Acura's New Precision Concept Unveiled At NAIAS 2016. 'Precision Crafted Performance' The New Mantra!
Acura has unveiled its new precision concept at the 2016 North American International Auto Show held in Detroit.
Developed by California Design Studio, the concept is meant to express
Considered to be Honda's premium brand, Acura is known to emphasize on both style and performance. During the auto show, the company executives reiterated the importance of precision concept performance.
According to I4UNews, the concept car's shape has a 'Camaro-like power' as it features a low-crouched build and a wide stance.
According to Lead exterior designer Michelle Christensen, the new concept is intended to clarify Acura's mantra of 'Precision Crafted Performance' for both internal as well as external purposes.
"Coming off of [the NSX launch] we wanted to look at our line-up and design language and reassess where we're going," he said, as cited by CarAndDriver. "We had every intent to trickle the NSX design elements and soul into our products, so we wanted to make a vision car not only to show the world what our intentions are, but also to have a muse in the studio to inspire our designers and get everyone on the same page."
"We're applying as much of this as possible, from the actual design theme to the proportion to the technology, the lighting, and especially the new grille," he added.
He also said that the name of the new grille was the 'diamond pentagon.' The general shape resembles that of a diamond and the details in the mesh are likely to have radiating diamonds. That's a theme that they are set to carry into production.
Since the reviews have been released, fans have been anticipating the official release date of Acura's new precision concept cars.
