The manufacturing run of the 2023 TLX Type S PMC Edition is restricted to only 300 cars for the U.S. market, with 100 units available in each of three premium colours taken from the NSX: Curva Red, 130R White, and Long Beach Blue.

The 20-inch lightweight Y-spoke wheels inspired by the NSX are coated in a unique Copper colour, a first for an Acura car. Additional external upgrades include a gloss carbon fibre decklid lip spoiler and rear diffuser, lower side sill embellishment, and gloss-black exterior badging.

 

 

Inside, the TLX Type S PMC Edition has carbon fibre inside trim panels, lighted side sills, and luxury floor mats with Type S logos and coloured accent binding. The Ebony inside of vehicles painted Curva Red is accented with red contrast stitching. Long Beach Blue Pearl is matched with a beautiful Orchid upholstery with blue stitching, whilst 130R White is solely combined with a sporty Red interior.

 

 

Standard Milano leather seats with Ultrasuede® inserts and an individually numbered serial plaque on the lower console identify the 2023 TLX Type S PMC Edition as a limited-edition, Performance Manufacturing Center-crafted car.

Every TLX Type S, including the PMC Edition, is equipped with a 355-horsepower turbocharged V6 engine, Super Handling All-Wheel DriveTM (SH-AWD®) with real torque vectoring, Brembo® front brakes, and a double-wishbone front suspension. The Type S-exclusive engine was designed by some of the company's most experienced powertrain engineers, including members of the team that created the NSX's twin-turbocharged V6 hybrid power unit. It was manufactured in Ohio at the Anna Engine Plant. In addition, its Type S-exclusive Sport+ setting sharpens reflexes for enhanced performance and driver satisfaction.

Engineers at Acura designed the TLX Type S as an emotionally engaging, high-performance sedan without compromising practicality or comfort. Every TLX Type S and TLX Type S PMC Edition also has 16-way driver and front passenger sport seats with power-adjustable bolsters, an ELS STUDIO 3D® 17-speaker premium audio system, and a 10.2-inch audio and information display controlled by Acura's acclaimed True Touchpad InterfaceTM.

 

 

Standard safety and driver assistance features include the AcuraWatchTM suite of safety and driver assistance technologies and the world's first front passenger airbag engineered to decrease head movement during a collision.

After hand-assembly, each TLX Type S PMC Edition undergoes the same quality assurance procedures as the NSX, including a dyno test, paint inspection, and rough-road simulation. To preserve the paint throughout delivery, PMC Editions are delivered to Acura dealers in enclosed, single-car trailers while draped in a specially developed vehicle cover.
