I guess it's their version of Motomachi "hand-built." With a hefty price increase over standard.

I saw a normal TLX Type S out and about recently. The deep blue was amazing. It had a lovely glow or shine and looked lighter and brighter in real life than in pictures.

Spending so much money to build a factory to manufacture a supercar that hardly anybody wants, and now that the 2nd gen NSX is dead, they decided to use that factory to assemble some of their existing models and charging a hefty price tag for those cars, mainly so this factory and its workforce doesn't just go to waste, also probably to save their own face or whatever that's left of it.

IMO this has to be one of Honda's biggest bruh moments they've ever done.

Pretty good point Air. I’m still baffled why they don’t take this car, the Integra, or give it a new name and make an Acura badged CTR with their wonderful SH-AWD system. Throw in one of their outstanding 6MT’s in it (best feel out there IMO) and wow that would be a great car.

Then I imagine Honda doing a compact hatch with the CTR engine, SH-AWD, and their slick transmission and wonder why!!!!! Is what it is. Honda sure can make a great hatch if they want to. I’ve owned them. Own their SH-AWD now, so mix and match their engines, transmissions, and all wheel drive system and they could kill it. But we keep getting stuff like this. SMH

That would be sick, but I don't even remember the last time Honda attempt to make a manual transmission production car with AWD. It's weird to me, they have the technology but the use their SH-AWD on their CUVs and on an underpowered and overweight sedan.

Well...it was also on the "beak" generation TL, which could also be looked at as overweight and underpowered (3.7 V6 though...)

I hear a lot of people saying this but can the manual transmission even be made to mount to the SH-AWD system?

granted I’ve never even driven a car with SH-AWD but wouldn’t it always end up being a front biased system due to the K20 being designed to accept a transaxle

There was manual SH-FWD but I don’t think there has ever been a manual SH-AWD.

All SH-AWD are all front biased, with transverse mounted engines. (Except NSX)
