Honda Vehicles at the 2014 SEMA Show

For the 2014 SEMA Show, Honda enlisted the services of six creative automotive entrepreneurs to explore the tuning potential of the all-new Honda Fit by creating their personal vision for the compact sensation. Their efforts were chronicled on Tumblr.com where fans could vote for their favorite builds. All of these exciting new Fits are on display in the Honda booth at the SEMA Show this week. Read below for details and to see which one took home the prize as Fan Favorite in the 2015 Fit Performance Project.

Also on display at the Honda booth are two specially prepared vehicles from Honda Performance Development (HPD), including a 2015 Fit B-Spec concept race car, and a very special CR-Z built by HPD to pace the IndyCar racing series.

Honda is also showcasing a Dallara IndyCar chassis—powered by Honda—just like the car driven by Ryan Hunter-Reay to victory at this year's Indianapolis 500 race.
