Someone started a blog detailing his experiences with the new 2013 ILX for the next few weeks. It's obviously a marketing promo but give it a read if your interested.
The ILX Experience « drivetofiveThe ILX Experience
After completing my Drive to Five last November, naturally I started thinking about the day that will inevitably come when it’s time to retire the old Legend from daily duty. Today, I’m 9,000 miles later in my Legend but getting some very exclusive behind-the-scenes perspectives on a brand new and exciting Acura model called the 2013 ILX. I was sitting on the front row at the Acura Press Conference in Detroit at the North American International Auto show when the cover was pulled off the ILX concept car, and I’ve since been able to sit behind the wheel of the production version. It’s a sleek ride!
Acura has graciously invited me to spend some time with the design teams and executives at Headquarters who are responsible for bringing this new car to life. I also got to see, touch, and even drive a pre-production ILX. As I’d shared in a recent post, in the coming months I’m going to share this exclusive look at what’s new from Acura with all of you. I’ll be relaying my discoveries on a special Acura Facebook page called “ILX Experience“.
- The first tab, ILX Access, will chronicle my encounters through a series of videos. Already posted there are a few videos from my trip to the Detroit Auto Show in January, as well as meetings in Torrance, CA with Jon Ikeda (Acura Chief Designer), and John Norman (Acura Interior Designer).
- The second tab will provide more details about the ILX itself including pictures and technical information.
- The third tab gives a little background on me, and
- The fourth (Tyson’s ILX Blog) will parallel Drive to Five with some insights into my observations about the new car. The Facebook portal also serves as a Q&A for anyone who wants to interact with me by asking a question about the ILX.
