2003 Honda Imas Concept
The bicycle; a highly manoeuvrable environmentally friendly means of transportation that responds to a riders every whim. The IMAS: a sports car designed to provide that same invigorating cutting-through-the-breeze feeling.
The design concept was to combine environmentally friendly performance with fun-to-drive sports car performance in an advanced, lightweight, aerodynamic package.
The body is made mainly of super light carbon fibre and aluminium – the overall weight is just 700 kg.
A sweeping aerodynamic shape helps achieve a drag coefficient (Cd) of just 0.20.
The efficient power plant is an update of Honda’s IMA system.
Outstanding aerodynamics, light weight and a green power plant for bicycle- like freedom of movement – that’s what the new-age lightweight IMAS sports car is all about.
