    Honda Civic Si Is Prepared by Fox Marketing for SEMA

    With SEMA being so close, Fox Marketing provides the 2012 Honda Civic Si with a fancy widebody kit. The modifications include revised bumpers, tail spoiler, widened arches, vented bonnet, diffuser , and side skirts. Fox also painted the car BASF R-M Ultrasonic Blue Pearl.

    The main focus of this build, as stated by Fox Marketing, was actually to showcase the performance capability and reliability from Honda’s new K24Z7 power plant. The substantial performance upgrade is massive 450 hp due to the turbocharger kit. Taking into consideration the fact that the K24Z7 is already strong from the factory, a new Full-Race intercooled turbo kit was added. The turbo kit includes the BorgWarner EFR turbo, noticed before in Honda’s LMP1/LMP2 engine program, and 2012 Indycar teams.

    Additional power and durability also come from Honda RRC intake manifold (euro Accord Type-R). Because of such type of power, a serious traction was needed. That's why Fox chose a 10.5 inch wide Vossen wheel with Toyo Tyre. The other part of the kit includes sport suspension, chassis tuning, and brakes. As for interior upgrades, Honda Civic Si got Yonaka Ronin racing seats with matching upholstery and trims.

    Yesterday, Honda released its Environmental Annual Report for 2011 where the company declared company's new goal of CO2 emissions reduction. The report states that Honda will reach 30% carbon emissions reduction by the year 2020.

    Back in 1992, Honda announced its Environmental Statement that defined the company's commitment to address environmental issues. Since then, Honda has been striving for emissions reduction and for minimization of oil dependence through increase of products efficiency and development of vehicles that run alternative fuels. But it was only the beginning. In 2006, the company set the target to reduce CO2 emissions by 10% compared to 2000 level by the end of 2010. The goal was successfully reached. Now, the company is determined to achieve an even more ambitious aim. The target is increased to 30% reduction by 2020 in comparison to 2000 level. The aim is to reduce emissions of all the products from cars and motorbikes to even power generators.

    All Honda's environmental goals are united by the Blue Skies for Our Children slogan, which reflects proactive position of the company in the question of environmental protection. Even though it has such a strong rival as Mazda that wants to achieve the same 30% emission reduction yet by 2015, it seems that Honda is determined to become the greenest auto company.
