we Knew that the Honda NSX would be very present in this Pikes Peak in 2016. Already we saw how the hybrid sports nippon was presented in the versions Time Attack 1 Time Attack 2 to tackle the legendary climb. We also talk about a prototype electric who would participate, but still do not know anything of him. Now finally reveals the Honda 4-Motor EV Concept, a spectacular power that takes as its basis the NSX.
As can be seen in the images, we can distinguish between slightly to the Honda NSX under all those modifications. This prototype includes a aerodynamic kit very pronounced, which adds a huge front splitter, a new rear diffuser or the spoiler large dimensions. These items will increase your downforce to to tackle the 156 curves and almost 20 miles that make up Pikes Peak.
Another aspect of improvement over the Honda NSX series is the weight. It has been lowered thanks to elements such as the windows of polycarbonate or the light-alloy wheels that come shod with Michelin tires for competition. In charge of to get behind the wheel of this 4-Motor EV Concept will not be another Tetsuya Yamano, which already competed last year in this category with a prototype of CR-Z electric.
to feed this vehicle have been willing two electric motors high-performance, that are mounted one on each axis. This helps to get a awd and also that each wheel can receive torque independently. Still have not revealed performance figures but it will be very higher than last year. The 26th June we’ll see if this Honda 4-Motor EV Concept is able to make a good role in the ascent to Pikes Peak.
