Acura adds hand-built flair to its TLX sedan

It's the first in a line of customized cars coming from the home of the NSX supercar

Acura is adding some serious bling to its TLX sedan, and will debut the TLX PMC Edition next week at the New York Auto Show.

The TLX PMC Edition - and the corresponding MDX PMC Edition that will follow it - will be customized at the company's Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, Ohio, where the Acura NSX is produced.

The special edition is based on the top-line TLX Tech A-Spec Package, and will go on sale this summer starting around US$50,000. By comparison, in Canada, a regular TLX with A-Spec Package starts at $42,390.

The TLX is built in Marysville, but the PMC models come off the line at the body-in-white stage, where they're just a shell. At the centre, they're finished in Valencia Red Pearl paint, previously used only on the NSX. Between multiple base coats, two clear coats and curing time, it takes five days to paint each car.

Final assembly then takes place by craftsmen at the centre, and each car receives a numbered serial plaque on the centre console. Each one is also wrapped in a special cover, and delivered to the dealership in an enclosed car carrier.

So what are you getting for your cash, besides that paint? The package also includes gloss black wheels and trim, dark-chrome exhaust finishers, leather and Alcantara seats, perforated leather steering wheel and red interior stitching.

Acura said that it designed the PMC facility not just for the NSX, but to "explore handcrafted production of limited-edition models," and that the TLX and MDX models "are just the beginning."
