Tokyo Auto Salon: Honda Inspire Modulo Touring

Honda looked to in-house tuner Modulo to take their Inspire (a.k.a. Accord) and shake off some of the Teutonic flavor. Though the new sedan does borrow heavily from European designs, the Modulo body kit certainly portrays a more typically Japanese sentiment. The new grille and front fenders, in particular, are more Motegi than Nurburgring. In addition to the exterior enhancements, it appears that the interior has been upgraded with two-tone leather and a smattering of techno goodies. The steering wheel alone has nearly a dozen buttons.

As with most Tokyo Auto Salon previews, there's no word yet on what kind of madness is going on under the skin. Just for fun let's say it's some tuned version of the 3.5-liter six. [Honda via World Car Fans, NihonCar]
