Three Acura Entries Earn Top Qualifying Positions for 2017 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

The Acura TLX GT, TLX A-Spec and the NSX all earned qualifying times for the 95th Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado Spring. The TLX GT, driven by Pikes Peak rookie Peter Cunningham, got the top qualifying spot in the Pikes Peak Open Class. The TLX A-Spec made its racing debut with the top qualifying spot in Exhibition Class and the NSX got the second place qualifying time in Time Attack 1 Class. To learn more about these award-winning cars and to test drive the production models, visit our CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas dealership.

“Our strong run in qualifying today in the No. 42 Acura TLX GT was the culmination of hard work and great preparation by RealTime Racing and HPD,” said Cunningham. “And it was great to see [brothers] James and Nick Robinson turn in great results as well, so I think it’s fair to say that the three of us Acura drivers are looking forward to race day this Sunday!”

“We’re absolutely thrilled with the performance and speed we were able to get today from the No.902 Acura NSX,” said James Robinson. “Thanks to the Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive technology, we were able to remain competitive against a very deep field of highly modified race cars in the Time Attack 1. We’re definitely looking forward to race day and to a strong result for Acura!”

This is the sixth year in a row that Acura vehicles have qualified to compete in the Pikes Peak event, a race to the 14,115-foot summit.

Five of Acura’s Six Vehicles Are Built In Ohio

Acura’s MDX luxury SUV is now produced at the East Liberty Auto Plant (ELP) in Marysville, Ohio. ELP joins Honda Manufacturing of Alabama in Lincoln, Ala. in producing the MDX. The Acura NSX supercar and the TLX and ILX luxury sedans are also produced at the Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville. CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas is proud our vehicles are built in America. We invite you to come test drive our Acura new cars.

MDX Production
Upgrades to the East Liberty Auto Plant make it possible for the ELP to assume sole production of the MDX this fall, freeing up the Alabama plant to increase production of the Honda Pilot.

“From our startup three decades ago producing small sedans to the three different light trucks we build today, our associates continue to demonstrate the skills needed for high quality and flexible manufacturing,” said Tim Myers, East Liberty Auto Plant Manager. “I’m proud of the commitment of our team to take on new challenges to meet the needs of our customers.”

The 2017 Acura MDX now includes many new features and technologies, such as the AcuraWatch suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. These are now offered as standard equipment on all 2017 MDX models, a first in the luxury SUV segment.

East Liberty Plant
More than 2,300 employees staff the East Liberty Plant. The plant employs 2,350 technicians and has the annual capacity to manufacture 240,000 passenger cars and light trucks. The 2.8 million square foot plant started production in December 1989.

Acura Debuts the 2018 TLX A-Spec in Pikes Peak Open

Acura will have a fleet of vehicles taking part in the Pikes Peak Open. The turbocharged, 500-horsepower 2018 TLX A-Spec will compete in the exhibition class. The TLX GT will once again compete in the Pikes Peak Open class.

If you’d like to test drive the luxury counterparts of these cars, come to CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas where we have a complete inventory of Acura new cars. This is the sixth consecutive year that Acura will race vehicles in the Pikes Peak event.

2018 Acura TLX A-Spec Racing Debut
The Pikes Peak Acura TLX A-Spec has been modified for this hill climb course. Custom engine software and tuning was done in-house by a team of North American Honda R&D engineers. In addition, all luxury appointments were removed from the inside to reduce weight. Driver Nick Robinson has run the course for several years, winning the motorcycle Pikes Peak 250 class in 2014. Last year, Robinson won the Time Attack 2 Production class, driving the 2017 NSX.

Acura TLX GT Returns to Competition
The all-wheel drive TLX GT race car features the same twin-turbo V6 motor setup used in the Pirelli World Challenge series. It has been tuned on multiple levels to accommodate the elevation changes of Pikes Peak. The TLX GT will be driven by Peter Cunningham of RealTime Racing who has been racing Acuras since 1992. This is Cunningham’s first Pikes Peak race. He has won 14 professional drivers’ championships in a variety of disciplines including road racing, ice racing and performance rallying.

