Honda’s CR-Z is brand-new this year, but a number of tuners are already working upgrade packages for the sporty hybrid. Wraptivo, Meguiar’s vinyl car-wrap brand, is the latest, and will show its CR-Z Type F Concept at the 2010 Specialty Equipment Market Association show.
The Type F Concept is still in the early stages of development, but is sure to include several unique exterior upgrades as well as powertrain upgrades. The concept will feature a unique Wraptivo matte and carbon black exterior vinyl wrap with gloss black accents. The vinyl wrap on the concept is meant to match the CR-Z’s sporty personality and showcase Wraptivo’s vinyl wrapping options.
In addition to a unique exterior color, Wraptivo is incorporating aero accessories from Honda’s aftermarket parts bin to give the CR-Z a “special uniqueness.”
Performance upgrades are also in the works for the Type F concept. Wraptivo is currently working with several different aftermarket tuners to develop a performance upgrade kit, and is currently working with tuner HKS, which offers a supercharger kit to make the CR-Z sound like a Formula car. Other performance enhancements will include an upgraded suspension, engine control unit remap, and exhaust modifications. Further modifications will be announced at a later date.
No SEMA concept is complete without a modified interior. As such, the Type F concept receives new Recaro sports seats, a new shifter knob, and Alcantara inserts on the door panels.
The picture shown above is an illustration of what the concept may look like when it’s unveiled at the 2010 SEMA show, which takes place starting November 2.
