Oh and if you haven’t read yet, you need to peep this interview:
“focus more on the background and mechanical side of a car to fully understand its history and lineage. It’s just a different way of appreciating cars.”
“The goal is to keep enjoying Hondas for a long time to come, so that’s what I will be trying to achieve. So I hope Honda enthusiasts out there can enjoy this vision together with me.”
“A good balance between power, handling and light weight. For example a GT-R is exciting because of its power but then in a corner, a small well prepared Civic will easily overtake it. So balance through tuning is our philosophy.”
