Ever since the original Fast & Furious movie was released back on June 22, 2001, modified Honda Civics are nothing special, but this one spotted on a local Facebook group definitely stands out, and probably not for the reasons you think. Priced at $2,700 USD, this sixth-generation Civic appears to have been chopped in half and had a pickup bed spliced onto the rear. Unfortunately, this was not completed in the hands of a professional, so it’s quite rough around the edges. Read more to see why.

Honda makes cars, business jets, and now, robotic lawnmowers. Called the Grass Miimo, this electric mower has an operating range of 43,055-square-feet and is designed for use on orchards or farms. Simply set a boundary with an electric wire, and once finished, Miimo automatically returns to its charging base to power up for the next use. If you don’t happen to be around, just set a schedule for it to run at a certain time. Read more for two videos and additional information.
Auto enthusiasts have probably seen at least one Ariel Atom before, and their latest model is definitely no slouch. Powered by a Honda Civic Type R 2.0L turbocharged engine making 321 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, this kart-like sports car can hit 60 mph in a blistering fast 2.8-seconds. Unlike its predecessors, this model sports a lightweight hand-built structure with a larger diameter main / diagonal tubes and new aluminum-alloy bulkheads, resulting in a torsional rigidity increase of 15%.

The original Honda del Sol is a 2-seater targa top and successor to the popular CR-X, so it’s no surprise that the automaker is possibly working on an all-electric followup. Designer Alexis Poncelet thinks so as well, and came up with this futuristic Honda HR-X Del Sol electric pickup concept. It draws inspiration from the all-electric Honda e, but with a set of off-road tires that can handle city streets and the back roads without issue. Read more for additional pictures.

A Honda S2000 CR recently sold for over $100,000 USD, so it’s no surprise that has piqued the interest of many automotive designers yearning for a successor. One such designer is Somak Biswas who came up with this sleek refresh aimed at the 2024 model year, the 25th anniversary of the original S2000. It would be powered by a Civic Type R-sourced turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine generating 306-horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, mated to a 6-speend manual transmission.

Many Honda fans wanted an S2000 trim that would be perfect for the track straight from the factory. So, Honda responded in 2008 with the S2000 Club Racer (CR) edition. Upgrades included a lower ratio steering rack, revised exhaust system, black lug nuts, dark grey colored wheels, clear side markers, a stiffer suspension and new Bridgestone Potenza RE070 tires that were 10mm wider at the rear (255/40R-17). The revamped body kit consisted of a redesigned front lip and large rear spoiler, which both wind-tunnel tested and claimed to reduce the overall coefficient of lift by 70–80%. One 2009 model with just 985-miles on the odometer just sold for a whopping $112,111. Read more for additional pictures and information.

Sung Nak Lee is an automotive designer by trade and Honda fan at heart, so what better way to combine both passions than to create a concept that takes the NSX to a whole new level. Introducing the Acura Allure. Featuring a sleek hourglass-shape designed for maximum aerodynamic efficiency, there are two lounge seats that can be reconfigured into a single central seat when not in full autonomous mode.

Mumbai-based Executive Mod Trendz recently had a customer who wanted to transform their 2009 Honda Civic coupe into a supercar of sorts. So, the tuning shop decided to build a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 shell for the car from scratch, and to be honest, it looks halfway decent. The dimensions on this knockoff may not match its real-life counterpart, but the matte black paint, along with the body panels could fool some people.

Here’s a first look at the 2022 Honda Civic prototype, and in a Solar Flare Pearl color. Available late spring 2021, it will be launched in the standard Civic Sedan trim, followed by the sporty Civic Hatchback, performance-focused Civic Si, and the track-ready Civic: Type R. This 11th-generation Civic is even sportier, thanks to a new chassis, more powerful fuel-efficient powertrains, multiple new Civic-first technologies, and further advancements in active as well as passive safety features.

Driving without a tire (or tires) is most certainly going to grinding on the rim, which means a potentially expensive replacement. If the grinding gets too intense, you could end up dragging other parts of your car along the road, and apparently, this is what happened on October 19 in Whippany, New Jersey along Interstate 287. A lady sped down the highway at 60 mph on just the bare rim of the driver’s side rear wheel. Read more for the video and additional information.
