An extreme vision of a hydrogen-powered sports car
By Stuart Schwartzapfel
At this year's Los Angeles Auto Show (Nov. 21-30), Honda (HMC) unveiled its FC Sport Concept. Anything but conventional, the FC Sport is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell and has only three seats. Developed by Honda's Advanced Design Studio in Pasadena, Calif., the concept car's exterior is likely its most arresting aspect. A glacier-white shell is wrapped in extreme, Lamborghini-like body lines. What's more, its hydrogen storage tanks are visible in the rear through a set of glass panels similar to high-end Ferraris. No word yet on whether Honda will try to bring a version to market.
The Verdict: Extreme and extremely green machine.
