What We Know About the 2015 Acura TLX GT

April 25th, 2014 by

Although we are hot on the heels of the announcement of the 2015 Acura TLX, we already know quite a bit about the main vehicle, from its two engine options (a 4-cylinder with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission and a V6 with a nine-speed automatic transmission) to the range of features and optional SH-AWD.

But what about the racetrack ready 2015 Acura TLX GT? Well, we’ve got a bit of news on that for you too.

The TLX GT is Bred for the Track

When we tell you that the TLX GT is ready for the racetrack, we aren’t kidding. The same vehicle you will one day be able to own is the one that will be making the rounds as Acura’s model in this year’s races. Over twenty years or racing design and development end right here, in this piece of modern engineering that we could marvel at for hours, for days.

The TLX GT Race Car sports a twin-turbocharged engine and will be paired up with RealTime Racing for the Pirelli World Challenge, competing in the premier class against world-famous automakers like Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, and McLaren. While we expect that these automakers will be developing four-door sport sedans inspired by their race vehicles, we are happy that Acura beat them to it with the TLX GT.

If you want to see it in action, Peter Cunningham will take the TLX GT for a spin at the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix May 30 – June 1. In the meantime, we encourage you to pore over the posts we’ve made here about the TLX. We’re just as big of fans of it as you are, and we’re eager to see it leave the competition in the dust.
