2007 Honda Civic Hybrid customized by Fall Out Boy
Fall Out Boy is kicking their upcoming Honda Civic tour into high gear by giving fans a chance to win their very own "green" Civic Hybrid. The band has created their own customized, one-of-a- kind, eco-friendly ride with Fall Out Boy inspired designs and band autographs.
The exterior of the car features a Shop Smart Auto Body Supply custom metallic-black paint, with gunmetal Tarot and star graphics custom-designed by Fall Out Boy, coated with a flaked sheen of DPI Clearcoat. A silver Fall Out Boy logo embellishes the hood along with a quote from Van Gogh ("Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all."), and each band member’s autograph can be found on the vehicle. Other custom graphics include the Overcast Kids umbrella shielding the front bumper from falling stars, the Clandestine Industries bat logo soaring through the night on the roof and the Honda Civic Tour logo adorning the rear bumper.
The exterior of the car features upgraded aero parts from HFP (Honda Factory Performance), which include a lower front spoiler, larger side skirts and a lower rear spoiler. A chrome exhaust finisher from HFP accents the new rear spoiler and the rear of the car features tinted brakelights as well as custom-tinted chrome badges.
The custom "eco-friendly" interior features customized black hemp and vinyl seats with silver stitching, and headrests embroidered with the Clandestine Industries bat logo. Hemp was also utilized in the door panels, carpet, headliner and visors. The custom-painted door panels and dash encircle the interior in stars, which match the custom exterior paint. A custom-installed Audix D6 microphone acts as the gear shifter to get you rolling. Opening the trunk, you will find all the necessary Meguiar’s professional car care products to always keep the stars shining bright inside and out.
Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System
If music moves you, get ready to roll. The Honda Civic Hybrid pulsates with sound emanating from a touch-screen AM/FM/XM*/CD audio system with WMA and MP3 capability, digital audio-card reader that lets you play digital music straight from your memory card, and speed-sensitive volume control (SVC). The navigation system features voice recognition and the complete audio system can be controlled from the steering wheel-mounted controls.
