New Acura ILX and RLX Receive SEMA Show Treatments

Honda's near-premium division Acura has yanked the covers off three customized sedans at the SEMA aftermarket show, including the RLX VIP Sedan crafted by Evasive Motorsports, the RLX Urban Luxury Sedan and Street Performance ILX, both made by MAD Industries.

The most colorful of the three is the ILX Street Performance that's wrapped in matte copper metallic and accented by matte charcoal metallic 3M Scotchprint 1080 film (a common theme among the group's SEMA cars as Honda did the same). It also features an aero kit, 19-inch TSW Max wheels, a lowered suspension and most importantly, a supercharger kit that bumps the 2.4-liter unit's output to 250 wheel-horsepower.

On a more serious note, the RLX Urban Luxury sports some discrete upgrades including a decklid spoiler, Silver 22-inch Niche wheels wrapped in 265/30ZR-22 Nitto Invo tires, and brushed metallic trims from, you guessed it, 3M.

If you're looking for a more louder version of the RLX, Acura has the VIP edition that brings a custom carbon fiber front bumper lip and vents, a modified rear bumper, 21-inch rims wrapped in 245/35ZR-21 rubber, a lowered suspension and fabricated exhaust system with titanium tips. No photos of the interior yet, but Acura said that the cabin is highlighted by "custom neck pillows wrapped in Jordan Brand-inspired elephant print [that] add luxury and style".
