Honda is releasing several customized cars at the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon.
Honda has prepared a gaggle of new, customized cars for the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon. As the U.S. market is entranced by the new models appearing every day at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, the Japanese automaker reckons that this is a perfect time to gain some leverage and attention in the Asian market. The lineup for the Auto Salon reads as follows: the N Box Custom minicar, Freed compact minivan, the Freed Wa and Spike Transporter, the TS-1X concept, Sports Module NSX, the HSV-010 GT and the inappropriately-named Flash Box.
Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your level of interest in these things), not the same kind of Flash Box the name would otherwise suggest. Several bikes will also be on display. The Freed Wa is based on the Freed Hybrid compact minivan and it features "the ancient Japanese art of lacquering" on the exterior along with flowers representing the four seasons on the interior. The Flash Box features "a special body color, reflective decal sheets and LEDs used as a decorative element in both the exterior and interior designs." The 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon opens this Friday, January 13th.
