Honda, which builds its NSX supercar at its Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio, will add two other cars to production at the center – the Acura TLX sedan and MDX crossover. The TLX will enter production first as a 2020 model-year product. Like the NSX, the Acura TLX PMC Edition will be built by hand. It’ll make its official debut at the 2019 New York International Auto Show.

There are a few features that set a TLX PMC Edition apart from other TLX sedans. Paint is one of those fundamental differences. Acura will use the same paint process used on the NSX for the TLX PMC Edition. It’s a solvent-based paint the Asian automaker has only used for the NSX supercar. It takes five days to cure compared to the one day needed for the TLX’s standard water-based paint. The TLX arrives at the Honda’s Performance Manufacturing Center as a body-in-white.

Other unique PCM Edition features include a gloss black roof, gloss black door handles, body-color grille surround, body-color mirror caps, four-inch black exhaust tips, and gloss black 19-inch wheels. Each 2020 Acura TLX PMC Edition receives the A-Spec Technology Package, Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, and the optional V6. Acura didn't announce the price; however, it said cost should be in the $50,000 neighborhood. That is about the same price as a fully spec’d Acura TLX.

The 2020 Acura TLX PMC Edition arrive at dealerships later this summer. It could signal a shift for the luxury brand that is competing in a crowded luxury segment. Focusing on special edition models is one way to stand out.
