Say hello to the first naked shots of the 2008 Honda Accord. Although Honda is still doing long-lead press reviews of the 15-year leader in US sales, Brenda Priddy's spies captured the 2008 Accord just as it stepped out of its fascia-obscuring sports bra and into a photo shoot for a Canadian brochure. Here's what we know. Obviously, expect the new model to sport some serious frontal design changes. That new look's being eclipsed in the marketing materials only by the Honda's comments about the Accord's higher horsepower, better fuel economy and lower emissions for the V6-powered model. Although there's no word from Honda, we're anticipating a 3.5-liter V6 with about 270-horsepower, as well as the base 180-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder version.
Wow, it looks just like a car. I see a touch of Acura, Camry, Passat, Sebring, Aura, Cobalt, Malibu, 3-Series, 1500 New Class, G6, A6, B9, SRT-8, DB6, 300ZX, Cressida, Concorde, Cordoba, Celisor, Coaster, Chaser, Crestline, Consul, Fairmont, Duryea Ladies Phaeton, Stutz Diplomatica (lug nuts), Chris Bangle's scrotum, and a Fleetwood Jamboree Sport. Who does Honda think they are, blatantly plagarizing everybody in the world?
