    I’m a bit surprised that they were able to get their hands on a 2011 model since Acura hasn’t released any details yet. At first I thought it may have been a typo or mistake but they label it a 2011 on more than one occasion. Looking forward to watching it this afternoon.

    They got some great angles and footage of the TL. It looked good in every shot. It was awsome seeing the black and white TLs just cruising on the roads and ripping it up on the track.

    Great video, thanks for the share. The front end of the car might be an acquired taste, but I like it, it gives the car a distinctive look that no one can mistake for anything else. For me Audi’s “gaping maw” is worse than Acura’s “beak”.
