Acura is Taking it’s 500 HP TLX to Pikes Peak

For the 6th year in succession, Acura will handle vehicles in the 2017 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb occasion. This year, they’re conveying some fresh out of the box new metal to the gathering.

Acura will handle three autos at Pikes Peak this year two diverse TLX vehicles and one NSX execution car. Maybe the most essential auto in the race this year is the TLX A-Spec, which is making its hustling debut.

Its 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 puts out 500 HP and it highlights a changed suspension, carbon fiber streamlined bits and a completely stripped inside. The man accountable for steering this ship is Nick Robinson a Pikes Peak veteran who accomplished class triumph in a 2017 NSX a year ago. The TLX A-Spec will partake in the Exhibition class.

The All New Acura TLX

The second TLX GT is no more unusual to Pikes Peak. It utilizes a similar twin turbocharged V6 as it did in the 2014-2016 Pirelli World Challenge arrangement, with slight tuning adjustments to manage the rise. In the driver’s seat of this auto is Peter Cunningham, a long-term racer right now working with RealTime Racing. The TLX GT will keep running in the Open class.

At last, we have the NSX. With loads of motivation taken from the NSX GT3 racecar, as with a year ago, this NSX brandishes not so much weight but rather more streamlined features than the standard street auto. Its product has been tuned particularly for slope ascensions, and it’ll wear some sticky R-compound tires to help explore the 100 or more turns up Pikes Peak. Its driver is James Robinson, a long-term Pikes Peak member and an individual from Honda R&D’s powertrain gathering. It’ll keep running in the Time Attack 1 Class.

You can get every one of the three in real life on June 25. When the slope climb’s 95th running commences. Acura won’t be the main automaker taking an interest in the occasion this year. Faraday Future as of late reported that its FF 91 electric auto will contend in the Exhibition class, as well.
