The Japanese based automaker Honda has recently pulled the wraps off its latest creation, the so-called Gear Concept, during the 2013 Montreal Auto Show.
According to the car manufacturer, the Honda Gear Concept has been inspired by fixed gear bicycles and the model is actually an utilitarian vehicle, which is getting a wedge shaped design incorporating translucent accents and rounded surfaces, along with the rear diffuser, the center mounted tailpipe for the exhaust system or the hidden door handles.
“Subcompact cars are usually either utilitarian, but uninspiring or they’re fun, zippy cars that are impractical and too expensive for the Gen-Y buyer. GEAR Concept tears down those walls – it’s practical but fun, customizable, connected and affordable. Everything that young, discerning urban buyers would want in a car”, said the design director from Honda R&D Americas, Inc., Dave Marek.
Honda says that the Gear Concept is also coming with a 3M satin white vehicle wrap, with HID headlights, with Ultimate Racing exhaust and downpipe, a Megan racing suspension, Rotora big brake kit, Enkei PF01 racing wheels, K&N air intake, front sport seats and much more. Unfortunately Honda isn’t saying anything about the performance of the Gear Concept and we don’t even know what the model is hiding under its hood.
