Celebrating its 50th year in America, Honda booted at the 2009 Specialty Equipment Market Association's (SEMA) appearance in Las Vegas with a diversity of historic Honda cars and the make of a 2010 Accord Sedan outfitted with MUGEN accessories.
"Customized Honda cars factor strongly into SEMA history and are a big part of Honda's 50 years in America," said Bruce Smith, vice president of Parts Operations for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "With a growing accessory lineup, now including MUGEN kits for the Accord sedan and Fit, Honda is committed to supporting personalization of our vehicles into the future."
A 2010 Accord Sedan outfitted with MUGEN accessories was revealed simultaneously with the statement that, on November 11th, Honda will offer a full line of MUGEN accessories ready for the Accord Sedan.
MUGEN accessories for the Honda Accord: 18-inch alloy wheels, front sports grille, front under-spoiler, side spoiler, rear under spoiler, sports floor mats, welded aluminium oil filler cap and a distinctive front emblem. All of the coated parts will come colour-matched to one of five popular Accord sedan colours: Polished Metal Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, Alabaster Silver Metallic, White Diamond Pearl and Taffeta White. MUGEN has been closely linked to Honda for decades in the design and production of racing and premium performance car parts.
Honda celebrated its 50th Anniversary on June 11, 2009. At the SEMA, it recognised the help of Honda fans with a display of several historic Honda cars including an N600, the first car that Honda sold in America.
