2020 Acura TLX PMC Edition will be hand-built alongside the NSX

At next week's 2019 New York International Auto Show, Acura will reveal a pair of new models, the 2020 TLX PMC Edition and MDX PMC Edition Prototype. The duo will be limited-run models that get final assembly at Honda's Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, Ohio, along the same production line as the Acura NSX. The TLX PMC Edition goes on sale this summer with a starting price of around $50,000. Production will be limited to just 360 models hand-assembled over a six-month period. The production version of the MDX PMC Edition will be built sometime after the TLX PMC run is complete.

Think of the TLX PMC as an A-Spec performance model with features available with the Advance Package like a surround-view camera and AcuraWatch driver assistance features. Currently, the two packages are mutually exclusive. There are no performance upgrades beyond what the A-Spec already offers. Power from the 290-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 is sent to all-four wheels through a nine-speed automatic. The TLX PMC uses Acura's Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) to manage the power at each wheel. It also gets the A-Spec's stiffer dampers and quicker steering ratio.

Toyota Supra spied winter testing alongside the BMW Z5 convertibleEvery time a new batch of Toyota Supra spy photos appears in our email, the entire Autoblog staff grows slightly more giddy in anticipation. When Toyota sets its engineers free, the automaker is capable of producing some wonderfully capable and formidable machines. Toyota head Akio Toyoda's no-boring-cars creed, not to mention the fact that the automaker is partnering with BMW, gives us hope that, like the Subaru/Toyota BRZ/FR-S/86 mashup, the project may produce something more than the neutered and milquetoast Toyota products of late.
