With the 2011 SEMA Show just around the corner, we’ve been getting fed tons of teasers and sneak peeks of finished projects that will be making their way to the big aftermarket expo in Las Vegas. But forget teasers, here’s the full reveal of Fox Marketing’s 2012 Honda Civic Si, boasting a wickedly clean widebody and packing over 450-hp thanks to Full-Race’s turbo kit.
The custom widebody and body kit is courtesy of carbodykits.com, while Fox Marketing opted to have the entire body resprayed by BASF’s R-M Ultrasonic Blue Pearl. Handling suspension duties are springs from Road Magnet while SSBC contributed a brake upgrade to the Si Coupe. For wheels, Fox Marketing opted for a custom 20-inch setup from Vossen. CV3 wheels adorn each corner of the project wrapped with Toyo Proxes 4 tires.
On the inside, Yonaka Ronin racing seats found their way inside after being reupholstered with factory Civic Si fabric inserts in the front and the rear. AutoGuide.com will be sure to check out the finished project up close in person starting on November 1st.

Fox Marketing has built some crazy rides in the past for SEMA, including several widebody Lexus vehicles blending the best of luxury and sport into one attractive package. For this year’s show, it looks as though Fox Marketing has teamed up with Honda to show off what its new 2012 Civic Si can do in the customization department. Several 2012 Civics were handed out by Honda to some of the country’s most well-known builders, and Fox Marketing is the first to disclose some details on what they’ll be doing on theirs.
Fox will be working with Full-Race to make the stock K24 engine pack up to 550-hp thanks to a custom turbo kit. It appears that Fox and Full-Race want to obtain those figures without touching the motor’s internals, which would be a testament to how great the K24 is.
When it arrives at SEMA on November 1st, the exterior will be painted a Sinister Silver paint courtesy of BASF’s R-M line. 13-inch brakes from SSBC will be on all four corners while the car will sport an aggressive stance thanks to a set of SPEC II coilovers from Yonaka.
