Acura is selling an official new upgrade package to Acura TL buyers in Canada. The 2010 Acura TL A-Spec went on sale this week as a limited edition model for C$51,290 (US$49,985).
The car includes all the features sold with the TL Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) Technology package, which retails for C$48,490 (US$47,257), C$8,500 (US$8,284) over the base level car. Already lined with leather and kitted out with a sat-nav and 10-speaker surround sound stereo, the A-Spec adds 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in performance tires, a dark chrome grille with matching element in the rear, and a full aero kit.
Aerodynamic changes can be found at the front and rear apron, as well as the side skirts. A-Spec logos can be found at the back, as well as on the floor mats. Each unit comes with a 3.7-liter VTEC V6 engine producing 305 horsepower (227 kW, 309 PS), with a choice of either a five-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission.
Acura did not disclose how many A-Spec cars would be produced, and if previously-purchased vehicles could be retrofitted with the package.
