Check out this nicely modified 8th-gen Honda Accord with a Mugen Body Kit and blue body paint.
What do car enthusiasts crave for? Modifying their rides according to their taste. And, it isn’t an easy job to modify cars in India with quality components. Since most of the parts have to be imported from different countries, the car owner ends up with a big hole in his pocket. However, that hasn’t stopped enthusiasts from pimping out their rides with some crazy kits and components. Here’s a nicely done 8th generation Honda Accord that we came across on the YouTube channel of Nitro Street. This particular car in the video below is named Blue Bee since it wears a shade of blue. It does look gorgeous in this paint scheme, right?
The car has been fitted with a Mugen body kit. In case you don’t know, Mugen Motorsports is a Japanese firm founded in 1973 by Hirotoshi Honda who was the son of Honda Motor Company’s founder Soichiro Honda. This kit includes a custom front lip, side skirts, and a rear diffuser. The kit gives this car a sporty appeal and a hunkered-down stance.
On the front, there’s also a Mugen-sourced radiator grille. The headlamps are aftermarket units, too. They feature twin LED-projector setup with an eyebrow-like LED DRL. The LED treatment is continued to the front fog lamps and rear tail lamps. It also gets custom deep dish alloy wheels with brushed-aluminium finish. The car has been lowered with the use of aftermarket springs, and it now sits quite close to the ground. A pop-up type sunroof is also fitted on this Accord.
This Accord sports a fierce-looking front end, however, a rear-wing would've enhanced the overall appeal of the car.
The 8th generation Accord was sold in India for a time period of 4 years. It was launched in the year 2011 and was discontinued in 2014. Back then, the Accord was offered with two petrol engine options – a 2.4L i-VTEC and 3.5L V6. The smaller 2.4L 4-cylinder unit produced a peak power output of 178 PS and max. torque of 222 Nm. It was offered with 2 transmission options – 5-speed MT and a 5-speed AT. The larger 3.5L V6 engine, on the other hand, belted out a peak power and torque output of 275 PS and 339 Nm, respectively. It came mated to a 5-speed AT. We are not sure about the model year of this car and its specifications aren't known either. But what we're really sure of is that this car is quite a looker!
