The display is highlighted by the debut of the Galpin Auto Sports Acura TLX, which features custom exterior styling and chassis modifications by Galpin Auto Sports. The Galpin Auto Sports TLX will be joined by the twin-turbo TLX GT Race Car, jointly developed by Honda Performance Development (HPD) and RealTime Racing, and a 2015 Acura TLX with the Genuine Acura Accessory package.

"The Acura brand has always been about a luxury performance experience, which, of course, includes the look and feel of the product," said Dave Marek, Global Creative Director of Acura Design. "We collaborated with Galpin Auto Sports to help us have some fun in speaking to this fundamental part of Acura DNA and we're excited about what they have helped us create."

Acura's 2014 SEMA Show display will be taking a big step up in prestige with the premiere of a two-tiered exhibit space for show guests. Acura will be hosting media and other special guests on the second tier of the exhibit throughout SEMA Show press days. RealTime Racing's Peter Cunningham also will be in the Acura booth on November 4 with the TLX GT racecar that he campaigns in the Pirelli World Challenge series to talk with SEMA Show attendees.
