For moviegoers, the Orange County Auto Show brought something particularly special. That's if you're a fan of Iron Man and Robert Downey Junior.

Ladies and gentlemen, the "Stark Industries" Acura NSX drop-top awaits.

When it originally made an appearance while filming in New York City, automotive publications stood at attention and speculated that this would be, in fact, the next-generation NSX making a star-studded, early appearance.

In reality though, it couldn't be further from the truth.

As we brought to you in April, this NSX Roadster is actually based on a 1991 NSX with over 250,000 miles on the odometer. Crazy, right?

Note how Acura strategically covered up the antiquated dash?
