Check out this nicely modified Honda Accord with a wide body kit, custom paint scheme, air suspension and several other carefully conducted customizations
Coming across a Honda Accord is not tough, but coming across a tastefully modified one is not that easy. However, recently, we came across one and it is among the best-modified examples of the 8th generation Accord we've ever seen. We found this particular example on YouTube on Nitro Street’s channel. The car has been named as Camelon since it is painted in a shade of pearlescent purple. But it isn’t the paint job itself that brought this car to our publishing desk. Instead, it is the squatting stance of the car that caught our attention.
To start with, it gets a Mugen body kit, which includes a front bumper, side skirts, and rear bumper. Apart from this kit, it also wears a matt-black radiator grille on the front. Also, it gets a wide-body kit with fender flares to accommodate super-wide tyres shod on a set of deep-dish alloy wheels. It also gets a large spoiler for some extra downforce.
This modified Honda Accord can be lowered or raised depending upon the need with just a press of a button as it is fitted with pneumatic suspension. The headlamps and tail lamps on this modified Accord are not stock units either. It features aftermarket headlamps with dual projectors and LED DRLs, while the tail lamps also feature LED elements. There’s not much revealed about the performance mods on this car in the video. However, one can spot the custom quad-exhaust muffler protruding out of the rear diffuser.
This modified Honda Accord looks like it is ready to beat some capable saloons on a tight gymkhana course.
The 8th generation Honda Accord was sold in India with 2 engine options – 2.4L i-VTEC and 3.5L V6. The smaller one of the lot was a 4-cylinder unit with a peak power output of 178 PS and max. torque of 222 Nm. It could be had mated to either a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 5-speed AT. The bigger 3.5L V6 engine, on the other hand, produced higher power and torque figures of 275 PS and 339 Nm, respectively. It was offered with a 5-speed automatic transmission only. However, it is not known, which one of the two engine options this Accord is equipped with. Back then, the prices for Accord started from Rs. 20.44 lakh and topped out at Rs. 27.38 lakh. That said, the used examples of the 8th generation Accord can be found for less than Rs. 5.00 lakh with ease.
