The Acura NSX is the automaker’s halo car – the vehicle that showcases the best of what it has to offer. With a price tag that starts at almost $160,000, the NSX isn’t exactly accessible. To help more consumers get a taste of the hand-built performance car that is the NSX, Acura introduced the TLX PMC Edition at the 2019 New York Auto Show that would be built at the manufacturer’s plant in Marysville, Ohio – the same plant where the NSX is put together. And now, we know how much the TLX PMC Edition will cost.

Acura recently announced pricing for the hand-built sedans and the vehicle starts at $50,945, which includes the $1,995 destination fee. That’s quite a lot more than the TLX’s base price of $33,995. It’s awfully close to what a full-loaded TLX with the 290-horsepower V6, all-wheel-drive system, Technology Package, and Advance Package costs, which is $47,345. The difference in pricing also comes down to a higher destination fee, as the regular TLX models are subject to just a $995 destination charge.

Over other TLX models, the PCM Edition comes with the more powerful V6, all-wheel drive, black exterior trim pieces, dark chrome exhaust tips, 19-inch wheels, and Valencia Red Pearl paint. On the inside, the cabin features Milano black leather seats with Alcantara inserts, black piping, red stitching, metal-finished paddle shifters, and a unique serial plaque with the vehicle’s individual number. Only 360 units of the PMC Edition are being built.

The TLX’s primary leverage over competitors is its excellent value. Even at over $50,000, the PMC Edition is more affordable than other midsize luxury sedans. The BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and the Audi A6 all have entry-level models that cost more. And you’re not getting the same hand-built, special edition feeling with those. Options like the Lexus ES 350 F Sport, Lexus GS 300 F Sport, and Cadillac CT6 are priced similarly to the PMC Edition. While those are similarly equipped, they don’t have the same hand-built quality or uniqueness as the TLX PMC Edition, either.

This isn’t the only PMC Edition vehicle that Acura plans to introduce. The automaker has already confirmed that the next vehicle in line to get the same treatment is the MDX – the automaker’s largest SUV. We’re expecting the SUV to get the same sporty touches and handcrafted details.

The NSX may not be doing that well in terms of sales, but the TLX and MDX PMC Edition may bring in some new buyers that are looking for something a little more bespoke in the midsize segment. The TLX PMC Edition is on sale now at Acura dealers nationwide.
