A breath of compressed air…

Air vs Petrol… who would win?

The challenge set was to build a safe, comfortable car that weighed less than 1,000 lb (454kg), could seat four easily, but had to look good. So not the easiest of tasks, then. And this is what Honda came up with. Powered by compressed air, it was not original, as Volvo (amongst others) also built an air-powered car. But none of that matters. What matters is this: It’s a Honda. Not a company renowned for thrilling, radical cars. (Except maybe the NSX and the Civic Type R.) So if they can come up with something that looks like this, they may have some hidden talent with building exciting cars. Then we could send them a letter, asking them to use this talent in new production cars, and Hondas would be interesting, and the world would be happy.

Just don’t be surprised if you get a letter from me soon.
