Spied: 2018 Acura TLX



The 2018 Acura TLX has been spied once again, this time without any sort of camouflage. Captured by a photographer from Spiedbilde, the photos reveal three variants of the MMC TLX which were out on a photo/video shoot in Long Beach, California.

As expected, the 2018 TLX gets a refreshed front with Acura’s signature diamond pentagon grille, and brings back exposed exhausts in the rear. There also appears to be a new sport model(Type-S?) that adds some serious styling upgrades – check out the exhaust tips and the rear diffuser on that one. If we had to guess what the badges on that model are, one looks like an A-Spec badge, and the other is an SH-AWD badge.

At this point there’s only speculation about the added performance, but we hope it’s significant enough to match the looks.

We hear the 2018 TLX will likely debut at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show in February, and will go on sale later this year.

Acura NSX GT3s Qualify 7th and 9th for Rolex 24



Official release from Acura Media Newsroom:

Jan 26, 2017

Acura Motorsports Report – Rolex 24

IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship 24-hour endurance race
Daytona International Speedway (3.56-mile road course) Daytona Beach, FL
Weather: Mostly sunny, windy, mild, 78 degrees F

    Acura NSX GT3s qualify seventh and ninth in competitive 27-car GTD field
    Acura effort heads all new GTD manufacturer entries
    Saturday’s Rolex 24 opens the 2017 WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The Michael Shank Racing effort, led by drivers Andy Lally and Jeff Segal, posted top-10 runs in their Acura NSX GT3s during qualifying Thursday at Daytona International Speedway for this weekend’s Rolex 24, the opening round in the 2017 WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

Lally will start seventh in the competitive GTD field at this year’s Rolex 24, sharing his #93 NSX GT3 with co-drivers Katherine Legge, Graham Rahal and Mark Wilkins.  Fellow veteran GT racer Segal will start his #86 NSX GT3 just behind his teammate, ninth in the two-by-two grid formation, while sharing driving duties during the 24-hour contest with Oswaldo “Ozz” Negri, Jr., Ryan-Hunter-Reay and Tom Dyer.

The Acura NSX GT3s will compete in the GTD class of the sports car racing championship, campaigning against premium automotive brands including Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. In all, there are 27 cars entered in the GTD field at Daytona, the largest of the four classes competing in the 24-hour endurance contest.

Developed from the production Acura NSX, the NSX GT3 utilizes the production NSX’s ultra-rigid and lightweight multi-material body with aluminum-intensive space frame, which is produced at the Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio, exclusive worldwide manufacturing facility for the NSX. The 3.5-liter racing engine uses the same design specifications as the production Acura NSX, including the block, heads, valve train, crankshaft, pistons and dry-sump lubrication system. A six-speed, sequential-shift racing gearbox delivers power to the rear wheels.

The Acura NSX GT3 adds to a rich legacy of Acura sports car racing championships, including the 1991, 1992 and 1993 IMSA Camel Lights manufacturer and driver championships, and the 2009 American Le Mans Series manufacturer, driver and team championships in both the LMP1 and LMP2 classes.

Video recaps from this weekend’s Acura WeatherTech SportsCar Championship activities at Daytona are being posted on the “Honda Racing/HPD” YouTube channel. Produced by the Carolinas Production Group, the video packages can be found in the 2017 HPD Trackside Video Playlist at: https://www.youtube.com/HondaRacingHPDTV.

Mike Shank (owner, Michael Shank Racing) on Rolex 24 qualifying: “I’m pleased with the qualifying session and that we were able to put both Acura NSX GT3s in the top-10. We had a tough morning with some little gremlins that we had to deal with but everyone on this team just kept working and kept digging. Andy [Lally] and Jeff [Segal] both did great laps. This is our first time at the Rolex 24 with these cars and we have a good double top-10 to start out with. Now we’ll make racecars out of them tonight.”

Rendered: Updated Acura Precision Concept


Revealed last year at the 2016 North American International Auto Show, the Acura Precision Concept was a preview of what’s to come for Acura exterior styling.

