The idea which was thought up by the team at Honda North America was then given to the team at Fox Marketing Cars, based in York, Pennsylvania, to then turn the concept into reality in time for Comic-Con.

The special edition one of one Honda Sonic Civic build customization includes the following modifications:

Custom wheels and tires representing Sonic’s infamous red shoes and gold rings featured in the game.

Custom exterior including a one-of-a-kind vinyl Sonic the Hedgehog design and bespoke paint scheme – a Sonic Black Grill, BASF R-M Candy Sonic Blue painted exterior with custom Sonic Yellow throughout including a Sonic Yellow Honda logo.

Custom interior features Sonic the Hedgehog front and rear seats with Katzkin Blue Leather and custom “Sonic the Hedgehog” 25th Anniversary embroidered logos.

Custom trunk design with Rockford Fosgate audio-visual system featuring two 500-watt T1S2 10-inch subwoofers, two 500-watt TM400 400-watt amplifiers, and a floor-mounted flip-up/down 32-inch television for video game fans to play classic “Sonic the Hedgehog” games.

Now what happens to this car is anyone’s guess, will it be sold off or will it be a show car that Honda uses at various events around the country?

SEMA is only a couple of months away will it appear there on the Honda stand? Only time will tell?

What is your favourite concept car?
