Spied on the Street (again, in daylight!): 2009 Acura TL
 Date: August 22, 2007 13:38
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: Priddy/Doane
 Credibility Rating: Not Specified


Although this prototype is cloaked in camouflage, this is the first time its been photographed while testing during daylight hours. Usually Acura tests in the dark of night, but we were lucky to have caught this future TL in a rare afternoon test run.

Although nearly everything is covered in vinyl, a close look at what is seen of the headlamps and especially taillights, as well as the shape escaping from the disguise – we believe this carries over strong styling cues from Acura’s Advanced Sedan Concept which was first shown at the 2006 LA Auto Show.

We still don’t know too much about the 2009 TL, but our photographer was very impressed with the way he saw it handle. In his own words, he exclaimed “…its just crazy fast and looks to have a lot of grip....the guy took a corner posted at 20mph at around 45-50 with no trouble!”
