On the 2019 New York Auto Present, Acura debuted the TLX PMC Version. PMC stands for Efficiency Manufacturing Middle, the small-volume specialty facility in Marysville, Ohio, the place it builds the NSX. The TLX PMC is a particular handbuilt variant of the TLX sedan that features a trim and package deal mixture that ordinarily could not be ordered collectively. However as soon as all 360 examples are constructed, Acura will add the PMC badge to one more car in its steady.

Along with the NSX and TLX PMC hanging out on stage in New York, there is a equally painted MDX. That’s the MDX PMC, which can grow to be the second PMC car to be manufactured in Marysville. Acura did not but say what number of can be constructed, nevertheless it’s prone to be close to the TLX PMC’s 360-vehicle run.

The method is probably going just like how the TLX PMC is made. Acura begins with a body-in-white of a TLX A-Spec with all-wheel drive, nevertheless it’s whisked off the manufacturing line at that time. From there, PMC’s technicians hand-assemble the car, together with main elements just like the drivetrain and electrics. The vehicles are put by means of the identical battery of exams because the NSX, and the TLX PMC additionally receives the NSX’s deep-as-the-ocean pink paint job. There’s additionally a set of distinctive wheels, a body-colored grille encompass and darkish chrome exhaust suggestions, along with a complement of choices that may’t often be ordered collectively.

Considerably surprisingly, all that stuff does not add that a lot to the automobile’s backside line. Configuring a daily TLX to the specification present in PMC fashions will set an individual again $46,000 earlier than equipment, so it is solely a pair grand to have PMC’s specialists put the car collectively. There is no loopy course of required to order one, both — simply jump over to the seller and signal a doc the place you agree to offer them round $50,000 in trade for a automobile. Fairly commonplace stuff.

It is unclear if the MDX PMC will sport all the identical package because the TLX PMC, however there’s one factor we do know — it will not be low cost. Configuring a 2019 MDX on Acura’s web site with as a lot package as one can reliably anticipate from the PMC model returns a $58,000 price ticket on the minimal, so it will not be obscene to anticipate that the MDX PMC would push into the $60,000 vary. However for a handbuilt crossover that particular, it will be price it to these die-hards.
