ignore the color...but picture this beaut in WHITE! Wahhhh

Prettiest Acura ever? Probably. NSX excluded.

Honda you have impressed me! The tech is amazing and the weight well under 4000lbs? awesome! If they get the pricing right this should sell VERY well in Canada where Honda is loved.

I believe under 4000 is for FWD only, the SH-AWD should top 4000 a little...

It's a little blocky in the haunches, when you look at it dead on. Kind of like the new RDX. At least for my tastes. I fully expect the details below the bumper line to be completely different - they ALWAYS change that. But what I would really like is perhaps a single projector beam headlamp among those other lights, to give it a more focused (read: less bland) look.

Decent, ok.... i'll give you that. Sexy? hmmm..... :/

can you add a link for that?...the HID Xenon's. This is all I've seen:

Acura’s exclusive new Jewel EyeTM LED headlamps debut on the RLX Concept. The Acura signature Jewel EyeTM headlamps use a dual-stacked array with a total of ten separate high-intensity LED lamps, with ultra-reflective optical lenses and high-gloss trim, to provide powerful down-the-road illumination while simultaneously giving the RLX a highly distinctive and bright-eyed look in both daytime and nighttime conditions.

They said 'WELL UNDER 4000' in the press release I think?

hmmm I'll look around. I must have read rumors somewhere saying that the production model would have the innermost 2 LED's swapped out for HID Xenon while maintaining 8 LED's on the outside utilizing jewel tech. keep you posted if I come across it again

Thanks. I had a feeling the trademark 8 jewel will stay and only that weird high beam and regular light disappear to 1 projector.

It doesn't matter. Acura is BACK! Well they were back the second the NSX was announced but now they are really back!

Kinda makes you wonder when the coupe will come??? A coupe to end it for the 335i and the G37C. haha! Crossfingers!

I'm still holding out for the HSV chasis to get dropped as a dedicated Acura coupe / sports GT.

Imagine a garage with this RLX as the daily driver, the NSX as a show stopper and the HSV as a weekender. LOLOL
