Acura’s Precision Concept shocked and impressed the Detroit Motor Show crowd when it was released a few weeks ago.
Acura made a bold design statement with their Precision Concept, something that Acura claims will “shape the direction of all future Acura products.” According to Acura, the Precision concept was created as a calling card for more distinctive and bolder cars in the future.
The most striking feature of the Precision Concept is what Acura calls the Diamond Pentagon grille, which protrudes from the front of the car in a pentagon/diamond shape (hence the name). While many are calling the front grille a bit messy and over-designed, we think it is a step in the right direction for future Acura designs.
Additional design elements include 22-inch rear wheels that are shod in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The overall dimensions of the car are slightly bigger than Acura’s current models such as the RLX and NSX. Width wise, the Precision Concept is 84 inches wide, almost 8 inches wider than the NSX. Length comes in at 204 inches with a wheelbase of 122 inches. While the car may look much taller than the NSX, in reality it is only 4 inches taller at a total height of 52 inches.
Acura hasn’t mentioned how they plan to integrate this design language into future production vehicles, but they assure us that the concept is an expression of the company’s Precision Crafted Performance DNA and that we will likely be seeing elements from the Precision Concept on future road cars.
