It aseems that Honda is maybe serious with its wonderful Project 2&4 concept.
If you didn’t know, this was a roadster that was originally presented at the 2015 Frankfurt auto show. Honda designers made a concept car that tried to fill the gap between the world of motorcycles and high-performance sports cars. Therefore the 2&4 name.
It seems that Honda is might ready to bring a version of this concept to life.
The producer is eyeballing an electric powertrain instead of the racing bike engine that originally was on the concept
New patent drawings that Honda filed show that the producer is at least trying to protect a car making a strong similarity to the 2&4 concept. However, the producer is eyeballing an electric powertrain instead of the racing bike engine that originally was on the concept. The aim here could be to make an Ariel Atom rival that uses the wonderful thing that is instant torque. Also, it would be much more interesting to see how Ariel takes the news seeing that they get their own engines from Honda.
Also one more difference is that the vehicle in the patent drawings has two seats while the concept had just one. However, the passenger seat can be removed, according to attached to the patent drawings. There are also additional protective elements on the patent drawing.
The original concept vehicle was powered by the mightily impressive engine that they took from used the Honda MotoGP racing bikes. It’s a 1 corny in a car that tips the scales at just 900 pounds.
