Acura unveils TL A-Spec concept
Torrance, California – The 2004 Acura TL A-Spec concept made its debut at the Greater Los Angeles Auto Show. While the production TL features a wide stance, the Concept TL’s track has been widened by nearly two inches. The wider track combines with custom 21-inch alloy wheels, high performance tires and wide fender flares, to give the Concept a more muscular appearance. A panoramic glass roof flows back along the length of the cockpit.
The front fascia has been redesigned with a new bumper, more angular headlight treatments, an enhanced signature Acura grille and larger lower air intakes. In the rear, the trunk lid has been restyled with an integrated down force spoiler. A new bumper featuring larger, high flow exhaust finishers and new taillight treatments has also been applied.
The TL A-Spec Concept has a 3.2-litre V6 engine with a high flow intake and exhaust as well as internal engine modifications to raise the output to over 300 horsepower. An A-Spec high performance suspension package with track-tuned shocks and springs lowers the car by one inch and enhances the TL’s handling precision. Brembo brake components, including 8-piston caliper and 15-inch drilled rotors, give the TL A-Spec Concept increased stopping power.
