“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.

Acura Launches All-New 2015 TLX Performance Luxury Sedan with Biggest Marketing Campaign in Brand History
- Acura TLX delivers “It’s that kind of thrill” in 360-degree campaign
- “My Way” anthem spot captures passion of U.S. team of engineers and designers who developed the TLX
- Bite-sized and clever creative deployed across multiple platforms for sustained launch effort through fall
Acura is launching the all-new 2015 TLX performance luxury sedan with the biggest marketing campaign in the brand’s history. The TLX, which combines sports-sedan dynamic proportion, premium luxury refinement and super-handling performance, is the star of a 360-degree marketing campaign under the theme “It’s that kind of thrill.”
The Legend, sold as Acura’s flagship model from 1986 through 1995, offered luxurious appointments as well as a sense of style that has endured the test of time. In its day, Legend was the best-selling import luxury car in America. The Legend propelled Acura to become an industry frontrunner and it set a benchmark by which other brands were measured. Today, nearly two decades later, the Legends live on with a strong enthusiast following. In late July 2014, a group of Legend owners congregated in southern California to participate in the 10th annual National Acura Legend Meet (NALM). A few of these die-hard Legend fans had driven from as far away as Florida to be a part of the festivities.
