As luxury brands go, Acura is a conservative one, and they’re sticking to the status quo with a new concept car.

Revealed today at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the new TLX concept was built by Galpin Auto Sports for Acura and is inspired by the brand’s new TLX GT race car.

Racing will be a big part of the Acura brand moving forward and Galpin took cues from the TLX World Challenge racer and integrated them into a new aero kit for the sports sedan.

To help the package pop are a set of 19-inch wheels and a lowered suspension with upgraded brakes and a new sports exhaust.

While you can’t buy any of these parts there is one part of the new TLX SEMA concept that will soon be available to car shoppers: its paint.

The new Andaro Blue shade is a new signature color for the brand and will be offered on future Acura models.
