi R8. It retails for approximately $160,000 USD.
