Neal's Fantasy Factory dreams of a tighter and tauter Acura TL
 Date: January 25, 2012 23:08
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: TOV Design Director Neal McDaniel
 Credibility Rating: Not Specified


With this radical take on a future Acura TL, Neal tells me he was inspired by Acura's "new 'Man Machine Synergy' strategy where they mention their commitment to deliver an “overwhelmingly” beautiful design."

This proved to be enough motivation to trigger the below TL Hybrid Sport concept. For this particular design, Neal went "digging in their parts bin for some of the best pieces of Acura's design portfolio."

And finally, Neal says "This one is pure fantasy for sure, but until we see a concept model for either the TSX or TL, I will be driving this one in my dreams! In hybrid-exclusive Crystal Aqua..."

Please click on the image below and enjoy.


UPDATE: Neal put together up some exclusive "TOV Designer Series" wallpapers in the following sizes:

1024x768
1400x900
1680x1050
1920x1080
1024x768 (Portrait format for iPad/Tablets)
