2011 SEMA Show: Honda Accord Coupe V6 Concept gets supercharged

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 3, 2011

Honda unveiled at the 2011 SEMA Show, the Accord Coupe V6 HFP Concept, a vehicle that combines the expertise of Honda Performance Development (HPD) with the styling and performance history of Honda Factory Performance (HFP). As you can see from the photos, the car features a new body kit consisting of a new front bumper, new side sills as well as a new rear bumper with integrated exhaust system.

If the Honda Factory Performance department took care of the exterior, the Honda Performance Development upgraded the engine. As a result, the standard 3.5-liter V6 engine got supercharged and now delivers an impressive 335 hp and 285 ft. lbs of torque (up 64 hp and 34 ft. lbs vs. stock car).

HPD guided the creation of the “concept,” which includes a supercharger and performance air intake and exhaust systems. Although we don’t know if this concept will get a production version, Honda says that the car was modified in order to demonstrate the performance potential of the Accord V6 coupe and to gauge consumer interest.

The 2011 Honda Accord Sedan and Coupe, which will be available starting mid-August 2010, have been given interesting upgrades including enhanced exterior and interior design, a new leather-equipped Special Edition trim level, and improved fuel efficiency. You can get the 2011 Honda Accord as either a sedan or a coupe model in four-cylinder and V6 variations, each with a specific balance of performance, efficiency, style, and value.

According to Eric Berkman, American Honda Motor Co., Inc.’s vice president for corporate planning and logistics, the 2011 Honda Accord boasts sharper inside and outside styling, better fuel economy, and an evolved application of popular features. He says that the Honda Accord is designed in order to deliver a consistent and rewarding experience for car owners and drivers.

As for better fuel economy, it means improvements to aerodynamics, transmission gear ratios, and engine friction. An automatic transmission Honda Accord 4-cylinder sedan’s EPA fuel economy ratings improve by 2 mpg (miles per gallon) in the city and 3 mpg on the highway, from a city/highway rating of 23/34 mpg.

Additionally, the 2011 Honda Accord Sedan's exterior has a more powerful and more upscale feel to it, with a new look for the front grille, the front bumper, and the rear deck lid. It also has new design for the wheels.

Meanwhile, the Honda Accord Coupe builds on the design character of its sedan counterpart. It has a unique muscular stance that is enhanced by a bolder front grille, an enhanced brakelight, a new front bumper style, and a new wheel design for V6 models.

Needless to say, the Honda Accord SE Sedan strikes a balance between luxury and value. It offers the additional features carried by the popular Honda Accord LX-P and possesses the luxurious feel of heated seats, leather-trimmed seating and stirring wheel, and driver's power-lumbar support.
