With the overwhelming amount of aftermarket manufacturers tuning hybrids at this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon, it’s no surprise that C-West has also hopped on the bandwagon. Interestingly enough, we haven’t heard much news from C-West over in North America. Several years back they made a strong push and presence Stateside with their full-carbon record-setting Time Attack S2000 in addition to the popularity of their kits, especially amongst the Honda Civic EK crowd.
Perhaps to gain some momentum back in North America, C-West is current developing new kits for Honda’s popular hybrids, the Insight and the CR-Z. Mazda’s RX-8, though probably not the most popular chassis around, will also get a kit that is reminiscent of traditional C-West styling. C-West is definitely hitting the mark on the Honda bodies with these renderings. Keeping with the theme of being conservative with a hybrid, both the Insight and CR-Z kit aren’t over-the-top, having subtle lines that accentuate the natural body lines of both cars. We are excited to see these in person!
