Click image for live gallery of the Honda Coupe HFP from SEMA

The second accessorized Accord from Honda is the Accord Coupe HFP Concept. This is the one that you can replicate with a careful parts checking in the Honda Factory Performance accessory catalog, not the HF-S as we previously reported. This red sample looked pretty good, but not nearly as racy as the HF-S. After the jump you'll find the limited press release and a photo of the placard that provides details about what specific mods this coupe is sporting that you can buy for your own coupe. As we pointed out earlier, the great thing about factory accessories is that if you have the dealer affix them to your car, they carry a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty.

PRESS RELEASE:

Honda to Reveal Two Factory-Modified Accord Coupes at SEMA Show

10/23/2007 -TORRANCE, Calif. - American Honda Motor Co., Inc., today announced that two factory-modified versions of the all-new 2008 Accord Coupe will be revealed at the 2007 SEMA show on October 30, 2007. SEMA attendees will see the first showing of the Honda Factory Performance version of the Accord Coupe along with the Accord Coupe HF-S Concept, a specialty concept created by Honda Access America, Inc., Honda's U.S. accessory development team. More details about both vehicles will be released at the SEMA show.

As a dealer installed accessory, Honda's in-house HFP products carry the same 3-year/36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty as the rest of the vehicle, when installed at the time of new vehicle purchase, and are designed to genuinely enhance the ownership experience. American Honda launched its performance accessory
program in 2002 with the introduction of a Honda Factory Performance package for the Civic EX Coupe.

      you can build it yourself, but why?

      same design issues as with the sedan. design by committee. Is the coupe also Full-size now?

      Looks like a Euro Ford to me, Falconish even. The copying should be left to the Chinese.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Not a single performance modification, just appearance items. Weak.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Y-rated 245/40R19 tires, lowered springs, and stiffer dampers don't constitute performance mods? Roads to tend to curve occasionally, you know...

      Just to educate most of you here. This is a USDM Honda Accord. If you want the current JDM Honda Accord then you should look at the Acura TSX, which will be redesigned in 2009.

      The new Honda Accord sedan and coupe are designed here in America. They are sold in Europe and Japan badged as the Honda Inspire, just like the last generation Accord.

      Just food for thought

      Gorgeous. Too bad it's a 3,330 lb front-driver.

      Ah well, there's always a place for fast, comfortable, buttoned-down "grand tourers,"and Honda hasn't dressed this HFP up with any boy-racer promises it can't keep. I like it.

        Actually, you'd be surprised at the amount of press such cars have garnered such as the GTi which is FWD, damn near 3300lbs, and a great drive.

        That said... no performance mods? pass. Though I do like the coupe, and i'm averse to honda (it's a good sign) :)

      That looks really nice.

      That thing is money. I wish I hadn't already bought a new car. Just kidding, I like my Civic coupe for half of what this thing costs.

      Has anyone else had the chance to drive the 6-speed Accord Coupe?? I did and this car is one fast ride!!! There is no doubt in my mind that if anyone hooks this car to a dyno they will prove that the 268hp number is only there to protect Acura. This car jumps out of the hole while the TCS is barely noticeable, although it is working hard, and pulls hard all the way to the top of 4th gear.

      Go drive one, you will be shocked. I have an '04 6-Speed Coupe and I never thought the extra HP and TQ numbers would feel that different.

      The Altima coupe is no match after you've stepped out of the Accord.

      Say what you want about the sedan, but the coupe is definitely beautiful.
