Official release from Acura Media Newsroom:
Developed from the production 2015 Acura TLX by HPD, the racing arm of American Honda Motor Co., Inc., the Acura TLX GT race car features HPD chassis and aerodynamic performance parts approved for Pirelli World Challenge GT-class competition. It’s powered by a direct-injected, twin-turbocharged V6 engine, developed by HPD from the normally aspirated, production TLX luxury sport sedan. It also utilizes all-wheel drive, as found in Acura”s Super-Handling All Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD™).
“In today’s recall hit world, talking about a sportscar than can play well into the six-figure odometer zone without any major technical issues sounds like a sci-fi story. Well, things like this do actually happen, it’s just that we have to look into the past, not the future.”- Andrei Tutu, autoevolution

I thought it would be fun to give the new Acura TLX a new front end, one that could give us an idea of what an aggressive Type-S variant might look like. This semi-quick render took about 4 hours, I meant to just play with the front bumper but ended up doing some last minute additions with an alternate TLX GT grille, Type-S badge, and wheels. Admittedly, the front was a bit “Audi RS” inspired. Leave me a comment below and let me know what you think.

After struggling for the first half of the 2014 Super GT season, teams running the new Honda NSX CONCEPT-GT have finally found success in Round 5 at Fuji Speedway. The No. 17 KEIHIN NSX CONCEPT-GT took pole position in qualifying, but it was the No. 18 Weider Modulo NSX CONCEPT-GT that went on to win Sunday’s GT500 race. Three NSX CONCEPT-GTs finished in the top 5, capturing the first, third, and fourth positions.
