700 HP Supercharged Acura TL - (Gridlife, Track) One Take
This video brought to you by Import Bible http://bit.ly/1KHaqgn The third-generation Acura TL is, NSX aside, probably the best looking Acura ever made. They really nailed the formula with that car. It has the right proportions, was built well, and offered solid performance for the time. But this one is different. Packing a fully built, Rotrex supercharged V6 up front, a manual transmission, and suspension and brakes to back it up, this is probably one of if not the fastest street driven Acura TL in the world.
