Acura Just Restored Ludacris’ 1993 Acura Legend
Acura has unveiled a restored Legend owned by Ludacris at the 2015 SEMA Show.
Surprisingly, the restored Acura Legend looks fairly tame and didn’t get a heavy dosage of the Fast and Furious treatment. Instead, Acura stuck to bringing the 1993 Legend back to its original form sporting a custom Warm Cashmere with Ice Pearl paint scheme, a factory color with some added sparkle. Larger 18-inch Rays wheels paired to Bridgestone Potenza rubber in a 215/40/18 size can be found on all four corners while braking performance has been upgraded with six-piston front calipers and four-piston rears. Inside, the Japanese automaker installed a Pioneer AVIC 8/ONEX sound system along with Apple CarPlay. H&R springs contributed to the project by lowering the Legend by two inches while Eibach outfitted the sedan with a camber kit to keep those Bridgestone tires in check. To ensure the Legend is comfortable to drive for years to come, Acura also did some frame, body and chassis work.
Along with the restored Legend, Acura also brought a pair of ILX sedans and the new 2017 NSX to Las Vegas. The headline vehicle was built by Galpin Auto Sports boasting custom body work including a new front bumper with accent front splitter, custom rear diffuser with JDM Fog Light, a custom exhaust exit and a rear spoiler. A brilliant Sunburst Yellow paint is contrasted by Shark Gray accents using a three-stage candy paint process. Suspension modifications include RS-R Sports*i coilovers while the rear features a Borla exhaust system with custom dual tips. The gold and gray color scheme continues inside the cabin with gold contrast stitching throughout the Katzkin perforated Barracuda leather inserts.
The other 2016 Acura ILX is packed with an Acura Genuine Accessory Package featuring an aero kit, 18-inch diamond-cut wheels, decklid spoiler, all-season floor mats, illuminated door sill trim, chrome door trim, LED fog lights, rear bumper applique and remote engine starter. The vehicle is finished in Slate Silver Metallic and customers can order any of the accessories through their Acura dealers.