“I’ve always wanted to race with Acura at Pikes Peak. It’s a challenge I’ve never done,” said Cunningham.  “I think we have a great opportunity with the Acura TLX GT and look forward to seeing how it competes on the hill.”

Say Hello To Green Car Journal’s 2017 Luxury Green Car of the Year

CardinaleWay Acura is proud to announce that our NSX was named Green Car Journal’s “2017 Luxury Green Car of the Year.” This second generation NSX was up against other contenders in its class, such as the Mclaren, BMW and Porsche. Once you see this complicated, user friendly, tech driven sport hybrid, you’ll know why it was awarded its new title.

 

The Meaning of “Green”

The term “Green” might mean something different and be more broad than what you might think. It can especially mean multiple things in the automotive world of critique and design. It is not always defined in ZERO carbon emissions or innovative fuel efficiency. Our NSX, however, excels at both of these when compared to others in the elevated segment. The track to “Green” takes time rather than “leaps and bounds” when it comes to the world of future manufacturing and automotive design.

 

What Makes The NSX Stand Out

Ron Coga, Green Car Journal’s publisher, was astonished at how polished the #NSX drove on the street in “normal” mode. Our Acura manufacturer made sure that the supercar performs just as well on the road as it does on the track. It definitely has two personalities. Ron notes the interior cabin as being supportive yet comfortable, surprisingly quiet and not restrictive as one might expect in a supercar.

 

Come See The NSX At CardinaleWay

If you want to get a first hand feel of the NSX under your feet, head on over to see us at CardinaleWay Acura. Our outstanding Sales Team will assist you in finding your dream vehicle. Visit www.cardinalewayacura.com for specials and additional finance information. We look forward to showing you what the best in Nevada Acura dealership is all about!

New Acura Experience at Sundance 2017

Acura 2

CardinaleWay Acura is excited to share what our Acura manufacturer debuted at the #Sundance Film Festival. It was a unique virtual driving experience called “Mood Roads.” This was the seventh year Acura was the official vehicle of the festival and we couldn’t be prouder.

What This Experience Was All About

The world is certainly your mood ring in this one-of-a-kind psychedelic looking pod. The virtual driving experience used brainwave technology to dive into 30 of the user’s cognitive, emotional and physical senses to create a custom encounter. The color, music and landscape adapted to fit the mood of its user. Acura bragged about “Mood Roads” as “a highly personal 90-second journey with no two experiences being identical.” We saw the teaser video and 100% agree!

 

The Inspiration Of The Experience

Jon Ikeda, our General Manager and Vice President of Acura said, “The Sundance Film Festival is both a platform for groundbreaking filmmaking and a showcase of innovative film technology, and the Acura ‘Mood Roads’ experience offers the tech-minded audience a unique merging of automotive and virtual technology they have never experienced before.” The experience was inspired by our NSX supercar’s SH-AWD system. Each ride was uniquely designed with diverse sound effects influenced by not only the NSX, but other Acura vehicles, as well.

 

Other Attractions At The Festival Village

In addition to the Virtual Reality Pod, we saw a full-size NSX ice sculpture and a relaxation lounge. Our favorite aspect at the Village was the Acura Studio. Mounted in the press junket space was the hood of an NSX, which Acura encourages celebrities to sign. An auction of the hood is planned to benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

 

Come See Us At CardinaleWay Acura

If you weren’t able to make it to Sundance this year, you can still see an out-of-this-world NSX in our showroom. Your experience at CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas will put you in a great mood, much like being at Sundance. Visit our website at www.cardinalewayacura.com for more about our new and preowned vehicles.

December Acura Sales Records At All Time High

acura logo 2

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. reports that both Honda & Acura vehicles ended 2016 at a record high. Breaking all-time annual sales records, the numbers rose 6.4% from 2015’s record. Combined, the trucks nabbed not only a new monthly, but also yearly record, rising 17.4% in December and 5.6% in all of 2016.

