Our buddies over at Jalopnik have procured some photos of some guy who might win the prize of "most defensive prototype engineer" for his brave yet not-so-successful use of a high-powered flashlight last night. Oh, but also, there's a new Acura crossover in the photo, or so we're told. We just see a funny looking thing covered with black cloth. Anyway, the new Acura was spied during night testing, and the photographer who snagged the pictures is claiming that this will be Acura's answer to sleek crossovers like the BMW X6 or the Infiniti FX. Furthermore, the first TL mules were spied in similar fashion this time last year, so the photographer predicts the new vehicle will be out by next fall. Now that this plan is out in the open, Acura's going to need bigger flashlights.
