TORRANCE, Calif., July 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Acura’s most capable sedan ever gets a healthy dose of NSX supercar technology, materials and craftsmanship with the new, limited-production 2023 TLX Type S PMC Edition, the fifth vehicle handcrafted by the same master technicians who build the NSX Type S at the Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Ohio1. Offered in one of three NSX-derived premium colors – Curva Red, 130R White and Long Beach Blue – the limited version the TLX Type S PMC Edition production series will be available to order later this year.

Exterior design elements exclusive to the PMC Edition include black berliner paint for the roof, antenna and door handles, and black chrome quad exhaust finishers. The lightweight 20-inch NSX-inspired Y-spoke wheels are also painted in a new copper finish, a first for an Acura model. Additional exterior enhancements include a carbon fiber decklid spoiler, carbon fiber rear diffuser, lower side sill trim and gloss black exterior badging.

Inside, the TLX Type S PMC Edition is further distinguished by carbon fiber interior trim panels, illuminated side sills and premium floor mats with Type S badging and colored binding. Vehicles completed in Curva Red paintwork features an Ebony interior highlighted by Red contrast stitching. The Long Beach Blue Pearl is paired with a vibrant orchid interior with striking blue stitching, while the 130R White is paired exclusively with a sporty red interior. Milano leather seats with Ultrasuede® inserts are standard and an individually numbered serial plaque on the lower console designates the 2023 TLX Type S PMC Edition as a limited-edition vehicle handcrafted at the Performance Manufacturing Center.

After the manual assembly process, each TLX Type S PMC Edition receives the same quality control process as NSX, including a bench check, paint inspection and rough road simulation. To protect paintwork during shipping, PMC Editions are packaged in a specially designed car cover and transported to Acura dealerships via closed single-car carriers.
