Honda previews show and race cars for ahead SEMA

Trucks, motorcycles and race cars will headline Honda's booth a the Vegas aftermarket extravaganza.

Honda will be displaying a slew of modified, race, and concept vehicles to the annual SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Not only will there be passenger vehicles and trucks, but motorcycles and a pedal car for kids. Honda hasn't unveiled all of their SEMA cars yet, but here's what we know so far.

Perhaps the most unique vehicle revealed at this point is the Ridgeline Overland Project, designed for off-road adventurers. The pickup is equipped with roof and bed racks that provide a flat surface for a collapsable Roof Nest tent and a Honda EU2200i generator. The rig also sports skid plates, off-road wheels and tires, side steps, and a leveling kit. Honda says that these modifications "will soon be available for purchase" but has not announced a timeline.

Honda is also showing several race cars, including two Civic Type Rs. The first is a touring car modified to compete in FIA WTCR with a 340-horsepower engine. Campaigned by RealTime Racing, the car has won five out of the 12 races this season and taken the podium 11 times. The second Civic Type R is prepped to compete at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill, good for 380 horsepower. In addition, there will be a Honda Pilot that competed in the 8-day, 1,700-mile Rebelle Rally across the Nevada and California deserts, and an F3 race car.

Honda is also showing the 2019 Monkey and Super Cub C125, two retro 125cc motorcycles that have been in production since the middle of last century, but have not been sold in the US for decades.

Last but not least, Honda will reveal an Open Air Vehicle Concept. Little information about this car exists, but we will have more information next week as the SEMA Show opens on October 30.
