This is a "handcrafted" car after all.
While Acura is a Japanese luxury automaker, it builds many cars (including the NSX supercar) here in the United States. The NSX is assembled at the Acura Performance Manufacturing Center in Ohio, the same plant that now produces the company's special edition PMC models. Acura first announced that the TLX PMC Edition would be painted in the same shade of Valencia Red Pearl paint as the NSX and would be built on the same assembly line. Limited to just 360 units, the TLX PMC Edition was priced at $50,945.
This isn't exactly cheap for a normal sedan with a special paint job but trust us, that red hue really sparkles under the light of an auto show stand. Now, Acura will build a second PMC Edition based on the 2020 MDX SUV. Pricing has just been announced and it's even more expensive than the TLX.
The 2020 Acura MDX PMC Edition costs $63,745 (including $1,995 destination and handling). It will arrive at US Acura dealerships starting on February 1 and will be limited to just 330 units. 300 of those cars will be sold in the US while only 30 will go to Canada. Each one will be painted in Valencia Red Pearl using nano-pigment technology, the most vibrant paint Acura currently offers.
To justify the price, the MDX PMC Edition is based on the top-of-the-line MDX Advance trim - which carries an MSRP of $59,275 - but also features the sporty features of the A-Spec package. As with all non-hybrid MDX models, the PMC Edition is powered by a 3.5-liter i-VTEC V6 engine producing 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque going out to a nine-speed automatic. Acura's SH-AWD system is included as well.
Exclusive options on the PMC Edition include Valencia Red Pearl nano pigment paint, numbered serial plaque, black 20-inch split-10-spoke wheels with black lug nuts, gloss black roof panel, gloss black roof antenna, gloss black exterior mirrors, gloss black door handles, black Milano leather seats with Alcantara inserts, metal-finished paddle shifters, and floormats with metal A-Spec badging.
