Sema Honda CR-Z

The 2010 SEMA Show will host the presentation of twelve modified 2011 Honda CR-Z sport hybrid coupes, which were aimed to demonstrate new opportunities for vehicle personalization among the import tuner community. Bruce Smith, vice president of Parts Operations for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. officially announced that drivers were able to achieve the impressive efficiency of a hybrid car through the CR-Z sport hybrid coupe, without compromising the fun that many demanded from a sporty car.
Honda's plans include the launch of a limited-edition MUGEN accessory kit in the spring of 2011 and until then, a 2011 CR-Z featuring MUGEN accessories will also be displayed at the SEMA event. The limited-edition will integrate only 300 complete kits which will, in their turn, include a front grille, a full MUGEN body kit, sport mats, 17-inch "XJ" aluminum wheels, a billet aluminum oil-filler cap together with a unique black aluminum shift knob.
Wishing to demomnstrate the potential of the CR-Z for both street and racing performance, Honda's North American racing company, HPD, will reveal at the 2010 SEMA two concept vehicles represented by the HPD CR-Z Racer and the CR-Z Hybrid R Concept. Many performance enhancements are shared by both vehicles beginning with serious racing capability and delivering an estimated combined 200 HP and 175 lb-ft. of torque, an upgraded IMATM hybrid system, a turbocharger, aerodynamic components,upgraded brakes together with limited-slip differential.
Furthermore, Honda is going to display two vehicles in order to demonstrate currently available Honda Genuine Accessories, one of them being equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear diffuser, side, front lip and tailgate spoilers, while a 2010 Accord Coupe will be melding a distinctive appearance with its dealer-installed Honda Factory PerformanceTM.
The Accord CrossTour HFP Concept is going to be displayed as a demonstration concept, incorporating 19-inch HFP wheels, a full HFP body kit and front grille, HFP sport suspension, a special black-out door sash trim and color-matched door handles.
