Honda have presented a rather more formidable version of the 3-door Accord at this year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas, with the world debut of the Accord Coupe HF-S Concept. The concept vehicle aims at demonstrating a 'radical vision' for the customisation of the all-new Accord. In pursuit of fine-tuning performance, enhanced technology has been developed for the car, while new avenues in the all-new Accord's design are explored to show how vehicle owners could apply 'their own style'.
Key exterior and strictly conceptual modifications to the engine and setup produce improvements to practical performance and the driving experience. Performance is enhanced through a number of design elements, including the addition of a new front bumper, designed to aid aerodynamics and engine cooling. Shaped carbon fiber side panels reduce negative speed force around the arches, while a new rear bumper diffuser reduces drag and a prototype rear lid spoiler increases down-force.
The performance-enhancing features are set off by a colour whose inspiration draws from that of super-heated metal: Cadmium Orange Pearl. The car's twin exhaust allows for the provision of greater performance when required, while is engineered to retain 'exceptionally quiet' noise levels during cruising.
Aiming to prove its worthiness in regard to customisation, a key concept that has been introduced is the ability to electronically customise performance features to driver tastes, from throttle response and suspension setup to steering boosting and traction involvement.
