The auto show will be here in NYC in a few weeks and I am already lining up the obamas I’m going to fall thru. Nothing goes better with a car than copious amounts of alcohol. I don’t support driving drunk tho’. It’s better to pull over so that you don’t spill your shit.
The best party so far looks to be the unveiling of the Acura concept crossover, the ZDX. This car is the blending of sports coupe speed, sedan interior space and the roadmanship of an SUV. Plus its an Acura and their track record is nearly flawless. I remember when they first dropped the MDX.
The MDX was the answer to the BMW X5 and the Lexus RX series. It’s a mid-size SUV with decent power (V6-V8) and superior handling. The MDX was my dream whip for several years. From driving Acuras previously I knew the dynamic nature of Honda engineering.
Acura pushed the performance level upwards with the production of the RDX. This whip is smaller than the MDX but it handles way better and looks a bit sportier. The RDX designers definitely took some cues from Subaru because the RDX reminds me of the Dakar rally cars that Subaru has made popular.
The ZDX is the most aggressive looking Acura concept SUV to date. This car looks like its built for getting triple digits on the Interstate. The idea is to give the SUV the pleasures of a roadster. The typical height of the sport utility vehicle is lowered a bit, but the stance still puts you above the road and above a sedan or coupe.
The speed bubble profile of the Acura ZDX reminds me of my new favorite dream whip, the BMW X6. Look at the interior and tell me if that doesn’t look like a sports coupe cockpit [ll]? The ZDX is definitely going to be a cockpit for some lucky ladies. With a ticket price of 45 stacks I’m sure that whoever cops this whip will have a ThunderDome allowance. Acura stays winning because Honda will… Not… Lose.
