A Minivan That Will Embarrass Your Sports Car


532 HP, 460 lb/ft torque, racing suspension, aggressive rubber, big brakes, and the biggest roll cage you're likely to ever see - no, that's not a Porsche 911 GT3. It's Honda's factory-backed effort at this year's Pikes Peak International Hill Climb with IndyCar racer Simon Pagenaud behind the wheel. This is the same minivan that has made a splash at recent One Lap of America events.

If Honda offers this Odyssey in its showrooms, I want one. Take all the race stickers off and it will make the perfect sleeper. Keep the 3 rows of seats and make mine with tinted windows, please.
