Acura has digitally previewed their TLX Type S PMC Edition, a limited edition run of their self-proclaimed “best performing Acura sedan ever.”

The 2023 TLX Type S PMC Edition gets its name from Acura’s Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio, the same group responsible for the NSX Type S supercar. The TLX Type S PMC Edition will be the fifth vehicle handcrafted from this division, boasting a series of enhancements by way of tech, materials and craftsmanship derived from the NSX.

Starting with the exterior, the PMC Edition will be offered in three NSX colors: Curva Red, 130R White and Long Beach Blue. These are contrasted by a Berlina Black painted roof, antenna and door handles; the quad exhaust tips are also finished black. On the contrary, the 20-inch wheels are painted in a new copper finish-- a first for an Acura model. These “Y-spoke” wheels are also inspired by the NSX, as are the carbon fiber rear spoiler and diffuser. Black side sill garnishes and badging further add to the PMC’s styling.

Some of that carbon fiber extends into the cabin via special trim panels, but the interior still remains properly upscale thanks to the varying interior wrappings. Any vehicle painted in Curva Red comes with an Ebony interior with red stitching; Long Beach Blue models receive an Orchid interior with matching blue stitching, and 130R White PMC’s come with a Red interior. Those seats are made of Milano leather with Ultrasuede inserts. Other premium accouterments include illuminated side sills, premium floor mats, and a numbered serial plaque on the lower console.

All of this is handcrafted at the Performance Manufacturing Center, receiving the same quality control process as the NSX. That means a dyno check, paint inspection and rough-road simulation. Ensuring that extra work doesn’t go to waste, each PMC ships with a specially designed car cover-- oh, and each model is transported to dealers through enclosed single-car carriers.

The 2023 Acura TLX Type S PMC Edition will be available for ordering this year. The exact number of units to be allocated for this limited run is yet to be disclosed.
