    New Accord Hybrid....


    I never thought I'd find a friggin Accord exciting, until my wife brought home her current car, a 2003 Accord V-6 Coupe with a 6-speed manual and 240hp. I'm not allowed to drive it anymore, I got in trouble last time

    This hybrid has 255hp! I want one!!!

    If only Honda would pull their heads out of their asses and make the Accord AWD or RWD I'd definitely think it was pretty slick...

    But I really hate FWD, it makes my tires last too long

    But when we ride very fast motorcycles, we ride with immaculate sanity. We might abuse a substance here and there, but only when it's right. The final measure of any rider's skill is the inverse ratio of his preferred Traveling Speed to the number of bad scars on his body. It is that simple: If you ride fast and crash, you are a bad rider. If you go slow and crash, you are a bad rider. And if you are a bad rider, you should not ride motorcycles.

    And if only it were a sedan and designed to fit someone as tall/large as I am...

    Also, I've driven one, and its truly fucking odd to have to rev a car like a bike to make any power.... nevermind having to remove my elbow from my ribcage every time I shift!

    Have to remove your elbow from your ribcage....


    I sat in one and didn't mind it much, but I never did drive it....

    I just like the idea of having 255 hp in a car that gets 29MPG in the city

    I test drove the non-hybrid version. It is such a nice car, fast as heck and that six speed is so slick. Not to mention its just as good quality and luxuries as a mercedes/lexus for only $26k or so. The coupe looks pretty bad ass in black too.

    The hybrid version is a couple tenths faster to 60 as well.

    LMAO, thanks a whole bunch Scott, someone will be SURE to buy it now that they know I beat it around the track .

    Actually, I think it should be noted that the two pics of the Honda are the same lap, and that the cars that are in front of me are not the same cars that were behind me in the previous picture. The ole Accord held its own at LRP 117MPH at the end of the front straight

    But seriously, if anyone wants it, the wife wants one of those new 4-matic Mercedes C240s.

    Actually, that race car Audi behind me was a pretty dead even match with my wife's totally stock Accord . The fucking retard that drove it was trying so hard to get by me one time that when I went for the brakes at the end of the straight, he ended up flying by me on the grass on the left , dumb fuck.

    Actually, come to think of it, that Audi and the BMW that was behind me were pretty much the only cars I could stay in front of without scaring myself into thinking of three years of lease payments on a crumpled up piece of steel in my backyard....
