The Honda Project 2&4 has been officially unveiled and it will be making its public debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in just a few days.
Honda’s newest creation is a concept car with a unique and minimalist design. This has been called the Project 2&4 and it will be debuting at the German automotive event next week. The model in question has been inspired from the 1965 RA272 and it is said to offer the “maneuverability of a car” combined with the “freedom of a motorcycle”.
“An example of the continuous effort by Honda to design an ever-more immersive driving experience, Honda Project 2&4 brings together the brand’s unique capabilities in two- and four-wheel mobility. Featuring the RC213V competition motorcycle engine, which has been modified to run on public roads, Honda Project 2&4 provides the freedom of a motorcycle and the maneuverability of a car”, says the automaker in its official press release.
The new Honda Project 2&4 is making use of the RC213V competition motorcycle engine, which has been modified. The unit has 999 cc and a V4 four-stroke, producing a total output of 215 HP (158 kW) and a peak torque of 118 Nm (87 lb-ft). The engine is connected to a six-speed dual clutch transmission which should enable the concept car to go from 0 to 100 km/h in no time considering the fact that this is weighing just 405 kg (893 lbs). Additional details on the Honda one-off model are limited at this time and will be announced at the 2015 IAA.
