When it comes to fun-to-drive rides, minivans are probably the last thing we think of. Spacious, versatile, and kid-friendly are far better adjectives to describe America’s favorite family hauler. Well, except maybe for this particular example.
We’re referring to a 2014 Honda Odyssey that was tuned by Bisimoto. First seen at the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show, the pearl black-colored Honda packs something special under the hood—a motor that puts out 1,029hp! The whopping figure is courtesy of a massaged version of the 3.5-liter V6 mill, complete with a turbocharger and some other goodies.
The engine mods consist of a Turbonetics 7265 turbine and RG45 wastegate, Godzilla blowoff valve, Spearco intercooler, Arias 9.0:1 forged pistons and R&R rods, fully ported heads and supertech valvetrain, web level 2.4 cams, and Golden Eagle sleeves and ARP studs. All this hardware is governed by an AEM infinity engine control system which supplies the most potent thrust.
Putting all that juice to the ground is a six-speed manual transmission (yes, manual on a minivan). Adjustable air ride suspension helps keep things shiny side-up, as do a set of sticky 255/30R20 Toyo tires that wrap nicely around custom 20-inch alloys.
Being a minivan, passengers are pampered in leather-clad seats. And with this much power under the hood, a four-point roll cage is thrown in for good measure.
The icing on the cake, though, is that this minivan is actually being sold. Mecum Auctions will handle the sale, though it hasn’t revealed how much the power van will go for. This would definitely be a cool way to bring the kids to school.
