Honda Civic Si for SEMA by Fox Marketing

No Comments Honda

If you haven’t thought right now, the automotive aftermarket super show SEMA is almost upon us,
and tuner autos are sprouting up almost everywhere. So, up coming on the list is a 2012 Honda Civic Cuando by Fox Marketing.

Although the Civic has missing above the years very much of the tuning thunder it once had,
Fox Marketing wishes to prove otherwise. The concept is easy yet potent:
set up great turbo kit from Honda’s LMP1/LMP2 IndyCar motor, custom body kit,
20-inch tires, BASF R-M Ultrasonic Blue Pearl colour job and after that top it all off with more information on adding sponsors for approval.

The end result is a brand new Civic Si putting out 450 hp (335 kW / 456 PS) which often Fox Marketing asserts is good for “100, 000+ reliable mls with out blinking an eye. “.

No Comments Fiat

Italian tuning and race firm Romeo Ferraris has made a street legal version of their Abarth 500 Cinquone Modigliani race car.

Unveiled at Autodromo Vallelunga recently, the Cinquone Stradale maintains the same body appearance as the race car. It includes a new hood with large dual air scoops, front bumper with a large central air intake, integrated wide body fenders and skirts, and a rear bumper with central mounted exhaust and diffuser.

The engine which is the same Fiat 1.4-liter turbo four cylinder from the stock 500 has a new exhaust system with metal catalytic converter, remapped ECU and a bigger turbo that now delivers 300 PS – only 60 PS less than the race car.

Inside, the rear seat bench has been removed and replaced with a roll bar. The dash pad is covered in suede while carbon fiber race seats are draped with OMP 4-point seat harnesses.

The Cinquone Stradale weighs just over 1,000 kg (2,205 lbs) compared to the race car’s 900 kg (1,984 lbs).

Further details and performance specs will be released in the coming weeks.
