A smart attempt at a concept car is the Yamaha Sports Concept introduced by Yamaha in partnership with Gordon Murray Design – a dream 2-Seater Sports Car. If Yamaha sets out to build a sports car, what would its design be like? This sports car concept fuses quintessential sports car proportions with uniquely Yamaha ideas that draw on their specialties as a manufacturer of various mobility products.
The tangible design elements evocative of motorcycles throughout the car entice the driver to get behind the wheel. This car uses a lightweight iStream Carbon chassis developed by UK-based Gordon Murray Design and is the world’s first affordable high volume carbon fiber chassis structure and has the potential to bring Formula One materials and technology to the masses.
Thanks to the lightweight chassis, the Yamaha Sports Ride Concept tips the scales at just 750 kg (1,653 lbs). Furthermore, iStream Carbon sets new standards in the automotive industry for chassis light weighting, rigidity and safety. For full features or more details about this product visit www.yamaha.com
