2010 SEMA: Honda Hits SEMA Hard With A Dozen CR-Z Sport Hybrids

Follow Nelson

No fewer than 12 modified Honda CR-Zs are on the SEMA show floor today, and this gallery brings you most of them. From MUGEN-accessorized JDM specials, to in-house racing Honda Performance Development (HPD), there's a CR-Z for everyone to love.

Provided, of course, you love the CR-Z to begin with. Its lackluster performance shouldn't get in the way of the SEMA treatment of the car, at any rate, as this is more about show than go. Not that the HPD example doesn't add a tasty bit of go to the CR-Z package.

Though it's not intended for sale, the HPD CR-Z Racer gets a performance upgrade via a turbochargerto boost output to 200 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. To prove the CR-Z Racer is up to the task of actual motorsports duty, two of the cars will be campaigned at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill in December. The CR-Z Hybrid R Concept, also from HPD, focuses on street styling.

  1. What pisses me off the most is Honda claims this is the ultimate mix between sports and hybrid. It has 122hp and 37 mpg. To today's standards that's neither sport or hybrid. The Chevrolet Cobalt does 155 hp with the exact same mpg and it isn't even a hybrid. And Honda's commercial claims something along the lines of "Engineering Perfected". If that is engineering perfected, apparently American Engineering is somewhere above perfect.

  2. Cool
