Acura Precision Concept Nabs Spot on the Pebble Beach Concept Lawn
Acura has been chosen to show off its latest concept car, the Precision Concept, on the Concept Lawn at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
Acura calls the design theme for this concept “quantum continuum,” previewing a glimpse of what future Acura models might look like.
“We’re proud to have the Acura Precision Concept featured among the most prestigious vehicles in the world at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager of the Acura Division. “More than a concept, the Acura Precision Concept is the blueprint for Acura’s future styling direction and manifests our commitment to delivering Precision Crafted Performance in every element of the Acura experience.”
The Precision Concept has already had an impact on Acura’s passenger vehicle lineup, with the 2017 MDX adopting the concept’s diamond pentagon grille. More models in the lineup are also set to start adopting this new grille as they are redesigned.
Outside of the wild supercar exterior, the Precision Concept also features a new human-machine interface that uses a wide curved center screen which is operated by a touch pad suspended on the center stack, which is “floating” thanks to a cantilevered design.
The car was designed at Acura’s California Design Studio.
