Honda / Acura SEMA 2013 Booth Tour

Posted by: Kenny Chan onNovember 10th, 2013

In addition to unveiling the all new 2014 Honda Civic Coupe, Honda had a lot to show off to the visitors of their booth at SEMA. Honda Performance Development (HPD), the racing arm of American Honda Motor Co. showed off its new range of HPD Street Performance products fitted to a couple vehicles in the booth. The Supercharged CR-Z pictured above features a near endless list of HPD parts including an air-to-air intercooler, high flow fuel injectors, air filters, sport exhaust, sport dampers, coilovers, enlarged brakes and 18″ wheels wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport rubber.

They also had an HPD Honda Civic with a full street graffiti themed wrap. Modifications included the following parts from the HPD parts bin: a big brake kit, performance springs, 25.4mm rear anti-roll bar, 18″ wheels and a K24Z7 racing engine. This is a preview of some potential new street performance accessories that may be trickling down to consumers developed from HPD racing experience.

Completing the HPD display is a purpose-built HPD Honda Civic Si Race car. This Civic features competition equipment developed at HPD including a sealed K24Z7 racing engine, cold air intake, Accusump oil pressure accumulator, stainless steel exhaust header, suspension parts including camber plates, bushings, brake rotors and an adjustable rear anti-roll bar. The Civic is eligible for a variety of series, including Sports Car Club of America, International Motor Sports Association, Canadian Automobile Sport Clubs and National Auto Sport Association racing.

It’s only a year old so not surprising that there was also an Acura RLX with some tasteful mods making an appearance in the Honda booth. Rounding out the rest of the booth were a pair of matte-wrapped vehicles, a matte orange Acura ILX and a matte red Honda Accord. Oh, and how can I forget about the minivan? Not just any minivan, but a Bisimoto built a 1000 horsepower Honda Odyssey slammed to the carpet. Ok, it’s actually about 1029 horsepower but really, why continue counting once you hit 1000?
