Acura Precision Concept debuts at Pebble Beach
The Precision Concept shown at Pebble Beach gives a hint of where Acura design is going with seamless transition of materials
The Acura Precision Concept was chosen as one of the featured models on the Concept Lawn at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday.
Developed by the Acura Design Studio in California as a dynamic expression of Acura’s ‘Precision Crafted Performance’ brand DNA, the Acura Precision Concept points the way toward a bolder, more distinctive future for Acura design.
The Acura Precision Concept also showcases the Acura’s new diamond pentagon grille, which was rapidly applied to the redesigned 2017 Acura MDX.
A key design theme, dubbed “quantum continuum,” is seen in the seamless transition of materials and structure from the exterior to the interior of the vehicle, which is further highlighted by the absence of a b-pillar.
The large door rocker panel flows into the interior side sill, transitioning into a cantilever for the floating rear seats.
The rear centre high-mounted stoplight becomes an architecture element piercing the rear glass and then flowing down to help form the structure for the metal airfoil shape of the rear headrests.
The driver’s space is highlighted by a compact, race-inspired, sports steering wheel with paddle shifters and Integrated Dynamics System (IDS) controls, a floating center meter, a driver’s head-up display, a cantilevered center stack and an ultra-wide, thin and curved center display screen.
