We already wrote about Yamaha's project to produce a sports car trying to master a new area for the company that specialises in high-performance motorbikes. The Japanese manufacturer has just introduced its radical new Sports Ride concept at the Tokyo Motor Show 2015. Its Sports Ride concept previews a potential sports car from the company.
The Yamaha Sports Ride concept measures 3.9 metres in length, is 1.7 metres wide and just 1.1 metres high. Thanks to its implementation of a carbon fibre structure, the Sports Ride concept weighs a mere 750 kg and can set two. From all points of view it is quite an exciting prospect and from a styling standpoint, is unquestionably Japanese and looks much more exotic than compact sports cars it could potentially compete against.
It includes slimline LED headlights at the front, as well as prominent air intakes and two splitters at each side of the front bumper. It also includes eye-catching rear haunches which flow up to a small spoiler located just above two centrally-existing exhausts. Besides, the Yamaha Sports Ride concept has horizontal LED taillights and a subtle rear diffuser.