 

In 2016 the Acura manufacturer annual sales were 161,360. In December, Acura sales were up 1.9% over the same month in 2015. Car and truck totals were 17,148 combined. Our trucks, however, gained 8.9%. For the third year in a row, Acura truck sales exceeded 100,000. With sales of 12,188 in December, #Acuratrucks record the best month in the manufacturer’s history. The midsize RDX gained 20.3% in December with 5,945 vehicles sold and 2.6% for the year with 52,361 sold; best-ever totals. Our popular MDX saw its best sales month of the year and for the fifth straight year exceeded 50,000 units. It remains the all-time best-selling luxury three-row SUV in America.

 

In the sedan category, the RLX made a significant gain in December and TLX sales were up, as well. December 2016 was the best month yet for our second-generation NSX, with 68 supercars sold.

 

Jon Ikeda, who is vice president and general manager of our Acura division said “With Acura trucks leading the way and the TLX performing strongly in a challenging market for sedans, we were able to finish our 30th anniversary year on a strong note. We’re excited to carry this momentum, with a strong future vision for Acura, into the new year.”

 

We certainly agree with Jon and look forward to contributing to record breaking numbers in 2017. Check out a complete inventory of our vehicles at www.cardinalewayacura.com.

The NSX Returns After A 12 Year Absence

acura logo 2

 

Head to the casino in style in our all new 2017 Acura NSX. This over the top supercar combines electric power technology and our latest engine with sports-car handling, all while boasting an exquisite futuristic design. Our newest Acura manufacturer family member definitely gives its competitors a run for their money.

 

It’s safe to say that if you show up in the #2017NSX you will have all eyes on you. With only 3.7” of ground clearance, passengers will feel like they’re falling when they sink into the low, sculpted seats. Get ready to enjoy 42.8” of legroom and 38.3” of headroom. This beauty certainly doesn’t blend in at 87.3 inches wide.

 

The NSX is a gasoline-powered, high performance, fuel-efficient sports car that does not disappoint. Drivers get 573 horsepower and 476 foot-pounds of torque with the 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V6. You can find your engine behind the seats and it works in tandem with the electric motors. Whether you plan on taking a cruise through Sin City or test out its top speeds at the Motor Speedway, the NSX will feel quick and responsive under your feet.

 

Our customers will be happy to hear the 2017 NSX avoided the Federal Government’s gas guzzler tax. We also see a 17% improvement in the new model when it comes to mpg. It has been rated at 22 miles per gallon for highway driving and 21 mpg in the city.

 

Acura NSX

 

You may make a grand statement, but the 2017 NSX comes at a hefty price. Although its one of the lower priced sports cars of its kind, the suggested retail price is still a whopping $157,800. If you decide on upgrading your new toy with carbon-ceramic brake rotors or carbon fiber pieces, expect to fork over more than $200,000.

 

Think you’re ready for 191 mph? Come see this gem in our CardinaleWay Acura showroom or visit www.cardinalewayacura.com for our full vehicle inventory list. We can’t wait to show you why we are the best in Nevada Acura dealer!

The NSX Is Back…And Beautiful

Acura NSX 2

 Once upon a time we loved the Acura NSX.  And now we get to even more.  Because it delivers the sharp handling, superior performance and driver-focused cockpit that only Acura can deliver.

 

This is a true sportscar, although both novice and experienced drivers will be able to handle it.  It has an impressive hybrid engine/electric motor combination that delivers strong acceleration.  But you get high fuel economy, as well. And when you get behind the wheel, you get great forward visibility and the most comfortable ride ever.

 

This is a much more complex machine that the NSX of old.  It’s got all-wheel drive, a twin-turbo V6 and a trio of electric motors that all add up to a full gasoline/electric hybrid experience.  

 

Let’s start with the chassis.  It’s a solid mix of aluminum and steel, underpinned with a double-wishbone front and multilink rear suspension with MR variable dampers all around.  You’ll find that carbon fiber is sparingly employed in the structure, and mostly used for optional cosmetic dress-up items in the engine bay and cabin.  It

s got a 3.5-liter V6 and nine speed transmission that’s easy to drive quickly every day, accelerating from 0-60 mph in a mere 3.0 seconds.
