CardinaleWay Acura of Las Vegas is excited about what the future of Acura holds. At Monterey Automotive Week from August 15-20, Acura will showcase the 2018 RLX Sport Hybrid and the exciting ARX-05 DPi prototype race car. Acura new cars always excite us and we are happy to share this news with you!

Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager for the Acura Division, says, “We chose Monterey Automotive Week to launch Acura’s newest vehicles because the week’s events epitomize the celebration of the automobile. The Acura brand continues to gain momentum with a singular focus on our Precision Crafted Performance DNA, which is brought to life in captivating products like the RLX and the ARX-05 prototype.”

2018 Acura RLX

The new RLX has incorporated design cues like the signature diamond pentagon grille from the Acura Precision Concept. These grilles were also implemented in the 2018 TLX sport sedan and 2017 MDX SUV. Another feature of the redesign is a more sculpted hood, new wheel designs, LED taillights, dual exhausts and gloss black rear diffuser.

Acura ARX-05

Marking an exciting return to prototype racing alongside Team Penske, Acura will campaign two ARX-05 cars in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, beginning with the Rolex 24 at Daytona in January 2018.

ARX-05 stands for Acura Racing Experimental, generation 5 and it is the latest in prototypes fielded by Acura beginning more than 25 years ago. This vehicle was designed by the Acura Design Studio in Los Angeles and the multi-year program will be administered by Honda Performance Development.
