    What happends to all these concept cars once they make their debut?

    Are they just shoved into a garage for ever? I bet they just get dismantled.

    They get auctioned off to collectors...

    and most of them don't run.. or even have motors for that matter.

    Quite a few of the concept actually go into their parent company's storage.

    I've seen that concept before. I thought it was posted here?

    No, actually it HAS been posted here many times before... When it first came onto the scene...


    in 1999.


    Also, most concept cars are bought up by the Sultan of Brunei :)

    The first Honda automotive product to actually go into production was the T360 truck in June of 1963. With a slightly detuned version of the S360 engine, it produced 30 horsepower at 8,500 rpm. Between June 1963 and August 1967, Honda produced 108,920 of these "sports trucks" in four different versions; a T360 with a conventional pick up truck bed (pictured); a T360F flat bed with wooden slats; a T360H with a flat pick up truck bed and sides that fold in addition to the tailgate; and a T360V "panel van" with an enclosed, hard cap over the bed.




    HAHAHA, 8500 RPMS!! That shit outrevved most everything they make. I changed my mind, I want 5.

    I searched the sight for "Spocket" and nothing came up...

    anywho..


    A quad carb, DOHC, high reving engine that produced 30 HP??

    I mean, could you really de tune something that hard core? Did it have 10mm valves or something??

    And that was a "sport truck" baby... good stuff.

    it used a 360cc motorcycle engine (they also had a 500cc model... guess what that one was called)
    all of hondas original cars used motorcycle engines
    the 4 carbs are the same individual carbs that most motorcycles ran before they switched to fuel injection

    I've always day dreamed of a turbo hybusa powered crx.

    You'd have to re-gear it and work out a drive system, But other than that:

    WAY less weight, 300HP fairly easily, and you could rev to 15k.. Take that BIATCH.

    It'd be a fast lil fucker.

    *edit*
    I suppose you could do a 1000rr engine and keep it all in the family.. [​IMG]

    The lack of low end would own you driving around town, but it'd be nasty out on the highway or at the track.

    No, I want a car powered by a Busa Hybrid V8. They took 2 busa engines and mated them to make a v8 thats the size of a b-series and produces ~300hp.

    Christ, it would be easier to CNC a custom block and crank and use hybusa heads.

    and who are "they" and do they lock the garage at night??

    I don't know who "they" is, but it was in an SCC a while back. Might have been august last year, I think it had a white WRX converted to RWD on the cover.
