Two Japanese giants showed supercars, one building a hybrid supercar for the first time, while the other building a car very rarely. A car for the first time and that company is Yamaha.
Honda unveiled the near production ready NSX supercar with technical specification given out while Yamaha just showed what according to them should a car look like. The Honda NSX features three electric motors and a twin-turbo V6 VTEC engine that can put out over 570 bhp.
Yamaha is known for its motorcycles and not cars. So if Yamaha does decide on making, sure it does grab eyeballs. Te company unveiled a concept called Sports Ride which has been inspired from a motorcycle and is light weight in nature. The concept features iStream process that provides lightweight, high-rigidity, high-strength frame. The iStream has been developed by Gordon Murray Design ltd. and has its origins in Formula One technology.
The concept car weight just 750kg weight which does justice to the tag ‘inspired by motorcycle’ and measures just 3.9m long, 1.7m wide and stands just 1.17m tall. No technical specification have been revealed.
