Honda X-Track – Hybrid Sports Car with Two Driving Modes

December 15th, 2010 by GreenDan Leave a reply »

Nikita Kalinin, a talented designer who is responsible for a number of crazy concept cars has recently unveiled its latest creation – the next-generation sports coupe dubbed Honda X-Track.

The two-seater vehicle is powered by a hybrid engine and it can be used in 2 modes: street mode and track mode.

In the street mode the car features aerodynamic body panels that considerably reduce the overall drag and allow the car to show more efficiency.

In the track mode some of the car’s parts, such as body panels and headlamps, can be removed in order to reduce the weight of the car and improve its agility.

All of the engine’s components are located in the front, which means that there’s plenty of room in the trunk.

It would be interesting to note that Honda X-Track boats KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) hybrid technology, borrowed right from the F1 program. With the help of lithium-ion batteries the car accumulates kinetic energy and converts it into electricity that can later be used.
