Honda at NOPI 2002

 Credibility Rating: N/A


I stopped by the Honda booth while they were setting up for NOPI today and snapped off some shots of the FP RSX and Civics. Notice the Ro Ja Motegi wheels on this RSX (these differ from the wheels shown earlier by Acura). Also absent from the RSX show car are the slotted rotors that were announced in July (I was told these are still in the "pre-production" phase, so the show car may not have everything that the actual FP package will offer). The SI FP package at this point appears to amount primarily to wheels and lowering springs.

UPDATE: I was informed that the Si FP at this point is in the very early concept stages - the car shown at NOPI is simply using the Coupe FP setup in terms of wheels and springs. The "real" setup is currently under development, so there may be major differences. Also, the The RSX Type S being shown at NOPI this weekend is actually the FP "development mule", and is not "correct" in terms of FP specifications. This means that the Ro Ja Motegi wheels shown on this car will not be sold as part of the FP package. The wheels shown in the earlier PR shots are the correct wheels.

Here are a few of the snapshots I grabbed on Friday. I may post more later if there is demand.
