Mustang would be my choice as well, if I'm spending my money on a 2-door V8 American car.

Yeah I've heard that the GT350 is also similarly crappy interior....but of course when you're looking at those kinds of cars you are essentially paying for the motor/chassis/suspension and the interior is just tolerable.

The interior on my Mustang was fine at $33K. At $60K for GT350 it’s not even close to good enough.

Roll the windows down in the GT350. It's good enough.

https://www.motor1.com/news/358543/a...x-pmc-edition/

Acura has released the official pricing on the limited run 2020 TLX PMC Edition just three months after its announcement at the 2019 New Your Auto Show. Only 360 units have been produced and each one will set you back a cool $50,945 (including $1,995 destination and handling). The 2020 Acura TLX PMC Edition sits at the very top of the TLX range, and is produced at the brand's Ohio-based Performance Manufacturing Center.

That same performance center is around 200,000 square feet in size and houses teams of handpicked Acura technicians from around the world. More importantly, this is the same facility that produces every Acura NSX sold around the world. Acura says that you can expect the same high levels of finish, expertise, and craftsmanship for their supercar, in the TLX PMC.

Under the hood is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission with all-wheel drive. Exclusive touches to this trim include Valencia Red Pearl paint, black roof and door handles, gloss black 19-inch wheels, body-colored side mirrors, and dark chrome exhaust finishers. Jewel-eye LED headlights and fog lights are also standard.

On the inside, the TLX PMC Edition gets black Milano leather seats with Alcantara inserts, black piping and red stitching on said seats, door panels, and armrest. You also get the A-Spec steering wheel with perforated black leather, red stitching, and metal paddle shifters. Each car is individually numbered and is signified by a special serial plaque on the lower console. Apple Carplay and Android Auto are integrated, and a premium sound system with 10 speakers takes care of audio. You also get wireless phone charging and a surround view camera system as standard.

All 360 units will be be delivered to dealerships across the U.S. starting this week.

So, aside from better baint (paint) quality and being "hand-built"...why am I paying this much for a TLX?

By the time the TT comes out, it will probably make around 340 HP and the marketing team will be all over it claiming "this is the most powerful non-hybird Acura ever".

"The lightest vehicle architecture Acura has ever produced, using cutting edge materials to keep the weight at bay. Sure, it only has 340BHP, but with our advanced materials it's like it has 500BHP. We will still give it all season tires, tho. Because we listen to our customers"

"Starting at an unbelievable price of $60,959"

That's exactly what they're trying to do, tell high end luxury buyers this is the car to want....


Meanwhile Lexus has entered the luxury yacht market with it's 2nd entry.

Different customers, for sure, between a $10k (new) Mirage & the $52k TLX PMC.
But, true, I bet these PMC cars sell out quick.

I'm not a big fan of that pushed-in wedge near the bottom of the doors, but maybe it just looks funky in these renderings.
