It seems regardless of their performance capability, many manufacturers are keen on showing off their latest prototypes at the Nurburgring - as Honda has done here with a crossover destined for the Acura brand.
Established as a direct competitor to the BMW X6 in the US, little is known about the unnamed crossover at this point, with Honda obviously keen to keep it under wraps for now.
The car is likely to boast similar dimensions to its German counterpart as well as Nissan's Infiniti FX35.
Little can be inferred about its styling due to the heavy camouflage, however its low roofline and large wheels suggest its design influences are more sporty rather than rugged.
Educated speculation at this point suggests this new model will likely make its public debut in early 2010.
