Fall Out Boy Customizes Honda Civic Hybrid

LOS ANGELES — There's little doubt that the one-off Fall Out Boy Honda Civic Hybrid was inspired by the band's new album, Infinity on High. A quote by Impressionist master Vincent Van Gogh that served as the jumping-off point for the album is emblazoned on the hood in an elaborate script.

Fall Out Honda Civic HybridIt says, "Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all." Fans of the band and hybrid enthusiasts will find the custom Civic Hybrid up for grabs at starting February 9.

Honda said it let the band have at the Civic Hybrid and they designed such details as its custom metallic-black-, gunmetal- and silver-flaked paint and graphics. The car also features embroidered hemp upholstery, a custom-painted dash and door panels with Fall Out Boy graphics. Other touches include a custom-made Audix microphone shift knob, factory stereo head unit with a Honda nav system linked to additional speakers, subwoofers and amplifiers by Alpine Electronics. The Fall Out Boy Honda Civic Hybrid also gets 18-inch Konig Sideways racing-inspired rims with Dunlop sport tires, an Eibach Springs lowering suspension and a Honda Factory Performance Aero Kit and polished exhaust tip.

In yet another link to the band, the winner will get a Honda Civic Tour Fall Out Boy audio clip system from Ridetones that includes personalized messages from bassist Pete Wentz, as well as music clips from the band.

"Some of us in the band drive Hondas, so it's insane to be able to give a customized Fall Out Boy Civic Hybrid to our fans," said Wentz.

The EPA says the 2007 Honda Civic Hybrid gets 51 mpg in city driving and 49 mpg on the highway.
