New Limited-Edition Performance Package Available on Accord Coupe V-6
Earlier this week Honda announced that the Honda Accord Coupe V-6 will be getting the limited-edition Honda Factory Performance (HFP) package, available at select Honda dealers in the U.S. This new package originally debuted at the 2012 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, with testing conducted by Honda's North American racing company. The HFP package adds enhanced styling and vehicle dynamics, enabling it to go around the track faster than the standard coupe, as well as feel more balanced and controlled. "The new Accord Coupe V6 is already a natural on twisty roads, but the HFP package really takes it to a new level. With a lowered ride height, sport suspension and more performance-oriented tires, the HFP kit definitely provides more controlled body motions and enhanced stability," said Lee Niffenegger, program senior engineer at Honda Performance Development. Included in the HFP package are larger 19-inch HFP alloy wheels, decklid spoiler, HFP sport suspensions, HFP front, side, and rear underbody spoilers, red interior illumination, as well as HFP floor mats and HFP badges for each side and the trunk. The package carries a 3-year/36,000-mile limited warranty and has an MSRP of $4,620. Only 500 models with the HFP package will be sold to dealers in the United States. Source: Honda
