When we first saw the concept images of the Honda’s 2&4 project, we just hoped Honda builds it. And that’s exactly what Honda has done, revealing it at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

This is Honda’s special collaboration between its automotive and motorcycle division. The car is styled like a 1960’s RA272 formula one car, but with driver seat on one side and fully exposed and suspended just inches above the road. This will give the driver a feeling of being in a car but exposed like a motorcycle. The machine has no dashboard or windshield, the driver simply gets a steering wheel.

But the best part about the car is the heart. A 1.0-liter, V4, sourced from Honda’s RC213V, yes its Honda’s MotoGP bike. Tuned down for road use, it still punches down a good 212 Bhp at 13,000 rpm and 118 Nm of torque at 10,500 rpm. The high revving engine redlines at 14,000 rpm

Honda does plan to make this car available for production, but we doubt how it will do this with its lack of safety.
