Default 2020 Acura TLX PMC Edition

Why don't Honda just flat out buy Mugen? The "performance" potential is golden.

https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/2...ork-auto-show/

PMC - Performance Manufacturing Center

HFP did not stick. PMC will not stick too. Add Mugen and we all know what it is all about.

2020 Acura TLX Mugen. - End of the story, that's all you need to say.

Benz bought AMG. Honda need to just buy Mugen.

The good: Nice paint and no chrome trim

The bad: Using the J series for 24 years and it weighs 3800 lbs

Verdict: The upcoming DOHC V-6 better be awesome.

That's the "window shopping" thread. And since that's the Official thread, I figure people will talking about cars they looked at and wanting to buy?

You think that red is really San Marino red? I'm sure Acura will need another name.

It's probably the Valencia Red Pearl the NSX comes in?

I bet this car is awesome and will be a huge collector's item down the line. Just like the Mugen Si and S2000 CR.

Considering the TLX is the old Accord, I guessing this "special edition" means This is It.

A new TLX is coming. Will it be TLX, or can we hope for a Legend?

I know you're a nice guy but your thoughtlessness really bothers me sometime.

Why would they call this the Legend? The RLX is literally the Legend in Japan.

I never tossed a 3800 lbs car into a corner and maybe this car will surprise me. I suppose the car could be awesome.

It's a new day and age for Ross: Weight no longer matters for him in terms of a car.

For $50k I would expect to at least see the same brakes that come on the CTR.

Mugen does not have a desire to be a direct part of HMC. Why? Because Mugen does not want to be restricted by HMC. For those who do not know: Mugen was founded by Hirotoshi Honda who just happened to be the son of Soichiro Honda of HMC.

Not sure how you perverted my thoughts this time to reach your weird conclusions, but in the Accord/Camry thread I was praising the Accord for being the lighter car.

Yes, please tell me what a fat pig my Golf is--it's lighter than the STI sedan or the Focus RS. And for years I drove a sedan that's about as light as your Cayman. So I'm not sure what you're on about this time.

Did you have a SSBP GS-R or something back in the day? Memory is really stretching for this one but I remember the name from the old days.
