Yamaha will present a concept car sporty character in the Tokyo Motor Show 2015. What will this engine technology or prototype? The world of two wheels to four Yamaha will display a prototype sports car in the next edition of the Tokyo Motor Show to be held from October 28 to November 8 in the Japanese capital.
For now Yamaha has just released a 'teaser' or first image as a preview of this prototype. As can be seen in silhouette everything indicates that the prototype of Yamaha will have a clear sporty vocation with a coupe design type and numerous touches own aggressive and aerodynamic sports car.
It is not the first time that Yamaha a manufacturer known for its motorcycles quads jet skis and snowmobiles enters the world of cars. Fruit of the experience of Yamaha as an engine supplier in Formula One between 1989 and 1997 in 1992 introduced a brutal sport with technology and V12 Formula One engine with certain similarities to that used the cars of the time. That prototype by the name of OX99-11 and the first tests ensured that could exceed 350 km / h top speed with an acceleration of 0-100 km / h in just over 3 seconds. The economic situation was not ideal and Yamaha had to give this ambitious project.
23 years later it seems that almost permanently Yamaha wants to come back in the world of automobiles in a big way with a performance car whose technical data for the moment unknown. On engine type and technology that will lead the future sports car Yamaha several alternatives are being considered.
The first alternative would be the sporting future of Yamaha could take one of the engines of some of its motorcycles as happened recently with the prototype presented by Honda Project 2 & 4 last Frankfurt Motor Show.
The second alternative is that Yamaha could be preparing a sports car with hybrid technology using their experience with motorcycles and scooters hundred percent adapted to a hybrid electric car.
Pending confirmation of official data by Yamaha can you imagine a comparison between a KTM X-Bow (this engine and change of origin Volkswagen) and future Honda Project 2 & 4 and thoroughbred Yamaha? The thrill of two wheels moved at four much closer.