We’ve since seen the releases of the new CDX and the refreshed MDX, both sporting the new diamond pentagon grille that debuted on the Acura Precision Concept. Based on those two designs, we decided to give the Acura Precision Concept a facelift that would reflect an updated, more production-ready look.

Here’s what we came up with:

Top-Five Finish for Acura NSX GT3 at Daytona Debut


Official release from Acura Media Newsroom:

Jan 29, 2017

Acura Motorsports Race Report – Rolex 24

IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship 24-hour endurance race
Daytona International Speedway (3.56-mile road course) Daytona Beach, FL
Weather: Rain, cool, 45-55 degrees F

    Michael Shank Racing effort dominates nighttime hours of the Rolex 24
    Acura NSX GT3s lead 27 percent of race laps in 24-hour endurance classic
    Acura wins first GTD round of 2017 North American Endurance Championship

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The Acura NSX GT3 completed a highly successful endurance sports car racing debut Saturday and Sunday at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida, as a pair of Michael Shank Racing Acuras dominated the nighttime hours, leading 171 of 634 laps, prior to a best finish of fifth in the 27-car GTD field at the season-opening Rolex 24.

This weekend’s endurance classic marked the North American sports car racing debut for the Acura NSX GT3, with the MSR team fielding a pair of cars for a stellar driving lineup including Andy Lally, Graham Rahal, Katherine Legge and Mark Wilkins in the #93 car; and Jeff Segal, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Oswaldo “Ozz” Negri Jr., and Tom Dyer in the #86 NSX.

The Acura NSX GT3s starred in the overnight hours of the twice-around-the-clock contest, leading – and often running 1-2 – as both cars excelled in the steady rain and wet track conditions that existed from just past 8 p.m. Saturday until 10 a.m. Sunday, when the rain faded away and the 3.56-mile circuit finally began to dry.  In all, the two NSX GT3s led 171 of 634 laps, or 27 percent of the total distance run.

In the closing hours, both cars appeared headed for top-six finishes.  But with just 30 minutes remaining, the #93 NSX GT3 was forced to retire due to damage sustained in earlier on-track incident.  But Segal was able to bring the #86 Acura home fifth in the GTD class, and also claim North American Endurance Championship honors for the “series-within-a-series” of endurance races within the overall IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

Competing in the GTD class of the sports car racing championship, the NSX GT3s race against premium automotive brands including Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. In all, there were 27 cars entered in the GTD field at Daytona, by far the largest of the four classes competing in the 24-hour endurance contest.

Developed from the production Acura NSX, the NSX GT3 utilizes the production NSX’s ultra-rigid and lightweight multi-material body with aluminum-intensive space frame, which is produced at the Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio, exclusive worldwide manufacturing facility for the NSX. The 3.5-liter racing engine uses the same design specifications as the production Acura NSX, including the block, heads, valve train, crankshaft, pistons and dry-sump lubrication system. A six-speed, sequential-shift racing gearbox delivers power to the rear wheels.

The Acura NSX GT3 adds to a rich legacy of Acura sports car racing championships, including the 1991, 1992 and 1993 IMSA Camel Lights manufacturer and driver championships, and the 2009 American Le Mans Series manufacturer, driver and team championships in both the LMP1 and LMP2 classes.

The 2017 WeatherTech SportsCar Championship resumes Saturday, March 18, with another endurance racing classic, the 65th running of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.

Art St. Cyr (President, Honda Performance Development): “To be slightly disappointed with a fifth-place finish in the debut of the Acura NSX GT3 in a 24-hour endurance race, says a lot about the dedication of HPD, Acura and Michael Shank Racing.  Our goal was just to finish the race and, if not for contact damage from earlier in the race, we were on track for two top-six finishes.  This bodes very well for our prospects in this program, beginning at Sebring in March.”

