VTEC.net posted some images of what is supposedly the 2013 Acura sub-TSX. Some people are referring to it as the RSX sedan. But wait a minute, I thought the TSX was a "RSX sedan". Rumor has it that this future model is based off the Civic platform. But wait a minute times two! An Acura based off the Civic?? Isn't that just an Acura CSX?? My head hurts. My little brain is not powerful enough for Honda and Acura's ingenious ideas...

Acura has been selected in the Marvel Comics Universe films as the official car of their fictional law enforcement agency called S.H.I.E.L.D. That relationship continues for The Avengers, so it comes to no surprise that we find Tony Stark in an Acura now instead of the usual Audi R8.
There are lots of rumors flying around for this thing. A popular one I have heard is it's a modified version of the Honda HSV with a hybrid powertrain. The HSV is a front engine, rear-wheel drive vehicle that Honda races in the Super GT. Others have speculated that this car is mid-engine with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. There has also been some assumptions that Acura is using this to debut the production version when the movie releases. All we know for sure is according to an Acura spokesman this open-top sports car that was photographed on the set of The Avengers is "a one-off, fictional car that was made just for the movie and will not be produced." Awww... :(

"The Acura TSX has long been known for its high-revving 4-cylinder engines and sporty driving nature," said Jeff Conrad, vice president of Acura sales. "With the new Special Edition, the TSX becomes even more youthful and sporty in character, furthering its appeal to performance-minded buyers."
The 2012 TSX Special Edition package consists of numerous upgrades to the exterior including a more aggressive front spoiler, a new rear bumper fascia, unique side sills and an exclusive "Special Edition" badge on the trunklid. Finally, the TSX's 17x7.5-inch, 5-spoke aluminum wheels will feature a polished finish with dark grey background, unique to the Special Edition model.
Inside, the TSX Special Edition makes use of sport-minded appointments including exclusive seating surfaces with perforated black Lux Suede® inserts with red backing. Unique red stitching, used for the seats, steering wheel and the shift knob, combines with red lighting for the instrument cluster gauges, overhead lighting and footwell lighting. Adding more appeal to the driver's footwell are aluminum pedal covers with a race-inspired look. Rounding out the Special Edition's interior upgrades is the use of bright silver plating for the steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters along with black headliner material (standard TSX have grey headliner material).
The TSX Special Edition package makes use of Acura's acclaimed K24 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine and will be available with either the close-ratio 6-speed manual or Sequential SportShift 5-speed automatic transmissions. The TSX Special Edition will go on sale in late September and will make its public debut at the Orange County International Auto Show on September 22nd.
Acura offers a full line of technologically advanced performance luxury vehicles through a network of 271 dealers within the United States. The 2012 Acura lineup features six distinctive models including the RL luxury performance sedan, the TL performance luxury sedan, the TSX sports sedan and Sport Wagon, the turbocharged RDX luxury crossover SUV, the award-winning MDX luxury sport utility vehicle and the ZDX four-door sports coupe.
Along with every new Acura, the 2012 TSX is covered by a comprehensive 4-year/50,000 mile new vehicle limited warranty and a 6-year/70,000 miles powertrain limited warranty. Additional benefits include Acura Total Luxury Care® (TLC®), which provides free 24-hour roadside assistance, concierge service and trip routing.
Acura is beyond confused. We got Type-S models and now an SE model? And all the SE model has is a bunch of red color and Lux Suede seats. I don't get it.
