  • The 2023 Acura TLX Type S PMC Edition will be built at the same Performance Manufacturing Center that is currently building the final version of the NSX, the 600-hp Type S.

  • The TLX Type S PMC Edition will be offered in three paint colors from the NSX—Curva Red, 130R White, and Long Beach Blue.

  • The PMC Edition also gains a carbon-fiber lip spoiler and rear diffuser, as well as blacked-out trim and unique interior treatments paired to each exterior hue.

The Acura NSX bows out after the 2022 model year, ending a six-year run with the limited-production 600-horsepower Type S variant. But while Acura’s Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio will soon be finished building the hybrid mid-engined sports car, the Center’s technicians will stay busy crafting the 2023 Acura TLX Type S PMC Edition, which takes inspiration from the NSX with design updates and a fresh color palette.

The PMC Edition gains minor visual changes—the roof, antenna, and door handles are painted in Berlina Black, while the quad exhaust tips are finished in black chrome. The 20-inch wheels feature a copper hue, while the special edition also adds a carbon-fiber lip spoiler and rear diffuser, as well as black side sill trim and exterior badging. The PMC Edition will be offered in three colors borrowed from the NSX—Curva Red, 130R White, and Long Beach Blue.

Carbon fiber also makes an appearance on the PMC Edition’s interior, along with exclusive floor mats and illuminated door sills. Each exterior paint option is paired with a different interior color—Curva Red is matched with a black interior with red stitching, Long Beach Blue comes with an white interior and blue stitching, and 130R White gets a red interior. There is also a small numbered plaque on the lower center console to serve as a reminder of the PMC Edition’s exclusivity.

The PMC Edition also receives the same special post-production treatment as the NSX, with a dyno check, paint inspection, and rough-road simulation test. The vehicles are protected by a car cover and shipped to dealers in closed, single-car carriers. Orders for the TLX Type S PMC Edition will open later this year ahead of a limited-production run, but Acura hasn’t said how much it will cost. Expect a sizable increase over the Type S’s $54,795 starting price.
