When you take peanut butter and mix it with jelly, wrapped between two slices of bread you get a one tasty snack. When two great things that taste so good come together to make something so amazing is what you call perfect harmony. Similarly, Honda was inspired to take people from their car and bike divisions and tell them to take a RC213V engine from their MotoGP bike and make a minimalist car. An in-house competition with the theme ‘Exposure’ resulted in the maddest lunatic Honda that can make you scream your trousers off.
The winning car was the Honda Project 2&4 concept and it is as minimal as a car can be. With the world’s fastest V4 motorcycle engine in the middle and and some bits to form a structure for a seat, connected to four wheels is all you get. Every component is visible to the naked eye. Its power-to-ratio is crazy with numbers like 212bhp and a weight of 405kgs. As scary and exciting as it sounds, unfortunately, it will never see the light of day as it is strictly a concept. Sorry guys.
