HSC (Honda Sports Concept)
A new-age high-performance mid-engine sports car that anyone can drive


The HSC was created to deliver the joy of a sports car and the thrill of free-spirited driving in a package that anyone can handle. It combines the ultimate in vehicle performance with carefree handling accessible to all.

The HSC is a pure sports car, offering driving exhilaration that until now only a professional could experience. The long wheelbase and short overhangs help maximize performance.

Located mid-ship for better handling, the lightweight compact V6 engine is designed for high efficiency and an output in excess of 300 horsepower. A paddle-shift shift lever makes for instant gear changing.

The HSC delivers liberating technology in a machine accommodating enough for any driver.

It all started with the S500, Honda?s first automobile a two-seat sports car ? and the HSC is the latest inheritor of the Honda sports DNA.

The HSC ? a pure sports car for the new age.

Dimensions: 4250 x 1900 x 1140 (l x w x h)


IMAS
Lightweight hybrid sports car that cuts through the breeze like a bicycle


The bicycle; a highly maneuverable environmentally friendly means of transportation that responds to a rider?s every whim. The IMAS: a sports car designed to provide that same invigorating cutting-through-the-breeze feeling.

The design concept was to combine environmentally friendly performance with fun-to-drive sports car performance in an advanced, lightweight, aerodynamic package.

The body is made mainly of super light carbon fibre and aluminum ? the overall weight is just 700 kg.

A sweeping aerodynamic shape helps achieve a drag coefficient (Cd) of just 0.20.

The efficient power plant is an update of Honda?s IMA system.

Outstanding aerodynamics, light weight and a "green" power plant for bicycle - like freedom of movement - that?s what the new-age lightweight IMAS sports car is all about.

Dimensions: 4050 x 1755 x 1300 (l x w x h)



KIWAMI
Advanced fuel cell technology + traditional Japanese aesthetics = a premium saloon


Honda was the world?s first automaker to bring a fuel cell car to market.

The KIWAMI matches Honda?s clean-performing fuel cell technology with the Japanese aesthetic of cleanliness to create an ideal saloon for the next generation.

The beauty of a landscape as it changes hues with the seasons; the gentle murmur of a clean flowing stream; the scent of a new season carried on the breeze.

The Japanese aesthetic sensibility and values are expressed in this unique vehicle, with its quietly strong, minimalist stance. KIWAMI?s form embodies a simple primitive beauty, yet advanced intelligent technologies concealed within ensure a quiet, safe, pleasant ride.

Advanced packaging technology that made possible the lower floor ensures a roomy interior despite the vehicle?s low overall height.

The interior design reflects the Japanese sense of a luxurious relaxing atmosphere.

The latest in clean-running fuel-cell technology meets the beauty of traditional Japan in this new premium saloon.

Dimensions: 4500 x 1820 x 1250 (l x w x h)
