Re: Acura DN-X Concept (ClownCar)

Hm,
That looks exactly like the Honda Dualnote that debuted at Tokyo last year (wonder if Honda will produce this friendly bad boy under the Acura name?!)


Info from the 2001 Tokyo Show:
October 18, 2001 – Honda will present Dualnote, a new-generation hybrid engine concept vehicle at the Tokyo Motor Show. A mid-engined, 4-seater coupe, it delivers both performance and efficiency.
The exterior features a combination of flowing and angular elements, with airflow a major theme. The front fenders extend into a large wing form over the low hood. The triangular rear lamps frame large air outlets, which together with air intakes over the rear wheels, dominate the rear end design.
A 3.5 litre i-VTEC V6 together with an additional electric motor/generator drives the rear wheels, while two electric motors drives front wheels. The drive torque for each front wheel are controlled by computer to enhance the car's handling stablity. Total output power is 400ps. Honda claims that the fuel efficiency is 5.56 litre per 100km.

The rumor about the Dualnote at Tokyo was that it foreshadowed the next generation Legend/RL, in at least that the car would use a hybrid powertrain rather than an eight-cylinder to produce power competitive with the Q45 and LS430.

Hmm, I recall reading that the technology would resemble the next NSX. It's been awhile, so I might be mistaken.
I'm not sold on the deisgn, but the technology rocks!

This has got to have something to do with the NSX. Either it's a styling exercise that gives us cues of the next 2-seater NSX or the NSX is going to go the way of the RX-8 and morph into a 4-seater.
If this is the replacement for the traditional Acura RL sedan, instead of buying a 3-series for my next car, I'll buy an A4 (yes, I'm that confident).
