We’re not sure, but we have a sneaking suspicion this Acura TL Convertible is the result of a dare. Or a bet. Someone probably told the guys at NCE (Newport Convertible Engineering) I bet you can’t drop the top on a TL. So they just had to do it, regardless of how pointless or stupid the end result might be.
Honestly we can’t think of any other reason to chop off the roof of an Acura TL, of all cars, to make a four-seater convertible. The project apparently took them six weeks, and amazingly, it doesn’t void Acura’s original warranty. We find that hard to believe.
The TL keeps its B pillars after becoming a convertible for structural reasons. The car would probably split clean in half if they were to remove it. They do if you want, but then it’ll require much deeper modifications, which is why they don’t recommend it.
The Convertible TL comes with a soft top that looks spectacularly ridiculous when it is up. Or down. No changes have been made to the interior.
