2004 Acura TL A-SPEC Concept

Torrance, Calif. October 31, 2005

The Acura TL A-SPEC Concept explores the next level of performance accessory possibilities for Acura's best-selling sedan. The Concept TL's track has been widened by nearly two inches, which combines with custom 21-in. 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, headlights and an enhanced Acura grille and larger lower air intakes. The trunk lid has been restyled with an integrated spoiler, and a new bumper featuring larger, high flow exhaust finishers and a new taillight treatment has also been applied.

The TL A-SPEC Concept's 3.2-liter V-6 engine features custom intake and exhaust systems that raise output to over 300 horsepower. An A-SPEC high performance suspension package with track-tuned shocks and springs lowers the car by one in., and Brembo 8-piston calipers and 15-in. 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. An ultra suede headliner and carbon/Kevlar door panels and center console with aluminum accents. Custom front seats with heating and cooling vents, a carbon/kevlar racing steering wheel and lightweight aluminum sport pedals help enhance control over the car. The TL A-SPEC Concept also adds Adaptive Cruise Control to the TL's already extensive list of safety features, and a rear-view camera integrated into the trunk lid, which transmits a rearview picture to the navigation screen when the vehicle is in reverse gear.
