Acura’s New Type S Concept Is Beautiful.
Honda‘s luxury branch Acura decided to bring back its Type S in a major way. Acura discontinued the line back in 2011 but today they give us a glimpse of what the new line could look like with the Type S Concept. Which they unveiled for the first time at Monterey Car Week.
We don’t have any news on what’s under the hood. Acura has been silent on concept’s engine or powertrain but what we have here is far more important than that. For starters, the Acura S-Type concept features a “Double Apex Blue Pearl” pearl paint job. Also, it utilizes the Diamond Pentagon grille in the front which allows optimum airflow to the engine and breaks. Speaking of breaks, the S-Type concept features four-piston yellow Brembo calipers. The brand’s unique four-lamp “Jewel Eye” LEDs provide substantial illumination both on the front and the rear. Furthermore, the Type S concept features carbon detailing throughout the bodywork. Such as the front splitter and vents, side sills, wheels, and the rear spoiler and diffuser.
Yes Acura’s new Type S is only in its concept stage right now, but the company confirmed that the Type S would be the blueprint for the upcoming models: “Representing a fundamental step towards fulfilling Acura’s return to Precision Crafted Performance, which started with the debut of the second-generation NSX, the Type S Concept sets the stage for re-introducing Type S performance variants to the Acura line-up after a decade hiatus, and will heavily influence the character of the upcoming, second-generation TLX Type S.”
Acura hasn’t announced release dates for the two upcoming Type S performance models, but expect them to release within the next two years. Lastly, for more automotive news, The 2020 Acura NSX Pays Homage to Past Models With New “Indy Yellow” Color Option.
