The Honda Element-D ("D" for drifting) race car shows what can happen when
enthusiastic Honda associates raid the company parts bin. Built for the racing
sport of drifting, the Honda Element-D racecar replaces the stock 4-cylinder/
Real Time™ 4WD drivetrain with a custom-designed and longitudinally-mounted
3.2-liter Honda V6 and rear-wheel-drive. Producing 500-horsepower, the lightweight
twin-turbocharged powerhouse is guaranteed to light up the rear tires
and accelerate sideways at full opposite lock. Associates from Honda R&D in
Ohio plan to campaign the Element-D in the 2007 Formula Drift Series.
