    The Acura is AWD.. which causes more drivetrain power losses so yes, it will feel much less than the 295 ft/lbs of torque my STS had.

    Not to mention the obvious, but a Northstar V8 is going to have a much wider torque curve than a Honda V6. Wider curve = more usuable power.

    So, here was the RL prototype.......

    http://www.cardesignnews.com/autosho...ts/index3.html

    Is it pretty much identical to what the production RL looks like??

    Wow, the prototype is identical to the production model according to the pictures. The prototype appears to have the A-spec suspension.
