This extensively modified TL is a one-of-a-kind built to explore the next level of performance accessory possibilities for Acura's best-selling sedan.

Based on the TL luxury performance sedan, the TL A-SPEC Concept is an exciting expression of Acura high performance. While the production TL features a wide stance, the Concept TL's track has been widened by nearly two inches. The wider track combines with custom 21-inch alloy wheels, high performance tires and wide fender flares, to give the Concept an even more muscular appearance. A panoramic glass roof flows back along the length of the cockpit, providing breathtaking visibility.

The front fascia has been redesigned with a new bumper, more angular headlight treatments, an enhanced signature Acura grille and larger lower air intakes. In the rear, the trunk lid has been restyled with an integrated down force spoiler. A new bumper featuring larger, high flow exhaust finishers and new taillight treatments has also been applied.

The TL A-SPEC Concept boasts a 3.2-litre V-6 engine that utilizes a high flow intake and exhaust as well as internal engine modifications to raise the output to over 300 horsepower. An A-SPEC high performance suspension package with track-tuned shocks and springs lowers the car by one inch and enhances the TL's handling precision. Brembo brake components, including 8-piston calliper and 15-inch drilled rotors, give the TL A-SPEC Concept increased stopping power.

Inside, the TL A-SPEC Concept features a racing-inspired cockpit clothed in premium Matador Red leather. The upper headliner is finished in ultra suede trim while the door panels and centre console feature carbon/kevlar and aluminium accents. Custom designed front seats with heating and cooling vents provide optimum support during aggressive driving, while a carbon/kevlar racing steering wheel and lightweight aluminium sport pedals deliver a highly tactile feel to help enhance control over the car.

The TL A-SPEC Concept adds Adaptive Cruise Control' to the TL's already extensive list of safety features. This leading-edge system uses sensors in the grille to keep the TL A-SPEC Concept a safe distance from the car in front of it by controlling the accelerator and brake as needed. Laser radar tracks the speed and distance of the vehicle in front and maintains the TL A-SPEC Concept's speed accordingly.

In addition, the Concept A-SPEC TL features a rear-view camera integrated into the trunk lid, which transmits a rear-view picture to the navigation screen when the vehicle is in reverse gear.
