Acura Santa Barbara is excited to share that Acura unveiled three customized sedans this month at the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas. The sedans garnered a lot of attention from Acura fans at the show and here at Acura Santa Barbara, we are excited to share the details. The three models that were revealed are:
- Acura RLX VIP Sedan (created by Evasive Motorsports)
- Acura RLX Urban Luxury Sedan (created by MAD Industries)
- Acura Street Performance ILX (created by MAD Industries)
Acura was excited to create customer versions of their popular sedans. Enthusiasts were impressed by the innovative designs. All three were well received by the crowds at this year’s Las Vegas show.
Acura engaged MAD Industries and Evasive Motorsports to do the work. Both companies are located here in our own backyard at Santa Barbara Auto Group in Southern California. The companies used the Acura sedans as the platforms for their innovative after-market designs to create even more dynamic custom cars.
The 2014 Acura RLX VIP Sedan
The first car to be unveiled was created by Evasive Motorsports, the 2014 Acura RLX VIP Sedan. This car was designed to be equally appropriate for the daily commute or a night on the town. Many of our California drivers will appreciate the updated design aspects including the customer carbon fiber front bumper lip and vents, a modified rear bumper, and fabricated exhaust system with titanium tips. The car also featured 21-inch Advan F15 wheels. The interior even featured custom Jordan-Brand inspired elephant print for added luxury and style.
The 2014 Acura RLX Urban Luxury Sedan
The 2014 Acura RLX Urban Luxury sedan, by MAD Industries was also designed for drivers looking for the ultimate in performance for everyday driving. The car was wrapped in 3M 1080 Scotchprint wrap film, in brushed black metallic with gloss black accents. Silver 22-inch wheels added an aggressive element. The interior was made to match featuring 3M brushed black metallic film door and trim accents.
The 2014 Acura Street Performance ILX
The Acura Street Performance ILX was designed by MAD Industries. It was meant to meet the needs of drivers looking for a fun car that feels at home on city streets or curvy mountain passes. The car was wrapped in matte copper metallic and acceted by matte charcoal metallic for a dynamic aesthetic. A set of 19-inch TSW Max wheels set off the exterior. At Santa Barbara Auto Group, our favorite touch was the supercharger kit from CT Engineering and ECU tune with Hondata’s FlashPro to help the ILX’s 2.4 liter inline-4 pump out 250 wheel horsepower.
