2011 SEMA Show: Compass 360 Racing HPD 2012 Civic Si Coupe Racecar

Article by Christian A., on November 3, 2011

The Compass360 Racing HPD 2012 Civic Si Coupe Racecar made its debut at the 2011 SEMA Show and HFD also provided new details regarding its new racing performance parts program for the all-new Civic Coupe.

As you may know already, earlier this year HPD began sales of Civic bodies-in-white which are priced at $3,500 (seen in the photo gallery). For builders of racecars, starting their build with a body-in-white represents significant cost and labor savings when compared to the purchase and conversion of a fully-equipped production car.

Moreover, HPD will offer HPD-designed parts and branded racing components for the new Civic through the Honda Racing Line.

According to the manufacturer, the racing parts are tailored for use in the SCCA World Challenge and Grand Am's Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. For those interested, these parts will be available early in 2012 and full details and pricing will be available at that time.

The all-new 2012 Honda Civic model represents the ninth generation of Honda’s Civic brand.

Honda Civic is known for being a fun-to-drive compact vehicle yet also fuel-efficient, reliable, stylish, sporty, and durable. It is one of the Japanese carmaker’s most popular and most globally recognized lines of products, having reached 8.8 million customers since it was launched in 1973 up to 2010 in the United States alone.

Every generation of the Honda Civic has seen specific improvements and development themes, and the 2012 Civic is no exception. The new Civic embraces the concept of a “futuristic and distinctive compact,” which introduces new values that reach ahead of the car-owner’s current needs and elevates the Civic experience. The Civic’s major improvements include overall refinement, enhanced fuel efficiency for all models, better performance, smoother ride, sleeker interior appearance, and the integration of more interactive technologies to promote convenience and personalization.

The Civic is targeted towards the whole public spectrum of car-owners and drivers, regardless of their demographic and their psychographic profile – from students driving their very first cars, to young families with little children, to soccer parents, to schoolteachers, to all sorts of professionals, to environmentalists, to performance enthusiasts, and even members of the baby boomers, Generation Y, and the retirees.

It also suits drivers from anywhere in the country – whether they are from the Sunbelt states, the Snow Belt states, Hawaii, Alaska, and the Midwest. Needless to say, Honda Civic owners and drivers are tied together by the fact that they are young at heart, mainly because, above all other features and attributes, the car is fun to drive.

The Civic’s strongest advantages include fuel economy, overall affordability, and low emissions – all of which have earned an increased interest in the last decade. Additionally, the new 2012 Civic lineup embraces six variants, spanning from ultra efficiency to high performance, with certain models specifically designed to meet individual preferences and needs.
