Embargo Emschmargo: More on the Acura TL Type S

AutoWeek has fully outed the 2007 Acura Type S, with the go-ahead from Acura, we presume, way ahead of its originally scheduled reveal date of September 1. Last week, if you'll recall, the Boston Globe accidentally broke the publication embargo, effectively opening the online floodgates for news of the Type S's return. As we mentioned earlier, the Type-S — the badge is back after a three-year absence — gets a new 3.5-liter V6 that produces 286 hp and 256 lb.-ft of torque, a firmer suspension and interior and exterior tweaks. That's a jump from the base model's 3.2-liter mill that generates 258 hp. The Type S also gets a new five-speed automatic transmission with a choice of paddle shifters or six-speed close-ratio manual. More pics after the jump.
