That's why I mentioned a version based on the Civic platform three posts prior:hammer::headbang::whipped: The Element was styled very much like a large Kei car.

Some of the cool detailing away, hub caps from the 90ies, and then name it after a famous race track. Really?

They're probably trying to appeal to the aftermarket crowd.The modulo edition is pretty cool I have to say.

I don't know why they're showing that picture. That's just the base N One (you can see the same image on the 1st page of this thread).

I think this might be the real Special Edition body style, but the article is super vague and labeled weirdly.

I think the N One is on of the best looking Kei cars around, it's simple, retro yet modern lines are very well executed, and unlike many rather weird JDM designs, this could appeal in every market. Probably the best design Honda has currently. And I agree, they have some cool editions, I just found the combination of a "utility goods white" super base trim picture and the "Suzuki special edition" a bit weird.

Just as if VW called their super bare base Golf with 15" hub caps and spartan interior the "Nürburg Ring Edition"....

You're absolutely right. I've always thought the same thing about the way the Japanese tend to market some of their cars... with all of those editions that make just about as much sense as tits on a wall.
