2013 Acura RLX Urban Luxury Sedan news, pictures, specifications, and information


◾Acura demonstrates tuner potential of RLX Luxury Performance Sedan and ILX Compact Luxury Sedan using Acura Genuine Accessories and top aftermarket brands

Acura today unveiled three customized sedans at the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, including the Acura RLX VIP Sedan, created by Evasive Motorsports, the RLX Úrban Luxury Sedan and Street Performance ILX, both created by MAD Industries.

'How better to amp up the inherent luxury, excitement and prestige of the Acura Brand than to partner wîth the enthusiast crowd and create these custom RLX and ILX sedans,' said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of Auto Operations. 'SEMA is where we go to add that little bit of spice that brings out the true performance character in our Acura lineup.'

Acura engaged MAD Industries and Evasive Motorsports, both located in Southern California, to use Acura sedans as the platform to create even more exciting and dynamic custom vehicles.

2014 Acura RLX VIP Sedan
Evasive Motorsports created an Acura RLX VIP Sedan that is equally comfortable for daily commuting, or as a stylish upgrade for an evening on the town. The design includes a custom carbon fiber front bumper lip and vents, a modified rear bumper and fabricated exhaust system wîth titanium tips. Chargespeed side skirts combined wîth a deck lid spoiler and splash guards from Acura Genuine Accessories round out the body modifications. Nano-Fusion Film is used to protect paint on the front end. The wheels are 21-inch Advan F15 models wrapped in 245/35ZR-21 Continental ExtremeContact DW tires, both contributing to the VIP look. Prototype Tein Street Flex coilovers allow lowering of the RLX body. Four-pot Project Mu calipers and brake pads, and Evasive-spec brake rotors sit behind the front wheels. In the cabin, custom neck pillows wrapped in Jordan Brand-inspired elephant print add luxury and style.
