MARKHAM, ON (February 17, 2011) – Honda Canada revealed the first member of its newHonda Factory Performance (HFP) line-up at the 2011 Canadian International Auto Show inToronto. The Canadian-exclusive, “Limited-Series Black” 2011 Honda Accord HFP Coupe is an aggressive expression of Honda’s commitment to developing new levels of styling and performance potential of its vehicles.
“The new Accord HFP Coupe is designed for the Accord buyer who wants an even sportier look and an enhanced driving experience in addition to the quality and reliability Honda has always delivered,” said Jerry Chenkin, executive vice president of Honda Canada Inc. “We wanted to provide an example of how easy it is to create a more sporty ride when your foundation is a Honda– and we’re confident that we have hit the mark with this car.” The enhanced exterior styling comes from a wider and lower appearance, achieved through a 25-mm (1”) suspension drop, 19-inch wheels and skirt kit that includes front, rear and side skirts. In addition, a more responsive sport suspension designed to provide a more exhilarating driving experience with improved tire grip from special Michelin Primacy MXM4 tires. Add that to the Accord’s 271-horsepower V6 engine and the result is a car meant to turn heads just long enough to see the new 2011 Honda Accord HFP Coupe go from the rear-view mirror to the horizon ahead.
The 2011 Limited-Series Black Honda Accord HFP Coupe will be priced at $37,890 and will be available at select Honda dealerships this spring in limited numbers, with only 200 being produced.
Two transmissions will be available – 5-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual, with Black as the only exterior colour.
