Without any doubt, the Honda Project 2&4 is one of the most interesting concepts currently on display at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany and it seems the half car / half motorcycle will receive a second phase of development in the near future. In an interview with British magazine Top Gear, the company’s designer Martin Petersson said they are going to take a “next step” with the concept as they believe it would be a big mistake to just forget about the project and move to something else.

He didn’t use the words “production version”, but the designer says the Project 2&4 has a lot of potential and it has already enjoyed a very positive feedback which is why the plan is to work on the concept more and who knows, maybe sometime in the future, there will actually be a production version which for many would probably be considered as the ultimate track toy.

We remind you the concept is a modern interpretation of the 1965 RA272 and according to Honda it blends the “freedom of the motorcycle” with the “maneuverability of the car” in a package that tips the scales at just 405 kg. It uses a competition motorcycle-derived four-stroke V-4 999cc engine with 215 bhp and 118 Nm. The engine has a 14,000 rpm redline and is coupled to a six-speed dual clutch transmission.

There’s no word regarding performances but it should be an absolute blast around the track taking into account it’s so light and packs a lot of punch for such a small vehicle. Hopefully, Honda’s engineers will find a way to turn the Project 2&4 into a production model as we are certain there would be a lot of people willing to buy this as long as it is priced just right.
