Acura Commercial - "Let The Race Begin"

Official release from Acura Media Newsroom:

Acura to Debut New “Let The Race Begin” Commercial This Weekend During Prime-Time Television

New advertisement showcases the all-new Acura TLX Prototype sports sedan, the RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD™ flagship sedan and the NSX Concept supercar, bringing together three championship performers for the first time in Acura national advertising

02/07/2014 – TORRANCE, Calif.

Acura will debut a futuristic and emotional new television commercial in the top 14 U.S. media markets during prime time network sports programming this weekend, challenging drivers to seek out a new luxury-performance experience.

Set against the backdrop of an otherworldly racetrack, the new Acura TV commercial opens with four robotic horses, representing traditional approaches to luxury performance, emerging from the starting gate and aggressively jostling for position. Spectators watch from the grandstand in a euphoric state, among them a more enlightened and informed individual who seems to know that something unexpected is about to happen. At that moment, an elegant and powerful dark horse emerges from the pack and transforms into the all-new 2014 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD™, which is then joined by the 2015 TLX Prototype and the NSX Concept as all three vehicles surge forward. An on-screen graphic declares “Let the race begin.”

Acura NSX Prototype

The battle for the first Acura NSX continues in the latest episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. A cleverly placed Acura NSX Prototype ignites a short skit between Jerry and special guest Jay Leno as they pull up for coffee in a 1949 Porsche 356/2.

The last time we saw Seinfeld and Leno compete for the first NSX was in Acura’s Super Bowl XLVI Commercial.

2015 Acura NSX Gets Twin-Turbo Longitudinal Engine

Posted by   on November 19th, 2013 No comments

2015 Acura NSX Drivetrain - Courtesy Motor Trend

From a Honda event in Japan a few days ahead of the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, Acura has revealed significant details about the upcoming NSX.

Unveiling a new 90-degree V-6 engine, Acura has confirmed it will be twin-turbocharged, which combined with the three electric motors should boost numbers to well over 500 horsepower. Sources have speculated the V-6 will have a displacement of 3.5 or 3.7-liters.

The other big news item is that Acura has made the switch to a longitudinal engine layout, which deviates from their original transverse layout design also used in the first-generation NSX. Even with the change, Acura maintains it is still on track for a 2015 launch date.
