Only 30 units of the RDX PMC Edition will be built for the North American market, each bathed in Thermal Orange Pearl paint shared with the electrified NSX supercar.

Exclusive to the RDX PMC Edition are gloss black 20-inch alloy wheels; a body colour grille surround; black chrome exhaust finishers; and gloss-black treatment for the roof, side mirrors and door handles. As with previous PMC Edition models, Acura’s industry leading torque vectoring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) is standard equipment.

The RDX PMC Edition’s Thermal Orange Pearl exterior is complemented on the inside with colour-matched orange stitching for the seats, center console, door panels, steering wheel and floor mats. Mixing A-Spec style with the Platinum Elite’s premium touches, the RDX PMC edition features a 10.5-inch color Head-Up Display, 16-way power Sport Seats trimmed in Ebony Milano leather and Ultrasuede, heated steering wheel and heated outboard rear seats.

Bringing RDX PMC Edition to Life

Once the body-in-white arrives at PMC, each RDX PMC Edition is finished in Thermal Orange Pearl paint, a paint offered on NSX since 2019. Next, a mid-coat of gold and orange mica is applied. Lastly, four layers of clearcoat are applied to protect the finish. The total time in paint, including curing, is five days.

Immediately following the paint process, PMC technicians begin hand assembly, starting with installation of all drivetrain and chassis components, wiring harnesses and electronics. Once completed, the PMC Edition 20-inch wheels, tires, and exterior trim are added. The final step in the process is to fit the vehicle with its interior including an individually numbered serial plate affixed to the RDX’s center console.

After completing the hand assembly process, every RDX PMC Edition undergoes an identical quality control process as NSX, which includes a full electronic systems line-end test, expert wheel alignment, dyno run, water-leak test and final paint examination.
