Honda Unveiled a One-Off Civic in Chicago

February 10th, 2014 by

2014 Honda Civic 800The 2014 Honda Civic is without a doubt one of the most diverse vehicles available, and that’s part of why we love it at Tri-State Honda Dealers.

From gas-powered to hybrid to natural gas, drivers get powertrain options they didn’t even know existed (really, many don’t know about the Civic Natural Gas!), and then there are the sport-tuned Si and Si Coupe, the standard Civic with its many trims, and more.

So of course Honda is making a special one-off take on the Civic for the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, showcasing the vehicles versatility yet again.

The Forza Design Contest Winner

If you didn’t know, fans could design a special take on the Civic Si in the Forza Motorsport game series, and over 17,000 members of the community chose one design as the overall winner. So Honda brought it to life.

Tiffany Labedz’s design was the top choice out of over 170 entries. She had control over features such as wheel size, window tint, decals, paint colors, and a variety of special finish options. Features such as camouflage, gold, chrome, brass, and carbon fiber finishes are just a few of the choices available to ambitious designers.

“At Honda, we love meeting our customers where their passion lies, and the racing and custom car design in Forza Motorsport is definitely a passion for so many Honda and Civic enthusiasts,” said American Honda Motor Co. assistant vice president of advertising Tom Peyton. “Taking an immersive gaming experience like Forza and bringing it to life here at the Chicago Auto Show will make for an exciting exhibition and a real-life demonstration of how cars and gaming are increasingly intertwined.”

Honda announced plans to release more such special vehicles, and we’re eager to see just what the differences are between all of them. It would be incredible to see if they brought all of the Forza-inspired Civics to a show…
