Prototype Honda Accord debuted as SEMA

While Honda fans are excitedly looking forward to the release of the 2012 Civic, the recent Specialty Equipment Marketing Association (SEMA) event in Las Vegas saw another of the Japanese firm's models create something of a buzz.

The manufacturer used the event as a platform to unveil a new supercharged prototype for a Honda Accord, Auto Week reported.

According to the news provider, the V6 coupe concept was fitted with Honda's HFP package, boasting upgraded body kit, rims and suspension.

The flashy part, which grabbed the attention of those in attendance, was the HPD-supercharger, intake and exhaust system.

Figures quoted by Auto Week speculate of 333bhp and 285 pounds per foot of torque.

SEMA is arguably the biggest aftermarket auto event in the world, showing off everything from high-performance models to custom wheels and graphics from local shops.

The news comes shortly after Honda confirmed that the 2012 Civic will be put through its paces in next year's British Touring Car Championships.
