The gang at Temple of VTEC procured some Doane/Priddy spy shots of the 2007 Honda Element SC, a near doppelganger in streetable guise to the SC concept introduced at the New York show this year. At the show, Honda officials said the SC would appear this fall as a special edition, sporting lower-than-stock suspension, a smoothed-out body style, and a 166-hp version of Honda's 2.4-liter DOHC, i-VTEC four. It'll also get a swankier interior, with carpeting β€” making those famous hose-outs a kind of soggy affair. Nope, this one will be strictly for playahs, not players.
