The Honda Civic is a perennial favorite of tuners, and for the 2008 SEMA show in Las Vegas, Honda revealed a new Honda Factory Performance (HFP) Concept version of the fuel-sipping sedan.

The theory behind the concept? Tuners want to preserve high gas mileage, so the accessories chosen--like the aerodynamic wheel covers and super-light wheels are teamed with the usual body add-ons, suspension upgrades and a new exhaust system that could boost fuel economy as well as the Civic's performance.
