Say Hello To The Stunning Acura Type S Concept

Say Hello To The Stunning Acura Type S Concept”

Acura will be hitting The Quail this weekend with a concept created to re-ignite some of the brand's performance sedan credentials.

Whatever the reason, maybe an injection of style and performance can help.

Honda's high-end spinoff is ready to start injecting a bit of excitement back into its mid-range sports and performance sedans, its new concept recalling the popular Type S versions of cars like the TL that made waves in the mid-2000s before giving way to a more sensible and pedestrian TLX in the noughteens.

Acura says it plans to deliver two Type S performance variants over the next two years, the first of which will be the second-gen TLX Type S. It'll feature faster acceleration and nimbler handling, the automaker promises, along with stronger braking. Of course, it also sets the stage for the re-introducion of Type S performance variants to the Acura line-up after a decade. Building on the Acura Precision Concept from 2016, the Type S Concept's form is characterised by a wide track, low stance, and an expansive hood.

Designed by the Acura Design Studio in California, the Type S looks great in "Double Apex Blue Pearl" which employs nano pigments and a colour-infused clear coat.

The sporty styling continues further back as the concept has a long hood and a rakish windscreen.

The face also has what the brand calls its next-generation LED headlights with "chicane"-shaped daytime running lights (we think they look like stylized check marks) inspired by the Acura ARX-05 Daytona Prototype race vehicle". Forged carbon - where layers of carbon are bonded atop each other, for higher-strength parts - is used in the front and rear splitters, for example, along with the side sills. Stopping ability comes courtesy of drilled Brembo brakes with four-piston calipers.

While it looks like a beefy rear-wheel-drive sedan, that's not the case.

To highlight the car's sporty intent, the Type S concept is also fitted with a carbon-fibre boot-lid spoiler, four exhaust tips, large air intakes, and a rear diffuser.

After its private debut at an event on August 15, the Acura Type S Concept will make its public debut at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering on August 16.

The vehicle is painted in an arresting shade of "Double Apex Blue Pearl" that uses nano pigments and is topped with a color-infused clear coat to improve its luster.
