Honda Project 2&4 concept to be powered by RC213V MotoGP engine

Honda Project 2&4 concept to be powered by RC213V MotoGP engine

Honda has released a teaser of its newest concept car, the Project 2&4, ahead of its unveiling at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Jointly developed by the Japanese manufacturer’s car and motorcycle design teams, the Project 2&4 is an open cockpit sportscar powered by the engine of MotoGP winning race bike – the Honda RC213V.

The Project 2&4 is actually the winning entry of an internal design competition conducted between Honda’s global design studios. It was created by Honda’s motorcycle design centre in Asaka and its automotive design centre in Wako, Japan. Built around a ‘cabin-less structure’, we can expect it to take a track-focussed approach like the Ariel Atom and the KTM X-Bow. 

Honda says that the Project 2&4 is powered by the RC213V MotoGP engine, which has been modified to make it suitable for street use. This means that we can expect it to get a toned-down version of the 999cc V4 powertrain which powers the street-legal RC213V-S race replica, rather than the full-blown MotoGP engine. 

The Project 2&4 will make its debut in Frankfurt, Germany, on September 15. We can expect further details to be revealed as the date draws closer.
