Acura has just unveiled its newest TLX GT race car today at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. While announcing its plans for the race car to compete in the Pirelli World Challenge Championship.

The President of Honda Performance Development and Vice President-Product Planning and Logistics, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., Art St. Cyr says, "the 2015 Acura TLX is a true luxury sport sedan, so it is fitting that the car be raced against several of its natural luxury competitors in the Pirelli World Challenge."

Fitted with a twin-turbocharged version of the V6 engine found in the new TLX sedan, the HPD tuned engine will sufficiently fuel power to all four wheels.

The race car is said to compete amongst iconic legends such as the Lamborghini Gallardo, Porsche 911, Audi R8 LMS, Mercedes SLS and the Nissan GTR.
