Acura will debut two special limited-production models at the upcoming New York Auto Show. The first is the 2020 Acura TLX PMC Edition which has been built by the same master technicians who are behind the successful NSX. Deliveries of 2020 Acura TLX PMC Edition will commence from this summer and starting price would be $50,000. Another model that will be showcased at the event would be MDX PMC Edition. The company said in a statement that PMC was not only to build NSX but to give them flexibility to explore handcrafted production of limited-edition models. Jon Ikeda, Acura brand officer further stated that 2020 Acura TLX PMC Edition and MDX are first to take full advantage of this capability and they intend to explore additional options.
2020 Acura TLX PMC Edition is powered with i-VTEC V6 unit that works in conjugation with Acura’s SH-AWD system. It also offers several premium features shared with TLX Advance Package with exterior and interior components from Acura’s A-Spec lineup. TLX PMC Edition will act as range-topping vehicle in TLX family. Each 2020 TLX PMC Edition comes with Valencia Red Pearl finish. It is one of the most vibrant color from Acura which was earlier reserved for NSX supercar. It is a complex manufacturing process as the paint features nano pigment technology that produces high color saturation and deep levels of contrast. Each of them goes through hand inspection and takes 5 days to complete finishing process.
After the completion of this process, technicians begin hand assembly of the vehicles. Then they add body-color grille surround, gloss black painted roof and door handles, dark chrome 4-inch dual exhaust finishers, and the PMC Edition 19-inch wheels. Interior of 2020 Acura TLX PMC Edition consist of black Milano leather seats with Alcantara inserts, custom floor mats, along with black piping and red stitching for the seats, door panels and center armrest. A-Spec steering wheel features perforated black leather, red stitching and metal-finished paddle shifters. The center console comes with individually numbered serial plaque. TLX PMC Edition supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with heated and ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, and Acura ELS Studio premium audio system with 10 speakers.
