The Honda Air: Inspired By Roller Coasters & Skydiving

Honda has designed a lightweight, open car that runs on an unlikely fuel source.

The Honda Air Concept was designed by the company’s Advanced Design Studio for the 2010 LA Design Challenge. A lightweight four seater vehicle with no doors, the car is powered by compressed air, while its panels and fairings are made of vegetable-based polymers. The Air takes inspiration from modern roller coasters and skydiving wing-suits, weighing a mere 800 lbs. This is mainly due  to the chassis upon which the seats are mounted and a hub-less wheel and drive system that does away with heavy drive train components.
