As part of the Monterey Car Week in California, Acura is debuting a brand new sedan concept that sets the stage for the launch two Type S performance variants in the next two years after a decade-long hiatus, beginning with the second-generation TLX Type S. This or a BMW M4/Mercedes-AMG C 63/Audi RS4?
"The return of Type S is instrumental in our mission to return Acura to its performance roots. From bringing back the NSX to winning at the highest level of North American sports auto racing and ushering-in a new generation starting with the RDX, we are revitalising Acura on the foundation of our original and authentic brand values, piece by piece".
Like its parent, Honda, the Acura brand is fond of using "concept" vehicles to show what will soon follow in production. Regular flavours of the second-generation TLX are rumoured to debut next year. However, the proportions of the test mule and Type S concept are practically identical.
Broadly, the new sedan features a lower and wider stance than the original TLX, with a longer, more sporty hood.
"We've been dreaming about a new performance-focused Acura concept auto since the Precision Concept debuted", Dave Marek, Acura's Executive Creative Director, said in the model's new announcement.Читайте также: The Planet Was Hit 4.5 Billion Years Ago — Jupiter Collision
For the benefit of us Europeans, the Acura TLX represents the entry level Acura luxury sedan.
Visually, the Concept has a lot of appropriately sporty detail, with a clear influence of the NSX supercar. It even has a bit of Chevrolet Camaro in its wide hood and aggressive front fascia. Flanking either side of the grille is new jewel LED headlights that are a more radical interpretation of those found on recent Acura designs, such as the new RDX.
Besides the spoiler, forged carbon - created by bonding layers of carbon on top of one another to exceed the strength of traditional interwoven carbon - is applied to the front and rear splitters, side sills, rear decklid spoiler and multi-spoke 21-inch wheels.
Theoretically though the Type S variant should launch across Acura's product portfolio.
To scrub off speed, all corners get drilled Brembo brakes with four-piston calipers.
It seems Acura is looking to recapture the magic of the Type S designation with a new concept auto that will be debuting in the coming days during Monterey vehicle Week.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
