The Honda Project 2&4 Still Rocks Our Socks
We Can Only Dream of Getting Behind the Wheel of the Honda Project 2&4 to Validate It Drives as Awesome as It Looks!
It’s true that after being dormant for a decade or so, Honda has once again began designing and producing sweet looking cars. In fact, we believe that 2017 completes Honda’s resurgence. Obviously, that makes us very, very happy.
Something else that makes us very happy is the Honda Project 2&4 we ran into at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. Originally unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2015, it embodies the concept of ‘creative craftsmanship,’ and it won Honda’s ‘Global Design Project.’ The internal contest is designed to highlight advanced technologies aimed to meet future automotive needs. All we can say is: if this is what the future looks like, sign us up!
The Project 2&4 is powered by the mighty Honda RC213V competition engine, which can also be found in Marc Marquez’s MotoGP championship-winning Honda motorcycle. The 999 cc V-4 four-stroke power-plant produces an astonishing 213 horsepower at 13,000 rpm, though redline doesn’t come until 14,000. Extensive usage of carbon fiber, kevlar, and other strong but lightweight materials render a gorgeous looking design, and an extremely lightweight body. How light? 839 pounds.
Unfortunately the Project 2&4 is a one-off concept at this moment. Despite success from similar machinery like the KTM X-Bow, BAC Mono, and Vuhl 05, Honda doesn’t have the desire to take this bad boy to the production line.
