Neal's Fantasy Factory Reimagines a RWD Acura LEGEND Sedan

Neal's latest creation imagines what a long-wheelbase FR sedan based upon the RLX Concept would look like.

Neal's Fantasy Factory Reimagines a RWD Acura LEGEND Sedan
Classic RWD proportions yield a flagship worthy of the "legendary" name.

With all the buzz surrounding the 2013 Accord Sedan, it seems that interest in the coming Acura RLX has fallen by the wayside. Taking some time to look through all of the concept art I created for the RLX GT "Coupe" and the RLX "TOV Edition" back in April, I noticed a certain visual awkwardness coming from trying to hide the problematic proportions of a FWD car: too much front and rear overhang; shortened wheelbase; high cowlings; excessive wheel gaps; too tall of a roofline; pinched fenders behind the front wheels, etc.

I came to the conclusion that no amount of nip and tucking of Acura's original RLX concept would ever be truly satisfying or yield a finished product worthy of a proper flagship sedan, let alone a spiritual successor to Acura's ground-breaking LEGEND Sedan of the 1990's.

Taking inspiration from BMW's 6 Series Gran Coupe, this new interpretation of an Acura flagship sedan is designed with a single purpose: sporting elegance on a clean and well-proportioned, bespoke RWD platform. NSX-type wheels are the only visual cue to advanced hybrid-wizardry within. No compromises. No excuses. No platform sharing. A LEGEND reborn in Black Currant Pearl.