Allen Miller (Race Team Principal, Honda Performance Development): “While a victory certainly would’ve been great, it was extremely satisfying to finish fifth in GTD, and win the Daytona round of the North American Endurance Championship, in our first race in the Acura NSX GT3.  Both Graham [Rahal] and Ryan [Hunter-Reay] fitted in seamlessly to our overall effort and contributed enormously in the overnight hours, when the rain was falling heavily and the track was at its most treacherous.  Thanks to both Ryan and Graham for their efforts, and to everyone at HPD, HRD [Honda R&D Japan], RealTime Racing, Honda of America Racing Team, all of our technical partners and, of course, the Michael Shank Racing organization.  This truly was a ‘group’ Honda success.”

Jeff Segal (Driver, Michael Shank Racing #86 Acura NSX GT3): “We were all a little bit apprehensive about our first race. This NSX has never raced before and there were so many new challenges that might lay ahead of us. Finishing the race was a huge target, so to finish fifth and having led a lot of the race in the rain was really incredible. I have to admit that I’m a little disappointed, because once we had led so much, I wanted to win! But it is really great work by this group. It is truly incredible. A lot of hard work by everyone at Acura, HPD and Michael Shank Racing. Some endless months and weeks were spent working on this car and it paid off.”

Michael Shank (Team Owner, Michael Shank Racing): “The key to this result was constantly digging and never stopping – with a plan. Having a plan helped us a lot here. We talked a lot about the things that could happen in this race and we were ready for them. I’m so pleased to execute on those plans, and be able to have this kind of debut for the NSX. On top of that, all of our guys on the pit lane were just awesome. Every time we went into the pit box, we came out in better position than we were when we went in. I’m thankful, but I’m disappointed because both of our cars should have been in the top-five with no problem. But all-in-all it was just a great debut and I couldn’t be happier for the team, Acura, and HPD. This feels very good and we’re looking forward to a great year ahead.”

Rumor: No Powertrain Upgrades with 2018 TLX A-Spec Package


Automotive News is reporting that the refreshed 2018 Acura TLX will offer an A-Spec package without “significant powertrain upgrades”. The report comes out of an Acura dealer meeting at last month’s 2017 NADA convention.

Based on the article, the three cars captured in the last batch of spy shots were of a 4-cylinder, a 6-cylinder, and an A-Spec model. The A-Spec package will add wheels, a rear spoiler, side skirts, front/rear bumpers, but won’t get a boost in power.

There’s no mention of any other performance upgrades, so the “Type-S” treatment that some were hoping for doesn’t seem likely.

With no news from Acura about the Chicago Auto Show which is just around the corner, expect the 2018 TLX to debut at the New York Show in April.

Visit autonews.com –  Acura details plans to update TLX, for the full article.

Video: Honda NSX vs Porsche 911 Turbo vs Nissan GT-R Part 1

In the first segment of what looks to be an interesting comparison between the Honda NSX, the Porsche 911 Turbo, and the Nissan GT-R, DRIVETRIBE takes the three supercars to the Litchfield facility for initial weight and power numbers.

As it turns out, the instant torque from the NSX’s electric hybrid setup proved to be a little tricky to measure on the dyno.

2017 Acura NSX, NSX GT3, Featured in Project CARS 2 Trailer



Even if you’re not a gamer, you’ll be impressed with the graphics and in-game footage seen in the new trailer for Project CARS 2.

The Project CARS 2 trailer was released yesterday, and along with the Acura NSX and NSX GT3 stealing some serious screen time, the trailer highlights some of the game’s unique features like changing weather systems, dynamic surface conditions, numerous tracks, and of course its diverse range of cars.

In fact Project CARS 2 boasts over 170 licensed cars, and “the largest track roster of any console racing game”. It will also feature 12K resolution and virtual reality – but that’s only if you have the serious hardware to support it.

It was announced by Bandai Namco Entertainment that Project CARS 2 is targeted for a late 2017 launch, on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Check out the trailer and screencaps below:

RealTime Acura Unveils NSX GT3 Liveries

Spied: 2018 Acura RLX Prototype?

Could an RLX MMC be coming for the 2018 model year? New online rumors and this recently spied camouflaged vehicle suggest it may be so.

The mystery car with RLX proportions was caught on video by CarNichiWa.com in Rolling Hills Estates, California.

