Honda will be there in full force at the upcoming SEMA after-market accessories show in Vegas. It will be showing off a big customized Civic lineup that includes the long-awaited Honda Civic Type R Prototype. In all, Honda will show off nine tuned, accessorized and custom-built Civics at the show and here’s a look at four of them.
2017 Honda Civic Type R Prototype
The radical Honda Civic Type R Prototype builds on the low and wide proportion of the new Civic Hatchback. It’s aggressive, muscular body styling and modifications for better aerodynamic performance.
The exterior is wrapped in a unique highly reflective, finely-grained brushed aluminum-effect finish.
The front end is accentuated with a winged carbon fiber splitter and sporty red accent line. Additional slatted ducts add width and diamond-mesh inserts fill the sculpted air intakes.
Honda’s iconic red “H” badge, which you’ll see on all Type R models, sits on the front grille. There is a new air scoop intake on the hood. Smoked lenses for the LED headlights, indicators and side indicator repeater lights reflect the Type R Prototype’s aggressive look.
Carbon fiber side skirts run the length of the side sills, between 20-inch piano black alloy wheels with red accents and 245-section high-performance tires. A carbon fiber diffuser runs below the wider rear fascia, which frames three fully-functional tailpipes flanked by a pair of directional strakes. The smaller diameter central tailpipe is highlighted in bright metallic red. Model-exclusive vortex generators at the rear edges of the roof point backward towards the rear wing.
2017 Honda Civic Hatchback/Honda Factory Performance Concept
This 2017 Civic Hatchback is outfitted with a Honda Factory Performance accessory concept package. It features custom HFP accessories including deck lid spoiler, brake rotors, carpet floor mats and emblems. Plus, the vehicle sports red underbody spoilers, black wheel lock and wheel lugs and 19-inch HFP alloy wheels.
2016 Honda Civic Coupe / MAD Industries
A MAD Industries Civic comes is bright in blue with turbocharged power. It’s painted in BASF R-M Waterborn System in Aegean Blue and Jet Black, complete with Carbon 2 Carbon handcrafted Carbon fiber ground effects, single exhaust and Spec R wing.
The cockpit comes with Roadwire leather seat covers with perforated suede inserts, contrasted by blue stitching in the seat, door panels and Steering wheel. The Eibach Pro Kit Performance Springs are on a set of stunning 19″ “rotiform” QLB Forged wheels wrapped with Toyo Proxes T1R High Performance tires.
2016 Honda Civic Sedan Meguiars Build – Civic X Concept
Finally, there’s the recrafted Civic X Concept from Meguiars Build. It’s a modern take on the classic Honda look of the mid- to late-1990s. It features a carbon fiber hood and numerous Honda accessory enhancements. On the outside there are black accents in gloss and matt black textures.
It also has a bunch of Geddy Performance upgrades. Styling and handling also get a boost with SSR wheels and Pirelli ultra-high performance tires.
The interior receives a major overhaul with a two-tone red and black alcantara combination and features contrast stitching while sound is amplified thanks to a custom system featuring additional subwoofers and amplifiers.
