The Acura TLX GT Race Car Debuts at Detroit Grand Prix

March 31st, 2014 by

You will be hard pressed to find an employee at an auto dealer that isn’t a fan of racing on some level, so when we at Chicagoland Acura Dealers heard about the race-ready Acura TLX GT, well, we were just counting down the days until it debuted on the track.

And it’s coming soon to the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix; some of us will be making the trip to the Motor City just to check it out in person, just like many of you will likely visit a Chicagoland Acura Dealer to see the 2015 Acura TLX firsthand when it debuts.

Profiling the Acura TLX GT

As the name implies, this race car will be in the highly competitive GT category as a single-car entry from RealTime Racing, driven by team captain Peter Cunningham. This moves Acura into the top category at the Pirelli World Challenge competing against models like the Cadillac CTS-V, Chevy Corvette, Dodge Viper, Mercedes SLS, Porsche 911, and more.

Art St. Cyr, President of Honda Performance Development and Vice President, Product Planning and Logistics, American Honda remarked on the competition as “incredible, but Acura has never shied away from strong competition, in the marketplace or on the race track.”

If you know anything about the luxury car market in Chicago, you know that’s also true for us at Chicagoland Acura Dealers. We do our best to go toe-to-toe with the best in our class, giving you access to affordable luxury in eleven convenient locations. We do everything we can to embody the Acura spirit, and that’s why we’re so excited for the Detroit Grand Prix.
