American Honda Highlights Performance and Personalization at 2012 SEMA

2013 Honda Accord HFP makes world debut; Acura brand returns to SEMA
Show with 2013 ILX; HPD displays championship race cars

10/30/2012 - LAS VEGAS

The Honda Factory Performance® (HFP®) package for the 2013 Accord
Coupe makes its world debut today as part of the American Honda
display at the 2012 SEMA Show. The all-new 2013 Accord Coupe and Sedan
set a new standard for midsize car styling, efficiency and
performance, and three modified Accords on display further highlight
the personalized appearance and performance potential of the model.

Adjacent to the Honda display, Acura returns to the SEMA Show after a
six-year absence on the strength of the all-new 2013 ILX luxury
compact sedan, displaying two modified ILX vehicles and the striking
Acura Supercar Concept vehicle featured in the blockbuster movie
"The Avengers."

Honda Performance Development, Inc. (HPD) merits its own section of
the display with championship vehicles including a replica of Dario
Franchitti's 2012 Indianapolis 500-winning Indy car, the Muscle Milk®
Racing 2012 American Le Mans Series P1 champion car and a B-spec Honda
Fit race car that recently won its class at the 2012 SCCA Runoffs.

"Honda, Acura and HPD are on a roll this year, and the SEMA Show
gives us a great opportunity to show off a bit," said Mike
Accavitti, vice president of National Marketing Operations for
American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "With the new Honda Accord clearly
excelling in all areas, the ILX opening new doors for Acura, and HPD
building championship race cars left and right, it's clear that the
magic is back."

The limited-edition HFP package for the 2013 Accord Coupe is set to go
on sale in the spring of 2013 and includes: 19-inch HFP alloy wheels;
decklid spoiler; HFP sport suspension (lowers height by 15mm and
enhances handling); HFP front, side and rear underbody spoilers; red
interior illumination; HFP floor mats and HFP badges for each side and
the trunk. The HFP package, like all Honda Genuine Accessories,
carries a 3-year/36,000-mile limited warranty when installed at the
time of new vehicle purchase, and is engineered to be fully compatible
with the vehicle. Enhancing its exclusive appeal, only 500 examples of
this limited-edition HFP package will be sold for the 2013 Accord. The
Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of the package, not
including installation, will be $4,650.

Also on display, a 2013 Accord Sedan featuring the X-Package and
additional available Honda Genuine Accessories is designed to turn
heads and accentuate the sedan's aerodynamic styling. The X-Package
for the Accord Sedan is currently available for purchase nationwide at
Honda dealers. The package includes front, side and rear underbody
spoilers; a sport grille and a rear-wing spoiler with a MSRP of
$2,171, excluding installation.

Reaching out to the enthusiast community, Honda invited two
independent vehicle tuners to build and display their Accord concepts
at the SEMA Show. Tuners were asked to push the limits of performance
and style with their builds, and the vehicles on display demonstrate
the personalized potential of the Accord Coupe and Sedan. After
previously building amazing versions of the 2011 CR-Z and the 2012
Civic Si, Bisimoto Engineering returns with a 401 hp version of the
Accord V6 Coupe in "Grand Touring" style. With three prior
Honda project builds under their belts, including a 2007 Element, a
2009 Pilot and a 2011 CR-Z, DSO Eyewear / MAD Industries shows off
their all-new Accord Sedan with upscale customization inside and out.

The HPD Supercharged CR-Z Concept rounds out the Honda section of the
display with a further exploration of the performance potential of the
CR-Z Sport Hybrid. Expanding on the CR-Z supercharged engine displayed
at the 2011 SEMA Show, HPD made enhancements to improve acceleration,
handling and stopping by adding a sport exhaust, developing a sport
suspension, designing wheels with high performance tires and adding
sport brakes.

The all-new 2013 Acura ILX luxury compact sedan offers a great
chassis, dynamic engine choices, and sophisticated styling, perfect
for the car enthusiast seeking compact fun and performance, with
luxury and technology matching much larger vehicles. Honda R&D's
Team Honda Research-West chose to highlight the performance potential
of the car by building the 2013 Acura ILX Endurance Racer, on display,
which will compete in NASA's grueling 25 Hours of Thunderhill
endurance race later this year. Additionally on display, Evasive
Motorsports created the 2013 Acura ILX Street Build project car,
featuring an Acura Genuine Accessories aero kit and aftermarket
supercharger among many modifications designed to provide a fun, daily
drivable car that is tastefully done.
