The Pikes Peak Honda Odyssey will easily be one of the biggest curiosities at this summer's iconic hill climb. Honda Manufacturing of Alabama has given the iconic minivan a major makeover, turning it from a kid hauler to a respectable racer. The Pikes Peak Honda Odyssey packs a 3.5-liter turbo V6 good for 532 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. It sits on a lowered suspension and sports 19" BBS alloys wrapped in Michelin PS2 tires.

The seats and all the other interior pieces have been stripped and replaced with a full roll cage. Driving the modded Odyssey up Pikes Peak will be Simon Pagenaud, the IndyCar Series reigning rookie of the year. The Pikes Peak Honda Odyssey will be one of nine Hondas racing up the infamous hill this year. Stats for Race-Ready Minivans Trending: Older & Chilly
