Acura Type S Concept

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.

Slinky four-door is said to preview a Type S version of the next-generation Acura TLX, which should go on sale in 2020. Clearly related to the Acura Precision Concept of 2016, the Type S Concept stretches out the hood and gives the A-pillars an elongated rake, while the back doors blend near-seamlessly into the rear fenders. It's unclear what the second Type S auto might be, or indeed whether it will be another sedan or one of Acura's SUVs. The 21-inch multi-spoke wheels are also made of the same material.

The concept features the slimmest, and most attractive, iteration of its diamond pentagonal grille, as well as headlights and tail-lights with chicane-inspired graphics. Based on how this thing looks, we can't wait.

The face also has what the brand calls its next-generation LED headlights with "chicane"-shaped daytime running lights (we think they look like stylized check marks) inspired by the Acura ARX-05 Daytona Prototype race vehicle". Further below, we can see large air intakes and a stylish carbon fiber splitter that wraps around the front end. High-performance Brembo brakes with four-piston calipers also provide ample stopping power, but Acura hasn't revealed any technical specifications, sadly.

The side profile is clean and continues the sporty theme. The outline of the long, swept-back greenhouse defines the shape of the cabin.

The vehicle is painted in an arresting shade of "Double Apex Blue Pearl" that uses nano pigments and is topped with a color-infused clear coat to improve its luster.

After its private debut at an event on August 15, the Acura Type S Concept will make its public debut at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering on August 16.