A closer look at its greenhouse, C-pillar, and body-side character line are definitive clues that it is indeed based on the current RLX. There are a few differences though – the taillights, rear bumper, headlights, and front grille, seem to have been revised to conform with the latest Acura MMC trends.

Aside from the expected exterior styling changes, rumors say that the 2018 RLX could also get interior updates and improvements to the hybrid system.

Check out the video below, and visit CarNichiWa.com – 2018 RLX? We Spot Acura Prototypes On the Street, to read more about the sighting.

Rendered: 2017 NSX with Diamond Pentagon Grille




The 2017 NSX is without doubt, a beautifully executed vehicle with consistent styling that flows through its entire body. Which is why we’ve been wondering how Acura will manage a diamond pentagon grille facelift in the future.

We decided to give it a really quick attempt in photoshop based primarily on the Acura CDX design. Surprisingly, the result worked out relatively well. The new look seems to trade aggressive styling for a bit of elegance – which isn’t a bad thing, especially if there’s a need to differentiate itself from Honda.

In reality though, we’re still not convinced the diamond pentagon grille can be grafted on while still staying true to the original design. What do you think?

Refreshed 2018 Acura TLX to Make World Debut



Official release from Acura Media Newsroom:

Refreshed 2018 Acura TLX to Make World Debut on April 11: Bringing Precision Crafted Performance Design Language to Acura Sedan Lineup

Mar 28, 2017 – LOS ANGELES

Acura will unveil the refreshed and significantly enhanced 2018 TLX performance sedan in New York on April 11. The 2018 TLX will boast a more aggressive, sporty and alluring look inspired by the Acura Precision Concept that debuted at the North American International Auto Show in 2016, a design direction that already has successfully influenced the styling of the 2017 Acura MDX. The TLX refresh also includes new premium features and technology enhancements that place the TLX among the most technologically advanced and well-equipped cars in its segment. Watch the 2018 Acura TLX reveal live on April 11 at 4:45 p.m. ET at acura.us/2018TLXDebut.

“The 2018 TLX will receive new styling elements that ratchet up its emotion and reflect Acura’s focus on Precision Crafted Performance,”said Jon Ikeda, Acura vice president and general manager. “Acura customers embraced the MDX when we raised its game with bold, new styling, and we’re pumped to show how we’re elevating the TLX experience.”

The 2018 TLX five-passenger performance sedan was designed by the Acura Design Studio in Torrance, Calif. and will continue to be produced at the company’s Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio with domestic and globally sourced parts.

Video: “A teacher who love the NSX!”



Is this man the biggest NSX fan in the world? Akihiro Umino is featured in Honda Japan’s “Me and Honda” series for his unique love for the NSX:

    “Akihiro Umino teaches machinery design at a technical high school in Aichi prefecture. His passion for the NSX runs deep, so deep, in fact, that he has filled his whole house with NSX paraphernalia (with his wife’s understanding of course…)!”

And if his extensive collection of scale NSX cars isn’t enough to crown him the “world’s biggest NSX fan”, maybe his full size NSX “mockup” will:

    “Initially, when I started this project, people said that I was just playing around and wasting time. That was very tough and I felt bitter about it. Sometimes, the stress was so intense that it felt like a blood vessel in my brain would burst. However, I began this project with the best of intentions, namely my students, in mind and that effort has turned out rewards many times over.”

Check out the 40-second feature on Akihiro Umino in the video below.

Snapshots: 2018 Acura TLX A-Spec



ou won’t have to wait much longer if you’re looking to check out the refreshed 2018 Acura TLX. With a June 1st release date, there’s a good chance your local Acura dealer already has a few cars on the lot.

We were able to snap a few photos at the West Side Acura dealership in Edmonton where they had several A-Spec models arrive last week. Unfortunately they only had them in Bellanova White Pearl, Crystal Black Pearl, and San Marino Red, so we’re still looking forward to seeing it in the new Still Night Blue Pearl color.

We’ve also included a few side-by-side photos with the outgoing 2017 TLX, which still manages to look pretty sharp next to its new replacement. In all fairness, a non-A-Spec 2018 model would have been a better comparison, but the dealership hadn’t received any yet.
