Acura announced the PMC Edition TLX and MDX at the 2019 New York Auto Show. The TLX was set to be the first model to receive the "hand-built" treatment. The cars are assembled in Acura's Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio, alongside the NSX supercar. Press release follows:

Jul 1, 2019 - TORRANCE, CALIF.
  • Handbuilt 2020 TLX PMC Edition is produced in the Performance Manufacturing Center by the same master technicians as NSX
  • TLX PMC Edition combines the line-topping premium features of the TLX Advance Package with the sporty character of A-Spec
  • Features the highest quality, most vibrant Valencia Red Pearl paint that Acura has offered on a production car, using nano pigment paint technology previously exclusive to NSX
  • Production limited to only 360 individually numbered units

The 2020 Acura TLX PMC Edition begins arriving at select dealerships across the U.S. this week. Each handcrafted TLX carries a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP1) of $50,945 (including $1,995 destination and handling). The limited-edition TLX PMC Edition is handbuilt by the same master technicians that assemble the NSX supercar at Acura's Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, Ohio2.

The 2020 TLX PMC Edition sits atop the TLX lineup, featuring Acura's 3.5-liter direct-injected i-VTEC® V6 powertrain and torque-vectoring Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®). A unique build, the PMC Edition combines the line-topping premium features of the TLX Advance Package with the sporty character of the TLX A-Spec. PMC Edition-exclusive exterior design elements include Valencia Red Pearl paint, a body-colored grille surround, gloss black painted roof and door handles; gloss black 19-inch wheels; body-colored side mirror housings, and dark chrome 4-inch dual exhaust finishers.

Inside, the TLX PMC Edition features black Milano leather seats with Alcantara™ inserts, black piping and red stitching for the seats, door panels, and center armrest. An A-Spec steering wheel includes perforated black leather, red stitching and metal-finished paddle shifters. The individually numbered serial plaque on the lower console designates the 2020 TLX PMC Edition as one of 360 units handcrafted at the Performance Manufacturing Center.

Following the hand-assembly process, each TLX PMC Edition receives the same quality control process as NSX, including a dyno check, paint inspection, rough-road simulation and water leak test. To protect the paint during shipping, the PMC Edition is wrapped in a specially designed car cover and transported to Acura dealers via enclosed, single-car carriers.
