Honda showed off a gaggle of wild concepts for SEMA 2011, but the most interesting of the bunch may very well be a demure 2011 Accord Coupe V6. The two-door has been worked over by the go-fast fiends at Honda Factory Performance and boasts a range of bolt-on goodies that include a HFP suspension and body kit. More importantly, the Accord Coupe V6 Concept is laden with a smattering of prototype engine components. Engineers crafted a prototype supercharger, intake and exhaust systems just for the vehicle, and the end result is a very respectable 335 horsepower 285 pound-feet of torque.

Those figures mark an increase of 64 ponies and 34 lb-ft of twist over the stock 3.5-liter V6, which should do plenty to make the Accord a more interesting piece of metal. Right now, Honda says that the concept was built purely to gauge public interest and determine whether or not Accord Coupe buyers would actually be interested in a hotter version of the vehicle. We say extra horsepower is always a good thing, especially when it comes with a factory warranty.

      FWD keeps you to a small package for the engine and trans, which leaves you more interior space, and less weight. more weight on that front end will get you better traction on slightly loose conditions, important for turning on wet roads, but maybe we've become FWD dependent to ignore our lack of driving abilities and training. now for performance you don't want FWD because you start to plow or get stuck in your understeer as the weels are both pulling you and trying to re-direct you. all that said, i don't remember honda asking us before if we'd like anything beyond an intake/header/underdrive pulley set in the power department (wasn't there a honda backed AEM package for civis back around 2000). The numbers for the accord are in range with the eclipse v6 iirc, another FWD nose heavy sports coupe.

        The accord is actually lighter and with the extra power from the super charger it is probably faster than a base camaro.

        @Sophia Instead of posting on Autoblog did you know you could make $89/hour on the computer? My best friend's mom's cousin's neighbor's idiot sister made $1337 last month being a ***** on her webcam. No typing required and perverts around the globe would watch you regardless of how stupid you are.

      You can put a supercharger on a pig but you'll still be left with a boring front-wheel-drive crapbox.

        Did I see you today on the road whiptailing your fun RX-8 like a moron and cutting everyone off?

          how the hell are you going to tell someone what they do or don't want? One man's sh*t sandwich is another man's creme brulee.. so any of your opinions are indeed subjective, as much as you feel about everyone elses opinion is all subjective.. the sword cuts both ways. Considering you've probably never drove and Accord.. stock or otherwise, and that this car is merely a concept, a "what if" if you will. How do you know that this stuff that they have put out is still being worked out and refined on the drawing board? I suspect that Honda has a few more surprises left, no thier designs and engine options may not be as exciting as what everyone elses flavor du jour is right now.. however Honda's have proven that they do run, and they run fairly more reliably than the competition. The competition with thier newer engines etc etc. still yet have to prove themselves in the reliability department. Perhaps this concept is indication of a direction they are going with in the future, and maybe this concept is part of the R&D that will go into the next generation HP engine for Honda. And I've read yours and other comments about Honda's direction based on the disappointment of the Civic, however you are overlooking the fact that the majority of the people who buy the Civic, want an efficient, reliable means of transportation, I think Honda will take steps to rectify thier folly about the Civic, but I think thier idea was go with what works with some minor tweaks and refinements, and perhaps get started on other things they have rolling out. I'm sure you'll poo poo my comment and say its all conjecture, but then most of what I've read from you and your opinions is conjecture. Lets wait and see what happens.

      SH AWD is one of the best AWD systems on the market. This accord with SHAWD would be unstoppable.

        It would price itself out of existence, sadly, unless Honda sold it as a CL. Nobody's going to plop down 40k+ for an Accord, even if it's the same car.

          I wish acura brought back the CL... a CL with SHAWD would be nice.

          Exactly what I was thinking. There are many less inherently compromised practical performance options for $40k+, one of which resides within Honda's own stable (TL SH-AWD 6MT). It doesn't quite match up in power, but SH-AWD would not only allow it to deploy what it does have more reliably, it makes a better case as the foundation for this prototype HFP blower.
