The Dualnote maybe not very pretty but it only burn 1 gallon of fuel every 40 miles. Don't get me wrong but i think it's very impressive. The interior of the car is incredible. You have a racing steering wheel and each side of your seat (when you're the dirver) you can control anything in the car very easily. In other words you have a 3D console to control anything you want.When i say 3D believe me it is! This car is a revolution in the automotive industries and i hope this car come out because his engine is unique.
What the hell?
This thing is UGLY and it'll never see production as I'm sure it cost about the typical product budget to just build this one concept. I hope I don't see that styling on anything anytime soon. Honda's already going downhill anyway. Ever since the current Civic was unveiled I've been asking myself how long their going to ride their reputation with inferior products.
This car is Stunning, its not the best looking car in the world, but the performance is what makes it soo special, the idea behind it is a great one, its just like an NSX with a different body and a big motor powering the front wheels, this car would eat Skylines for dinner and still have room for a ferrari 355. I think Honda have set the mark for electronic cars, lets see if any other Marques follow in their footsteps.
