Read on for everything we currently know about the new Acura concept.
When is the Acura Type S Concept Coming?
The Acura Type S Concept will get its world premiere at a private Acura reception on August 15th followed by a public debut on August 16 at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering and a showcase at the historic Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Concept Lawn on August 18.
As summed up by Jon Ikeda, vice president and Acura Brand Officer: “The return of Type S is a pivotal moment for Acura, sending a powerful message that we are committed to fulfilling the Precision Crafted Performance brand promise across our lineup”. Ultimately, it shows a new renewed commitment to Acura Motorsports.
What is the Acura Type S Concept?
In terms of design, the Type S will showcase a powerful stance and expressive silhouette. As summed up by Car and Driver: “The proportions are stunning. There’s an elegance to the design, which is clean and without extraneous affectation”.
It’s the latest step in Acura’s focus on performance. We’ve seen it with the second-generation NSX supercar, the expansion of the Acura A-Spec line, and the popular third generation RDX. Now we see it in the return of the Type S models, which previously set performance standards with purposeful styling, increased power, and aggressive suspension tuning.
