  • Acura Type S Concept 15

The Acura Type S Concept will make its public debut Friday at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering during Monterey Car Week. Pronounced wheel haunches at the rear impart a rear-wheel drive look, though Acura hasn't said if this vehicle, or the upcoming TLX, will switch to a rear-drive platform.

Acura hasn't offered a Type S model since the TL Type S in 2008, but the concept indicates the brand will bring back the Type S badge.

You could nearly mistake it for a coupe at first glance, in fact. It is flanked by Jewel Eye LED headlights with "Chicane" daytime running lights that draw inspiration from the ARX-05 Daytona Prototype.

While it's primarily form and not so much function that Acura has focused on here, the Type S Concept doesn't completely put engineering aside. The rear end looks positively futuristic, with lots of interesting angles that extend to the taillights, as well as four monster tailpipes at the bottom of everything. High-performance Brembo brakes with four-piston calipers also provide ample stopping power, but Acura hasn't revealed any technical specifications, sadly.

Avec les départs en fin de contrat de Franck Ribéry et Arjen Robben , le Bayern Munich est en quête de renfort au poste d'ailier. Avant de rejoindre l'Inter Milan , le joueur formé à Sochaux a évolué au Borussia Dortmund et au VfL Wolfsburg.

This is no mere design frippery for a high-end vehicle show, never to be seen again, however. Just a concept now, Acura promises that performance products, starting with the second-get TLX, are coming. That earned kudos for its driving style, but was felt by some to be too visually restrained for the segment.

To highlight the car's sporty intent, the Type S concept is also fitted with a carbon-fibre boot-lid spoiler, four exhaust tips, large air intakes, and a rear diffuser.

"The return of Type S is instrumental in our mission to return Acura to its performance roots", Jon Ikeda, vice president and Acura brand officer, said in a statement.

What you see here is a pretty strong preview of what the upcoming TLX Type S will look like.
