After being absent at the SEMA Show for 6 years, Acura now makes its comeback with the supercharged ILX "Street Build" project based on the all-new 2013 ILX luxury compact sedan. To create this supercharged 2013 Acura ILX "Street Build" project car, Evasive Motorsports got an ILX luxury sedan and gave it an Acura Genuine Accessories aero kit and a series of aftermarket modifications meant to offer a fun, everyday vehicle that’s tastefully built.
Mike Accavitti, Vice President of National Marketing Operations for American Honda Motor Co., Inc., said that the ILX has premium standard features and sporty dynamics. Priced from $25,900, the 2013 Acura ILX "Street Build" project car is aimed at attracting younger buyers to the luxury market.
He added that the ILX project cars brought to SEMA illustrates how much appeal this platform has on fans, driving the new model’s momentum. Evasive Motorsports built the Acura ILX "Street Build" to attract a serious tuner by using only parts that improve the experience without compromising drivability.
The output of the 2.4-liter Inline-4 has been boosted to 250 wheel horsepower – the result of the use of a 2013 ILX 6-Speed Manual with Premium Package, a supercharger kit from CT Engineering and an ECU tune with Hondata’s FlashPro.
It gets a throaty exhaust note from a prototype SP Elite exhaust sourced from Greddy. The exterior of this vehicle is enhanced with the Acura Genuine Accessories aero kit accompanied with a set of 19-inch Volk G25 wheels covered in Pirelli P Zero tires. Due to the Tein Street Advance coilovers, the ILX gets an aggressive stance while providing damping force adjustability.
