Official release from Acura Media Newsroom:
04/16/2014 – NEW YORK, N.Y.
- Two new, high-performance engines backed by new 8- and 9-speed transmissions
- Most advanced dynamic package ever offered by Acura
- Sophisticated design, premium refinement and extensive luxury appointments
Acura today unveiled the all-new 2015 TLX performance-luxury sedan at the 2014 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS). Developed under the theme of Red Carpet Athlete, the all-new TLX is designed to deliver a unique and compelling blend of sports-sedan athleticism and premium luxury refinement.
“Harnessing the exhilarating power of new engines, new highly-efficient transmissions and next-generation dynamics technology – blended perfectly with impeccable style and luxury – the TLX will deliver a thrill like no other,” said Mike Accavitti, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Acura. “Both the considerable performance capabilities of the TLX and the serious energy and resources brought to the brand from the newly dedicated Acura team herald the start of a new era for Acura.”
A few months ago automotive photographer Cullen Cheung brought two of Acura’s most iconic sports cars together for this gorgeous night photo shoot. Being called a “baby” version of another car usually wouldn’t be something to be proud of, unless of course you’re referring to the NSX.

The “photo mode” first debuted in Gran Turismo 4 allowing players to take a break from the driving and become a virtual automotive photographer. It gave players a chance to shoot their dream cars in iconic locations with complete creative control over the camera.
Along with last year’s release of Gran Turismo 6 came the opportunity to not only drive, but to photograph the many angles of the NSX Concept. A quick search for the NSX Concept on Flickr resulted in some pretty spectacular user uploads from the game. Check out a few of my favorites in the gallery below.
You might know Tyson Hugie for his +500,000 mile Acura Legend, but that’s not the only Acura he owns, not by a long shot. Tyson has actually owned several Acura Legends over the years, along with an Acura NSX and an ILX. His current Acura collection consists of a 1994 Legend coupe, a 1994 Legend sedan, a 1992 NSX, and a 2013 ILX.
The photo above was set up for a story on Tyson that will be featured in a Japanese automotive lifestyle magazine called Kurumag. Check out Tyson’s full post at drivetofive.wordpress.com.
