The Japanese brand will show the Acura Type S concept car as part of Monterey’s automobile week. Recall that earlier the Type S prefix received the most powerful versions of Acura. The last such car was released ten years ago. Now the company has decided to revive this tradition.

The new Acura Type S concept, which heralds the return of powerful versions of Acura, will become a kind of prototype of a more powerful version of the second generation Acura TLX sedan. With the new concept car, brand management will hint at what the Acura TLX sports sedan will look like. The conceptual Type S gets an original design with an abundance of “sharp” edges, as on the latest Acura models, large air intakes in the front bumper, massive wheel arches, a pentagonal radiator grille, as well as an elongated hood and a short trunk.

The head optics of the Acura Type S consists of several sections, and its body was painted in a beautiful blue color “Double Apex Blue Pearl”, without forgetting about the carbon details. Separate elements of the exterior of the concept car in the future can be seen on serial models of the brand.

There is no information about the motor that will receive the concept. But it is known that Acura Type S relies carbon-fiber aerodynamic body kit and 21-inch wheels. It is planned that the second-generation Acura TLX will appear next year. The debut of its “charged” version is also just around the corner.

By the way, in the next couple of years, the Type S version will receive another new Acura model – the large MDX crossover.
