For the second time in history, Acura Canada is offering their customers a new limited edition package which began selling on May 10, 2010 for the 2010 Acura TL. The first time this package was offered was when the TL Type S was given a cosmetic revamping in 2003 with a similar A-spec package. Acura, Honda’s luxury brand, will sell the new TL A-Spec package with a price tag of C$51,290.
The main feature on the new A-Spec package is the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) which includes all of the features of the TL SH-AWD Technology Package trim. It can be nated to either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed automatic transmission.
Compared to a standard TL model, the A-Spec package adds: 19-inch alloy wheels with special summer performance tires and full aero kit skirt package with front, side and rear skirts. The front and rear of the car are finished off with a midnight chrome grille and rear piece. The last little bit of flair is the ’A-Spec’ badge and ’A-Spec’ floor mats.
No mention is made to the number of packages that will be made of the Acura TL A-spec, but if they follow the mold created by the Canadian A-spec back in ’03 then they would be offering them in about 800 units.
