Red, white, and blue versions of the handcrafted TLX will be offered
Each of 300 handcrafted by Acura’s NSX techs at Performance Manufacturing Center
If you absolutely must have a hand-built copy of the Acura TLX, you had best get ready. Reservations for the 2023 Acura TLX Type S PMC Edition open tomorrow morning Pacifica Time.
Just 300 copies of the TLX PMC Edition will be built for the U.S. market. That’s the handcrafted version of the car put together at Acura’s Performance Manufacturing Center by the same technicians who are normally bolting together the Acura NSX.
100 will be built in each of three colours. Curva Red, 130R White, and Long Beach Blue. It’s reservations for the red cars that open tomorrow. White drops November 9, and blue December 9th.
Apart from the hand construction, PMC details include Berlina Black paint for the roof, antenna, and doors, as well as the quad tailpipes. Inside, the PMC Edition cars have carbon fibre trim, illuminated side sills, and premium floor mats. Red cars get a blakc interior with red stitches, white cars get a red cabin, and blue cars wear an orchid (beige) interior with blue stitches.
Acura hasn’t released pricing, and won’t even when you place your reservation. All the company has said is that the bill is expected to be “in the low-to-mid $60K range.” A standard TLX Type S in white, red, or blue, is $55,000.
Part of the PMC process includes a dyno check of each car, paint inspection, and a rough road simulation. The cars will also get a special car cover for transport and will arrive to your Acura dealer in an enclosed single-vehicle carrier. 10 am Pacific is the time you should mark on your calendar.
