The build preview of Fox Marketing’s 2012 Honda Civic Si Coupe happened more than six weeks ago just after the conclusion of the Frankfurt Motor Show. Since that time, Fox Marketing has finally completed their SEMA-bound project, and it is as good - maybe even better - than what we initially thought.
The event is less than a week away and since a lot of automakers and aftermarket companies are coming out with previews of their programs, Fox Marketing has joined in on the fun with a doozy of a program for the Civic SI Coupe. The tuning project for the car involves a modified chassis, an extensive exterior make-over, and best of all, a tuning program that will boost the car’s output all the way up to 450 horsepower courtesy of an intercooler kit, among other things. For a car that carries a 2.4-liter engine with ’only’ 201 horsepower and 170 lb/ft of torque on tap, bumping the output by over 150% is nothing short of extraordinary.
In addition to the engine upgrade, Fox Marketing also gave the car some aesthetic and aerodynamic enhancements, including a a Blue Pearl exterior finish, a new aero kit, a lowered suspension system, a new set of 20" wheels wrapped in Toyo Proxes 4 Tires, and Yonaka Ronin Racing Seats with factory Civic Si fabric inserts.
