If it comes to fruition I hope the style 'pops' a little more than that rendering. but MORE IMPORTUNATELY they need up the performance significantly.

They could do so with either a 220+ HP K24 with better head/header/DI and maybe 300-500 more revs? Or better yet: a K22 variant (240hp?) many of us have asked for. Or lastly - maybe it'd be a good candidate for the Type R's turbo'ed engine.

Now all of these performance options would require an LSD - and perhaps add at least PAWS as standard and SHAWD as an option.

PS: Moving forward - ALL ACURAS SHOULD HAVE an OPTION for SHAWD (see Audi)!
