Default Acura Unveils Trio of Vehicles at the New York International Auto Show

All-New Acura Light Truck Lineup Takes Center Stage

New York - Apr 12 —

Acura unveiled an unprecedented trio of new
vehicles at the New York International Auto Show today, including the show stopping
world debut of the MD-X Concept SUV. In addition, a production version of the
all-new RDX performance luxury SUV made its debut, providing an advance preview
of Acura's all-new light truck lineup. Finally, an Acura powered-race
car was unveiled along with the announcement that it would campaign in the 2007
American Le Mans Series (ALMS).

"All three vehicles represent Acura's passion for providing the
best in automotive performance and technology," said John Mendel, senior
vice president, Auto Operations. "From the sporty RDX, to the exciting
MD-X Concept, to the world-class Acura ALMS race car, Acura is moving ahead
of the competition and into the fast lane."

Acura's all-new light truck lineup took center stage with the unveiling
of the MD-X Concept and RDX entry premium SUV. With bold styling, the MD-X Concept
provides a glimpse of the all-new MDX luxury performance SUV, which will go
on sale this fall. The Concept's aggressive design exudes performance
and reflects the SUV's track-tuned development.

The all-new RDX, which features Acura's first turbocharged engine and
the breakthrough Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD™), also
made its debut. Hitting dealerships this summer, the RDX boasts the exceptional
handling of a sports sedan with the utility of a SUV.

Finally, Acura unveiled an Acura-powered race car the company plans to campaign
in the 2007 American Le Mans Series. The ALMS draws on the heritage of long-distance
"endurance" sports car racing in both Europe and the United States,
as exemplified by the historic 24 Hours of Le Mans. The 10-race domestic series
includes the 12 Hours of Sebring - a U.S. fixture since 1952 - plus
events at the country's premier road circuits, including Road America,
Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Laguna Seca, Lime Rock Park and Road Atlanta.

ALMS competition features multi-class racing of high-tech sports car prototypes
and production-based Grand Touring machinery, with both factory teams and relentless
privateers battling for victory. State-of-the-art technology and engineering,
ranging from electronics to aerodynamics to fuel efficiency, are key to success
in the ALMS. Manufacturers currently fielding teams include Audi, Porsche, BMW,
Ferrari, Lexus, Aston Martin, and Chevrolet.
