1200 × 800
The Honda exhibit at the 2019 SEMA Show will celebrate the company’s 60th anniversary in the U.S., Honda’s longstanding commitment to the enthusiast community, and the accessorization opportunities of Honda’s line-up today—helping light the way for owners to indulge their personalities and lifestyles. At center stage is a pair of 2020 Honda CR-Vs – refreshed gasoline variant and all-new hybrid – accessorized for outdoor enthusiasts. Alongside the adventure CR-Vs is a 2019 Honda Passport fresh from the American Rally Association circuit, a Honda Ridgeline pickup featuring Honda Factory Performance (HFP) concept accessories, and an accessorized Honda Talon 1000R side-by-side.
 
Paying tribute to American Honda’s 60th anniversary is a faithful replica of the red-and-white Chevy Apache pickup used by Honda motorcycle salespeople in the early 1960s, alongside a 1968 Honda S800 Coupe “Outlaw” sports car, a modified version of one of Honda’s very first production cars. Also featured will be a Civic Si heavily modified for competition in Formula Drift, two Super Street Civic Si project cars from 1999 and today, and the winner of this year’s Honda Super Tuner Legends Series, a component of the annual Hot Wheels™ Legends Tour competition – a 1972 Honda N600 with its rear wheels driven by the engine from a Honda VFR motorcycle.

Rally Passport
The Rally Passport was built by Honda R&D associates in Ohio as a private, after-hours project to showcase the performance potential and help elevate the off-road capability of the all-new 2019 Passport. The Rally Passport was built to compete in stage rally competition in the Limited 4WD class of the American Rally Association. The vehicle in its first event placed 2nd in class and 12th overall out of 75 total competitors in the Southern Ohio Forest Rally. Modifications were mostly for the sake of race safety and included a roll cage and safety equipment per ARA regulations, Maxxis RAZR MT Tires on Braid Wheels, Carbotech brake pads, skid plates in the front and rear, and a hand-operated hydraulic brake.

1968 Honda S800 Coupe “Outlaw”
The custom 1968 Honda S800 Coupe “Outlaw” built by producer and actor Daniel Wu is based on an original S800, one of the very first production cars Honda ever made. While Wu had contemplated an engine swap, instead he had the original stock engine completely rebuilt to new condition and added a custom exhaust system made by GReddy, with the exhaust pipes exiting the middle of the vehicle. The custom body kit was made by Pandem’s Kei Miura to give the S800 a more aggressive look with custom flares, a custom air dam, and a suspension that’s 2 inches lower than stock. The fender flares broaden the stance by about 4 inches, supported by widened stock steel wheels wrapped in Toyo R888R tires. A custom interior contrasts against the exterior, with red leather seating and the original S800 steering wheel also accented in red leather.

Honda Tuning 2018 Civic Si Project by Super Street Magazine
The Honda Tuning Civic Si project was designed to test multiple off-the-shelf aftermarket products in order to establish just how much tuning potential the 10th-generation Civic offers. Super Street editors addressed areas that the average enthusiast would, with the goal of all modifications being 100-percent reversible. Modifications to the Si powertrain included an intake and intercooler kit, an ECU re-flash, complete front-to-rear exhaust system and a complete turbo kit with a new downpipe. Interior modifications include lower-positioned seats with more pronounced thigh and side bolsters, an adjustable length and height shifter, and adjustable gas pedal spacer.

Jeanneret Racing and Olson Kustom Works Civic Si Drift Car
The 10th-gen based Civic Si Drift Car built by Jeanneret Racing and Olson Kustom Works begins with the front-wheel drive Civic chassis, and transforming it into a race-only Formula Drift vehicle. This required extensive modifications to the chassis to turn it from a front-wheel drive car into a rear-wheel drive one. Engine modifications not only included re-orienting the K24 engine to drive the rear wheels, but also to bring it up to a competition-spec 926 horsepower at the wheels. Chassis, engine and body modifications were performed in-house in conjunction with Jeanneret Racing and Olson Kustom Works.

Super Street 2000 Civic Si Challenge Winner
Winner of the Civic Si Challenge in 2000, this 1999 Honda Civic Si was extensively modified by Super Street magazine, and faithfully preserved by American Honda as a representation of tuner styles of the early 21st century. Organized by Honda, the Civic Si Challenge asked participants to modify a stock Civic Si with a $10,000 budget and turn it into a show, drag, or race car, or a combination of all three. After winning, the Super Street Honda Civic Si was duplicated by Mattel™ as a 1:18-scale model.
