Acura Type S Concept Shows Itself Ahead of Monterey Launch

After a small teaser, Acura reveals the Type S Concept before its public debut later this week during the Monterey Car Week.

The Type S variants are back after 10 years of hiatus. Acura just unveiled their new Type S Concept before it’s official world debut on Friday.

The Concept represents “a fundamental step toward fulfilling Acura’s return to Precision Crafted Performance” says the brand. The philosophy that was brought back with the second generation of the NSX.

The second-generation TLX Type S will be heavily influenced by this Acura Type S Concept. It also reveals new elements in Acura’s design, in particular, the next-gen’s four-lamp Jewel Eye LED headlights, a new front grille and daytime running lights and taillights inspired by the Acura ARX-05 Daytona Prototype race car.

“The return of Type S is instrumental in our mission to return Acura to its performance roots,” said Jon Ikeda, Vice President and Acura Brand Officer. “From bringing back the NSX to winning at the highest level of North American sports car racing and ushering-in a new generation starting with the RDX, we are revitalizing Acura on the foundation of our original and authentic brand values, piece by piece.”

The exterior also features front and rear splitters, side sills and rear spoiler in forged carbon as well as 21-inch wheels wrapped all around on 285-wide tires. The Acura Type S Concept will have no problem in stopping with its drilled Brembo brakes with four-piston calipers.

As for the colour, the bespoke “Double Apex Blue Pearl” paint is a nod to previous Type S models, like the RSX and the 2007-2008 TL Type S.
