03/28/2012 – TORRANCE, Calif.
Announced today, Acura’s new flagship sedan will make its world debut at the New York International Auto Show. Employing an array of new Acura technologies, including the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® system, the concept vehicle will deliver an entirely new level of performance, sophistication and comfort.
Tetsuo Iwamura, president and CEO of American Honda Motor Co., will introduce the concept vehicle at a press conference held on April 4, 2012 at 1:50 PM (EST) in the Acura booth. The press conference will be webcast live on www.acuranews.com. Press materials will be posted at www.acuranews.com immediately following the press conference.
Since they’re calling it a new flagship, there is a higher chance that the RL name is being dropped (good for them). Bring back the Legend name.
Can’t wait! The new RL should be renamed as the legend but if the car is another flop it would ruin the Legend rep.. BUT! It could be good luck and fix everything!
I really hope Acura brings it this time. The RL ran me away from Acura based on the look. After all the redesigns of the RL it still looks like an high speed Honda Accord. Acura did so well with the Legend design, I reall hope they get it right with the all new 2013 flagship! Oh boy; if they do I’m headed straight to the dealership to get me one!
