The fifth handcrafted model in the PMC lineage will arrive later this year.

Acura early Friday debuted the latest addition to its ultra-limited PMC collection, the 2023 TLX Type S PMC Edition. The sport sedan will be handcrafted at the brand’s Performance Manufacturing Center, which produced the NSX supercar. Appropriately enough, the TLX will borrow a handful of design touches from the mid-engined model.

Acura will offer the TLX Type S PMC Edition in three colors, all previously found on the NSX: Curva Red, 130R White, and Long Beach Blue. Each color is paired with a unique interior color scheme, too. Curva Red goes black, with red contrast stitching; 130R White pairs with a red interior; while Long Beach Blue gets the Orchid (white) interior with matching blue stitching. Outside, eagle-eyed supercar spotters will clock the black roof, door handles, and exhaust tips. The rear lip spoiler and diffuser are black too, but move closer and you’ll find them made of carbon fiber. The spindly 20-inch alloys get a fresh coat of copper paint to further stand out.

Inside, Acura fits each TLX PMC Edition with a numbered plaque in the center console, in addition to a swath of carbon fiber trim pieces. Leather seats with Ultrasuede inserts are standard with all three colors.

There are no mechanical changes to the PMC Edition. It continues to use Acura’s twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6, spitting out 355 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque through a 10-speed auto and Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system. Acura also sticks the same powertrain in the MDX Type S.

Acura hasn’t announced pricing or production figures for the 2023 TLX Type S PMC Edition yet. If previous PMCs are any indication, it will be supremely limited in quantity. The TLX will be available for order later this year.
