The Bisimoto-tuned Honda Odyssey practically called out to us from across the convention center—it’s that cool. Poking through a hole where the grille used to be is a big, shiny clue as to the specialness that resides in this minivan’s engine bay: A twin-turbocharged V-6 engine making a silly 1029 horsepower. (The shiny bit actually is the van’s massive intercooler.) Better still, the stock Odyssey’s automatic transmission was chucked in favor of a six-speed manual borrowed from a 2008 Acura TL Type-S. Yup, a manual minivan with stupid amounts of horsepower. (No word on whether this Odyssey had the built-in vacuum cleaner, though.) Mix in the lowered suspension, rooftop cargo box, and sweet Fifteen52 wheels, you’ll need a hard pinch to your arm to ensure it’s not a dream before you start dreaming about how to build one for yourself.
