Video: Inside the 2015 Acura TLX GT Race Car


Last week, we talked to you about the new, 2015 Acura TLX GT racer that would be competing in IMSA’s World Challenge series against cars like the Ferrari 458, Lamborghini Huracán, Porsche 911 GT3, and more.

Honda’s latest race car is seeing action again this weekend at Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, and Racer Magazine was able to get the Acura’s driver, Peter Cunningham, to give us a walk-through of what makes the upcoming 2015 Acura TLX sports sedan capable of keeping up with – and, he hopes, beating! – the sportier-looking alternatives. Enjoy!

    So much has been written about this car since 2012; what’s fact and fiction is unknown until we see it; would like to know if the additional electric motors driving two wheels augmenting the V-6 and its multi-speed transmission are still components of the production car when debuting; and when will that be now that we’re in August; assume it will still be in 2014, Honda?

    • 1. the car is out and on its way to dealers, now.
      2. electric motors not at launch.
      3. the car was unveiled, in its production form, 7 months ago at Detroit, and most of the questions you’re asking can be answered on the Acura website.

      Happy searching!
